Notes:
1999 is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was released on October 27, 1982, by Warner Bros. Records. 1999 was Prince's breakthrough album, but his next album, Purple Rain, would become his most successful. The title track was a protest against nuclear proliferation and became his first top ten hit in countries outside the United States.

The album was his first top ten album on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States (peaking at number 9, besting that peak at number 7 after his death in 2016) and became the fifth best-selling album of 1983 overall, eventually being certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.

The first CD pressing omitted "D.M.S.R.", while all cassette copies moved "Free" to appear after "D.M.S.R" to close the first side. A 1LP version omitting 4 songs was issued in various countries across South America, Europe and Asia in 1983 and reissued worldwide as part of Record Store Day 2018; its cassette variant, which added "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore" and "D.M.S.R.", has as of 2019 not been reissued.

Great record. Sound quality on all versions sound like all treble rolled off. To make it sound ok you must boost treble drastically. Original LP, CDs, and remasters. This album needs to be remixed.

Both of my discs were pressed with very different vinyl: disc one is almost solid opaque, disc 2 is the usual splattered, translucent affair. Weird!

How about the sound quality of this "Specialty Records Corporation Pressing"?
Same like the other first pressings?

1999 never sounded as good: this Remaster credits the Master of Funk with absolute brilliance!
Excellent work, Bernie Grundman!

Is there any way of getting Prince’s original version of Purple Music on vinyl? Want a copy but don’t want to have to pay 200+ for a box set....

"Dirty Mind" was Prince's singular foray into rock and new wave, whereas its follow-up, the refreshingly relevant "Controversy", revised his former R&B/soul sound of the '70s by incorporating synthesizers to a great degree, which he reiterated with his third album of the decade, "1999". Comprised mainly of synth-and-drum-machine arrangements composed by Prince himself, the resulting product was mechanical yet intricate and the songwriting much improved, thus elevating the quality of the album above the level reached by his preceding efforts. Prince's lyrical imagery diversified to a greater extent than it had on the socially conscious "Controversy", with augmented emphasis on more varied subjects, namely vivid sexual fantasies of cab drivers and bondage, attacks on hipster critics, nuclear proliferation, apocalypse anticipation and Computer Age themes.

"1999", "Delirious" and "Little Red Corvette" encompass the less electronic open salvo of side one, bolstered by organic-sounding instrumentation in comparison with the extended grooves covering sides two, three and four, all of which spotlight computer-based synth funk exploration and kinetic, inventive song construction. In spite of the lengthy nature of the album and its dyadic duality, the division of thematic suites is an imperious formula that flows spectacularly well, assigning a logic and continuity to the album as a whole, with amplified depth and finesse embedded in each track, even the less accessible deep cuts are infectious.

Seeking to widen his audience beyond the expansion of his musical range, Prince had already adopted a new image and performance style, including his trademark predilection for the colour purple, but on this album it became more pronounced and defined; even the almost entirely purple-emblazoned front cover features elements of the previous "Controversy" artwork within the title font. With this album, Prince became a staple of radio and TV, earning him a well-deserved place in the public psyche, establishing himself at the forefront of the '80s Minneapolis funk explosion. "1999" exposed Prince to a wider rock audience and acknowledged his stunningly talented and crucial backing band, endowing him as a photogenic MTV video star and foreshadowing what was to come with his next project.

Awash with rich, nuanced electronic sounds, broader lyricism and heightened sophistication, "1999" is far too experimental to be considered Prince's greatest and fully-realised achievement, that honour goes to "Purple Rain", with the creative culmination of his matchless career and magnum opus being "Sign 'O' The Times", but I would still assess that it codified Prince, predating his consignment as a musical icon. In terms of quality, it is unquestionably as strong as "Dirty Mind", but "1999" was the first of Prince's exceptional 1980s albums to truly demonstrate a distinctive sonic template that would evolve and vitalize even further.

Rating: Indispensable

Kudos to whoever picked the selections for the 'Promo Mixes & B-Sides Remastered' disc!
You couldnt ask for a more comprehensive selection of remixes from the 1999 release.
Long have i waited for the remastered 7" or Edited versions of the remixes!
The remasters are indeed up to par with any excellent quality remastering.
RIP Prince, your music lives on through Remastered Reissues.

Thanks.
