Overall I'm happy with the boxed set. The photos are nice and had they opted for heavier photo paper these would look great framed. It is missing two photos that were included with the CD, I guess that makes the CD set more valuable. The sound and quality of the vinyl tracks is great. Some may say this is just another timely "money-grab" by the horrid Warner Bros. But as long as the overall quality is at it's best, who cares? Prince may have died but his music will live on.

Great boxset to buy when you want to discover his work. Very good sounding pressing!

I have original US presses of Purple Rain and 1999. Just did a side by side of 'When Doves Cry', off of Purple Rain and the box set. They were very close in sound, the drums and bass seemed about the same and maybe a small edge to Purple Rain version for soundstage/air overall. This pressing is high quality (flat and quiet) and so are the details (graphics, sleeves, etc). I can see the gripes about the timing and content of this box set, but it is a fun listen.

I don’t have that much Prince stuff so I’ll just comment on the pressing. Mine shipped in a box that had a sticker on it that indicated it was pressed at optimal and it’s cut by Kevin Grey, tick and tick! The vinyl is flat, clean and centred with virtually no surface noise, sounds nice and punchy on my system and I’m very happy with it.

Why is this listed as "Europe" edition while notes say "printed in U.S.A." and "made in U.S.A."???
