Hi there! So I have been reading all comments and looks like the CDs audio quality sound is crap basically and.... LPs good? Just good or good enough, not exceptional? If they are not worthy, what would you recommend if I want to discorverd Prince with a 1 or 2 great best audio LPs (please Purple rain hast obe in there). Which version, year to get the best audio quality? Thanks guys, cheers, Martin

There's only one reason this piece of crap saw the light of day: Christmas time. The perfect gift for under the tree for those who 'kinda like Prince', never mind the audio quality of the material recycled here, never mind the countless, good for nothing edits and on top of all this misery they included -strap yourself in- ONE unreleased song 'from the vault'. Yeah! ONE song from the vault! Four unreleased minutes of music... Of course we all knew a crap compilation like this would come out sooner or later. A waste of resources that confirms every prejudice against record companies that you can have.

This set isn't even remastered. Little Red Corvette still has distortion on the vocals to prove it and all the songs have various volume levels. Moonbeam Levels is obviously remastered but the rest of the songs are not. All in all a rushed cash grab jumping on Prince's death.
