Since decades it's known and multiple times reported by Australian fans/collectors, that this "promo" is just a self-made goodie from a local (Melbourne) Record store... = it's not an official item and this submission should be merged with the regular edition (Graffiti Bridge) but it's to expect that some collectors will gonna be against it because they are terribly disappointed because for burned (usually a lot of) money for a cheap piece of clothing - usually the kind of collector who purchased on eBay a bag of air from 4/14/16 The Fox Theatre, Atlanta - however... discogs is sometimes not consequent when it comes to this kind of things... - however you are informed now - decide by yourself ;-)

First, think of a movie as a two-hour video and then accept the album as an accompanying audio counterpart.

Sure this film was mainly an experiment - musicals generally are an experiment in the film context. Some of them are superb, many are pure lemonade... And "Graffiti Bridge" isn't a catastrophe many tend to present, more of a clumsy "west side (love) story" attempt that didn't work. The music, of course, saves a great deal and the only "downside" to it is it's rather a compilation of songs that didn't surface on previous albums where they should have, here presented under the "excuse" of a soundtrack.

"The Question Of U" actually was originally written at the time of "Under The Cherry Moon", so there's no need to speculate on that one. And yes, it's an ace piece. "Joy In Repetition" also dates from around the same time (and features the same crowd noise sound that was previously included on Lovesexy's "Eye No"). On the other hand, comparing this album to "Batman" is a little bit baffling. The only "link" to "Batman" is the fact "Graffiti Bridge" is a soundtrack album, but altogether features a far greater variety of collaborators aside from Prince alone.

Technically stellar but deceptively stunning on the surface, "Batman" is one of Prince's less greater albums. "Graffiti Bridge" is far richer in styles it explores and exploits. Its principal hits - "Thieves In The Temple" and "The New Power Generation" are typical funky Prince tunes that carry the promotional side of an album which offers a wider range of songs that should have been even greater hits. Revaluing the album almost 30 years later may seem a bit pathetic in a "nostalgic" attempt at something that at the time felt like a muse gone dry, but "Graffiti Bridge" stood its test of time a great deal.

"Release It", "Round And Round", "Shake", "Can't Stop This Feeling I Got", "Melody Cool", "Elephants And Flowers", "We Can Funk", "Tick Tick Bang" and the closing ballad "Graffiti Bridge" to name a few from the vast collection, speak volumes standing in its defense. Maybe not "Sign O'The Times" as such but still its own collection of remarkable genius that is Prince (and his brigade of amazing collaborators).

To the three helpful reviews here from 2012, 2015 and 2016 I would like to add one little thing: The best song of this Album is, along with "The Quesion Of U", the ballad "Joy In Repetition". As nobody has mentioned this tune, I feel obliged to do so now.

Just got the OG Canadian version. It may have been mastered for CD, can't tell yet. Some songs sound better than other. Not quite audiophile quality, but not bad.

Repressing coming November !!!!! Don't pay these people $79 for it. They didn't make the art, Prince did. They don't deserve to profit off his death.

Some of the albums in this particular batch fall in the era when CD sales took over the industry, and Warners and the other big record companies made little to no vinyl editions of the records. These new pressings will feature the albums in their original format (no bonus tracks). Here’s the full list of what’s to come:

June 21st: “Around the World in A Day” (1985)
July 19th: “Parade (Under the Cherry Moon soundtrack)” (1986)
August 23rd: “Sign o’ the Times”(1987)
September 20th: “The Black Album”(1987 recorded; 1994 released)
October 18th: “Lovesexy” (1988) and “Batman” soundtrack (1989)
November 22nd: “Graffiti Bridge” soundtrack (1990) and “Diamonds and Pearls” (1991)
December 13th: “The Love Symbol” (1992)

Even though the movie positivily sucked!!!!!, Graffiti Bridge is not that bad of an album. Actually it's really good! With "Thieves In The Temple"(the best song), "New Power Generation", and "The Question Of U", this album ran rings around "Batman!" It also was helpful to have The Time (Shake), Tevin Campbell (Round and Round), and Mavis Staples (Melody Cool) on this set. I think if the movie didn't suck eggs so bad, this album would have done better, but oh well, it's not "Purple Rain!" We can be so glad that P's movie career stopped here, but keep the music commin' P!!!!!!!!

What, no one has an opinion of this? Ok, Graffiti Bridge is not Prince finest hour, though it survived the tremendous flop that was the movie. This soundtrack to the movie you will never see has a mix of the classic Prince funky jams, some of the new jack swing Prince already suggested in the Batman songs, and some collaboration of artists he supported. Individually there are great songs all along the album, either from Prince or any of his friends , but among them, clear standouts: "The question of U", a ballad that could only be composed by Prince (and which seems like a second part of "Under the cherry Moon") with an amazing guitar solo, and the amazingly funky (and pure new jack swing delight) "Round and Round" sang by a 13 year old Tevin Campbell. The rest? Up to your choice. Prince still had its touch and one cannot deny that there is a lot of care behind this songs, but unfortunately his best ideas were abandoning him and his audience was already being alienated.
