Prince released too many official and unofficial records during his cruelly short lifetime for most of us to catch up with so much good music. We knew he was a genius while he was still with us (well, I got that ever since discovering Prince when 'Controversy' was released), but now he's dead, like some said about Napoleon, he's even greater dead than living.

Ian Penman wrote a great article on Prince for the London Review of Books, titled "The Question of U". It also appears in his essay collection "It Gets Me Home, This Curving Track", which I would recommend to any music enthusiast.

It is absolutely stupid that the "Prince & The Revolution"-releases are not listed here.
Everyone searching discogs for a Prince discography expects these records to be filed under "Prince".
It gets even more stupid when you see the "Prince & The NPG"- and "Prince & 3rdEyeGirl"-releases in this list here.

Agree with Vog's comment, all of Prince's work should be included in one place, it's daft to treat Prince & The Revolution separately

Been listening to a lot of Prince recently since his rediculously early death. Was the first artist I started listening to from about 12 years old and have loved him ever since ( I am 47 now!). I struggled with his material after the Black Album but he was still able to surprise and keep the funk and I don't care what anybody else says there was no better live act on the planet! His first 11 albums plus all the brilliant extended versions on the 12"s mean so much to me, they bring back so many memories, being at Wembley for the first night of Lovesexy and coming on stage in a car! Going to see under the cherry moon at the cinema in Leicester Square and being the only person in there with my mate, sitting at the front and dancing to every song!! I will treasure his music until I am old and grey! Miss you Christopher Tracey!!

It makes ZERO sense that Discogs includes the NPG and 3rdeyegirl (and 94 East?!) albums here but lists the Revolution albums and "Artist" albums separately. Please just put them all in the same place. Thanks.
Also 1999 is a Revolution album. And the German release of the Gold Experience promo is here. Lord, what a mess.

Wondering if anyone can help with a release. I've got a "Kiss" bootleg, white label single sided, no info at all, kind of breakbeat/house (not the Daft Punk one!!!). I can't find any info anywhere and went through all the releases on this page. Anyone have any hints on this? It was bought in the early 2000s I think. Many thanks.
