The word "genius" may be used a little too freely when describing pop musicians, but many would have to agree that Prince is deserving of such an accolade. Since his 1978 debut album, the Minneapolis-based multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/singer has scored numerous hits with his sexually charged, original funk/pop/dance/rock style, penned big hits for other artists, and has even tried his hand at acting as well. In the early 1990s, Prince's name-changing antics and his messy break with Warner Brothers overshadowed his music, but his extensive back catalog of amazing songs has secured his place in musical history.
This special package contains both volumes of as well as an exclusive third disc of B-sides and unreleased cuts, many never before available on compact disc. No Track Information Available Media Type: CD Artist: PRINCE Title: HITS-THE B-SIDES Street Release Date: 09/14/1993 Domestic Genre: ROCK/POP
Assignment: To write 100 words on 56 songs by the greatest artist the ''80s produced. Even with single edits substituting for full-length versions in a handful of cases, The Hits/The B-Sides is a mighty testament to the man we once called Prince. (For that matter, we still do.) In addition to most of his singles, from "I Wanna Be Your Lover" to "Thieves in the Temple," from "When Doves Cry" to "7," this triple-CD set throws in some worthwhile new music and a full disc of the fantastic flips that made buying 7- and 12-inches a must even when you already owned the A-side. "You can be the side effect," he mutters herein. "I''d rather be the dope." Witness some of the funkiest pharmaceuticals around. --Rickey Wright
