    Purple Rain (Remastered)

    Ranked 72/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    2015 Paisley Park Remaster


    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Prince designed Purple Rain as the project that would make him a superstar, and that's exactly what happened. Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and funk on nine superbly crafted songs.


    Although Prince's songwriting is at a peak, the presence of the Revolution helps pull the music into even sharper focus, giving it a tougher, more aggressive edge. When Doves Cry is an eerie, spare neo-psychedelic masterpiece, Let's Go Crazy is a furious blend of metallic guitars, Stonesy riffs, and a hard funk backbeat. And the anthemic title track is a majestic ballad filled with a brilliant guitar outro. All in all, Purple Rain is a stunning statement of purpose that remains one of the most exciting rock & roll albums ever created.

    1999

    Ranked 163/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.


    Lacquers Cut By Chris Bellman At Bernie Grundman Mastering


    1999 is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was released on October 27, 1982 by Warner Bros. Records. The album was his first top ten album on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States (peaking at number 9) and became the fifth best-selling album of 1983 and was certified Multi-Platinum by RIAA. 1999 was Prince's breakthrough album, but his next album, Purple Rain, would become his most successful. The title track was a protest against nuclear proliferation and became his first top ten hit in countries outside the United States.


    It was also the first album to feature The Revolution. The band's moniker is written in reverse on the front cover.


    According to the Rolling Stone Album Guide, 1999 may be Prince's most influential album: Its synth-and-drum machine-heavy arrangements codified the Minneapolis sound that loomed over mid-'80s R&B and pop, not to mention the next two decades' worth of electro, house, and techno. In 2003, the TV network VH1 placed 1999 49th in its list of the greatest albums of all time. The album was also part of Slant Magazine's list The 50 Most Essential Pop Albums and the magazine listed the album at #8 on its list of Best Albums of the 1980s. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2008. In 2003, the album was ranked number 163 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

    Soul Eyes

    Singer, songwriter and pianist Kandace Springs will release her debut full-length album Soul Eyes on Blue Note Records. Produced by Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein (Lizz Wright, Melody Gardot, Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock), the album touches upon soul and pop while channeling her jazz influences as well as her Nashville upbringing. Kandace counts such stylists as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack and Norah Jones as her heroes, but as evidenced by Soul Eyes, Springs mimics none of them.


    Kandace's journey to discovering her uniqueness didn't happen overnight. In fact, her 2014 self-titled debut EP had a decidedly contemporary R&B/hip-hop bent with production by Pop & Oak (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Miguel). The EP was incredibly well-received and led to performances on Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as well as appearances at the Afropunk and Bonnaroo festivals.


    Kandace was dubbed a "suave songstress" (Wall Street Journal), "a versatile and vital artist" (Afropunk), and "a vocal force to be reckoned with" (Okayplayer). Essence Magazine named her a New & Next artist and Interview Magazine made her their Music Discovery, writing that while "Hearing the word jazz might revert a listener's thoughts to the music of yesteryear...Up-and-comer Kandace Springs aims to change this notion. The singer, songwriter, and pianist blends elements of soul, jazz, and pop, producing a unique and modern twist on the genre that appeals to young and old listeners alike."


    As amazing an experience as that was, as Kandace got ready to record her album she couldn't shake the feeling that she wasn't yet singing her true self. Conversations with her longtime producers Carl Sturken and Evan Rogers led to soul searching and rethinking her musical direction. Also during this period, Kandace attracted the attention of Prince, who heard her makeover of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" on the website Okayplayer. The music icon invited her to perform with him at Paisley Park for the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain. "He encouraged me a lot before I recorded this new record, especially during the time in which I was trying to figure out my sound," Kandace says. "He told me that I needed to do what comes naturally to me. He was absolutely right."


    For Soul Eyes, Kandace continued working closely with Rogers and Sturken, but they also recruited Klein to help the singer bring out her distinctive artistic traits. "Larry wanted me to be free in the studio," she recalls. "I've been through a lot of other sessions in which the producer tries to take control of your sound. Larry was just like, 'Go in and play what you feel.' That ultimately led to the best outcome; he captured this record perfectly."


    Klein praises Kandace as a "natural." "In this era, in which flash and hunger for fame is often equated with talent, she's that rare person who sings and plays because that is what she needs to do in life," he says. "When I first heard Kandace, I was sold after hearing one song. Her smoky voice coupled with a sense of phrasing way beyond her years, and her angular way of accompanying herself on piano grabbed me right away."


    The eleven songs contained on Soul Eyes are a mix of Kandace's originals and co-writes as well as the jazz classic "Soul Eyes" and songs by Jesse Harris, Shelby Lynne, War, and others. The album features Kandace's playing piano alongside an illustrious cast of musicians that includes trumpeter Terence Blanchard, guitarists Dean Parks and Jesse Harris, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, organist Pete Kuzma, bassist Dan Lutz, percussionist Pete Korpela.

    Rock In Rio - Vol 1

    In 1991 Prince and The NPG were invited to play two dates as part of Rock In Rio 2, the second edition of the Brazilian-based music festival, the largest in the world. The result, presented here across over two instalments, is perhaps one of the finest shows in musical history. With the crowd in the palm of his hand throughout, Prince put on a quite superlative performance, as thrilling as ever, and featured such legendary tracks as 'Purple Rain', 'Kiss', 'Nothing Compares 2 U' and a staggering 28 minutes medley of 'Baby I'm A Star'.


    Captured here in the highest available quality, the entire performance remains a poignant reminder of what an immense talent the world has lost.

    Let's Go Crazy

    Let's Go Crazy was the opening track on both the album and the film Purple Rain. One of Prince's most popular songs, Let's Go Crazy was almost always a staple for concert performances, often segueing into other hits. When released as a single, the song became Prince's second number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and also topped the two component charts, the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Dance Club Play charts, as well as becoming a UK Top 10 hit.

    Pop Life (Single) (Pre-Order) (On Sale)

    12 Maxi-Single Reissue


    Featuring Pop Life (Fresh Dance Mix) And Hello (12 Extended Remix Version)


    Pop Life is a 1985 song by Prince and The Revolution. It was the second US (and final UK) single from their 1985 album, Around the World in a Day, reaching number 7 in the US charts. The song starts with a faded-in synth line and quickly starts the main tune. The easy groove is achieved with a smooth bass guitar and piano embellishments. A drum machine provides handclaps to make the song danceable. Pop Life was recorded before Purple Rain was completed, indicating the new direction Prince wanted to take after the success of that album and film.


    The B-side of the track is Hello, written quickly as a response to those who criticized Prince's lack of participation in the We Are the World event. The angry lyrics lambaste the prying media and false friendships, and is driven by a pulsing beat. The extended version of the song ends with a spoken word by Prince, which contain some self-humor about his high-heeled shoes.

    I Wish U Heaven (Single) (Pre-Order) (On Sale)

    12 Maxi-Single Reissue


    Featuring I Wish U Heaven And Scarlet Pussy


    I Wish U Heaven is a joyful, spiritual song with few lyrics, which runs 2:43. The 12 single is a substantially extended three-part suite which runs over ten minutes.


    Part One of the mix starts with a stripped-down version of the Lovesexy album song, remixed with a dance beat. The original drum programming and rhythmic electric guitar riffs are deleted for much of the song.


    Part Two is a gospel rendition with new lyrics, continuing the spiritual theme. This part of the song was often sung in concert during the Lovesexy World Tour. The beginning of this section paraphrases lyrics from Housequake, from the previous album Sign O the Times. Prince also quotes the film Scarface with the lines Say hello to my little friend... and then introduces the Blue Angel, a new blue version of his custom White Cloud guitar featured in the film Purple Rain. Sheila E. is also given a call out, and her voice can be heard responding in this section.


    Part Three is based on an outtake called Take This Beat and deviates quite a bit from the original theme. This segment has Prince using his Jamie Starr persona to humorously tout the fact that he's funky, musically talented, and has plenty of beats (songs) that are so fine. The song ends with a looped repeat of the title. This version of the song became one of the highlights during the supporting tour in which Prince would usually order the house lights to be turned up, and instruct the crowd during a call and response segment.


    The B-side, Scarlet Pussy, is credited to Prince's alter ego, Camille. The song is very sexual, using metaphors of cats and dogs for sexual organs, a theme Prince previously used for the B-side La, La, La, He, He, Hee. Prince uses his sped-up Camille vocals, as well as a slowed-down vocal, similar to Bob George from The Black Album. The song features a saxophone solo from Eric Leeds. The decision to include such a raunchy song with the spiritual A-side was noteworthy. The edit of Scarlet Pussy was included on 1993's The Hits/The B-Sides.
