    First of all, it’s great just to hear the original Purple Rain album in its entirety again. Of course I’ve heard all the songs individually many many times throughout the years but it’s good to hear it as it was supposed to be collected again. The second disc of unreleased cuts is also exceptional. In addition to a reworked version of Computer Blue, you can hear bits and pieces in some of the numbers that he used later in other songs. Fathers Song is the beautiful piano riff he used in the movie and it was co-written by his real father. There are 3 really funky tracks that I can’t name in this review but they showcase him at his Darling Nikki/Sexy M F best. If you are a Prince completist or someone looking to experience his greatness for the first time. This should be a must have for you.

    It's Prince. It's Purple Rain. It's classic rock/r&b greatness. They could have done a whole lot better with some of the added songs and done away with the edits of some others, but when you get to re-experience the Prince Purple Rain magic, you take that ride.This is an amazing cd with superior sound quality unlike anything else. The songs from the vault knocks this straight out of the park. My favorite is Computer Blue and the remaster of Purple Rain.

    Great package. It feels like he is still alive when we can hear music we have not heard before! Enjoyed the DVD, but remember that the concert was 30 years ago, so it is not the quality it would be today.Loved the B-sides the most. The unreleased tracks were just okay, some of which sound like they had been worked into his past live shows as interludes in medleys of songs.

    I bought this CD for my wife primarily because of the Purple Rain cut on it. She said that was the only thing on the album that she really liked, but I think if you're big on Prince it might be worth a listen.

    Disc one takes you down a trip to memory lane with the original soundtrack. Disc 2 is many unreleased gems as various versions of songs.
