Super Deluxe Edition 10LP & DVD Box Set!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 163/500!

The Super Deluxe Edition brings fans all the audio material that Prince officially released in and around 1982, as well as 23 previously unissued studio tracks recorded between November 1981 and January 1983, and a complete live audio performance of the 1999 tour recorded at the late show (the second of two that day) in Detroit, MI on November 30, 1982.

In addition, the Super Deluxe set boasts a brand-new DVD containing another complete, previously unreleased concert from the 1999 tour, recorded in multi-cam live at the Houston Summit on December 29, 1982.

The Super Deluxe Edition set also features Prince's previously unseen handwritten lyrics for several songs from the era, including the hit "Little Red Corvette", plus images of the analog tape reels from the vault and rare photography from Prince's early '80s photographer, Allen Beaulieu. The Super Deluxe Edition is completed with brand-new liner notes by longtime Rolling Stone critic David Fricke, revered Guns N' Roses bassist and author (and Prince superfan) Duff McKagan, Minneapolis historian and radio host Andrea Swensson, and Prince scholar Duane Tudahl.

Fricke notes, "A landmark collection of vision, craft, and urgency - an unprecedented immersion in the frenetic momentum and private working world of Prince in 1981 and 1982, en route to the profound breakthrough of his fifth studio album, 1999."

I didn't want to do a double album, but I just kept writing... I always compare songwriting to a girl walking in the door. You don't know what she's going to look like, but all of a sudden she's there.
-Prince, November 1982
It's like an alternate universe for the album. As with the Purple Rain box set a couple years ago, this macro look at 1999 shows not just Prince's genius but the breadth of his brilliance at the time. The songs that made the cut on 1999 - which already lasts more than 70 minutes - were just a sliver of what he was doing at the time. What's left is for you to ponder all the musical thoughts and ideas he didn't record.
-Rolling Stone, 4.5/5 Stars
This material is mind-blowing for anybody who owns more than a Prince compilation CD. While the vault discs' quality is mostly front-packed, they can easily be narrowed down into a shorter, airtight highlights playlist. Further, the sound, as you'd expect from Bernie Grundman, has smooth top-end extension, dynamics, presence, and excellent tonal balance. Overall, this box set is a win all around, providing a fascinating look into Prince's workaholic creative peak.
-Malachi Lui, Analog Planet's Best Reissues of the Decade, March 2020
This box defines excellence in reissue sourcing, assembling, mastering, pressing, annotation and packaging. What Prince managed is truly 'mind-blowing' and though I didn't expect to, I listened to the entire set in one sitting and came away more impressed by his work and more depressed by his death.
-Michael Fremer, Analog Planet's Best Reissues of the Decade, March 2020
