A closer description of the 3 cd's:


Album notes:

    What do you do with fifteen years of hits; You release a 3-CD set of the 36 greatest hits and the 20 best B-sides. Prince has never done anything half-hearted.
    Following the mild success of his last few albums he releases this. A look back at a long career of hits upon hits, but also an opportunity to release a few "new" songs. The new songs on this set are "Nothing Compares To You", "Pink Cashmere", "Peach" and "Pope".
    To those who have never listened to Prince before the first two CD's gives an excellent introduction to the works of this "Skinny motherfucker with the hard voice". To the rest of us it is a great chance to get four new songs and a load of B-sides. Buy it.

Band notes:

    Giving band notes on this set would be a little to comprehensive, so I think I'll just not do it.

Chart notes:

    The 3-CD set did very well on the charts compared to the fact that it was 3 CD's. The set reached no.19 on the Pop-charts and no.6 on the R&B-charts.
    Two singles were released to accompany this set. They were "Pink Cashmere" and "Nothing Compares 2 U". None of them did well on the charts, "Pink Cashmere" reached no.50 on the Pop-chart and no.14 on the R&B-chart. "Nothing Compares 2 U" reached no.62 on the R&B-chart and didn't make it to the Pop-chart; It deserved much more actually, I think this duet with Rosie Gaines is infinitely better than the version Sinead O'Connor had a no.1 hit with.
