PRINCE: Diamonds And Pearls (Super Deluxe Edition - 7 CD + BLU-RAY) - October 25, 2023




Details

Diamonds And Pearls is the thirteenth studio album by Prince, and was the first with his new backing band, The New Power Generation. Featuring six massive international singles, including the hits “Gett Off”, “Cream”, and the iconic title track, the album was a worldwide smash reaching multi-platinum status in the USA and the UK, where it remains his best-selling album.

Diamonds And Pearls was unveiled to the world on October 1, 1991, and it instantly had a huge commercial and cultural impact, becoming the biggest selling non-soundtrack album of Prince’s career. Over the past three decades, the reasons for its enormous success have been discussed extensively. Not least of these was Prince’s decision to finally engage with major television exposure and an extensive tour of Europe, Japan and his first trip to Australia. The album also offered a diverse collection of sounds that could appeal to a wide variety of listeners. Diamonds And Pearls had something for everyone.
  • CD1 Diamonds And Pearls - Remastered for the very first time
  • CD2: 15x newly Remastered Singles Mixes & Edits
  • CD3-5: 33x previously unreleased studio recordings from Prince's Vault

Man I loved that album back in the day. But maybe not that much.

I would be interested in the cd set if the price was similar to the 1999 super deluxe that came out a few years ago. This is roughly twice that amount.

I will get it though I never held that band in the same regard as the Revolution or the stuff he did in the 80's.

I would like the Blu-ray but don't want to buy a deluxe set just for that.

Finally unboxed and started listening. Thankful that each CD has a cardboard sleeve and the Blu-ray has that plus a clear protector. So all discs are mint condition, unlike one of my Nirvana In Utero CD's that was scratched (but it did play flawlessly) which are not protected like other box sets I have gotten.

I listened to the CD with remixes and rarities.

Violet the Organ Grinder is now my new favorite song.


Maybe it was a rough draft that led to "Get Off" but it is bangin and should have been released as a single
