Overview

Contained within: 32 reasons a man could change his name from royalty to simply "The Artist" and have millions of people go along with it. In addition, there are four unreleased tracks and an entire CD of B Sides. And as if all that weren't enough, this box set programs the two CDs of hits like a good party tape rather than a museum retrospective. "If I was your Girlfriend" segues into "Kiss" on one disc; "1999" segues into "I Could Never Take the Place of your Man," on the other. Prince was clearly the most creative and active musical genius to emerge in the '80s, and these three CDs show off his range and brilliance. At the time of this 1993 release, the musical genius said that he would never make another record. As Gemini's are prone to do, Prince changed his mind on that account but little that he's done since matches up to this volume of music. Martin Johnson

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
While it isn't a truly comprehensive set, Prince's singles collection does contain most of his biggest hits. The two volumes are available separately or packaged together with a third disc of B-sides; apart from the glorious "Erotic City," the flip sides are only of interest to devoted fans.

Prince: The Hits/The B-Sides is a 3 CD set that has all of his greatest hits on CD1 and CD2 while CD3 has all the B-Sides hits. I was a bit disappointed that Batdance was not included in the discs, but 200 Balloons was on the B-Sides. His name is Prince and he is the Purple Reign.
