Back in March Warner Bros. Records were due to bring out a five-disc Original Album Series collection featuring Prince albums. This was to contain 1999, Purple Rain, Parade, Lovesexy and Diamonds and Pearls and should have been released on 26 March to at the same time as the Madonna Original Album Series box set.
Well something happened, and the box set was hastily withdrawn. Rumours suggested that Prince put the kibosh the on best-laid plans of Warner Bros.
Whatever the issue, we don’t want the unreleased status of this box to get in the way of giving you an exclusive look at the set, and so below is a photo gallery for your enjoyment.
It is of course a ‘budget’ release, so all in all pretty unremarkable. Simple card sleeves, unremastered audio, familiar discs used on previous releases. It should have been available for less than £10 but now we will have to wait and see if differences get resolved and this set sees a release later this year.
