Prince - The Hits / The B-Sides (3CD) (1993)

3CDs | Genre: Funk, Fusion, Jazz, Pop | Release: 1993 | MP3 320 kbps | 526 MB

The Hits/The B-Sides is the first greatest hits compilation album by Prince, released in 1993. It is a comprehensive 3-disc set, with a great many of his hit singles and fan favorites. Four new tracks "Pink Cashmere," "Peach," "Pope,"and "Power Fantastic" are also included.

Disc one and two were released separately, under the titles The Hits 1 and The Hits 2 respectively, but the B-Sides disc could only be obtained by purchasing the full set. Most of the songs (A-sides and B-sides) on The Hits/The B-Sides are represented in their single (edited) form, but this was necessary due to time constraints, and the nature of a greatest-hits collection. Exceptions to this were "Alphabet St.," "Little Red Corvette,"

and "Purple Rain." This was also the first time the single version of "Kiss" was available on CD. The third disc of B-sides also featured the 7" edits, with the exceptions of "200 Balloons," "17 Days," "Gotta Stop (Messin' About)," "Horny Toad," "Feel U Up," "I Love U In Me," "God," and "How Come You Don't Call Me Anymore?," which were all original full-length recordings from the original singles.

Among the previously unreleased material was the rare, version of "4 the Tears In Your Eyes," only previously released in a 1985 TV broadcast for the Aid concerts. Also included was a version of "Nothing Compares 2 U," recorded January 27, 1992 at Paisley Park with the New Power Generation. The other four new tracks were outtakes. The oldest track was "Power Fantastic," a moody ballad once considered for the Dream Factory project of 1986. Another ballad, "Pink Cashmere," was broadcast before some of the Lovesexy Tours, dating it back to 1988. "Peach" and "Pope" were more recent, and both were played during some 1993 after shows. "Pope" was actually in the short-d musical ballet, Glam Slam Ulysses, which also spawned several songs later released on Come and The Gold Experience. jams of "Peach" often extended into the title track for Chaos and Disorder.
