Purple Rain Gets Remastered

Billboard's 'Album of the Week' is the remastered deluxe edition of Purple Rain by Prince and The Revolution.

I remember critics swooping in on Purple Rain like evil vultures ready to rip the film apart. However, this movie has always been a favorite of mine and I will still stop to watch it when I come across it, or jam to the sounds of "When Doves Cry," "Darling Nikki," "The Beautiful Ones," and of course, "Purple Rain" whenever they come on.

To be honest, the 1984 album should have been remastered or released as a deluxe edition years ago, but I'm glad it's out now. The Purple Rain Remastered Deluxe Editions include 35 songs and 3 compact discs of nostalgic Prince tunes.

The list of CDs and the associated list of tracks are enough to make a Prince fan vibrate with pure purple pleasure. 💜
