How can a movie with atrociously bad acting, a wafer thin script and haphazard direction be released as a Two Disc Special Edition DVD? Well, for all its flaws, and there are many, Purple Rain is a gloriously entertaining film and one of the films that personifies the "me" decade that was the 1980s. Ninety-eighty four was supposed to be the ominous year of Orwell and big brother, but instead, 1984 was ruled by the Purple Prince. In 1984, Prince managed to have the number one album, number one single and number one film at the same time, something that only the Beatles and Elvis Presley had accomplished before him.
Prince 4Ever will bring together 40 of PRINCE’s best-loved songs, including the hits “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Kiss,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Purple Rain,” “Raspberry Beret,” “Sign O’ The Times,” “Alphabet Street,” “Batdance,” and “Cream.” Prince 4Ever includes “Moonbeam Levels” – a previously unreleased song originally recorded in 1982 during the "1999" sessions and later considered for the never released "Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic" album. Prince 4Ever will also arrive with a 12-page booklet of never-before-seen photos by photographer Herb Ritts.
