It's not quite so simple. Even Prince's most chaste material, like the finger-wagging "Pop Life," has a certain limpid eroticism. "Soft and Wet" and the power-poppy "When You Were Mine," while nowhere near as blatant as some of The Purple One's other tracks, still raise an eyebrow. What's most interesting is the way the best songs from uneven albums like GRAFFITI BRIDGE and otherwise obscure tracks like the jazzy "Seven" assume a new luster in the company of classics like "When Doves Cry." THE HITS ONE contains the previously unreleased "Pink Cashmere" and a live version of "Nothing Compares 2 U." This disc and its companion volume are also available as a box set with an essential bonus third disc of b-sides.

Not the best CD of this set

"Prince - The Hits 1" is a single disc release of what was a 3-disc set called "The Hits, The B-Sides." This 18 track collection contains a modest sample of Princes popular hits during the 1980's. The biggest hits on this disc include "When Doves Cry, Let's Go Crazy, 1999, and Diamonds and Pearls." This disc also includes a live recording of his cover of Sinead O'Conners "Nothing Compares 2 U" which he wrote.

Overall the layout of the disc is clean but doesn't go in cronological order of release. When a artist puts live recordings on a greatest hits collections, it has to be worth remebering (i.e. Bob Seger's "Turn The Page" as example.) Princes recording of "Nothing Compares 2 U" is OK but is not a track I would play over and over.

The rest of the layout is average and is a good buy for the casual Prince fan.

STILL PRINCE - OLDIE AND VERY GOOD

If you like Prince, you will like this CD. I bought it because of the tracks Pop Life, 1999, and Let's Go Crazy, but there are a few other tracks that I listen to as well, including "When Your Were Mine," a song that I first heard in the ski film "Hot Dog, the movie."

Again, if you like Prince, you will like this CD.
