His Majesty’s Pop Life: The Purple Mix Club

Warner Bros. Records

Paisley Park is in your heart.

His Majesty’s Pop Life was originally released under Warner’s Pioneer imprint in 1985, as a very limited run of 500 promotional copies available only to DJs in Japan, to support the then newly released Around The World In A Day album. The compilation was reissued and given a worldwide release on 13 April 2019 by The Prince Estate and titled His Majesty’s Pop Life: The Purple Mix Club to mark the annual Record Store Day, limited to 14,000 copies, distributed by Warner Brothers. That day also saw the commercial release of another sought after promo, a tape that dated from 1995 titled The Versace Experience (Prelude 2 Gold), distributed by Sony Legacy. It peaked in the US number 184, in the Billboard charts.

His Majesty’s Pop Life: The Purple Mix Club received a wider commercial release on 8 July 2020, but again only in the Japanese market, but on CD as well as vinyl.

The compilation comprises of the 12-inch versions of tracks previously available as B-sides to the singles of the three original albums from which these extended versions supported. Those albums are 1999, Purple Rain and Around The World In A Day. The vinyl version comprises of two disks, with tracks 1-4 playing at 45RPM as disk 1, and tracks 6-11 at 33RPM comprising disk 2.
