Up All Nite With Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection

Sony Legacy

Proof of his astounding skill as a performer

Up All Nite With Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection is a repackaged release by Sony Legacy in 2020, combining four separate releases originating between 2002 to 2003 under NPG Records. The set brings into print again Prince’s rare original studio piano and voice album One Nite Alone… of which later provided the name for his 2002 world tour, One Nite Alone.

Fans had long appealed to Prince to release soundboard quality audios of his live shows, and in 2002, having been previously reluctant to do so, Prince finally obliged in kind with the release of the double album One Nite Alone… Live! comprising songs recorded in nine shows from that tour. Originally available in 2002 under NPG Records, as a rectangle piano key covered boxset, it contained also a third, companion, CD named The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over! featuring nine songs from three aftershows performed during that same tour.

On 17 April 2020, these three albums were reissued and repackaged as a 5-disk boxset by Sony Legacy. The fifth disk of the set is the reissued DVD, Prince Live At The Aladdin Las Vegas, which captured on film the final night of the tour, was likewise previously and separately available, in 2003. Up All Nite With Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection unites for the first time the four related releases from 2002/03. See original listings for reviews and further details.

Up All Nite With Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection – review

Sony Legacy reissues series continues abound with Up All Nite With Prince, a fantastically repackaged boxset housing 5 disks celebrating Prince’s first live album One Nite Alone… Live! A remarkable album when it first came out in 2002, it captures the essence of his spellbinding One Nite Alone Tour of that year. Argued by the fans who attended its shows (and I was one of them) – complete with front row soundchecks, stripped down intimacy, jazz fused genius, homage to musicianship, on stage bean bags on which select fans would loll and zone out through bundles of burning incense wafting across the stage – this was both his best ever tour and backing band. I don’t feel Prince was happier and more free in his artistic expression than during this period. It was the tour he dared to shun playing anything from Purple Rain, partly because of his fallout with Warner but free of all constraint, this was his tour done his way. So much so, he decided to break his own convention and release it on CD. Reissued now in 2020, Legacy’s faithful reproduction shines through, with the original’s accompanying booklet also reissued, with artwork patched up and tweaked by Sam Jennings who also worked on the original. The set is complete with classy spot UV cover, although the 2002 original will set you back £100 should you find one on eBay. And kudos to Sony for lavishing so much loving respect to Prince’s most undervalued era, make the Legacy reissues so worth collecting even for fans who already own the originals, and I for one am cool to buy them all. The Legacy series is also a lifeline, to new fans to get this hard to obtain music. Since departing Warner Brothers, Prince would not follow a traditional release schedule ever again. Leaving dedicated fans to climb mountains and chase rainbows to get their hands on his post Warner new output. I sometimes felt Prince showed contempt for his music, not giving the full releases it deserved – he was a major artist but operating on a grass roots business model. But let’s remember all this was at a time the internet was still in its infancy, Prince was trailblazing but, as someone who lived through it all, was often frustrating. Up All Nite With Prince contains Live At the Aladdin, although released in 2003 was the final DVD from Prince in his lifetime, but that too is repackaged into this fantastic set. Looking back at it all almost twenty years later, I believed then and stand by that now, the highlight of the set is The Aftershow, now disk #4 in this set. Prince fans are mostly at an age that see music streaming/renting is a bastardisation to music ownership. So to have a major label still ‘doing the work’ and offer these more unfamiliar corners in Prince’s catalogue as beautifully repackaged releases, is proof even in this day and age physical always trumps digital. Though in 2021 expect Sony’s focus to shift to Prince’s Warner era when the rights to release music pre 1993 pass to them, when the series get really interesting.
