Purple Medley

Warner Bros. Records

Prince: 1958–1993. May He Rest In Peace.

Purple Medley is a remix montage of Prince‘s popular hits, re-recorded at Paisley Park Studios in 1994 and available as two versions, full and edit. The edit is mixed into this sequence: Batdance, When Doves Cry, Kiss, Erotic City, Darling Nikki, 1999, Baby I’m A Star, Diamonds and Pearls, Purple Rain and Let’s Go Crazy. Which in the full 11 minute version then continues with Sexy Dancer, Let’s Work, Irresistible Bitch, Sexy M.F., I Wanna Be Your Lover, Alphabet St., Thieves in the Temple, 777-9311, A Love Bizarre, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Raspberry Beret, Little Red Corvette, Cream and closes with Peach.

The edited version was played at the start of the concerts during The Ultimate Live Experience tour, when Prince was under the name of The Artist Formally Known As Prince ( Prince love symbol). Purple Medley was commercially available as an EP during the Ultimate Live Experience concert run, as a ‘Tour Souvenir’ released by Warner Brothers. That tour did not visit the US and therefore the release performed poorly there, reaching only position 84 in the Billboard charts – faring better in the UK where shows were played, charting there at number 33.

The third track on the EP is a remix medley produced by Prince’s DJ, Kirk Johnson. Although this track is called Kirky J’s B-Side Remix, only one of those songs featured (Shockadelica) was actually originally a B-side. Its tracks are mixed in this order: Pop Life, Housequake, When Doves Cry, Shockadelica, Head and The Continental.
