Purple Medley

Warner Bros. Records

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

Purple Medley is a remix track and montage of Prince‘s popular hits, 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.

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 (track #1) 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 also commercially available in record shops during the run, as a ‘Tour Souvenir’, released by Warner Brothers. That tour did not visit the US and therefore the song performed poorly there, reaching only position 84 in the Billboard charts – faring better in the UK where the tour was performed, it charted there at number 33.

The third track on the single is a remix medley by Prince’s DJ, Kirk Johnson. Although this track is called Kirky J’s B-Side Remix, only one of those songs featured was actually a B-side1. Those songs are mixed in this order: Pop Life, Housequake, When Doves Cry, Shockadelica1, Head and The Continental.
