Sony Legacy continues their splendid reissue series in 2020 with One Nite Alone… and The Rainbow Children.

Under exclusive license with The Prince Estate, throughout 2019 Sony’s Legacy Recordings released three waves of reissues of the music catalogue Prince recorded under the NPG Records label, following his departure from Warner Brothers in the mid-1990s. Thankfully 2020 looks as equally exciting at the announcement of Sony Legacy’s first release of the year, focusing on star’s early 2000 material – reissuing and gloriously repackaging The Rainbow Children and One Nite Alone…

The reissues bring new love again to the hard to find releases of his first live recordings: One Nite Alone… Live! and The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over! They are, therefore, a milestone in Prince’s catalogue and are set for rerelease on 17 April 2020* as a 5-disk boxset titled Up All Nite With Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection. Furthermore, this set will be joined with a standalone release of 2002s concept album, the incredible The Rainbow Children.

Up All Nite With Prince: The One Nite Alone Collection slipcase set will comprise One Nite Alone… as disk 1 – the original piano and voice CD Prince released in 2002 to the subscribers of his fanclub, during the height of the NPG Music Club. His first ever live release, the two-part One Nite Alone… Live! occupies disks 2 and 3, and its original companion CD The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over! (and cherry of the set) is disk 4. Following in the footsteps of last year’s wonderfully packaged triple-disk set Ultimate Rave, Up All Nite With Prince will likewise reissue a DVD – Prince Live At The Aladdin Las Vegas, his final ever DVD release and recording of the last night of his stuff of legend One Nite Alone… Tour, reissued in the set as disk 5. The set will also contain a reprint of the original 48-page accompanying booklet.

Additionally, Prince’s trailblazing jazz-infused album of 2001 The Rainbow Children will be available as a separate release. Both will be out from 17 April* and available on CD and vinyl.

UPDATE

* Release dates postponed to 29 May 2020.
