Prince - The Hits/The B-Sides (3-disc set)

**sigh**. . . shit.

Another icon lost . . . He had so much left in the tank - creatively, personally and professionally. I know that time is finite for us all . . . but this one smarts.

Nothing much else left to say . . .  Here's something by someone well-known, who succinctly expressed the overall feeling of Prince's passing today a lot better than I ever could:

All I can do in tribute to this great artist is to provide his music to you - so here you are: Prince's The Hits/The B-Sides three-disc compilation, released by Paisley Park Records and Warner Brothers Records on September 10th, 1993. I bought mine at the old Echo Records in Christchurch shortly after it came out - just looked at it; it still has the price tag on it all these years later: NZ$87.95. Worth every penny I spent on it, and then some.

My favorite song off of this set is "Erotic City" - this song was the JAM during the summer of '84:

Anyway, have a listen to this set tonight, enjoy, and remember this gifted, innovative and prolific artist as he transitions into the realm of legend. Rest well, Prince.

(Man, but I'm tired of writing these eulogy posts . . .)
