Deluxe Expanded Edition of Purple Rain Includes 2015 Paisley Park Remaster from Original Tapes, Two CDs with Unheard Gems, Single Edits, and B-Sides, Plus Never-Seen 1985 Live DVD

Prince's Purple Rain remains one of history's most important, indisputable, and influential albums, but you've never heard it like this. NPG Records and Warner Bros. Records present the 2017 release of Prince's Academy Award and Grammy Award-winning, RIAA diamond-certified masterpiece in a new 3CD + DVD Deluxe Expanded Edition that defines definitive. A true collector's item and the ultimate vision of Purple Rain, it boasts the official 2015 Paisley Park Remaster of the original tapes overseen by Prince, a new "From The Vault & Previously Unreleased" disc with 11 unheard gems, a disc of Single Edits & B-Sides, and a never-seen on DVD of Prince and the Revolution captured at their peak in 1985.

The official 2015 Paisley Park Remaster of the original tapes from the soundtrack presents an unheard vision of the album overseen by Prince himself before his untimely 2016 passing. The From the Vault & Unreleased disc boasts eleven gems unearthed from the heart of Prince's storied vault. Beyond "Electric Intercourse," the tracklist features much sought-after rarities such as 1984's "Our Destiny / Roadhouse Garden," the 1983 instrumental "Father's Song" and more.

Six tracks that have never been released or distributed in the collector or bootleg community include: "Possessed" - the '83 Prince solo version, never heard before; "Electric Intercourse"- the studio version not known to exist before it was discovered at Paisley; "Father's Song" - a full, five plus minute version that prior to this fans could only find a minute and half snippet of in the movie; "We Can Fuck" - a track that has never circulated as the full, 10 minute version with these lyrics; and "Katrina's Paper Dolls" - a finished master of the song, which has previously only circulated as a demo. Additionally, all of the material is taken from the source and mastered by Bernie Grundman, the mastering engineer who worked on the original album.

In addition to Purple Rain and From the Vault & Unreleased, the Purple Rain Deluxe - Expanded Edition presents a third disc of Single Edits & B-Sides, as well as the concert DVD Prince And The Revolution Live at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY, March 30, 1985. With audio and video restored from the original production master tape, it offers an exclusive vignette into the passion and power of Prince's legendary live performances during one of his most celebrated eras.
