Prince's Biggest Album of the '90s Back in Print!

Prince arrived on the scene in the late-70s, and it didn't take long for him to upend the music world with his startling music and arresting demeanor. He rewrote the rulebook, forging a synthesis of black funk and white rock that served as a blueprint for cutting-edge music in the '80s. He made dance music that rocked and rock music that had a bristling, funky backbone.

From the beginning, Prince and his music were androgynous, sly, sexy and provocative. His colorful image and revolutionary music made him a figure comparable in paradigm-shifting impact to Little Richard, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and George Clinton.

In the early-90s, Prince assembled the backing band, the New Power Generation. They debuted on Diamonds and Pearls (1991), Prince's most accessible and hit-filled album since Purple Rain. Everything about it was elaborately conceived, including the holographic cover. The album returned Prince to radio with a string of funky, upbeat hits: "Gett Off" (No. 21), "Cream" (No. 1), "Diamonds and Pearls" (No. 3) and "Money Don't Matter 2 Night" (No. 23). It would turn out to be Prince's biggest album of the decade.
