45RPM Single Pressed at Optimal in Germany: Audiophile Quality, Maximum Groove Space
Prince's breakthrough was 1999 (1982), a self-produced double album made at his home studio. He'd toned down, if not entirely tamed, the hardcore sexuality, and the longish, danceable tracks appealed to disco and New Wave fans alike. Whereas many saw divisions in the culture – in terms of everything from musical preferences to skin color – Prince forged a party-minded unity around the various audiences' shared interests in "dance, music, sex, romance." The album launched three major singles: "Little Red Corvette" (No. 6), "1999" (No. 12) and "Delirious" (No. 8). 12" vinyl reissue of 1983 maxi-single featuring the final single from 1999, the sexually charged fan favorite "Let's Pretend We're Married" plus the jilted lover b-side "Irresistible Bitch."
