One of the defining releases of the '80s – along with Michael Jackson's Thriller and Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A.Purple Rain (1984) elevated Prince from cult hero to superstar. The movie, loosely based on Prince's life story, was set in Minneapolis and his real-life hangout, the First Avenue & 7th Street Entry Club. Prince wrote the treatment and played the lead role of "The Kid."

The film also included electrifying performances by Prince and the Revolution – his racially and sexually integrated band, which included guitarist Wendy Melvoin, keyboardists Matt Fink and Lisa Coleman, bassist Brown Mark and drummer Bobby Z. The film grossed $80 million and the album, which won Prince an Oscar for Best Soundtrack, rained hits for a year: "When Doves Cry" (No. 1), "Let's Go Crazy" (No. 1), "Purple Rain" (No. 2), "I Would Die 4 U" (No. 8) and "Take Me With You" (N. 25).

12" vinyl reissue of 1984 maxi-single featuring a long version of Purple Rain's third hit single, the anthemic title track and Prince signature "Purple Rain," plus the overtly religious b-side "God."
