Not all of Prince’s best songs are included with his The Hits collection. Many great songs didn’t make the cut.
This week the music world lost Prince, a musical genius and icon. Prince will not only be remembered as a Grammy and Academy Award-Winning singer-songwriter. He was one of the most unique, talented and influential artists of any generation. Leaving us the classic songs, “Purple Rain”, “1999”, “When Doves Cry” and “Little Red Corvette” just to name a few.
Prince’s biggest hits can be found on his 1993 3-Disc CD release The Hits/The B-Sides, released separately under the titles The Hits 1 and The Hits 2, featuring 36 chart toppers and 20 B-side tracks.
