Engineers include: Susan Rogers, Prince, David Leonard. Compilation producer: Gregg Geller. Includes liner notes by Alan Leeds. THE HITS 1 includes two previously unreleased tracks, extensive liner notes, track annotations, recording information and photographs by Herb Ritts. Upon their release in 1993, the shorthand descriptors were that THE HITS ONE contained the "clean" songs while THE HITS TWO had all the "dirty" stuff. It's not quite so simple. Even Prince's most chaste material, like the finger-wagging "Pop Life," has a certain limpid eroticism. "Soft and Wet" and the power-poppy "When You Were Mine," while nowhere near as blatant as some of The Purple One's other tracks, still raise an eyebrow. What's most interesting is the way the best songs from uneven albums like GRAFFITI BRIDGE and otherwise obscure tracks like the jazzy "Seven" assume a new luster in the company of classics like "When Doves Cry." THE HITS ONE contains the previously unreleased "Pink Cashmere" and a live version of "Nothing Compares 2 U." This disc and its companion volume are also available as a box set with an essential bonus third disc of b-sides

Diamonds and pearls by Prince( Recording )

40 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Artist Formerly Known As Prince releases albums a bit like Stephen King writes books; with mind-boggling speed and an equal measure of royal success and passionate failure. On the groove- savvy DIAMONDS AND PEARLS, the diminutive one made an impressive rebound after the less-than-stellar GRAFFITI BRIDGE, with his most consistent and vibrant album since 1987's brilliant SIGN O' THE TIMES. Apparently aware of the powerful influence of groups like NWA, Public Enemy and Tribe Called Quest, Prince tried his hand at the harder genre, unleashing vocalist Tonio M. for cocky raps on songs like "Daddy Pop" and "Willing and Able." As always, Prince indulges happily in his erotic wanderings, with the guttural grooves and propositions of "Cream" and "Gett Off" leaving little to the imagination. However, it is the laid-back groove of the insightful and simply sung "Money Don't Matter" which is the quiet highlight of DIAMONDS AND PEARLS. A thoughtful reflection on disillusionment in love, business and politics, "Money Don't Matter" is perhaps Prince's most overlooked four-minute masterpiece
