For the first time Prince and the N.P.G.'s Diamond and Pearls Video Collection is available on DVD. The collection was a treasured favorite when it was available on VHS.

First things first, I must address the picture and sound quality. It doesn't appear that the set was re-mastered--the picture or the sound. Despite this, it looks and sounds good--just not what you would expect from a DVD. Sound and picture wise it's not much different than my VHS version.

If it's been awhile since you have seen this collection let me refresh your memory. It includes the music videos from Prince's album Diamond and Pearls album. Videos included are "Gett Off," "Cream," "Diamonds and Pearls," "Call The Law," "Willing and Able," "Insatiable," "Strollin'," and "Money Don't Matter 2 Night."

Live concert footage featured on the set includes "Thunder," "Dr. Feelgood," "Jughead," and "Live 4 Love."

The running time of the set is 58 minutes. It's pretty much the same as the VHS version--except on DVD. There is nothing new, but its great that Prince fans can finally own this set on the most current format available.

Ummm, am I missing something? If my memory serves me correctly, the album "Diamonds and Pearls" came out in 1991, so why is the accompanying video released for the first time in 2006? No matter. Back in the'90s, it was easy to get lost in the myriad releases that Prince offered, not to mention the whole name-changing thing. Prince simply released too much material for anyone to keep track, especially casual fans, which is why this DVD is such a welcome surprise. Despite the passage of time, the material on "Diamonds and Pearls" has aged quite well - much better than the haircuts worn by his bandmembers. Few artists have been as obsessed with fashion as Prince, and the state-of-the-art `90s outfits worn here can be quite entertaining all by themselves.

Nothing, though, can distract from Prince. Without saying much, Prince once again provides plenty of evidence that he may well be the single most talented performer alive today. He sings with raw power and sly innuendo. He plays guitar incredibly well. He writes. He produces. He oversees every last nuance of his band's appearance and performance. And, he dances. My God, how he dances. "Diamonds ands Pearls" is worth seeing (even this much after the fact) because it provides a much-needed visual element to some of Prince's best songs. He is simply a wonder to behold, channeling the spirits of Sly Stone, James Brown, Little Richard and vintage-Michael Jackson with ease. "Gett Off" is so good that you laugh out loud in amazement. People overlook it, but "Cream" might well be the best pop song of the `90s. It is certainly one of the best-produced songs of that decade and the video here gives it new life.

What made "Diamonds and Pearls" different from a lot of Prince's previous work was in the latitude that he allowed his bandmembers.

I was 12 when this album first hit the stores. Too young to have it in my house, but my older sister had it and let me listen to it a few times. I remember that the videos for Gett Off, Cream and Diamonds & Pearls were EVERYWHERE that year and I couldn't have been happier. I would have purchased this collection for those three alone, but I'm happy to report that the style through out the entire production is of a piece. If you're even a little sentimental for this era of Prince's music (and music in general), and dig the amazing hairstyles (ha!), gett it!

Another hot release from Prince and the New Power Generation to include the smash singles "Gett Off," "Cream," "Diamonds and Pearls," "Insatiable," and "Money Don't Matter 2 Night." Also, witness concert footage, band interviews and live versions of "Thunder," "Daddy Pop," "Jughead" and "Live 4 Love," as well as extended versions of "Cream" and "Diamonds and Pearls." If your a Prince fan, get this VHS, its worth it!

Prince Rogers Nelson, a musical icon, has been putting out hits since 1978. But seldom have we gotten the combo of a top selling album with a video to go along with it. Including #1 singles Diamonds and Pearls, Money Don't Matter Tonight, Gett Off, as well as live music, it just doesn't get any better than this!

Format: DVD
It seems like no accident that this video anthology came out roughly around the same time as Michael Jackson - Dangerous: The Short Films. And interestingly enough the presentation follows a similar pattern: manipulating and being manipulated by the media (as told through a montage of TV news clippings) and Prince videos from this era being strung together with vingettes of Prince running from the press. Well happily I have to inform you that's where the cons of this DVD ends. Whereas I always had the impression MJ was,in his own mind being dead serious in his paranoia on his DVD if you watch this carefully there's a strong hint of swaggering self parody here. This presentation also follows a loose concept involving two ladies named Diamond and Pearl,who appear aside Prince on the Diamonds and Pearls album cover. Prince's wit and invisable humor is very much on display especially in one vignette before the "Cream" video involving a woman carrying on a conversat ion with a man that,"I don't like Sinatra;I like Prince"-or something to that effect. Prince makes it clear he's very self possessed when it comes to how his ego comes across and especially in the "Gett Off" video he has his mysterious,controlling pseudo gigalo routine down to a science. Not to say he's coming at it from the same standpoint as he did in Purple Rain; he's ego is not that of the same insecure "kid" with a pretention of cockiness but a very cocksure 30 something who knows what he wants and how to get it.Read more ›
