sampler with a little throwaway new material added but it must be
given props for the stunning "She Spoke 2 Me",a funky blues/rock
number that ranks with "the artists" best mid 90's work.And you
can't get the Family's excellent 1985 hit "The Screams Of Passion" or 1982's "Nasty Girl" by the Vanity 6 anywhere else right no (a pity because I have both artists full lengh LP's on
vinyl and both deserve emmediate reissue!).But aside from those
three tracks whitch EARN this set three of it's stars the rest
of the albeit stunning material can be found on Prince albums
worth hearing in their entirety.
By the way the group "The Family" was a one time thing. It had 2 guys from the Time and Wendy's twin sister is the lead singer. St. Paul the main singer continues on to this day singing his song he wrote (not the same without the woman singing). Awesome piece to add to your collection. Now if I can just get my hands on Madhouse (Prince and Eric Leeds Jazz fusion albums) that only had 2 album releases, also on Vinyl... It will help fulfill my Prince collection.
The kind of disappointing thing about the soundtrack is that it has obviously lifted tracks from the "Hits" sets. I'm surprised it didn't take the live "Nothing Compares 2 U". It is an awesome mixed bag of Prince goodies, but not his essentials. Not to mention that some tracks sound below him. Still a fun and even surprisingly emotional set.

The terrific thing about Prince is that he experiments and with such a wealth of material, thousands of songs written, he could easily rest on his laurels and simply push out a hundred song CD set and flood the market. Instead in collaboration with Spike Lee Prince delvbes into his vault for tunes and at the same time creates music to suit the film.
Is his work that amorphous, pliable, flexible?
Yes and no.
Arguably the better a movie is has something to do with the lining up of the soundtrack as a bridge from scene to scene. Usually sound is laid last in a film, synching up with the editing. Yet Spike Lee knew that Prince's music was necessary to this film.
So then we have to examine, one, why Prince and two, what music was used. The film deals with sex, sexuality, forms of mind sex and phone sex and ultimately the loss of self to an industry. The overt and subversive nature of sexuality within Prince's music makes it very compatible to the film. Secondly, the music chosen is some of his most sexual and at the same time deeply spiritual. What makes the music so strong to the films identity is that it does tell a story unto itself about evolution and exploration of self/sexuality.
Which ultimately the film is about. Circles within circles.
My personal favorite song is Girl 6, the last track, with a wicked sampling of Theresa Randle's dialogue from the film. Screams of Passion is also a great song.Read more ›
