Most Prince fans already have this stuff elsewhere, but I must say, teasing us with only ONE track from THE FAMILY and ONE track from VANITY 6 is just that...a tease! I don't understand why Warner Bros. is unwilling to reissue both the full-length THE FAMILY and VANITY 6 self-titled LPs on CD?! If you look on ebay, these CDs routinely go for over $100 EACH on ebay! Hello? There is a HUGE Prince fanbase out there who would snap of these full-length CDs, long overdue - first THE FAMILY: tracks like the ORIGINAL "NOTHING COMPARES 2 U" "RIVER RUN DRY" adn others are all sublime. As for VANITY 6, it's a nearly perfect and too short LP - BITE THE BEAT, MAKE-UP, NASTY GIRL, IF A GIRL ANSWERS, etc. were all ground-breakers back in the day - and inadvertedly influenced a new wave of 80s electro-funk today - FELIX DA HOUSECAt, do you feel me?! While you're at it, why not reissue VANITY's solo MOTOWN LP "WILD ANIMAL" on CD? So much cr*p is released on CD nowadays, but not these gems? Sad.

This soundtrack is basically a "Sign o' The Times"-era Prince
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.

This Soundtrack compiles many Prince songs old and new and also includes tracks by other members of the Prince "family". This Soundtrack includes two hard to find tracks, one by Vanity and the other by The Family. Up until now these tracks have never been released in CD format. It's nice to hear them again. This soundtrack also includes new Prince songs as well. One track entitled "She Spoke 2 Me" is also available in long form on the Prince Archive CD entitled "The Vault:Old Friends For Sale" which brings out Prince's jazzy side. If you are a fan of Prince's music as much as I am then you'll definitely enjoy this CD. The movie was rather humorous as well.

Up to 2 weeks before the passing of Prince, I had been looking for his group "The Family" song "screams of passion". Everytime I found it, it was on Vinyl for $25 or more. I happened across this, along with some of my other favorites from him, and it was cheaper. This is a great sample of his music not found on his Greatest Hits CD. Only has one song I am not fond of on here, but for the price...you cannot beat it.

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.

Not the big hits, but by no means are the songs misses either. The soundtrack to the forgettable Girl 6 (which I might have slept trough) is full of gorgeous ballads and uptempo R&B faire. It is hard to mention all of the bright spots because even the weaker songs like "Girl 6" and "Count The Days" still have something slightly redeeming. The tracks aren't Prince only, but him with related groups like The Family and Vanity 6, whose great hard-to-find sex fest "Nasty Girl" is steamy and controversial, but Apollonia 6's "Sex Shooter" is a more demure Prince produced track and is bite size in comparison. The hot Prince tracks are "Spoke To Me", which forays into a jazz Burt Bachrach sound. Also awesome tracks are "Hot Thing" (a modern sounding rock James Brown type tune) , "Don't Talk 2 Strangers" (hear a sweet sounding rendition of it on Chaka Khan's "Come To My House") and of course the hot funk of "Erotic City".
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.

If you're a Prince fan, this a must-have in your collection. I bought it mainly for the cut "Screams of Passion" by the Prince produced group, The Family, whose music is out of print like many of the Prince produced groups from the 80's and 90's.

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.
