    RIP dude.

    Such a huge part of the soundtrack of my life. Incredible live performer and very underrated guitarist. Extremely sad....

      And I still never got around to picking up a vinyl copy of purple rain... (although I did get the bluray of the film for $5).

        Much to admire about him- his great sense of funk, mixed with hard rock, soul sounds, but very individualistic, his very strong sense of who he was and devotion to his roots. And agreed, his guitar playing was thrilling. Very sad. He leaves a great legacy, including the fact that someone can really do it "their way" and achieve popular success without compromise.

          There are a ton of new eBay auctions for the Purple Rain soundtrack album original issue. RIP.

            I will be spinning all my Prince albums over the next week in chronological order. Respect and RIP Prince. Dearly missed and a Legend.

              Ditto, great collection, Shane! Is that coveted Black Album I see?

              HI Allen. Yes that is the coveted Black album. The one in between Sign of the Times and Lovesexy is the original Bootleg I picked up in 1988 on my honeymoon in London.
              The other Black album next to Batman is the actual Warners release when Prince was getting out of his Warners contract and releasing old material to count as albums. He apparently has many albums he has never released stored in the Vault.

                  I'm embarrassed. There's not one Prince album in my collection. Used to though at one time have Purple Rain.

                    Same here, but I have an excuse....started my current collection from zero back in 2010. I just bought the PR reissue to see how it sounds before springing for the original issue. Same for 1999

                      I have an excuse too!

                      When I moved in 2003 post-divorce, I got rid of all my albums, mostly rock, that my old kitties had used as a scratching post.

                          Highly recommend Sign Of The Times concert DVD. Great version of Forever in My Life and others. Huge loss.
