Did You Know?

From our newest additions:


  • ... that graphic designer Jay Vigon adapted the "Prince Purple Rain" logotype that was originally commissionned by Warner Bros for the movie for the Purple Rain album cover ?


  • ... that Wal-Mart refused to carry Lovesexy album in their 1,100 stores across the USA because of Prince's "provocative pose" on the cover that they thought was "too hot to handle"?


  • ... that Prince borrowed a keyboard from Pierre Lewis (of The Lewis Connection) and used it to record Soft And Wet?


  • ... that Chris Moon has described Aces as experimental in nature, lasting around 7 minutes long, with Mediterranean and Indian sections?


  • ...that Warner Bros. Records claimed first-day sales of 1.3 million copies for Purple Rain album, a fact backed-up by retailers meeting out of the norm demands, and getting out of stock within 3 days after the album release?



  • ...that when 1999 single was re-released in 1983, more than 150 Pop Radio Stations in the USA were reporting playing the record, compared to around 50 when the single was first released in fall 1982?


  • ...that at time 1999 album went platinum, it was the third double-pocket album released in the 80's decade to top the million sales mark, following Bruce Springsteen's The River and Dan Fogelberg's The Innocent Age?


  • ...that Granada television (UK) and RAI Network (Italy) negociated a $2 million deal for the live transmission of Lovesexy Tour's final European date in Dortmund, Westfallenhalle on 9 September, 1988?
