|His Majesty's Pop Life (subtitled "The Purple Mix Club") is the second promotional compilation album by Prince, available in late 1985 in Japan only, following the commercial release of Around The World In A Day and its associated singles. Only 500 copies of the promotional album were made.
The first disc includes versions of the tracks released as singles from Around The World In A Day (only America is included in its album version, while the others are remixes originally included on the 12" single vinyl releases).
The second disc includes versions of some of the single releases from the previous two albums, 1999 and Purple Rain, with the addition of the extended version of Erotic City, which had been released as the b-side of Let's Go Crazy.
As such, the double-disc album comprises of recordings from three Prince/Prince and the Revolution studio albums (although mostly in different versions) and and one single, all released originally between 1982 and 1985. Because of the separation of tracks from different eras over the two discs, the second disc is almost double the length of the first, and, as such, the first is played at 45 rpm (which was standard for singles), and the second at 33 ⅓ rpm (standard for LPs).
Of note is that both Prince and Sheila E. had created remixes of Pop Life, and the version included on the record is billed as Pop Life (Fresh Dance Mix) (the one created by Sheila E.) while it is the Extended Mix created by Prince instead. The title given for the remix of Raspberry Beret, Raspberry Beret (New Mix), has not been used elsewhere, although it is the same remix titled Raspberry Beret (Extended Remix) and Raspberry Beret (12" Version) elsewhere.
His Majesty's Pop Life was released officially on Record Store Day on April 13th 2019 by The Prince Estate.
