|The Very Best Of is an unreleased album by announced in the One Nite Alone... tourbook as an exclusive CD available to NPG Music Club members (along with Xenophobia, Madrid 2 Chicago and Last December). Although Xenophobia was revised and released as Xpectation, the other albums were left unreleased.
Nothing else is known about the album, although from the title it seems likely that the album was a compilation of tracks recorded while Prince used the name (from 1993 to 2000), although, given licensing, it seems likely this would be restricted to master tracks owned by Prince, rather than by Warner Bros. (eliminating tracks used on The Gold Experience and Chaos And Disorder). Alternatively, it may have included some re-recordings of tracks which had been originally released by Warner Bros., but all information about the album is speculative.
The title may have been in response to Warner Bros.' release of The Very Best Of Prince, released in late July 2001, seven months before this album was announced.
