Prince And The Revolution: Live was the second Prince and the Revolution home video to be released and its first live concert released on Home Video format.
The footage comes from a live broadcast¹ of a Purple Rain Tour concert in Syracuse, on 30 March 1985.
It was first released on 2 cassettes under the name of "Double Live" before being re-released as Prince And The Revolution: Live on one cassette and laserdisc.
The video contains songs that are the first musical contributions (released by Prince under his own name) by Eric Leeds who would become long-term musical collaborators (Eric Leeds had previously contributed to The Family side-project).
¹ Several countries around the world, amongst them Germany (on TV program Rockpalast), broadcast the concert live. France TV channel Antenne 2 broadcast the concert a few days later.
