Did You Know?

From our newest additions:

  • ... that Purple Rain Home Video remained 12 consecutive weeks at position 1 in Billboard Top Videocassette sales chart?



  • ... 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?
