Symbolic Beginning is the a collection of studio recordings by 94 East, the band name given to a number of tracks recorded by Pepé Willie and Prince with occosional other musicians (it is misleading to consider it an "album", as the tracks have been rearranged many times for reissues under different titles).

The collection contained one track which was previously-unreleased, If We Don't, while the other 16 tracks had been included on Minneapolis Genius - Featuring Prince in 1992 (and six of them on Minneapolis Genius in 1986).

This collection was re-released as The Legends Collection in 1999 with no changes to the tracklist.

The album was released without much promotion, and did not chart.
