Madhouse Greatest Hits is an unreleased studio compilation album by Madhouse mentioned on the website in 1999 (the exact title is unconfirmed so Prince's chosen wording is used as the assumed title). During a "? of the week" in 1999, a fan (using the name Czer1) asked if there were any plans to release the album 24, and/or re-release/re-record 8 and 16, to which Prince replied:

"We r planning a Madhouse greatest hits... coming soon. Beware of the bootleg cover band (1) who stole r name. "

Nothing else is known about the planned album, and any tracklist is speculative, but since Prince used the term "greatest hits" it seems likely that Six, Ten and Thirteen would be included, as these were the only tracks to be released as singles by Madhouse.

Beyond that, it is possible that some of the tracks played regularly live (including Four) might have been included, as well as the 1993 track 17 (which was released on the 1994 compilation album 1-800 New Funk) and perhaps the 1995-1996 tracks 17 and 18 (re-recordings of Kamasutra/Overture # 8 and Promise/Broken respectively), edits of which were included on the unreleased Man'O'War (Remix) NPG Records Sampler in 2000, in the same timeframe as the initial post about the compilation.

It is likely, however, that the compilation was never fully compiled, and remained more of an idea than a fully executed project.

(1) It is not clear to which band Prince was referring.
