One Nite Alone... Tour Up All Nite With Prince - The One Nite Alone Collection (Collection)
One Nite Alone... The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over is the second live album by Prince, although it is available for purchase only as part of a 3CD box-set also including his first live album One Nite Alone... Live! (both credited to Prince and the New Power Generation; the first albums to receive that credit since 1992’s ). On 29 May 2020, The Prince Estate re-released the album with Sony’s Legacy Recordings on vinyl (individually) and in a 4CD+DVD box set called Up All Nite With Prince - The One Nite Alone Collection (The Rainbow Children and One Nite Alone... and One Nite Alone... Live! were also re-released on vinyl individually on the same day).

The CD is the first official audio document of Prince’s legendary aftershow concerts (video of an aftershow had been released previously on The Sacrifice Of Victor VHS) and includes tracks from three different aftershows following shows on the One Nite Alone... Tour.

Six of the nine tracks are live versions of tracks originally included on Prince’s studio albums released between 1986 and 1994. The Everlasting Now (Vamp) is a short reprise of the track from 2001’s The Rainbow Children (a full version of which is included on the companion album One Nite Alone... Live!). We Do This and the medley of Just Friends (Sunny) / If You Want Me To Stay are previously-unreleased in any form by Prince, and both feature guest vocalists (George Clinton on We Do This, and Musiq Soulchild on Just Friends (Sunny) / If You Want Me To Stay).

The audio was recorded directly from the mix console of Prince’s long time sound engineer, Scottie Baldwin.
