The Max is a video featuring Prince and The NPG, presumably shot at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, MN, USA, likely in late 1992. The video also contains footage of a Diamonds And Pearls Tour show (presumably the same one in London footage for Live 4 Love was also filmed, and of a show on the Act I Tour (presumably at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta (mid March 1993), the outside of which can be seen in the video). Furthermore there are shots from the autograph signing session in Turtle’s Rhythm and Views in Atlanta March 1993 and him and the band arriving at club Tramp (on Jermyn Street) in London from June 1992.

Interestingly the video as it was released on YouTube and iTunes in 2017 is a previously unreleased version than runs longer compared to how it was featured on the 3 Chains O’ Gold home video.
