Having divorced himself from the corporate music industry structure, Prince Rogers Nelson remains one of contemporary pop music's most intriguing, elusive, and enigmatic figures. His seemingly endless repertoire continues to delight and confound audiences worldwide. Throughout his chameleon-like, 20-plus-year career, Prince has maintained his reputation as the consummate live performer. With this sprawling, three-disc live set—the artist's first live recording—Prince & the New Power Generation emerge spiritually reinvigorated and musically revitalized. Culled from the group's spring 2002 tour (and impromptu post-concert gigs), the stripped-down, jazz-tinged collection spotlights unreleased material ("Xenophobia," "Avalanche") and classic treasures ("Do Me Baby," "When You Were Mine"). Also included is a bonus disc, the acoustic-fueled One Nite Alone studio recording.—CR
