One Nite Alone... Live!

NPG Records

Prince had always been opposed to releaing a live album, since all his concerts are very different, that releassing one live album could therefore not offer the quintessential show. However, bending to fans demands in 2002 he released One Nite Alone... Live! as his first ever live album, all of which is gleaned from various shows of the One Nite Alone... Tour.

One Nite Alone... Live! was released as Prince & the New Power Generation and along with a separately cased CD It Ain't Over! as well as a presentational picture booklet commemmorating the tour. Given to fanclub members of the npgmusicclub.com from 24 November 2002, the set received a wider commercial release on 17 December 2002.

Album Review

Rated 4 out of 5

Always opposed to releasing a live album, Prince has finally given all what we've been longing for since 1978, an officially released live album. Prince once said if ever released a live album it would have to be of the definitive show, being that his shows are always so varied, we all knew there was no such thing as the 'definitive show'. But then came along the One Nite Alone Tour, in my view, his definitive tour. Worried that he was going to tour the piano album of the same name, thankfully the One Nite Alone Tour turned out to be the full-on rock fest we all dreamed of. One Nite Alone... Live! captures the music which swept us all away in 2002 in Prince's new musical peak. A year since the curtain fell at the last show of the tour this double-disk set keeps that dream alive for those who went to what was really a demonstration in perfection and and experience that continues to blow you away even years later. My only gripe about the content of the double album is that they do not capture the shows edge, and may make the concerts seem flatter than the guitar-fest the tour became. Presented in a wonderful box to make the collectors gush, which also contains a bonus CD of a collection of recordings from the after shows taken from the US leg, named after the chant used throughout the tour It Ain't Over!. This bonus disk contains the real jam-laden funk of the fabled after shows during the tour that adds the real fire to the set and will quite justly take price of place over your whole Prince collection.

One Nite Alone... Live!
