Released as Prince And The New Power Generation and available only as the companion CD to the One Nite Alone… Live boxset. One Nite Alone… The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over consists of live recordings taken from three aftershows during the 2002 One Nite Alone… Tour.

The main two disk set this CD accompanies forms recording taken from the main show. It is Prince’s second only official recording of an aftershow since Warner Brothers VHS Sacrifice Of Victor was released in 1995. It Ain’t Over contains three non-Prince songs; a medley by Musiq Soulchild who made a guest appearance at the 10 April 2002 aftershow, who sung and also wrote Just Friends (Sunny); and covers Sly & The Family Stone’s 1973 song If You Want Me To Stay. George Clinton sings We Do This which was recorded during the same show.

The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over – review

It Ain’t Over is a refreshing album. Not because of the fact it is Prince’s second live album and released right on the back of One Nite Alone… Live, it is a series of recordings of his famous aftershows. Taken during those of the One Nite Alone… Tour the album is more successful capturing the atmosphere of the intimate shows than the double album recording of the main concerts. The club vibe is throughout and most notably with Alphabet St., converted into a jam as is Peach, but the moody Joy In Repetition is the real gem. The out of place inclusion of the Musiq Soulchild medley, however, should have been reconsidered in favour of others better suited here, however George Clinton’s We Do This maintains the familiar Prince spirit and aftershow groove. The smooth Dorothy Parker both oozing class and Las Vegas lounge lifts The Aftershow: It Ain’t Over slightly above its main companion album – confirming a formula that was later repeated with Indigo Nights.
