NPG Music Club

2001/6

NPG Music Club (NPGMC) was Prince‘s official website and members’ download store/”fan club” between 14 February 2001 and 4 July 2006, taking over its previous incarnation npgonelineltd.com. The website launched with its own software player but by April that year this was dropped in favour of a browser-based solution and made into a subscription service at $7.77 per month (in 2004 reduced to $2.50) or to Premium members for a one-off lifetime fee of $100 (reduced to $25 from 2003). Each month would offer subscribers around three MP3s and one hour long Ahdio show. Eleven Ahdio shows were available in the first year of the club.

From year two (14 February 2002) technical complexities led to the club abandoning MP3 downloads and instead offered its members four physical CDs to be issued throughout the year as well as the best seats at Prince’s concerts and access to soundchecks.

NPG Music Club underwent a further revamp on 1 May 2003 and the downloads available were sold but at a discount and usually before their commercial release. The npgmusicclub.com underwent a final relaunch on 1 January 2004, providing a much more sleek interface and all of Prince’s music recorded under the auspices of NPG Records and as an independent artist up to that time became available for purchase through the website.

The list below contains the full chronology of exclusive CDs, plus every digital audio track available to Premium members via the Musicology Download Store of the website.
