Summer Mixtape: 10 Artists to Try or Revisit Today

Summer is winding down and so is our Summer Reading Challenge. Music was the subject of the season this summer with Libraries Rock.

When Prince passed away in 2016, it was difficult to get a hold of his music through my preferred streaming service--past conflicts with streaming companies led Prince to have his music be available on very specific platforms, one of which was NOT the one I use.

So this CD, along with hoopla, helped with the grieving process. Bless.

The Legend with all of his best tracks on one album!!

" What is here are the big songs -- "1999," "Little Red Corvette," "When Doves Cry," "Kiss," and so on -- all presented in their single edits. And, frankly, that's enough to make this a dynamite collection, perfect for those that just want one Prince disc, and a good, solid listen of some of his best. Besides, this trumps both Hits discs by including "Money Don't Matter 2 Night," his best single never to reach the Top 10." Stephen Thomas Erlwine

I suspect those thinking they want just one Prince disk with find themselves looking to add more to their collection after listening to this compilation.

A great little compilation, THE VERY BEST OF PRINCE covers music from his late-seventies debut through his eighties reign up to his early-nineties success with the DIAMONDS & PEARLS album. I enjoyed almost every track, so I would agree that this is definitely the very best with minimum filler. I recommend it.
