All of a sudden, on New Year’s day 2003, a new Prince album was released, exclusively available to members of the NPG Music Club. A jazz album with special guest Vanessa Mae.

In 1987 The Black Album was to be released. It ultimately wasn’t. At the very last minute Prince retracted the album. What prompted that decision?
This year my son asked me if I had published my 10 best songs yet. Why not was the next question. Hereby I present my list.

Prince makes his first double-album: 1999. It turned out to be Prince’s breakthrough in the US. On his terms with an album that contains a lot of experimental music. Looking back at a crucial album in his career.
The new album was partially introduced during the 1992 tour. Was it better than the disappointing Diamonds And Pearls? Unfortunately…
The Time: the most beloved, well-known and popular Prince satellite act. In 1982 they released their best album What Time Is It?. Looking back on The Time.

In 1982 the album by Vanity 6 was released. 35 years ago Prince’s second satellite act was launched. Is it just about the lingerie or is there more? A look back.

In 1992 I bought a male/female pin at a Prince show and decided to turn it into a necklace and hand-made pendant. From pin to necklace!

The deluxe expanded version of Purple Rain. For the first time since ages once again nervous about a Prince release. Rightfully so?
One Nite Alone… Solo piano and voice by Prince, an album made available exclusively though the NPG Music Club, 15 years ago, and as a result is hard to get. A shame, for the album is worth your time!
Better than any article or text, Prince needs to be seen. An incredible, emotional, beautiful version of Motherless Child. Prince at his very best!
Death, Prince, Tribute
One year ago the musical genius Prince passed away. What has happened since then? What will become of his vast musical archive. A look back.
