Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 163/500!
Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering & Pressed at RTI on 180g Vinyl!
Released in 1982, 1999 was the fifth album to be released by Prince. His
breakthrough album was the first album to feature The Revolution and contains
"1999", "Little Red Corvette" and "Delirious".
The album was critically and commercially successful setting into motion two
years of successful tours, hit singles and even a Hollywood movie. 1999 was
ranked number 163 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of
all time in 2003.
"I didn't want to do a double album, Prince said, "but I just kept on writing. Of course, I'm not one for editing." The second half of 1999 is just exceptional sex-obsessed dance music; the first half is the best fusion of rock and funk achieved to that date, and it lays out the blueprint for Prince's next decade. Except for a few background hand claps and vocals, Prince plays most every instrument himself and creates a relentless, irresistible musical sequence of apocalypse ("1999") and the raunchy sex that he proposes as the only possible response — "Little Red Corvette," "Let's Pretend We're Married," "Delirious" and, well, just about every other song on the album." - www.rollingstone.com
