Upon their release in 1993, the shorthand descriptors were that THE HITS ONE contained the "clean" songs while THE HITS TWO had all the "dirty" stuff. It's not quite so simple. Such songs as "Controversy" delve into politics; "Purple Rain" and "I Would Die 4 U" explore Prince's deeply felt religious iconography. And, with only rare exceptions, Prince's songs tend to be more teasing and erotic than blatant. Even the most outrageous tunes, like "Head," have a sly wit that marks them as much more than Penthouse Forum titillation material. Bottom line: these 18 tracks are the very pinnacle of '80s and early '90s pop-funk. THE HITS TWO contains two previously unreleased tracks, the funky "Peach" and the calculated-to-shock "Pope." This disc and its companion volume are also available as a box set with an essential bonus third disc of b-sides.
