AllMusic Review by

While most of the releases in the Original Album Series bundle five consecutively released albums by a given artist, the volume devoted to Prince -- released for a brief period in the U.K. -- skips around a bit. This compact box contains 1999 (1982), Purple Rain (1984), Parade (1986), Lovesexy (1988), and Diamonds and Pearls (1991). Each disc is packaged in a thin cardboard pouch. With the exception of Diamonds and Pearls, they feature reproductions of the original front and back sleeve designs. As one might be able to determine from the packaging, this set does not featured remastered sound.
