It's been seven hours and fifteen days... This is the recently unearthed, ORIGINAL recording of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U." The song gained worldwide fame when it was covered by Sinead O'Connor in 1990, but the track was actually written by the Purple One way back in 1984, and initially given to his side project The Family on their self-titled 1985 album. Once O'Connor's version blew up, Prince reclaimed the tune by performing the song at concerts, eventually leading to a live version being released. The live version was the only way to hear Prince Rogers Nelson perform the song for the longest time, until two years after his death, when this previously unreleased recording was discovered by Michael Howe, the official vault archivist for the Prince estate. Needless to say, this is the superior version. Includes the full length "Nothing Compares 2 U" and edit on limited edition 45, complete with reflective pic sleeve. Recommended.
