Purple Rain: 20th Anniversary Special Edition

4

In the most embarrassing decade in pop, it seemed Prince could do no wrong, due in part to the enormous success of 1984's Purple Rain. Yes, he minces amateurishly from one ludicrous set-piece to another. But it's a marvellous spectacle for fans of a certain age and, as `The Kid' wins a local battle of the bands and secures the affection of Latino lovely Apollonia Kotero, you can't help but give the little guy a cheer.
