    One of the best and most overlooked albums by P most didn’t like the jazz form or biblical lyrics but the Najee sax played in free form is what made this along with the virtuosity of the band playing work it showed musical growth in every way from Production to guitar arrangements and that’s just the opening track another straight put it on and let it play

    What a great album. Fantastic recording, beautiful transparent Vinyl, and when played on the rainbow mat, it looks even more epic. Full marks!

    Not only is this an awesomely unique Prince album to listen to but the packaging and rainbow slipmat makes it, IMHO, a must have for any Prince fan. And the slipmat is now a permanent addition to my turntable. Love it!

    An often and wrongly overlooked album. This is beautifully packaged and a must for collectors of all things Prince. My only grouse is that the vinyl is only 150 grams. Hence. . . Dear Prince Estate, if the choice is coloured / clear 150g vinyl or 180 gram black vinyl, kindly opt for the latter. I'm certain He would agree!

    I've always been a fan of this album, and always wanted this on vinyl. Having finally gotten "The Rainbow Children" on LP, it was definitely worth the wait. The SOUND is so much richer than CD it's like hearing it for the first time again. Definitely get this on vinyl!

    One Nite Alone This is a great recording of the live performances. Sounds great...nice packaging. Rainbow Children sounds of my most fav recordings in vinyl sounding great and LOVE the clear LP spinning on that colorful mat Thanks!

    I feel one of Prince’s finest albums. It covers his spiritual side along with his views on race. It’s amazing how Prince was so far ahead in his views on this album. He could have written it today ! The music is amazing. One of my favorites of all time. Well worth purchasing!!

    Love it, I have been a Prince fan since 1978, my first concert was the Controversy Tour! I also attended the Rainbow Child Tour in Atlanta, GA. I will never forget it, I drove from Greenville SC to attend. I sat between two couples, they couldn’t believe I was attending the concert solo. I am a Prince Fan!! Til the day I die!!!

    This set is BEAUTIFUL! Of course the music from this album is a masterpiece. The clear vinyl itself is incredible but once you see it spinning on top of the rainbow slipmat. WOW! Breathtaking! Thank U Prince Estate. Another homerun. Now... where is the N.E.W.S. vinyl experience?

    While there was a slight delay in shipping, once the product was in hand, it's fantastic. The clear vinyl is fantastic and especially with the slipmat design showing through the clear vinyl as the album spins. The sound quality is perfect, the inserts with lyrics and extended artwork are high quality and sturdy. It's definitely worth the wait.

    Gorgeous album on dead quiet vinyl. I couldn't be happier. The slipmat is the cherry on top. RIP Prince.

    Simply one of the most uplifting albums ever! To me, the energy from this album is completely uplifting. It has got me through some dark times in my life and stands proud in my Prince collection. So great to now have it accessible on vinyl too. This album is still bold, and is as relevant a message and hopeful ideology as the world needed then, that it most certainly needs now! MLK would be proud too. Buy this. Study it. Feel it!

    A masterpiece! I remember when this was first released I was totally stunned and mesmerized by the sheer genius of it. As a Prince fan for all of my life, I knew that this was one of his greatest works ever. It can't be touched. The jazz influences and perfect musicianship had me in total awe. Get this album! A lot of people back then didn't appreciate it They had no idea of what a concept album was. Many still don't. I still have my original CD vetsion, and I am going to love listening to this vinyl edition!
