Deane's Comments (rates this release 3.5/5.0)
This is the CD set that started all these large outake sets. Although most of these tracks can be found on other releases it is an important and excellent set to have. It was perhaps the first good collection of unreleased Prince tracks ever put out. Includes a great booklet with info about every track. The sound quality varies and tracks are in more or less chronological order. Disc three has 17 seconds of the 1986 MOJO interview at the end that is not listed on the package. An update was released called The Jewel Box II which is not as good.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 3/5.0)
At one time this was considered an excellent collection of outtakes. Now-a-days though it is slightly below average. All the tracks on this set are available on other releases in better quality.
