Deane's Comments (rates this release 4/5.0)
This is a great collection of Prince TV appearances. The Emancipation Concert, Oprah Show, Today Show (includes one unbroadcasted tune), Rosie O'donnell, Chris Rock, Brit Awards, Top Of The Pops, NAACP Awards, and The VH1 Honors.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 4/5.0)
This is one of the better discs from this set because it isn't broken up with all the speeches to the extent of some of the other "channels".

Mike's Comments  (rates this release 4/5.0)
An excellent round-up of Prince's TV appearances from 1996 and 1997. Everything here is also available on other titles but it's nice to have these performances collected together, in fantastic sound too. Despite its appearance here, the recording of 'Talkin' loud and sayin' nothing' for the Today Show was in fact not broadcast (the video of it is on the Freedom 1.0 CD-Rom).
