Deane's Comments (rates this release 2.75/5.0)
This release could have easily been split into two sperate releases. The first cd is all Prince outakes and rare releases: The Truth cd single, the Border cassette single, Face Down promo 12", etc. Fairly pointless useless you don't have any of these. The second CD is the Carmen Electra Acetate with some additonal tracks, enough said about that. The packaging is great with a small booklet and a miniposter of Carmen from her Playboy shoot.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 3/5.0)
This release may have been cool when it first came out, but now it is pretty pointless. If you aren't a completist don't bother.

Mike's Comments  (rates this release 2/5.0)
There are far too many officially released tracks on here for it to be worth getting. Moreover, some of the outtakes like 'Work that fat' and 'The sex of it' are incomplete, which makes you wonder why they were included in the first place as complete versions are available. The Carmen disc nicely rounds up just about all of the demos and unreleased remixes from her time on Prince's label. The last track - 'Two-four-six-eight' comes from a Playboy laserdisc and has no Prince involvement.
