http://www.myvideo.de/watch/6729113/Prince_Purple_Rain

1 - “Purple Rain was released by Warner Bros. Records on June 25, 1984, and was Prince’s sixth album. Prince wrote all of the songs on the album, some with the input of fellow band members. ”I Would Die 4 U”, ”Baby I’m a Star” and ”Purple Rain” were recorded live from a show on August 3, 1983, at the First Avenue club in Minneapolis, with overdubs and edits added later. This marked the first time Prince included live recordings on any release.[8] The show was a benefit concert for the Minnesota Dance Theater and featured the first appearance of guitarist Wendy Melvoin in Prince’s band, The Revolution.”

2 - “Prince won two Grammy Awards in 1985 for Purple Rain, for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group and Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or TV Special, and the album was nominated for Album of the Year. Prince won a third Grammy that year for Best R&B Song (songwriter) for Chaka Khan's cover of “I Feel for You”. Purple Rain also won an Oscar for Best Original Song Score in 1985.”

3 - “Purple Rain sold 13 million units in the United States, including 1.5 million in its debut week,earning a Diamond Award from the Recording Industry Association of America. According to Billboard magazine, the album spent 24 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard album charts (August 4, 1984 to January 18, 1985) becoming one of the top soundtracks ever. Purple Rain traded the #1 album chart position with Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A. twice, during 1984 and 1985. The album has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
