Better than first issue
This is a big improvement over the first DVD issue primarily because of the widescreen aspect. The sound is pretty close to the first, a little bit better. I'm still disappointed by the same letdowns that are present on both. They both do not show the closed caption during songs. Now that this deluxe DVD has the trailers for Purple Rain, we see the obvious deleted scenes that we should have had. the bonus materials are great, the videos and such.

The Soundtrack was released on my B'Day, June 25, 1984
The fact that this soundtrack was released on my birthdate, June 25, and at a milestone age 17, is wonderful and miraculous in itself. God Bless

Rock's Epiphany
This IS the movie that changed my life. Prince broke all the rules and set about reinventing music and the movies. He told us it was okay to be different. (There is Beauty in Strangeness) Nothing would ever be the same.. truly a revolution. 20 years on and it still holds up pretty well, although we have all changed with the times (and grown a lot older). I wonder how Prince would feel watching it now...?
