Available for sale on April 10, Purple Rain: Music on Film looks at Prince's film debut in the 1984 cult classic that finds him playing a musician known as The Kid who gets romatically involved with Apollonia. The film contains extended concert sequences and its soundtrack album was a critcally accliamed best-seller.

Author Muir wrote, "Just past the quarter-century mark, director Albert Magnoli’s Purple Rain (1984) continues to fascinate and intrigue global audiences.  An MTV-era update of the classic back-stage musical format, Purple Rain introduced a wide audience to Prince and his world in the Minneapolis music scene. Although the Reagan decade is long since over – as is the Prince fashion craze of ruffled collars – Purple Rain continues to gain enthusiastic new fans the world around."
