Fred Berman narrates this audiobook about the making of "Purple Rain" with a congenial, evenly paced tone, neither getting in the way of the narrative nor drawing attention to his delivery. Based on interviews with all the principals associated with "Purple Rain" (and some brief conversations with Prince himself), the audiobook illuminates the single-mindedness that drove Prince's career, the development of his performing persona, and the business forces that resulted in his concurrently landing the top single, album, and movie. The audiobook also examines "Purple Rain" as a cultural touchstone that merged dance and rock music, and one that proved that a musical group diverse in both gender and race (Prince's band, The Revolution) could be socially compelling as well as fun.
