My main complaint concerns the inclusion of 'If I Had A Harem II ' which is obviously a fake recorded by someone in a bluesy rehearsal style - it's pretty passable, and one of the better fakes circulating, but it is a fake nonetheless and something which Thunderball should have picked up on. Sheila E's 'Girl Power' is undoubtedly one of the worst tracks Prince was involved in during this period, and it's baffling to conceive that the same person who was working on the Lovesexy album came up with this at the same time.
As with all other volumes of The Work, this set is by no means complete and Thunderball appear to have picked the tracks judging by their sound quality as it is consistently high. The accompanying booklet contains brief info on each track along with some nice pictures from the era, and whilst it isn't exactly detailed, it is nice eye-candy. Out of the 5 volumes in The Work, this set rivals Volume 1 as the best in terms of sound quality and content and it is a stunning overview of Prince's work from the period.

The 'Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic' project is slightly touched upon no pun intended with the inclusion of the sublime 'Me Touch Myself' before we are rushed off on to the Batman era with the next 4 tracks. As with a number of discs in The Work set there is a hidden track at the end of Disc 1 which doesn't appear in the track-listing and isn't mentioned in the booklet. The hidden track on this disc is 'Batman Theme' which, whilst it is not of the best sound quality, not the most interesting content, is a great addition as it is usually overlooked and certainly not something which appears very often on outtake sets.
It's hauntingly atmospheric and would have been a perfect compliment to the Batman theme - once again a real pity it remains unreleased. Next up are 3 tracks from the proposed Jill Jones album and whilst they are fairly typical of Prince's output from the period, they are actually pretty decent pop songs. Robin Powers awful 'Number One' follows and is a real contender for the worst piece of shit Prince ever got involved in - so bad I can't possibly pass comment.
The remainder of the disc contains various alternate versions of Graffiti Bridge tracks, however the quality is rather lacking on a few - in particular the instrumental versions of 'The Question Of U' are extremely thin and slightly abrasive to listen to. The rough demo ish take on 'Thieves In The Temple' is another highlight, but as seems apparent with most outtakes from the era the quality of the recording is lacking.
The disc then closes with 'We Can Funk' which is the George Clinton-heavy version often referred to as version 6. Disc 3 begins with 'The Grand Progression' which is slightly out of place on this particular disc as it dates from late - mid Yet another version of 'Soul Psychodelicide' has been added, however this is probably the best of the 3 which are on this volume, and certainly the best in terms of sound quality.
The mid-section of the disc contains a few tracks from various side projects including a number of tracks intended for a maxi release of 'New Power Generation'.
Ironically the sound quality of The Time's tracks is superb and certainly better than most of the Prince material. The opening 9 tracks on Disc 4 R U There - Good Body Every Evening contains the tracks recorded for the Flash project dating from late to mid and feature Margie Cox on lead vocals throughout. Unfortunately I find them extremely difficult to listen to due to a mix of her screeching, piercing vocals and their terrible mid's production values - these are not Prince's finest hour.
I must admit that this is my least favourite volume in The Work series as nearly half the tracks on here are from various related artists, and whilst Prince's input is clearly audible throughout, the quality of the tracks is overall very amateurish and it's certainly understandable why they remain unreleased. The actual Prince material from this era is very reflective of the Batman theme and as such it is dark, brooding and lacking much humour.
Obviously there are a number of stand-out tracks which take you completely by surprise, but unfortunately there aren't enough in here for my liking. As with any large collection of studio material, the sound quality varies slightly from track to track, but there's nothing on here which suffers from anything serious and all are of very respectable quality.
