Limited twelve inch vinyl repressing of this single lifted from the funk/R&B singer/songwriter's 1984 album Purple Rain. Combining a mesmerizing hook with strikingly sparse production dominated by synths, electronic drums and spellbinding vocals, Prince scored his first #1 hit with this instant and enduring classic. Includes one of Prince's best-loved B-sides: 17 Days.
A. When Doves Cry (LP Version)
B. 17 Days (The Rain Will Come Down, Then U Will Have 2 Choose. If U Believe Look 2 The Dawn And U Shall Never Lose.)
