What's the best-of Prince's post-contract output?

I'd love to make a CD of the best-of Prince in the post-WB era (Meaning, the era in which he produced music where he controlled his own masters right away, so everything from TGE to AOA minus his overlapping, protracted Warners output). What's a best-of CD you'd construct (80min)? It can be non-chronological, but I'd love to have the tracklist...thanks!

The masters to TGE belonged to WB, not prince, though it is not clear who owned TMBGITW since it was first copyrighted (p) by NPG Records then once more by WB.

I have no idea what u're trying to do (for whom? for what?) so I can't help with a tracklist, sorry smile

For a relatively complete list of post 1996 singles, check the singles section of Princevault.com.
