Exactly a decade after Prince closed his NPG Music Club, an archive of his most popular websites has arrived.
The Prince Online Museum culls more than a dozen Prince sites – including 1800NewFunk.com and 3rdEyeGirl.com – as “a reminder of everything (Prince) accomplished as an independent artist with the support of his vibrant and dedicated online community.”
So notes the statement on the museum website from director Sam Jennings, who was also webmaster of Prince’s NPG Music Club web site from 2001-2006.
“We are the originators, we are the experts. It is a labor of love, no money has been exchanged. There will be no downloads sold and no membership fees required. But we do have working versions of almost all of Prince’s official websites,” Jennings said.
Among the treasures fans will find on the various sites are videos, interviews, photos and audio clips.
The official Prince websites featured on the Prince Online Museum include:
NPG Music Club v1 (2001), screen gallery
TheDawn.com (1996), screen gallery
Prince Interactive (1994), walkthrough
