One Nite Alone... Live! is a live album box set by Prince and The New Power Generation, containing live recordings from the intimate One Nite Alone... Tour performances. The album was released in 2002 but many of the tracks were new arrangements of songs dating from more than 20 years earlier. It was the first album since the Love Symbol Album in 1992 to be credited to Prince and The New Power Generation. Among the album's highlights are "Sometimes It Snows in April" and "Adore" at the piano, an extended "Joy in Repetition", and an energetic "When U Were Mine". Prince's backing musicians include Maceo Parker, Candy Dulfer, Greg Boyer, Renato Neto, John Blackwell, and Rhonda Smith. The entire album was recorded live from the audio console by Prince's concert sound engineer Scottie Baldwin. Baldwin's essay on the recording process is included in the liner notes.

Although One Nite Alone... Live! is put together in such a way as to suggest one continuous performance on each disc, and the sequence resembles live shows of this period, the songs were actually recorded singly at different times. The first two CDs contain the main act, the third CD the aftershow.[2]
