That's one of my favorites on the album. Prisoner is not so much disco as it is new wave. By the time this came out disco was dead and new wave was just beginning. So what does Cher do, changes with the times and records a new wave sounding album.
They are two really good examples of what I am talking about. Hell ON Wheels is the closest this album comes to disco. On the front cover of the album, she appears to be completely naked, with long hair draped to cover her breasts. She is wrapped in chains and wearing a wide metal collar. Her wrists and ankles are tightly shackled with wide metal bands. The cover spurred controversy among some women's rights groups for her perceived "sex slave" image.
Originally the album was planned to be titled Mirror Image , pointing out Cher's known brave side and her newly found 'wild disco' side.
Since Cher wasn't really into the album she wanted to "rock out" she kept on refusing songs on one hand and adding songs on the other hand. Since there was nothing left from the album's original plan, the title was changed into Prisoner before release. This CD unites all the tracks from both albums, merging them onto one single CD. Cher recorded an exclusive TV special called Cher Two the Hard Way Take Me Home Prisoner Smash Hits.
