Whats the instrument used for that weird sounding horn sounding bit in the background. More in the fore near the end.

Whats odd is we've been given these tracks for free.
Because I'm sure I read somewhere browneye records saying we all had to chip in to "crowd fund" this type of material
Here's hoping for more...for free

Also, this reminds me of Boy From New York City.

This sounds almost EXACTLY like Freeze-Frame by The J. Geils Band and somehow it really, really works because it's A.) Catchier than that song and B.) Has waaaaaay cooler instrumentation

I wouldn't be suprised if it was the collectors leaking them to sabotage their "crowdfunding"

If you ever lose someone dear 2 U, never say the words "they're gone". They'll come back.

I'm loving it! It almost tows the line as being a Vanity 6 song, but thos horns bring it back to Prince's home.

The vocal melody is something people would chant at concerts, had this been released back in the day. Could defintly see this on a 1999 pt II wink

You can sing Let's Go Crazy on this, it fits pretty well i think.

The beat before all the music kicks in reminds me of Vibrator
Cant believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap pimp2

And I descend from grace, In arms of undertow
I will take my place, In the great below

Pretty sure that's probably what inspired the sound... and then ultimately why it was shelved. Also that Adam Ant "Goody Two Shoes" vibe. Formula: retro 50's rock song structures done with early 80's synth voices ?

Holy shit...what a gem!

And THIS is an example of a song that does NOT sound like a typical Prince song. There are many out there, just shows his diversity. If someone heard this without Prince on vocals they would bet good money it was not Prince. imo.

YES! Why didn't I think of Adam Ant?! I think this song was shelved because I can't picture it fitting anywhere (even as a B-Side)

He should have pushed it to him!

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

You know, a lot of people like to speak badly of Eye Records, but I'm diggin' them a hell of a lot more than Prince's family. We've gotten a lot of cool Prince outtakes, soundboard recordings, DVDs, etc... through Eye Records over the years that we wouldn't have had otherwise. Thank you, Eye Records!!!

1000+ pressings at over $50 each? No fuck Eye Records. Thanks to the guy who has leaked these so you don't have to pay for them.
