The 1981 Controversy Tour version of DO ME, BABY from the New Orleans show is the DEFINITIVE version...

Seriously. It will melt your face off. Crystal clear recording with just enough crowd noise.

Prince's vocals that night were ON ANOTHER LEVEL. Super impassioned. The band was on

point too. Incredible. I can't imagine how this song could have been better.

"Never gonna stop lovin' you, baaaa-baby... Gonna NEVER STOP!! NEVER STOP!!! NEVER STOP!!!

NEVER STOP!!!! NEVER STOP!!!!".

Is this the same show that boasts the "Punk" version of Annie Christian?

Yes! There is some punk energy throughout the show, but especially on that song.

Great boot. I just could kick myself for not going...I was in Baton Rouge at the time about to move to N.O. On my regret list!!!
