Euphoria Highway

Euphoria Highway is an unreleased track recorded on 17 February 1986 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California while working on Jill Jones' first album Jill Jones.

In a backstage meeting with George Clinton after Prince and the Revolution's guest appearance with Sheila E. on 6 March 1986 at Universal Amphitheatre, Universal City, CA, USA, Prince gave Clinton a tape of the song (along with Eternity) for use on a planned album by Vanessa Williams that Clinton was set to produce, but the project did not come to pass.

Other than Jill Jones singing the title phrase during the song's introduction, it is an instrumental piece.

I see it as an extension of the year, 1987, Sign O The Times - there ain't nothing cohesive about Sign o the Times 'cept it's brilliance. Similarly Jill Jones transcends the more limited (albeit still brilliant) earlier protege albums by not being stuck in a specific year or new studio sound.


Throw Madhouse's "8" in there, and that makes for a perfect, vibrant, exciting, marvelous 1987 summer. Being a Prince fan in that year, you just knew you were going with the best pop, all the other artists were left in the dust, no matter what the charts said.
And if you had the chance to witness the concert, forget it, you're over and done.

Imagine having Dream Factory or/and Crystal Ball, and Camille with it.
"Stop, you're killing me!".

I have grown a strange sympathy for Warner's executives.
The guy comes up not with a handful of gems,
but the whole Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier and Bvlgari vaults. The Arsène of all Lupins.
You wouldn't even know where to begin, when it comes to market all this stuff.



Im laughing

BUT

"F" is 4 frustration
I'm looking 4 what isn't really there
"I" is instigation
I'm listening 2 the voice beneath my hair
"N" is 4 the naked body
And 4 what my naked eye can see

CHORUS:
G-spot, G-spot
Where, oh where can U be?

"A" is 4 America
And 4 the things U read in magazines
"L" is 4 location
I am a clock, the time is 9:15
"L" is 4 the lust we share
We want 2 know that infamous pleasure

CHORUS

"Y" is 4 my yearning
I'm burning into mystery

Ooh yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh Lord

I don't want no trash
Gimme some of that

G-Spot is the second track on Jill Jones's first and only Paisley Park Records album Jill Jones, and within a few months of the album's release, G-Spot was released as the album's second single. Although Jill Jones shared official writing credits, the song was written solely by Prince.

While exact recording dates are not known, basic tracking for Prince's original version likely took place in May 1983, at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, USA. It was both considered for Vanity 6's sophomore album as for Purple Rain and its title appears in versions of the script as late as October 1983. In the movie the song was to be performed by Prince. It it is also the only song title mentioned in the earliest incarnation of the script (then titled 'Dreams'). It was ultimately cut from the script before shooting commenced in November.

Both Vanity and Jill Jones cut lead vocals for it at the Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Vanity's version was presumably done in the spring of 1983 and Jill Jones's lead vocals were done sometime after Vanity was out of the picture, possibly later that same summer.

The song was ultimately mixed the song further on 30 January 1986 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (on the same day as mixing With You, Mia Bocca and Baby, You're A Trip, and recording It's A Wonderful Day).

Prince's original version contains Prince calling out "Maceo" for a solo and the line "I don't want no trash, gimme some of that popcorn" (taken from Mother Popcorn) - this is an homage to James Brown and saxophonist Maceo Parker, with whom Prince would work many years later.

M.C. (O.S.) G-SPOT & ELECTRIC INTERCOURSE
Ladies and Gentlemen -- please
welcome Prince!

The CLUB erupts in CRIES! Prince hits
the stage, launches into "G-spot," a
fast, high-spirited funk tune that gets
the crowd hopping. Vanity watches as
Prince whips the crowd into a frenzy.

F is 4 frustration
I'm looking 4 what isn't really there
I is instigation
I'm listening 2 the voice beneath my hair
N is 4 the naked body
And 4 what my naked eye can see

G-spot, G-spot
Where, oh where can U be?

A is 4 America
And 4 the things U read in magazines
L is 4 location
I am a clock, the time is 9:15
L is 4 the lust we share
We want 2 know the infamous pleasure

Y is 4 my yearnin'
Burnin' into mystery

G-spot, G-spot
Where, oh where can U be?


Morris listens with a complacent grin on
his face, his eyes searching out various
members of The Time who are scattered
through-out the club. When he connects
with one of them he makes a series of
absurd faces which sends them into
hysterics. For Prince is playing music
that The Time is noted for, and, as far
as Morris is concerned, performs better.
Not everyone in the club is dancing, or
paying attention, and this does not
escape his notice.

Suddenly "G-Spot" comes to a rousing
end. The CROWD cheers wildly.

LYRICS?

My Sex is an unreleased song recorded in early August 1985, at the Washington Avenue Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota

The song was intended for Jill Jones' album Jill Jones, and at one point was considered to be the title track, as Jill Jones thought it encompassed the album's theme, but the song was ultimately not included as it was not considered to be strong enough.

In addition, Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens (a close friend of Jones'), contributed to three tracks on the album. However, only the cover of Prince’s "With You" made the album. His other two contributions "77 Bleeker St." and "Baby Cries (Ay Yah)" were issued as B-sides.

VIOLET BLUE

What's a woman to do?
Across the street
Waits a man she's promised to
And in her presence
Is another with eyes of violet blue

All aflame
Her body when he approaches
Steam heat

She closes her eyes
Imagines his voice
So sweet, so sweet
Eleven minutes
And she'll be late

What's a woman to do?
Across the street
Waits the man she's promised to
Indecision reigns and the catalyst
Eyes of violet blue

Eleven minutes to love
Is too little
Too much
I could listen forever

But if I hear too much
It could stay in my mind
And all could be lost
If I'm not careful
I'd never want you so

We already lost one minute
For us
That's one more year we got in it
For us
That's one more year
Things we don't know
Eleven minutes to love

Is he married?
One day
Does he wanna be?

I wish I could tell
Just from holding hands
But with his eyes so gentle
He whispers
Only mental communication
Is all he wants me to hear

Even though I don't want to
I must leave him now
I can't let him see my tears

Jill Jones on Tipper Gore (and the Parents Music Resource Center): Tipper Gore was on our ass. (MTV) banned my video ( for the single "Mia Bocca"). They would only play it in the middle of the night, at 3 am... She directly impacted my life, she actually did in a weird way...

Yeah I assume Jill Jones is talking about the needed American audience attention.

I remember seeing it, and it was before midnight here

My first album was a very long pregnancy, good God, it took so long get out. It was a really ace album, but, the timing was way off. I don't think everyone was ready for it. Radio wasn't looking for it. There's a rap convention in Atlanta that I went to and people came up to me saying “you're Black? I didn't know you were Black! I would've played your record.” I just came back to Prince, like, “should I just get a tan?” White people somehow knew I was Black and they said “I'm not playing that house Negro on the radio.”
The album was dead in the water. Then, I went to a function and I think I was crying. A Warner Brothers executive (Rob Dickens, CEO of Warner Brothers UK) saw me and he put money into the project to do promotion in Europe. We made the (music) video (for the single "Mia Bocca")...They (Europeans) always liked Josephine Baker, that whole thing always worked. I was discriminated against in my own country. I opened for Jody Watley in LA and, seriously, the crowd just stood there whole time with their arms crossed. I was angry dancing. I was singing “G-Spot” and I was like “I'm not going to shake my ass.” I know (on past tours) I would go out in my bra and panties, but, then I put on my trench coat and I'd leave. I just threw the mike down and walked off the stage. Prince came to me and said “is that it, are you done?” Maybe he created the diva in me.
I think the album was a very intellectual album. We made a decision to take a lot of the poppy songs off. Once Clare Fisher puts the strings on it... I wanted to leave them on... That's where I sealed my fate to never have a hit record...(Prince) could have given me "The Glamorous Life". Sheila E. would come to the studio to play basketball and I did not know that the child was going in (to the studio) late at night and singing the songs...

Man she's so hot.
She may very well be the strong-headed woman of the pack.
Emotional "child". Ouch.

I don't see the point of being bitter.
I still remember shaking my young skinny butt to the looped riff of "My Man".
And "For Love", I will do... many things.

It's a fantastic album that requires a high end audio experience.
The vinyl recorded on cassette tape in your walkman was three dimensional, hologram my ass!

Prince writing about himself like he's the inescapable center of his woman's attention always cracks me up.
Or fascinates me. I guess it depends on a Trump's version. Chi... Chili saaaauuuuce.... Ow Lawd....

Still, what a beautiful happy sad love story.
Jill was supposed to be always in his hair.

What's a woman, tout doux?

Ain't no fury like a woman scorned.

Baby was her trip.
In a half.
But she didn't care.
Or did she?

maybe 'she's always in my hair' turned into a negative by 1989/90 neutral

A Liar Shall Not Tarry In My Presence

Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the m

Baby Cries is a pretty hot song, it fits 1987 way more than Mia Bocca or G-Spot

OF4S I love your threads.

Can you explain what the issue is with choice of songs on the album? I've read on other threads that it should have come out earlier / it sounded dated when it came out in 87 etc etc. ... But I've never found that myself - even when I first got it in 87, as a teenager. Maybe I'm a bit musically unsophisticated, but like someone else said, it just sounded like an eclectic collection of songs to me - like SOTT itself.

.

That's interesting about Rob Dickens investing in her European career - maybe that's why she turned up on the Jonathan Ross show (The Last Resort) - i've got a tape of that somewhere. I don't think any other proteges ever appeared live on UK TV in the 80s.
