Sharing Purple Music...

I've been really caught up in thinking about the importance of Prince music and the mythos and legend of what was. I have two coworker buddies who revere Prince(and one of the wives). So we were talking about a lot of the earlier days of Prince and I brought up pieces they didn't know of. They are not 'hardcore' fans. But they knew the protege work, have clips of him from the Musicology accoustic set etc And the day he died they were two people I was actually able to talk to who 'GOT IT', on what his passing meant.

So I put together a little 'intro' disc of snippets and 'full' pieces I thought would entice them to go further into the Prince canon. And this is the first of what I presented to them.

Have you shared any Prince music since his passing ?

*I typed this out so they were able to try to invision it while hearing it

1. Strawberry Shortcake (Bobby Z drum testing) 6.7.1984 First Avenue Birthday show. Strawberry Shortcake heard in the background became Shortberry Strawcake on Sheila E’s Glamorous Life album in 1984


2. Computer Blue 11:46 min studio session @ the Warehouse Studio


3. Feline (@ Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse 8.3.1984) 34:21min the song was intended for his protégé band the Family


4. The Screams of Passion (@ Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse 8.3.1984) the song was for his protégé band the Family and released in 1985


5. Our Destiny @ Sunset Sound 9.27.1984 (Lisa Coleman on lead) featured live @ the 6.7.1984 First Avenue Birthday Show. It was intended for a 1985 aborted follow-up album Roadhouse Garden


6. Sex Shooter @ Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio 4.30.1983 (original version with Vanity(6) on vocals


7. G-Spot @ Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio in May 1983 originally intended for Purple Rain, then later given to his protégé Jill Jones in 1987


8. Erotic City @ the Worchester Centrum on the Purple Rain tour sound check 3.28.1985 (Let’s Go Crazy B-side)


9. Temptation @ the Theatre Du Verdure mini concert 10.27.1985 in Nice France (heard on the 1985 Around the World in a Day album)


10. Visions recorded on 4.15.1986 at Prince's Galpin Blvd Home Studio. It was the opening track for the 1987 aborted Prince & the Revolution album the Dream Factory (many of the songs were heard on the Sign o the Times album) *I added this because the next one I'm putting together Prince piano pieces.


11. Purple Rain album ending Backward message Forward 1984

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

I did share HitnRun2 with a friend of mine who happens to own a radio station in my home town. Infact, he started playing it over the airways after he heard "Baltimore." Since then, I've shared Xpectation, Lotusflow3r, and MPLS with him. Paid off to share.

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince
