I love the 12 inch version (movie) and cannot find it anywhere. The odd keyboard parts and cool band breakdown are so Prince.


Are you joking? You can't find the 12" of "Let's Go Crazy" anywhere? Not ever, ever? You've looked all over and it's just a mystery, huh? That same version that is on streaming sites like Pandora & Spotify, available as the 12" on Amazon, eBay, and Discogs or, more currently, on Purple Rain Deluxe, and Ultimate?? Just can't find it, can ya?

The "odd keyboard part" is Matt Fink. Prince told him to play something and Fink realized the song is about going crazy, so he just started slapping his hand on the keyboards not giving much thought to whatever keys he was hitting. Prince liked it so much, they replicated it in concert.

While you're digging for that elusive "Let's Go Crazy" 12" version, pick up Duane Tudahl's Purple Rain Complete Recording Sessions book. It'll tell ya all about the song.


Also...the 12" version of Let's Go Crazy had the extended version of Erotic City on the B-side. There is absolutely no way this can't be found somewhere.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
