Often wondered whether he asked the Foos if he could cover it or whether it was a nice surprise for them.

Yet somehow you avoided all the interviews where they talked about this.

Wished he'd have recorded it.

Tried checking PrinceVault?

I really don't get why people who claim to love something do absolutely zero effort to learn a little bit more about that thing they love; even merely Googling it seems to be too much effort.


Christ, you having a bad day or something? confused

I've seen the Foos interview where they talked about Prince turning up to jam with them, but I haven't heard any mention of the Best of You. And the last time I went fishing for the "PrinceVault" and downloaded something my laptop was crippled with a virus, so I don't go fishing anymore.

But if it makes you happy and validates my Prince fandom in the eyes of others, I'll try harder in future ...

princevault.com is an information website that has in depth information on his tours
and his entire released catalogue as well as a huge chunk of his unreleased songs.

i'm not sure how you could manage to 'go fishing' for that site and end up with some
virus?

See, I didn't even know that was a thing. By "PrinceVault" I assume it meant any of the mystical bootlegs floating round tbe internet ether. Following the laptop virus debacle when I went to download something I assume was from the "vault" I dont Google or approach anything Prince Vault related on the interwebs anymore.

you're missing out nod if you just go to www dot princevault dot com you get a very basic
site with no downloads not commercials not virus shit or nothing. just tons and tons of cool
in depth information. it's sort of a prince bible, online.

Studio - When Will We B Paid Live - Johnny B Goode from the power trio show


i just re-discovered this a few days ago. i wish it had been on the chocolate invasion
or something because it's so good that it really deserved to be on an album, i think.


Agreed. TCI and TS could have been 12 tracks each with When Will We B Paid, My Medallion, Jukebox In A Heartbeat and Van Gogh added to the rest. It's a real pity Prince felt they had to be 10 tracks each.

i would have LOVED to have 'jukebox with a heartbeat' in the same quality
that we now have these albums in lossless from the tidal store.

Unfortunately TCI is another version, with MM instead of The Dance. Not that I don't like MM, I love it, and it's nice to have that first configuration as well, but the original version remains unavailable in that sound quality.

I really have no idea how that happened: I've been downloading thousands of records, movies and series illegally over the course of the last 15 years, from a great deal of different sources, and I never caught a virus or trojan by doing so. Normally, if you have a decent antivirus and you don't download from a suspiscious source, it shouldn't happen.

I always thought he did a good cover of Let’s Go. Unfortunately this is the only thing I can find on YouTube, not the best quality.

I was told at the time it was my rubbish anti-virus. I was a bit of a noob back then with ICT stuff ... learnt the hard way to get more educated when it comes to computer and laptop use.
