^ Oldfriends4sale , I think you mentioned on another thread that there was film of the June 7 1984 First Ave show, that coupled with the existing soundboard cleaned up by FBG and 4Dafunk would make for an excellent estate release.

I'd buy a live record if it was released but I am more interested in studio outtakes!

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Oh definately, that is one of my favorites to listen to, and the Time being there too.

Thanks for that link!!! Great information. I had read bits and pieces of that story, but not the full article. Need to keep it for the Revolution haters who claim that Prince had nothing to do with them - particularly Wendy and Lisa - after 1986 smile

And this bit seals the deal on whether there's a recording of the tent show:

*

"A Hollywood camera crew filmed Prince 's party for a documentary motion picture. Meanwhile, the singer and his band had to return to Met Center at 11 a.m. Thursday - just seven hours after the party ended - to shoot some footage for the music video of the forthcoming single "I Wish U Heaven." "

Just another thought on Prince's stamina too....he had a full concert prior to the 2:00am tent show which ended at 4:00am, and then had to shoot the music video at 11:00am...and he looks great in that video.

At 2:20 a.m., the rock star and his band took the stage.
"Now we're going to wake up the farmers across the street,"
Prince said with an impish smile. (An hour or so later they did receive complaints
from as far away as Hennepin County and Paisley Park was subsequently issued
a citation for disturbing the peace.)

Near the end of the post-concert concert, Mattie Baker, Prince's mother, said,
"This is his best concert ever. That's because it's free - improvisational.
He was always able to take an idea and use his imagination and just go with it."

Prince, who tickled the ivories and played some striking jazz guitar,
also showed a bit of humor, an element that had been missing
in his arena extravaganza. At 3:45 a.m. when he finished,
he said, "Thanks for coming out. You're welcome any time."
He then introduced each member of his band and added,
"I'm Prince Poindexter the Third."
Earlier, he had inserted a few musical jokes - playing a couple of bars from Madonna's "Material Girl" in the middle of a jam.

I'd love to see the full Birthday '86 show remastered on blu ray. The October 3, 1988 aftershow at the Roseland Ballroom I hope was filmed. Hearing Patti on Wade In The Water always gives me chills eek

The 20 minute set he played in the dressing room for Paul Gongaware and John Meglen after getting paid for the Musicology tour. That's probably out there, right razz?

Funny story. From 1983 to 1987, the flat where I lived with my mom was right in front of a pretty famous luthier workshop, both on the first floor, very high windows, very high ceilings, Haussmann style (dad bit more than he could chew, our next flat would be waaay more middle-class). The rooms were smaller than this, but you get the picture, with the visible neighbour flat right across the courtyard.

The courtyard was all stone, all surrounded by four floors of building, it was a giant echo chamber. And it was deadly silent, except for the occasional tunings and tests. There were no double windows the first years, so everyone in the building could hear the aides tuning/playing the violins, the violas and the cellos, imagine having the "strings tuning" intro of IIWYG, all day long, all year long.

I could see the workshop walls covered with hanging instruments, right across the living-room window. The aides wore all white, like scientists studying precious wood, with huge magnifiers. They all played very well, they played the occasional scales to make sure the instrument sang like it should. Sometimes a short excerpt of Lord-knows-what, someting classical, gimme a break, I'm only twelve.

I'm twelve, and everyday coming back from school I put on "Purple Rain" (my very first album), from start to finish, at INSANE volumes. Valve seventies amp on Decade Oak JBLs. At 11 it was still crystal clear, and Bernie Grundman was avenged for the ages to come. Those kick drums were shattering Paris' finest wooden floor. The walls could feel it to the bone. I swear, some cellos and violins must have been tuned to the TBO ad lib. Maybe Isaac Stern's axe, who's to say? "Darling Nikki" must have been something, especially the moan, you know the one.

- Did you hear the latest Deutsche Gramophon record, the Dvořák Quintet?
— YOU DARLING LITTLE PRINCE WANTS TO GRIND GRIND GRIND !!! —
- Come again?

Needless to say, they had at least 3 full Prince album playings a week (mom was working late), LOUD, for four years. 4 whole years. "Condition Of The Heart" and the arrival of Clare (The Family! Parade!) felt like some sonic truce: like, "Hey, you classical tight-ass squares, here's some strings on top of funk!".

Now that ain't the truth. They're not squares. On such levels, these craftsmen and craftswomen know their shit, they know music. They take care of instruments that cost a million. While listening to Head or Do Me Baby.

Proof they know music? No one ever came, in four years of Purple Music blasting, asking me to turn the volume down.

I don't know, maybe they got used to tune Rostropovitch's Cello to "Alexa De Paris". I still don't get it. It was on fucking eleven. They never said a word. Prince blasting in the courtyard while they're fine-tuning Stradivariusses. For 4 whole years, maxi-singles, protégés, nothing but Purple Music. They never said a word...

They were fucking enjoying it, the bastards!

Even those with the most sophisticated musical tastes often have a soft spot for original high quality rock/pop music, a la Purple Rain smile

The reason for their acceptance of the noise from ATWIAD and Parade? Three names come to mind...Wendy, Lisa, and Clare biggrin
