four years pass...

Yo, while me and Q-Tip were performing 'Vivrant Thing' in Vegas last night...this n-a Prince walked out on the stage, took the guitar from our guitar player and just started rocking! None of us knew he was there until he popped up on the stage...then the n-a vanished like Batman, LOL!

The sound crew said Prince was in the balcony watching the show from the very beginning (The balcony was closed off). Then when 'Vivrant Thing' came out, he just came backstage and walked out on stage.

None of us knew what was happening, then when we finished the show he was gone LOL!

i want to say "nothing can ever erase the work he did in the 80s" but i somehow wonder if this song is actually capable of erasing the master tape to "if i was your girlfriend"

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:39 (six years ago) Permalink

With the amount of stuff going on in the background it sounds like he recorded over the top of something. In case anyone is wondering what the reverse bit at ~3:30 is, it's Prince saying "contracts just make you smaller".

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:41 (six years ago) Permalink

the problem with all of prince's stuff from the 90s on is that i think he fundamentally misunderstands what made him great at one time.

he's a great minimalist that thinks he's a maximalist.

eh he's done some good minimalist stuff since the 90s - Black Sweat, for ex.

i should do a poll, this song versus his vikings playoff song, which sounded like the work of a slightly deranged lutheran church choir director

title tracks of musicology and 3121 were pretty good and stripped down imho. there was some other track on musicology that I liked but I'm blanking on it at the moment... but yeah his hit-to-miss ratio is pretty sad.

The "Manic Monday" demo, though hardly perfect, sounds cleaner than i'd expected. Who's singing it with him? It sounds like Vanity, but I'm guessing not.

No lie-- after I charged it my iPod shuffle mysteriously deleted every song on it except for 1: Joy in Repetition. I listened to it all day yesterday bc it was the only song on there and I think it might actually be a year long now.

I unplugged it a few days ago and finally listened to it yesterday on my walk to the train. It was a super cool coincidence when that was the first song that popped up, and then when it played twice I thought I had a weird setting wrong (and I was thinking it was still a pleasant coincidence but maybe one I didn't want to let persist for the rest of the day). But I pressed all of the buttons (2) multiple times and turned it off/on many times and it was the only song that came out of that thing all day. What a guitar solo! Dang.

Come underrated as well.

just now i listened to Partyman and Gett Off back to back and fuck's sake, they are just monumental. the hard lock of the beats, New Jack Swing with the toughness of the guitars in there too. ffffffuuuuuuck.

it is weird how his dying has completely opened up all these songs for me again.

prince didnt really do anything approximating new jack swing until acknowledge me around 92/93 or so or love sign. partyman is def not NJS. the drums are too rhythmically straight for that.

StillAdvance, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 08:01 (four months ago) Permalink

OK I admit I'm not a connoisseur. Maybe I should have said that the things I like about it sound a lot like the things I like about NJS. The utter lockedness of the beats, the remorselessness, the interplay between synthetic and live.

WW's had Dream Factory which I grabbed – not sure if it's the same version as the one Alex posted upthread and Alfred raves about but I'm really happy to finally have it. The SOTT that was up there was just the regular record (which is weird – I feel like a thief!).

Agree with those that praise I Wonder – just a great track. Feel like that version of "Come" deserves some, er, love as well.

Ah! My word search missed it as it hid Prince's name. Got it. Damn ... 10 CDs. If ever there were an artist, record or era that deserved an official treatment like this, it's Prince in the run up to SOTT -- the finished double record is the product of three different unreleased records (Dream Factory, Camille, Crystal Ball) and it's kind of unquestionably his most fruitful period. The sheer breadth of it all also puts into perspective Prince's battles with WB -- yes, the material is amazing and, yes, any one of these alternate releases almost certainly would have sold worse than SOTT ultimately did.
