4 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"

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 (4 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.

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.

"Housequake" is such a glorious track but I must say I've always had a problem with the production/mastering.
It's too thin/flat (like most of SOTT and his 80s output).

"Housequake" is such a glorious track but I must say I've always had a problem with the production/mastering.
It's too thin/flat (like most of SOTT and his 80s output).

The extended unreleased version is the tits. I wrote this about it many a moon ago:

A fascinating, extended version of "Housequake" that remains unreleased, shows this Prince at the peak of his powers; at over seven minutes, the almost dubby mix features a chorus of Princes led by Camille calling, responding and jiving while the song passes through bass grooves ranging from a jazzy walk to popping funk, all punctuated by fuzzy metal power chords, wailing guitars and JB horns, supported by a typically crisp electronic beat and working itself into a feverish pitch. Brass aside, it's all Prince, and it's stone-cold brilliant.

I think most of his records could use a good remastering.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 November 2014 19:42 (1 week ago) Permalink

haha apparently his engineer Susan Rogers was not a fan and probably responsible for him shelving it

'"It was sappy and just plain silly", says Susan Rogers of 'Adonis and Bathsheeba', which she describes as a syrupy and sentimental ballad. "I mean, there's romantic love and there's syrupy love - this was pure saccharine. The chorus went 'Adonis and Bathsheeba in a garden of love' and a harp came on.

I was sitting there as quiet as possible but I had a laughing fit and I just couldn't stop. And I was really embarrassed because I was sitting next to Prince and he asked "What's the matter with you?". I said, "I'm sorry, I just think the song is really funny". And he said, "You don't like the harp?". He would often ask us our opinion. I said, "I've got to be truthful, I think the whole thing is just silly. I just don't think it's worthy of your best work". He didn't like criticism but we didn't work much longer on it".

The swooning, yearning music of 'Adonis and Bathsheeba' is clearly intended to summon thoughts of romance, but the overall result is disappointing due to the bland and insubstantial melody as well as Prince's quivering, affected vocal delivery. The arrangement is cluttered and overwrought with strings, horns and other instruments competing for attention.

The song was tracked in Prince's home studio on July 27th 1986, shortly after he had completed the final version of 'Dream Factory'. Eric Leeds added a saxophone part on the same day. Prince appears to be fond of it as the lyrics were published in '10,000' magazine released in 1993 under his supervision. Furthermore, Eric remembers Prince commenting to him that he thought it was "one of the best lyrics" he had ever written. The song was one of the 17 chosen by fans during the 'Prince: A Celebration' week in 2000 for inclusion on a possible 'Crystal Ball Volume 2' album'.

There's a new - um - not official collection out there called Back To The Basics 2.0 that has at least one cd's worth of mid-80s gems. Haven't been able to score a d/l link for it anywhere but these YT vids are all sourced from that collection. Also, the fabled "The Flesh" jam session recording done pre- "Parade" is also out there. Prince plays drums throughout.
