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!

WTF is Prince using MS Songsmith now?

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:35 (eleven years ago) link

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 (eleven years ago) link

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 (eleven years ago) link

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.

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:44 (eleven years ago) link

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

Jack the Dude-Kicker (HI DERE), Friday, 26 February 2010 18:06 (eleven years ago) link

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

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 18:07 (eleven years ago) link

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.

Anyone read the Duane tudahl book on 83/84? I was kind of interested but the way it has prince quotes scattered throughout rather than just focus on session notes made me put it down after a while. Glad someone has done this kind of book but idk, it seems more to piece together the geneology or chronology of the songs rather than any details on tur actual material?

candyman, Saturday, 13 February 2021 06:17 (two weeks ago) link

Sad prince never made a middle aged man album. I get ppl want to hear him come out with a new kiss or get off so they settle for black sweat but I'd rather hear him do something that reflected where he was in life. Or was that what emancipation was, partially at least?

candyman, Sunday, 14 February 2021 08:03 (two weeks ago) link

I kind of feel he was already there in the '00s. He wasn't shy about showing his age in either his tastes or acknowledging how much older his audience was now (especially at live shows). On "Lay It Down" (one of the few keepers on 20Ten) he refers to himself as the "purple Yoda." So he was really comfortable as an older dude, but he carried on with style. Towards the end, I felt like he was consciously trying to style his look on the '70s as a throwback to the culture he knew from his youth, right down to his hair.

birdistheword, Sunday, 14 February 2021 08:35 (two weeks ago) link

That's prince doing his 'old man in the club' routine. Idk if that's quite the same as a genuinely middle aged prince accepting his age and career stage. The purple Yoda tag was also a bit silly. Not exactly princes time out of mind or (insert other well regarded album by artist in his autumn years). Honestly as he got older I think a lot of the ballads became rote slightly, seduction by numbers.

candyman, Sunday, 14 February 2021 09:48 (two weeks ago) link

But yeah, the hair was him returning to his 70s look, and prob also him trying to show some pride in his natural afro hair after decades of doing it very differently.

candyman, Sunday, 14 February 2021 09:49 (two weeks ago) link

i guess what im saying is after the end of the 90s, the most surprising thing prince could do was to stop being a little horndog all the time (and does anyone want that from a man in his 50s?), as after a point, the come-ons, seduction patter, attempts at innuendo and so on started to lose its charm and inspiration, so the freshest thing he could do would have been to lose that shtick entirely. and on a certain number of songs, i think he did.

candyman, Sunday, 14 February 2021 11:00 (two weeks ago) link

im no huge dylan fan and i dont even know what time out of mind sounds like (before i get accused of being racist towards prince and black artists and having some sort of bias towards white artists), i just used that as a fairly well known reference point for a kind of 'late career renaissance' album. i dont exactly want prince doing a bowie and adopting a rather self consciously weary voice either (i dont even like bowie doing that), but yeah, there's a handful of songs from the 2013-2015 period that are exactly what i mean and i think are some of the best stuff he made in the latter years: breakdown, way back home, time, june, revelation. and then in the 00s, apart from TRC, you had the word, the dance, a case of u, future soul song, walk in sand, reflection, somewhere here on earth and here and instrumentals like gamillah, arboretum and beverly park, which some people might think are too smooth jazz/easy listening, but theyre better than his instrumental jazz stuff like NEWS IIRC. it might also just be that i prefer mellow R&B-flavoured stuff he to much else he did during this period.

candyman, Thursday, 18 February 2021 10:10 (one week ago) link

I couldn’t with Prince when he was in his “real music played by REAL musicians” boring uncle family friendly or “going thru the motions “ mode. Give me freaky Prince over that stuff all day any day. That being said - I miss him but am thankful there’s so much wonderful. beautiful and crazy music of his to listen to over the less interesting stuff he made. And it keeps coming. Some amazing SOTT band rehearsals have recently surfaced if that’s more anybody’s speed ( it’s mine). Just great fun to listen to.

SQUIRREL MEAT!! (Capitaine Jay Vee), Thursday, 18 February 2021 11:37 (one week ago) link

prince still trying to be modern and cool in that period isnt that fun to listen to (or avoiding the word sex while singing DMSR on the musicology tour), but the stuff where he stops that, and just sticks to being a good songwriter, with more modest aims i think, is when he did his best stuff, and still worth a listen. breakdown live is 10x better than the recorded version too.

candyman, Thursday, 18 February 2021 12:00 (one week ago) link

I think the Hitnrun duo and (especially) Artofficialage are good albums! Seems to me he was in the process of putting out some solid music at the end of his life.

still hoping the estate release a live album from his final tour. it is easily available on bootleg but they would prob have the early show he did at paisley park in better audio.

The purple Yoda tag was also a bit silly.

Pretty sure this was bestowed by Questlove and D'Angelo and co., and Prince embraced it.

thread spurred me to put art officialage on and the run of 'clouds' through 'this could be us' is really really strong! 'U Know' is a legit pantheon jam.

I think the Hitnrun duo and (especially) Artofficialage are good albums! Seems to me he was in the process of putting out some solid music at the end of his life.

I thought the first Hit n Run was very disappointing even though the last two tracks are really good, but otherwise I agree, Art Official Age and Hit n Run Phase Two were very good albums. If he was still alive, I would've expected his current output to remain pretty uneven. Besides the first Hit n Run, I thought 3rdeyegirl was underwhelming and conventional to a fault, but a middle-aged artist releasing two good new albums out of four within 2-3 years is still impressive.

birdistheword, Thursday, 18 February 2021 18:56 (one week ago) link

the original alice smith version of another love on plectrum electrum is worth checking out. i really liked princes version of it and thought it was his own, until i heard hers, and actually prefer hers now, mainly as it doesnt have that last 'eye hate u'-ish spoken part that prince put into his one.

*AOA

covidsbundlertanze op. 6 (Jon not Jon), Friday, 19 February 2021 04:10 (one week ago) link

Even though AOA went thru the motions for the most part it's the freshest for me of his last albums. The 3rd Eye Girl stuff always seemed to me like Prince letting his rock n roll side run as wild as it could with one of his most mediocre backup bands gumming up the works. AOA was at least a fun listen in spots. But then again I always preferred studio boffin Prince post 1990 ( bar "Rainbow Children" - with possibly his last excellent band )to the Vegas horns and rote arrangements "Musicology" / post- "Musicology" Prince. I saw him twice on the "Musicology" tour and he was a masterful performer but the "essence du Prince" was considerably stifled by then.

SQUIRREL MEAT!! (Capitaine Jay Vee), Saturday, 20 February 2021 09:08 (one week ago) link

Aoa=prince after listening to janelle monae. Agree though, it does feel like he was trying with that one, compared to PE. Also helps that he had someone else producing.
