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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine 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 (nine 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.

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

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

like I could put up with the verse and I could put up with the chorus, but not both together in the same song; that is exactly the wrong thing to do, dude

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

at least the Vikings playoff song was awesome in its insanity; this is boring, mild-mannered shit that thinks it's shit-hot

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.

was watching that WMGGW RRHoF solo again and had never thought of before how ballsy a move it is to not only throw the guitar after the solo, but Prince is wearing a hat while doing this, and how easily could it have tipped his hat, but of course no, because Prince can somehow by sheer will pull these things off

like the way he enters the car at 1:30 in this video, which surely is a first take, but how does he know that he can do this and it won't go wrong:

My wife and I visited Paisley Park yesterday. While there's no way it could have lived up to expectations, the whole thing seemed particularly bittersweet.

Our tour guide had moved from Tennessee two years ago presumably when Graceland got involved and it seemed she hadn't a particularly passionate fan. She kept blankly saying things like "Yeah...how about that? Isn't that cool?" about whatever item or room she described, which was maddening. There were some basic questions that she didn't seem to know the answers to. That said, the few display cases were great to see -- a cassette demo w/ "Andre Prince Bobby Matt" written on it, the lyrics to "Soft and Wet" handwritten in neat teenage cursive, the Linn (!), an original drawing for the 1999 cover, the "Dreams" notebook that turned into Purple Rain...

A while back I remember reading that they'd only been like 5 or 10% of the way through archiving, cataloging, etc. Also that the tax implications of not having a will meant that the process of turning it into a museum was sped up to generate revenue for the estate. Two years in, it still felt kind of thrown together. There's so much that they didn't cover, I have to think it's still a work in progress that will be built out over time. I hope to get to go back in a few years for a proper tribute.

Thanks for sharing that! My partner and I have been considering making the pilgrimage.

We saw Princess (Maya Rudolph's Prince cover band) the other night and while the singers definitely could have put more energy into it it was still a great show. The band was super-tight and they played mostly upbeat stuff from 80-83, including the extended live version of Lady Cab Driver and a really funny version of Cool by Morris Day and the Time.

Fetchboy, Monday, 6 May 2019 18:05 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Eh. Where's the super deluxe version of the album itself, with b-sides and outtakes and alternate tracks and stuff? The fan-made version of that is awesome. Don't think I need or want a DVD set with duplicate DVDs/blu-rays and commentary and docs.
