    Yes, I'm so glad "Phase One" wasn't his last. That one was pretty weak. Right now I'm listening to "Lotusflow3r", another pretty solid of his later albums.

    I might take this day to watch the "Purple Rain" Blu-ray I bought a few months ago, maybe even followed by the "Sign 'O' The Times" Blu-ray.

    Dammit. I never pictured that Prince could possibly die so young. I mean besides his hips, his heart, lungs and muscles must have been in tremendous shape. Even if the doctors had said, "Never dance again," you don't need to dance in the studio. He could have had albums into his 80s, or even 90s!

    That's the saddest part to me. He took a drug that would have killed even a healthy elephant. He could have just stood there on stage and he would have still been electric.

    Boy, the guy sure could radiate a smile.

    I don't disagree with what you're saying, but for the most part... that wasn't Prince. It was all or nothing.

    Yeah, but if you came up to Prince and said, "Okay, if you dance again you'll die sometime in the next 5 years, but if you quit dancing you'll live to be 97." Do you really think he would take the 5 years over the 40 more years of life?

    Thanks for the link! The last time I listened to their stream online was this time last year when it was just announced he passed and were playing all Prince tunes. They pick some great cuts to play

    It's been great so far, songs picked according to different themes, lot's of deep cuts mixed in with the hits and stuff from almost every album, for example they've played several songs from "The Black Album" and even one from The Truth ("Comeback", fittingly), as well as obscurities like ”F.U.N.K.” and the 2013 remake of "Let's Go Crazy” (I missed those). Right now The Revolution are in the studio picking songs. :thumbsup:

    If I know the Dutch "Sometimes It Snows In April" will figure high on the list.:) What did you vote for?

    All of them, but it's over now, they picked songs and shared some memories for an hour. They are at Paisley Park for the Celebration that's going on there (and the show is broadcasting from nearby).

    Maybe they'll re-run it later, they'll be playing Prince all weekend it seems. It was cool hearing some of their thoughts on and personal relations to songs. They actually mostly picked pre-Revolution songs, and talked about what they thought of those songs when they first heard them or first played them, etc.

    After mulling over whether or not I should, I gave the "Deliverance" ep a spin today. It was weird... I loved every minute of it. It was that thing we've been spoiled with for decades now: new Prince music. "He's still got it!" I could say to myself...

    And pretend...

    "Deliverance" (the song) is back up for sale (in mp3 and FLAC), but the EP's release is still blocked by a restraining order.

    The EP was on Tidal this morning around 8 AM EST to stream. Doesn't appear to be there now, though. It's still on my offline content. Not sure when that will go away if it remains to be blocked.

    He may just have played runs, but I love his playing--it's always interesting and then, you know, the whole showmanship thing
