    Yes and apparently if you can program your player to override the region codes it will play. I haven’t actually done this but others have.

    12" but it's just the album version. Still sounds great.

    At one time I had that picture disc in my collection. It’s a very cool piece.

    Raspberry Beret is Prince channeling Stevie Wonder whos influenced by Paul McCartney who's imitating John Lennon who's been listening to a lot of Dylan.

    I can't remember where but I had heard as he was recording this album he contacted Rolling Stone and requested every back issue covering the Beatles.

    I remember being a kid, reading in USAToday at the time that he was retiring after this album, believing it and being bummed.

  15. As a Prince fan since the ‘90s, when everybody made fun of him, it’s been weird to see everybody turn purple in the last five years. Record stores that never stocked Prince have the reissues, and the vault is finally open. I was lucky enough to find pretty much every ‘80s album and 12” on vinyl already - and cheap too, because nobody was buying Prince for a long while there.

    Prince is the biggest section in my record collection, and I file Prince as his own genre in iTunes so he doesn’t choke out everyone else in R&B, pop and rock. Besides, which is which? He’s his own genre.

    I haven’t bought all of it - I like the idea of having something to look forward to. Someday, I’ll be in a big Prince phase and really need to get an album, and that’s when I’ll pick up the 3rdeyegirl record.

    This is an excellent live version of She’s Always in My Hair, one of my favorites.

    Prince was ridiculed in the 90s? Don't recall that. But being a Prince devotee it'd gone over my head, anyway. Do remember Dave Chappelle doing it in his show in the 00's.



    Good to hear someone talk about using iTunes. Thought I was the last dinosaur holdout. Got his entire discography and then some in iTunes. And can't be mussed to switch to Apple Music just yet. :)

    The Glamourous Life Sheila E. (1984, warner Bros.)
    1. The Belle Of St. Mark 00:00
    2. Shortberry Strawcake 05:06
    3. Noon Rendezvous 09:53
    4. Oliver's House 13:49
    5. Next Time Wipe The Lipstick Off Your Collar 20:09
    6. The Glamorous Life 24:01

    Prince, of course, wrote and produced much of the material on Glamorous Life. Shortberry Strawcake (killer), Noon Rendezvous, Oliver's House and the title track always pick me up.

  20. Absolutely. I wonder if there was even one article written about him from 1994-2000 that didn’t include some wordplay or negative comment about “The Artist Formerly Known As…” or about him writing “slave” on his face.

    Oh that. Well, dude had a point. Warner Brothers, like most of the artist-killing record companies, was fleecing him. Wasn't gonna be a happy slave.

    Funkatopia (and his various guests) usually has interesting discussions about Prince and the Purple Universe. This one is on the individual members of The Revolution:
