I bought that one after it was released from the vaults in the 90s. I had heard all kinds crazy stuff about it like it was a forerunner of gangsta rap and whatnot. Needless to say I was really disappointed. It's been years and years since I've listened to it (I have it on cassette if that's any indication) so maybe I should go back and give it another chance.

Yeah...and hopefully without the expectation that it was a "forerunner of gangsta rap" (??)

What was the name of that rival group? They brought the funk

you can hear alot of hip-hop in Prince actually. His sheer eclecticism the main draw

I never understood that either. Presumably the person who wrote that review was talking about "Bob George".

There's a vast, vast gulf that lies between having some of elements of hip-hop in your music, and being a "forerunner to gangsta rap".

Ok so I'm just starting to get interested in Prince but havent heard him perform many songs. I love When Doves Cry performed by Patti Smith, When you were Mine by Tegan and Sara but I cant see Princes originals on You Tube...well I CAN see them just can't hear them.

Why's that?

some sort of silence order

he is a genius
he can/could play any and all instruments in all of his music
he wrote the music and lyrics to his songs
he performs the songs

too bad no one can hear hin on youtube --

Twenty eight people, mostly friends and family, had viewed the YouTube video by June, when mom Stephanie Lenz said she received an e-mail from YouTube informing her that her video had been removed from the site at the request of Universal Music Publishing Group, the recording industry's largest label, and warning her that future copyright infringements on her part could force the Web site to cancel her account.
dont know if thats princes wishes or what but i saw that limewire and frostwire supposedly still have his vids available

right. My question to the Prince lovers of MB - which albums are really worth checking NOT including Purple Rain or Sign O' The Times?
