Comments 
Although these rehearsals all date from roughly the same era they cover a very wide range of material. The piano rehearsals are stunning and appear to be totally improvised which makes them even more remarkable. The summer '83 band rehearsal seems to be an attempt to get the band familiar with some of his new material, while the First Avenue rehearsal from August 1983 is specifically for a particular show. It's available elsewhere but only here is it complete. The last rehearsal, dating from a month or two into the Purple rain tour concentrates on just a few tracks, none of which went on to be regularly featured in the live set. A magnificent collection of material.
