A great round-up of Purple rain-era rehearsals. Quite a number of the songs featured were played rarely, if at all, during the concerts of 1984-85 which makes this set very interesting to anyone who has graduated beyond being a casual fan. The first rehearsal here is for the birthday show of 1984, the second pre-dates the start of the Purple rain tour by just under a month and is by and large a performance of the regular setlist, while the third is most likely in preparation for the 'homecoming' St. Paul concerts just after Christmas 1984. This is definitely recommended.
