Comments:
The so-called 'Freedom day' concert was broadcast with Prince's permission and consequently the sound quality is first-rate. As is the show - very tight and funky with great performances of 'Joy in repetition' and 'One of us', amongst others. The Oprah Winfrey show is a mixed blessing. The music is good, very good even, but the interview has the potential to make you feel nauseous. Prince goes on about his undying love for Mayte, his supposedly 'split' personality and what it is like to be 'free'. The crowd laped  it up but then this is Oprah! Part of a Paisley Park press conference rounds off the bootleg but the sound is very quiet and it's hard to make out everything that's being said.

Comments 
High quality Emancipation era outtakes. Worth getting a copy of if you don't have all of these elsewhere.

The versions of 'New world' and 'Slave' here sound almost identical to the released versions, while 'Goodbye' came out officially on the Crystal ball set so is technically no longer an outtake. The remaining tracks are worth having - not least because they have excellent sound quality - but other bootlegs have them too, most notably Fantasia and The work volume 5(the latter also contains a demo of 'Soul sanctuary', which really ought to have been on this set too, given that it looks to round up cast-offs from Emancipation).

Deane's Comments
This is first MUST HAVE i've seen in a while. It is not without some minor flaws, but on the whole a superb release. Disc One is great and has been spinning in my player at work for days. Disc Two has alot of well circulated tracks, but the new ones make it worth a listen. My major disappointment is the inclusion of Big Tall Wall on the second disc because the sound quality is so poor, esp in contrast to rest of the tracks. I wish I could give this release a 5, but the packaging and the sound quality of second disc just aren't there.

Dale's Comments
What a fantastic release! So there are only a few songs that weren't alreay circulating, so what. Having the first disc - the final configuration of the unreleased Dream Factory album makes this a MUST HAVE! Even though some of the songs on here have been released officially, they are part of the 'concept' and this release would not be as good if they were left off. Some of the songs that appear to be official are alternate verions, such as Strange Relationship, I could never take the place of your man, and Dream Factory (contains the full intro). Train is probably my favorite of the 'new' songs on this album, but I am also fond of Wonderful Day. Teacher Teacher doesn't do much for me, but I'm still letting it grow. The version of Big Tall Wall on this release has an additional minute or so at the beginning, but the sound quality on that track in particular is pretty bad. It starts out very muddy, then gets a little better after the first minute or so, but not enough to make me keep listening. If you are wondering why I rated this a 4.0 instead of higher, it is because; 1)The sound quality (although pretty good) could have easily been improved. There is a high pitched noise throughout disc 1 and some of disc 2, which is reportedly caused by high speed dubbing next to a TV. I don't know for sure if that is true, but it takes away 1/2 a point in my book. 2) The packaging is really sub par for Thunderball, or any major label for that matter. It looks very rushed, and there is even a mistake on the track list printed on the label of disc 2, but whatever happened there I'm just glad that they decided to change it and added Wonderful Day and Teacher Teacher!

Mike's Comments
The Dream factory album is a classic, almost as good as Sign "O" the times. The cast-offs on disc 2 are very interesting, particularly 'It's a wonderful day' which would have made a good B-side to one of the Parade singles as it is very much in that vein. The most interesting parts from this set are also on The work volume 2.

Label : Kicks

Catalogue : #115659

Disc Length : 70:25

Source : Studio Outtakes / Rehearsal

Sound Quality : VG / EX

Year Of Release : 1990


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Studio Outtakes

1. VIBRATOR (DIALOGUE 1) (0.29)

4. CLIMAX (4.50)
5. LISA (6.00)

Rehearsal : 1984

6. BILLY'S SUNGLASSES (51.08)


The last track is one of the lengthiest loose jams in circulation and revolves around the seemingly improvised lyrics of "Billy, where you get those glasses" in reference to Billy Spark's funky white rims. The rehearsal lasts for 51 minutes, and whilst I can perfectly understand it not appealing to the majority of listeners due to it's repetitive nature, there are some inspired guitar solo's played throughout.

                       

RE-UP: Prince "Crucial" - 1CD - various outtakes

Prince
"Crucial"
Studio Outtakes

Tracks:

01.  Crucial Love – From the Lovesexy sessions 1987
02.  Fantastic (Rave To The Joy Fantastic) – Played live several times in 1988 at after-show concerts. A sizzling funk jam with a repeated chorus. Recorded for inclusion in the batman film but was left off the soundtrack.
03.  Crucial (normal version) – Lovesexy Outtake.
04.  Break My Head (if you break my head one more time) – A funny song from 1986. It deals with the familiar Lyrical theme of the unfaithful lover.
05.  Sexual Suicide – Lovesexy outtake.
06.  Girl In My Dreams (Girl Of My Dreams) – Offhead the three ‘o clock 1986, quite simular to jack you off.
07.  Can’t Stop (Can’t stop this feeling I got) – A fast faced pop tune written in 1986 and offered to three ‘o clock.
08.  We Can Funk – Slow sensuos funk with wispered chorus’s and brass very much to the fore. Features a Miko Weaver guitar solo.
09.  Welcome To The Rat Race – Lovesexy outtake, recorded in late 1987.
10.  Witness – From 1986. The Song starts with a recording of a distant conversation and finishes with Prince saying “Guilty seven years hard labour”. Features some screaching like Hendrix guitar.
11.  Red Riding Hood – Crystal Ball session outtake.
12.  Crucial (Extended Version) – Extended version of this Lovesexy outtake.
13.  The H Man – A seven-minute version dating back from 1983 / 1984. Sounds like a raw demo. A drum machine provides the rhythm and an organ is featured throughout. Prince screams and wispers.

Comments
Deane's Comments
An excellent collection of rare gems. Well worth a listen.

Dale's Comments
A nice collection of outtakes. Many of these outtakes are improved in sound quality over other releases, and Poor Little Bastard cannot be found on any other release before this. A few of the tracks suffer from improperly done noise reduction, (which may not be noticeable to the average listener) but on the whole the set is enjoyable. There is an error in the tracklisting on the back cover. It lists Something In The Water (does not compute) as being the first song on disc 2, but the actual song is I Can't Love U Anymore, which is also on disc 3. Thunderball "made up" for this error by releasing the missing song on their next outtake compilation H2O. The packaging is above average including a nice booklet, but the cover could be improved upon.

Mike's Comments
Part of the series of outtake sets that included DepositionFantasia and Dreams. It's not the best of the bunch, there's very little here that had not been available before. Just about everything here is now on various volumes of The work, aside from 'Pheromone' which is an uninteresting loop of the horn line made for BET.

RE-UP: Prince live in Los Angeles 2011 - 3CD - May 29

Prince and the New Power Generation
The Forum
Los Angeles, CA
May 29, 2011

Show #15 of the 21 Nite Stand.  Yeah, right.

A very great long show.  Prince definitely working hard.  Supposedly the last one of the run.  Many memorable and unique moments.  Check out Purple Rain.  Lots of guitar.  Lots of Maceo.  One or two more great encores could have maybe brought the show up to the level of 4/14, but alas it didn't happen. Still a fine ending to a great run of shows.

If you think something's odd about the first couple minutes of the long intro of The Love We Make, you are right.  The band took the stage immediately after the opening act and I wasn't back in my seat yet.  The first two minutes got recorded as I made my way from the back of the arena to my seat in Loge 6.  Don't worry, all was good well before the song really kicked in and Prince started singing.

This one goes out the greatest guy ever.  Within five minutes of the start of the show, the guy sitting next to me notices I am taping.  He types me a note on his phone telling me that is cool and he would not yell and clap.  A real stand up guy.  Worst people ever?  The security at these shows.  Practically assaulting people over taking worthless crappy pictures on cel phones.  Very late in the show, a burly security guy was sprinting towards me, pawing his way through paying customers who were just trying to enjoy the show.  I was sure I was busted.  He passes me by and practically assaults a very calm woman who had just snapped a picture.  I genuinely thought she had a gun or something.  He stands there for 10 minutes barking at her.  Making her scroll through pictures on her phone and loudly ordering he to delete all the pix she had taken at the show.  Thank God. World now safe..

Show.  But a good one.  Lots of guitar.  Maceo Parker night 2.  Best Little Red Corvette by far - over 9 minutes.  Mary J Blige duets on NC2U.  Prince and Maceo both play on Shhh.  Very short Raspberry Beret due to a failed attempt at singing by an audience member.  Prince aborts the song and goes into Play That Funky Music - a great version (also sung by an audience member) due to Princes wicked guitar.  A straight through show.  No bonus encores at the end after an extended wait.

Taped and mastered by JB.

Show #13 of the 21 Nite Stand.

The Maceo Parker show.  The shortest of my 8 shows so far, but a great relaxed show that seemed different and fresh.  The sample thing opened the show, and for the first time in many shows was not boring.  It was much longer and bigger pieces of songs were sung.  Maceo Parker's sax made many songs new again. Best Musicology every.  Peach!  And no overplayed covers.  Maceo enters during Musicology and pops in and out throughout -  and steals the show.  Prince played a brand new red Strat on the guitar songs in the middle of the show.

Show #12 of the 21 Nite Stand.

A really great, enjoyable show.  Maybe the best sounding recording of any of the shows I've recorded.  Prince definitely brought his A game.  Even songs played every night seemed fresh, and the overplayed covers worked better at the end of the show, rather than in the middle.  The Insatiable/Scandalous/Adore sequence was the best of the three times I have seen it, even better that opening night.  A full house.  10 minute thing happened after Adore.  Crowd stayed after Hollywood Swinging and it seemed like there was going to be more, but after 10 minutes or so the plug was pulled.  Orange Strat on Laydown/Dreamer/She's Always In My Hair.  Hohner on all the rest.  Mike Brown plays sax on several songs.  Halle Berry dances onstage during Cool.  Susan Sarandon, along with dozens of others, dances onstage at the end.

Show #8 of the 21 Nite Stand.

Not spectacular, but a really nice, enjoyable show.  Not a huge crowd at all - very few sitting in the uppers - and it seemed to make for more relaxed show.  A more traditionally paced show than the last one on 4/30.  A full, 2 hour set before the encore break.  1 long encore.  No 10 minute wait thing.  When it was over, it was over.  A very nice quiet opening - very much like 4/21.  Orange Stat on first 2 songs.  Hohner on all the rest.  Whitney Houston pops onstage during a very long Musicology.  Don't over expect.  Cedric the Entertainer attempts to sing during Raspberry Beret.  The song sort of falls apart, but it allows Prince to throw in some tasty guitar licks.  The show had an odd end.  Prince leaves the stage after the vocals on Kiss - does none of the butt shaking dancing that he has done on all other shows - but the band completely finishes the song as per normal - as the audience/dancers are methodically led off the stage by security.

A really good sounding show.  One of the best of the bunch so far.  I shortened the encore crowd by a couple of minutes so the show would fit on 2 discs.

Show #7 of the 21 Nite Stand.

For the most part, a really good show.  More of a party show than the show on the 29th.  It seems that the Saturday night shows are more party shows and the weeknight shows might be a little more interesting.  Sheila E. onstage for most of the show.  A very good, long show, but I'm growing a bit tired of so many covers.  What would you rather hear at the end of a show?  Peach, Laydown, and Endorphinemachine  - or Play That Funky Music - again?  The 10 minute wait thing happens before the sample medley and before the The Bird.  Show ended with house lights on with Gwen, her famous husband and dozens others dancing onstage.  Sound quality mainly is equal to the others, but probably not quite as good as the best two - 4/21 and 4/29.

Show #4 of the 21 Nite Stand.

A nice show, but my least favorite of the three I attended.  This show was sort of 4/14 light.  A good long show, but no real surprises, except for a few covers that included guests.  Not enough guitar (none at all on LRC).  Show never seemed to really kick into high gear.  A more traditionally structured show.  The 10 minute wait thing didn't happen until after the third encore.  I'm afraid the spectacular 4/14 show is a unique event that may never be repeated.  Don't get me wrong, a less than spectacular Prince show is still great.  Sound quality is equal to the others.

Show #2 of the 21 Nite Stand.

Another great show.  Not a as spectacular as Night 1, but still fantastic.  Main show was probably better than the 4/14 show (especially the very classy, non-medley first hour), but the 4/21 aftershow encores were nothing to write home about.  Everyone is now hip to the 10 minute break thing, so very few left.  Lots of guitar.  Prince played two different Strats in addition to the Hohner.  Prince was onstage for entire show except for Glamorous Life.  The long guitar intro to LRC played on 4/14 was not played.  The 20 minute opening song is about as good as it gets. Sound is as good or better than my first nights recording.

Show #1 of a 21 night stand.

A truly spectacular show.  As good as any I have seen by anyone ever.  After the first encore, the show appeared to be over - at least 2/3 of the crowd left - but the lights never came on.  After 10 minutes, the lights came on just enough for roadies to set up Sheila E.'s drum stand.  Show lasted another 65 minutes.  Encore 5 is the . . . Best. Encore. Ever. Not my best recording ever, but still great. For you guitar geeks like me - all guitars by Prince - and he only played the Hohner.

I don't have a whole lot to say about this show that hasn't already been written.  This was the show where Prince called Kim Kardashian up on stage and then curtly dismissed her, so it's the most discussed show I've been to in a long time, but I have a slightly different take on that whole episode than what has been reported.  It is true that Prince ended Kim's turn up top with a petulant "Get off the stage!", but there's more to it than that.  At that point in the show Prince was doing a character, a petulant man-boy whining to be pimped for, requesting a "big sexy mama" and truculently refusing most choices with a churlish "She may be too sexy".  The first woman up, Paula, did the bump very competently with Prince, but was dismissed with "Get off the stage!" before Kim even came up.  That was the shtick:  woman is chosen, maybe dismissed for being too sexy, maybe comes up, dances, and then a pouty Prince tells her cheekily to get off the stage.  The media made it sound like Prince sized up Kim and summoned up that line just for her.  Not so.  Having said that, Paula danced and Kim didn't.

The other thing needs pointing out about this show is that it took the cult of the encore to a brand new level.  When I was younger, back in the seventies, bands would play a show and then really go off stage. They'd be off for 15 or 20 minutes, maybe longer.  They had to have time to do some drugs.  Then they'd come back, and they'd usually play one song, and it was very often their big hit.  Then they'd leave for good.  Anybody been to a show lately knows that bands often come back from their first departure within about a minute (the surest evidence I've seen that drug use is down) and are playing increasingly long encores, that now often amount to mini-sets.  This is the result of a logical type of inflation.  Songs played in the "encore" portion of the show are more valuable than songs played as part of the regular show.  A certain magic attends the encore, a delight associated with getting a treat, with finding money on the street, with a snow day.  So why not put as much of the show as possible in the magic light of Saturday morning, summer vacation.  Encores become longer, maybe 4 songs, and occasionally now you get a second encore.  Lots of bands do it, but nobody does it like Prince.  After only 11 songs, Prince asked us to support the arts, said thank you and good night.  What the hell?  A normal show would be about 22 songs.  Well, Prince came back all right, and counting the second encore, played a total of 17 more songs.  This is first show I've ever been to in which the encore was actually longer than the show itself.  But I'm not complaining.  Every thing about a Prince show is wacked out in one way or another, and he worked hard for us.  It was a long show and he performed at a very high level.  You probably get more for you money from Prince than from anybody, except maybe Springsteen.

Cee Lo played a fun, high energy first set with an all chick band, and the Abbott and Costello contrast of constitution between him and Prince was amusing when they were out together for Crazy.  Funny thing here was that Prince is apparently squeaky clean on the language front and had all of Cee Lo's monitors remind him not to say it, as well as having a sound tech actually come out and talk to him before his encore, to the effect, presumably, of don't say it.  Cee Lo didn't have to say it:  the audience sang the chorus loud and clear, while Cee Lo just grinned and chuckled.  Even the power of Prince has it's limits.  But not many.
