Here’s a cool uncredited remix of “Controversy” that I recently came across. It makes an extremely funkalicious song even more funkalicious.
‘Controversy’ was Prince’s fourth album, released in 1981, sandwiched between ‘Dirty Mind’ and ‘1999’. The funky hook of the title track gives way to the raw power of “Sexuality”, the piano F-me ballad “Do Me, Baby”, and Prince’s first politically slanted songs, “Annie Christian” and “Ronnie Talk to Russia”. The album is 25 years old this year… ouch! Go pick it up on Amazon.
