Well, if you’ve been reading Ickmusic, you know that I like-a-da little Prince man. And you might know that his latest ALBUM, 3121, is unleashed to the world this Tuesday, March 21st. So do yourself a favor, listen to a couple of tunes by the man, then head over to Amazon to buy 3121. Cool? Cool.
A couple of relative rarities for you. First off, a couple of gems from ‘Purple Rain’. If you’ve ever heard the album, which most of us over say, 30, have, then you’ve heard “Computer Blue” segue into “Darling Nikki”. But did you know there’s a whole ‘nother section of “Computer Blue” that was edited out of the album. Well color you purple, go on and listen to it…
Prince & the Revolution:
Computer Blue (extended), Darling Nikki (mp3)
And then check out this outtake from the Oscar-worthy (cough cough) film soundtrack, Graffiti Bridge.
The Grand Progression (mp3)
Buy 3121 (and any and all other Prince albums) at Amazon.
And my old buddy Chris in Miami is seeing the man live this Saturday night. Chris, you best post a review here afterwards…
