Hey y'all, RR Auctions has yet ANOTHER Prince-related auction up now, and honestly, this stuff is EVEN BETTER than the previous lot. If the new tax policy didn't mean I'm paying a lot more in Fed taxes this year, I'd probably be bidding on WAY TOO MUCH stuff!

“When he lived with me, I thought he wasn’t doing anything during the day while I was away at work, but I found out that he was teaching other kids in the building how to play instruments and that they would have jam sessions. Prince was the kind of person who like to teach and bring out the best in others. - Sharon Nelson on her brother, Prince”June7, 8/17 in the forums

“Well, that WB deal for the PR reissue was developed by those who really didn’t know my brothers business, we are not consulted or asked for input on any of the released materials. You are probably going to see many more mistakes since many of those in charge are not asking us for input and are making decisions while attempting to learn Prince 101. - Sharon Nelson”June7, 8/17 in the forums

Honest question: if Prince's father was the original composer of elements of the Purple Rain melody or even if his work was a subtle inspiration to it, why is that necessarily a bad thing? Sharon definitely left that answer open/vague - and I'm not sure if that was totally on purpose OR if mystique/speaking in riddles is a family trait. IMO - her making it a point to say that PR was one of her faves because "she heard the melody first" from their dad more than likely speaks to there being some kind of fond family memory associated with the melody and later the song. But that's just me...

With that said, I understand everyone's desire to preserve Prince's legacy, but thatt doesn't take ANYTHING away from Prince at all. And frankly, with Prince's varied interests in many styles of music and growing up with a father who seemed to frequently be composing music, I would be VERY surprised if there never was any overlap between music he heard growing up and the music he later created. James Brown, for example, is ALL OVER some of Prince's funk output, so why wouldn't John Nelson be?
