True,but let's face it.....that would have been difficult for Prince to do lol There's no way he could take a beautiful woman into a recording studio and not try to be with her,romantically.And Vanity was really hard to resist,lol.

yeahthat

Yeah,I think their info is wrong.The V6 version of "Sex Shooter" was recorded in the late spring/early summer of '83,after the 1999 tour.I believe "Vibrator" and a few other songs were recorded around this time,too.

On a side note, the vault seems to have some info wrong. http://www.princevault.co...ex_Shooter It says Vanity's intial tracking took place November of 1983 but Vanity had already left the Prince camp by August 1983. Go figure..

This is definitely a real version because if you read the comments section, Brenda commented:

DAMN!!!!! Sure brings back memories.....and tears

I just noticed that.It's so cool to see Brenda in the comments section.

NO offense to Apples but I do not pay mind to her version either.

This version is excellent.I like it more than the A6 version.Vanity simply sounds more convincing,more believable singing these type of lyrics.Apollonia doesn't entirely pull it off,at least not as well as Vanity does.I also like the way the V6 version concludes.....

New York? ("uh huh"?) I want you to count to 8 ("8")

v'As soon as I get undressed,y'all clap your hands,OK? lol

This has been in my head today and I it is as everyone mentioned so much better than the version that made it to the Purple Rain soundtrack.

Love her intonations

.

C'mon Kiss the gun guaranteed for fun! . . .

At 4:00 "Sex Shooter . . . blow me away. . ."

.

I like how she says Sex Shooter.

I like how she does her voice and she and Prince moan at 4:12 love her little rap

.

Not bashing but Vanity is so much better than Apples in this song.

.

It is fun hearing Vanity's voice with Prince too . . . both of them in unison saying

"c'mon kiss the gun"

.

It is amazing same song but such a different vibe than what was in the movie.

I want Vanity6 unreleased music- there has to be more than the few songs we have.

.

Prince had so many protogees but none matched Vanity in this vein- she just had the charisma and sex appeal -that "it" factor. I know Apples did the movie but Vanity had that UMPH!, that POW-that charisma and charm and sex appeal all at once. She oozed it.

Agree! I like listening to their voices together. We only have a couple of pics of them and few songs with them together so I will take whatever we can get. woot!

I once came up with an idea of how the second Vanity 6 album would be smile

I picked a provocative title for the album: In Search Of The G-Spot eek lol

Side One would consist of:

Sex Shooter (lead vocal: Vanity)

Vibrator (lead vocal: Vanity)

G-Spot (lead vocal: Vanity)

Haven't' figured out Side Two yet,but I'd like for it to open with "Blue Limousine" (lead vocals by Brenda)

I Like it !

Maybe there are unreleased V6 tunes in the vault;they were so wonderfully campy;Brenda with

her cigarette, Vanity w/her tux tails and boots, Susan and her stuffed toy. . .classic 80s camp.

I wish we could get a 2nd album.

There are definitely more unreleased Vanity 6 songs in the vault. Prince told Rolling Stone there is an entire Vanity 6 album in there. http://www.rollingstone.c...e-20160422

biggrin cool

Then it needs to be released. I would rather that than another LRC, Purple Rain. I would take Vanity 6 and/or The TIME. Fun groups and The Time with their pimp car and suits and

Vanity 6 with the hooker get up. Prince was genius!

I think I would literally pass out the day they release that Vanity 6 album. PASS STRAIGHT OUT...

I rather an unreleased V6 album instead of rehashed LRC or Purple Rain Soundtrack . . . I would spend money on a new V6 album. The thing is that hearing it now it still fits in today's dance tracks.

Prince was a genius, his music is timeless.

I am not on the org much but a treat to see this version being

discussed. Appollonia6 were fine but Apples could not even come close to what Vanity brought. Maybe it was the tension between the women that brought out what we hear here - maybe it was Prince and Vanity's chemistry in the mix.

*

We missed something with Appollonia 6 version-it does come close.

No bashing or agrumenting; Please share what you like better in comparison.

I find Apples did not have the swag Vanity had when singing the song; I like Apples fine and do not want to come off as Apples vs Vanity.

I just favor Vanity in the role -she had that it factor and had that tongue incheek , in your face sexy down.

.

Vanity counting - and Prince wailing inthe background.

.

Vanity and Prince singing this together

C'mon Kiss the gun guaranteed for fun! . . .

.

Vanity singing around 4:00 "Sex Shooter . . . blow me away. . ."

.

I just feel it has a quality the version that made it to the movie soundtrack different.

yeah,I find the Vanity version to be much more convincing,much more believable.She was the real "nasty girl" and her image was genuine.You can hear it in her vocals.

Apollonia just doesn't seem comfortable with that song.Her ad libs near the end....."everybody sing it!...."I can't hear yoooouuuuuuuuuu!"....lol...it all sounds forced.

Her adlibs in the whole song- it is noeven justified to compare. I played them back to back and it is laughable ... Prince was so naughty to do that to Apples. I felt cheated first time I heard Vanity's version. Vanity saying the numbers and the Ooo,hoo,hoo's in Vanity's are just sultry. Vanity had it going on and yeah I believe her- I mean back then she was a sex shooter and kissing the gun.

I have to admit Prince in this Vanity 6 version adds a lot to it.

.

and when she says all the Nasty People Sing it - yeah it was all Vanity. It was sexy and enticing.

.

Can I repeat Prince screaming in the background when she tells NY as soon as I get undressed clap your hands ok? - it is priceless. Love the camp and the sexy.

.

Apples waas a fill in a hurry and bless her but on this song it just was not a match. Vanity was as one of a kind.
