I actually liked her version of Our Destiny in 3rd place to Lisa Coleman and then Prince.
But would have welcomed it on an album back then.

.

I sometimes wonder if Jill would have done a little too much, if she had Sugar Walls.
I keep wondering how Vanity would have handled it, thinking of Sex Shooter.

.

And All Day, All Night (Prince/Jill co-leads) would have been hot

.

But yeah those 7 could have been a hot JJ 1984 release

Is there a song with more rock from then that she could have done?
Killin At the Soda Shop, her vocals weren't on point.

“Mia Bocca” was originally recorded in 1982 so it could have been included as well.At that stage,it didn’t have the Clare Fischer orchestration but that’s OK.A Jill Jones album released in 1984 (or early 85) would have had the true Minneapolis Sound,anyway (synth heavy).

Yes, I wonder thought was there any developement from it's 1982 demo prior to 1986?

It was probably originally vocals/some lyrics and piano

That album was 3-4yrs in the making. I hope we get some kind of Deluxe edition for this one and the other protege albums.

.

JJ's 1987 should have been a 1983-1984 and 1986-1987 album

.

G-Spot if not released on an album should have been a Bside to Computer Blue(which should have been a single) or released on it's own. In 1984/85

.

Mia Bocca also should have been a Bside 2 Girls & Boys(which had no Bside) or released on it's own in 1986


There is a recently circulating 2CD deluxe edition bootleg (pirate) of the album which includes the single tracks and the outtakes from this album and the planned 2nd one. But, yes, I agree, we need an official deluxe edition.

We were HERE, where were you?

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

That's a pretty impressive lineup of songs you guys came up with for JJ. Which makes me wonder even harder why Prince did work a little harder to push Jill as a solo artist. He put money & time into so many but Jill, not as much. Is there something obvious we are overlooking?

Loved this album and Jill as an artist until she became the crazy cyber bitch she is now. Someone needs some therapy to prevent all that vile she spews all over social media.

Prince may be the purple Yoda, but Wendy & Lisa and Eric Leeds also sit on the Jedi Council.

I like her album a lot. The songs are great, the Clare Fisher contributions add a lot to the music, and the album cover art looks great, especially her outfit and the font and the photo in general and the Mia Bocca video is one of my favorite Prince related videos.

Too bad it was released so late. This could have been a huge hit.
