PRINCE'S FATHER'S NEW ALBUM to be released on March 2nd: Don't Play With Love - The John L. Nelson Project

Prince's Father's new album entitled "Don't Play With Love - The John L. Nelson Project" will be released on March 2nd.

"A long anticipated release, the songs of John L Nelson brought to life at Paisley Park by Sharon L. Nelson an an all star band led by the great Louis Hayes. Shelved for a time due to John L. Nelson's frequent collaborations with Prince, the music sheet music re-appeared in a rather serendipitous fashion and destiny was fulfilled. Sublime in its presentation, with classic melodies that the writer mastered, Don't Play With Love brings a rich past right to the present day."

Here are the details:

https://johnlnelson.bandc...on-project

"release date: march 2, 2018
It’s like any other story - or every other story if you dig in. A man carries the mantle and holds down a career for love and for family, while his creative instinct persists in his off time. John L. Nelson was the first black man hired at Honeywell in Minneapolis, and for 35 years he was off to work at 7 AM. At night he would compose, and play his music on the piano. The kids would head to bed upstairs at 7:30, and they’d drift off to sleep listening to their father’s piano playing.

I like the track on Bandcamp.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Sharon is delusional but if it keeps her busy and out of court then it is a good thing. I feel sorry for his older sibs I feel they want to be famous for something 😳

its worrying that people like her now have power. We have Tyka saying Prince called me about producing a few tracks! I mean really! We know that's a lie right there! I will go with Susan Rodgers who said Prince would give his dad some writing credit so he got some money! But didn't think he actually contributed to the songs.

Agreed. It's not likely the John L. Nelson project was 'shelved' due to 'frequent collaborations with Prince.' Besides the scarcity of known collaborations one only has to look at the time since John Nelson's passing where Prince chose not to produce or release this project even though he had his own studios and label.

executive producer Londell Mcmillan is all you need to know about this project! Shelved because of his frequent collaborations with Prince! What the hell! Anybody else smell something!

—- Right now none have power and it may be a few years before they do. The older sibs are not spring chickens so I do not think they will cause a lot of problems.

It is a vanity project and I doubt they recoup the cost spent to record it. I wonder who footed the bill.

If it comes out SNJ's disbursement so be it. If they were smart they would invest any advances they receive in the stock market and go make some real money.

My only real concern is that weasel gets SNJ in the whole with him finacially that he gets a piece of the estate. The other sibs are going to have big problems if he get any parts of SNJ's shares.

Yes, it could happen. Remember LM offered Tyka a 10 million dollar risk free loan. Anyone can weasel a share out of any of the sibs by simply leanding them money and if you activilty work to keep the estate tied up in court it works out even better for you to buy your way in.

Well I'm really glad you put this out here. No one else has ever said this so it's an angle no one has thought of, except for you. Really scary because we are currently talking half the heir's ownership given his connection with them sad

Yes, he or anyone could get half. Now we know Prince assigned royatlies for the last four albums to Dreamcorps and we know the WB contract has licenses for some albums that go on forever and different end and start dates for other titles. This type of stuff makes it difficult for anyone to come in and do a massive selloff but having share means having a say and that can mean having the power to keep things tied up in court and preventing income generating deals to get off the ground.

LM was too close to UMG, Breamer and Kopplecrook for my taste. He moved too quickly and is still hanging on.

A lot of this stuff is in the court docs. Not everything becuase he had all this money in this corporations I doubt we will ever know everything he was doing.

Prince on his father: "He has dreams where he’d see a keyboard in front of his eyes and he’d see his hands on the keyboard and hear a melody. And he can get up and it can be like 4:30 a.m, walk right to his piano and play the melody."
