Prince Guitar Solos - Live!

After watching Prince's performance on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" again, can anyone recommend any other performances from him that are as good guitar wise?

oh yes!
I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man
1987
pure spontainious joy right there in that solo, never ceases to make me smile

Purple Rain solos are my favorite smile
Rave un2 Year 2000
AMA'S 1985
he knows how to get in there emotionally!

Honkey Tonk Woman is just a guitar orgasm for your ear
kind of ironic he's doing a Stones cover smile super funky, espcially if you love the blues!

I thought that was the best version of that song, but then I say the Coachella one. Orgasmic. A few others of my favorites are;

Fury (SNL)
Joy In Repetition ONA Live
Just My Imagination
chill..prince doesnt like men being front row, makes it hard to sing the ballads

Practically all of small club's solo's are amazing

I am listening to Zappa's guitar solo album right now. It's two disc full of solo after solo lol

Prince should release something similar.
