It is no secret that this is arguably the most essential bootleg
recording in circulation for Prince fans. It is first and
foremost on my personal list of favorites. Even though there are
now a plethora of soundboard recordings available from nearly
every tour, this is a perfect recording of a coveted aftershow.

The sound quality is to my ears identical to the original release
of Small Club 2nd Show That Night by X records in 1989. This is
the first time I've said this about any reissue of this show.
Although many have tried before this is the first Small Club
recording to actually match the original in sound quality. There
have been no less than a couple dozen of reissues over the past 6
years. In a blind test with both sources playing simultaneously I
could not tell them apart. If there is a difference in sound it
is discernible to me.


The show itself is a true aftershow classic, with everything we
could ask for in a performance: killer guitar solos (Rave Unto
the Joy Fantastic & Just My Imagination), great vocals (Still
Would Stand All Time), lots of Boni Boyer, and a couple of
unreleased songs (People Without, etc..). This is Prince at his
physical and performing prime. Looking back I would have to say
that 1987-88 featured him at his best more consistently that any
other time of his career. His aftershows during this time period
are just legendary including the incredible Camden Palace show in
London on July 25th, the Hamburg show in late August and one of
the first, the Quasimodo gig on the Sign O the Times tour. Never
has his ferocity been so evident at shows such as these.

google is your friend... cool

I have the original X Records version of this on pressed cd, and the Sabotage "Trojan Horse" and I cannot tell the difference in sound quality.

I adore this show, I always wonder what it would have been like had Eric Leeds dedided to join them that night (apparently he decided to stay at the hotel). However, who cares, because this is one of the best shows from that period imo.

People often ask me what is so special about this particular gig, what can one say? For me it is a mix of fantastic sound quality, great setlist, and outstanding musicians.

If you only have to have one aftershow from the Lovesexy tour, then this has to be it.

Princes guitar work on Just My Imagination still gives me a shiver, but in a good way.

Awesome.

Yeah I remember some info about tha a few years ago. He went to the hotel or what? He was sick? I forgot.

Nervermind: I read he wasnt feeling well or was "knackered"

I know that Just My Imagination is the highlight on this but what is underrated to me is the guitar drivien Rave...so energetic. Fake stops and also a badass guitar extended solo. They worked it on that one too! Whoo-boy.

It's probably best if we do not think too much about Eric not being there, no point in torturing ourselves. lol

Not that it matters, but that cover is hilarious. A shitty picture of Prince, with some ancient fonts. hehe. Classic bootleg. At least Sabotage put a little effort into their cover!

Is this the worst bootleg cover ever or have you seen worse?

There are a handful of really great Lovesexy aftershows that I like.

There is the L.A Palace show, which eventually appeared in better quality, I think that was a new source for that one and not a tweak.

Then there are the two versions of the same show from 4DaFunk, "Take The W Train" and "Take The Other W Train," same show, different sources.

Then the above mentioned Camden Palace show, oh how I have longed for that one in better quality.

However, they all pale in comparison to Small Club.

It is releases like this that make me glad that Prince does not release them himself.

Oh there is worse, much worse, and a lot more recent too.

Eye Records have some pretty bad covers, and for true horror, check out NPG Vandals and all that lot.

I like the space invader type font used in the "small club" part.

lol
