Listen to the bass jamming towards the end of the song! Now that's funky. Prince needs to play this live more often.

I've always dug this song (and the whole 1st LP too). I love the live version that he did from the Conga Room also.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Bobby Z play drums on this (uncredited)? I could have sworn I read that on the org sometime ago.

Interesting, I thought the same thing too and thought the Bass was Andre Cymone, but I may be blowing smoke there...

Tried many flavours - but sooner or later, always go back to the Purple Kool-aid!

I'm Yours is all Prince on all instruments. Prince was highly skilled way back then at an early age. The man is just a pure musical freak!

..well we all know he's always been a skilled musical freak. But according to Andre he sometimes didn't give credit where it was due on the first two records. Regardless I still love the song.

What's up DreZone? Your musical skills are great too..(and I'm not blowin' smoke) wink

I don't think it's a stretch to think that Dre & Z contributed to "I'm Yours". Prince first recorded the song in '76 and the album was recorded between October & December of '77. The Loring Park sessions were sometime in '77 and Prince, Dre and Z sound pretty tight as if they've been playing together for a while (and presumably with some purpose in mind). Of course we'll never know for sure if the Heaven Sent Helpers are on those first two albums, but I personally think so...
