I really like it, always have. Don't think it will ever get released but we have it pristine quality anyway. smile

This.

Single release, promoted. Simple video with Prince solo in a black room, nothing else. People would shit their pants for this.

Great unreleased track that would have been a gem on D&P. Culd easily have been released as a single instead of MDMT or Insatiable. Great beat, simple composition and wonderful lyrics you can not only enjoy singng along with, but relate to.

It's ok, but for some really strange reason it reminds me of "There is Lonely". I don't know why because they're not really the same type of song.


I assume Prince was probably faded or doped up on some kind of drugs--perhaps Meth or Cocaine during that period of time. It's well known that he had financial problems then, so I would imagine his drug problems were very expensive. Great songs came from that time though.

I had no idea some people consider this some sort of a bootleg classic. It's rarely popped up in conversations.

Slip a slow, punchy, treble heavy bass guitar solo in the breakdown section and slap it on some vinyl....make it a vinyl only release. Turn technology on itselfand make it hard to steal that way.

No. Leave it as is. The stark demo vibe makes it so much more real and immediate. If he starts tinkering with it he could suck all the soul out of it.

It's not a stark demo vibe...the suing just plain ain't done. There's a missing solo and likely some other parts. It sounds like he fell asleep/crashed before it was done.

C'mon! You know he'd add a rap or something and ruin it.

He very well might ruin it. But he wont add a rap....i mean, c'mon. Spending more time on as ong does not guarante . That he'll ruin it. He fiddledbaround with Screwdriver and the remix is MUCH better than the video version. He spent some much needed time on "The Dance," a very much unfinished song during the NPGMC days, and came out of it with a masterpiece.

Days Of wild was defiantly altered after conception. Lets work was changed. Old Friends for sale...Elephants and Flowers...all of these were changed and update. ..none r terrible. Itbgoes both ways. If he goes ahead and augments I Wonder....and screws up i wonder 2.0....u still have an unaltered I wonder 1.0...for people wjo like 2.0 and 1.0...win/win...if u dont like 2.0...no arm no foul. So why does it matter if he fiddles with it.

U still have extralovable 1.0, dont you?
