Prince - Let's Work 12" Single

just picked up a flawless copy of the classic LET'S WORK 12" inch single...

.

featuring the A1 Let's Work (Dance Remix, Long Version)

.

and the classic B-Side Gotta Stop (Messin' About) which in my opinion is very underrated

.

I think this might be Prince's best 12-inch... it was so perfect. I love everything about it. The Let's Work extended version is such a total freak jam, with those brilliant little snippets of "Annie Christian" and "Controversy" slipped in. it's such an incredible jam! prince was on fire during this period. controversy is his most underrated album other than lovesexy. this is a timeless jam.

.

i think the b-side was from the dirty mind era, but it still sounds fantastic with its sharp, snappy analogue synths and catchy melody.. this was the beginning of prince's most fruitful period.

.

anyway, i took some pics!

.

.

.

i've been listening to this on repeat all day... what a funky hymn! music

The one song that my younger brother (who has autism) jumps up and down singing loudly. No other song has this kind of effect on him. My dream one day, is to take my brother to a Prince concert for he can experience this live.

I love that this line sneaked its way into the Ultimate Prince set. Maybe Prince forgot it was there? I'd imagine he would have omitted the song or had the line censored.

Yah, that is odd. Princey tryna be a pimp and shit nuts. Love that shit. Ultimate Prince is the first place i ever heard the 12" inch version, btw. I wasn't alive when it was initially released. The artwork is very cool. geek Gotta Stop is also my jam.

Listen to who? Let's get what?
