Didn't some of the NPGQ tracks end up on Phase 2? I could swear Big City was going to be in it...

isn't NPGQ yet another project? i think Big City was supposed to be on an NPG album,
but NPGQ seems to have been some instrumental jazz thing, no?

Reality...we fans think in albums and eras....in the studio it always much more fluid and didn't become a 'thing' until it nailed on as a release.

And it got shelved because Prince was upset that Blackwell got sick of waiting and went on tour with D'Angelo.

In a Dr Funkenberry podcast with Adrian Cruthfield they said Black Is The New Black was more like an EP of 6/7 songs, incl Ruff Enuff, that he was going to put on Tidal.

.

IIRC Revelation came from the NPGQ sessions but at the AOA/PE release party it was instrumental stuff they were playing.

No, Black is the new Black is a album not a ep They knew of 8 tracks that was completed. They said prince might have done more tracks himself.The ep was separate
