Question - Can't Stop This feeling/we can funk/databank

NO TROLL THREADS! NO SOLICITING FOR BOOTLEGS! Discussion is fine, so long as the bootleg is not being promoted e.g. pre-release; requests/offers to share or copy, and links to download or bootleg sites are not. Posting Prince and associated artist videos from sites such as YouTube is also not allowed. Posts of this nature will be deleted and repeat offenders will be first warned, and then banned. Troll threads, fake tracklists, and attention seeking rumor threads will be also be swiftly dealt with. These rules are strictly enforced! --- luv4u

Hi Orgers

Just wanted to see if anyone had some more information on the recent BFTP release of:

Girl O' My Dreams

Can't Stop This Feeling I Got

We Can Funk

Databank

I read that the tracks were recorded in sequence, and I remember the tremendous Box O Chocolates bootleg that had them in pristine quality. This was the first time i'd heard them in the sequence i'd read about

Wondered if anyone knows if the BFTP ones are the same sessions in different fidelity/mixes, of if its entirely different takes for the tracks. Heard on the bus this morning (taking a while to get through both volumes!) and they sounded different, at least to these ears

Actually, I have a version of the 86 We Can Funk and Databank that is far superior to what is on BOC and BFTP.

What's wrong with my question? If the versions mentioned above aren't in circulation, then the post adds nothing to the topic.

So as far i understand there is three different takes:

1) the BFTP session in sequence

2) the BOC takes in sequence again

3) other versions recorded in 86, possibly in sequence?

just thought it would be strange if he recorded these songs all in sequence three seperate times smile

PrinceVault says for Data Bank (one of my faves) there was an 86 version, and then another with overdubs... so assuming this is the BFTP and BOC versions, and the subtle differences are some different takes/mixes. also indicates there is an 89' version too which I assume is the rerecording for The Time album.

Sorry if im being a clutz - i love finding out all this kinda stuff. Its like a rabbit hole where you think you have it sussed then all of a sudden something else leaks/gets released and you find yourself wanting to know even more.

Don't know exactly if joyinrepetiton and me are talkin' of the same, but regarding We Can Funk '86 the version included in "H20" is really better sounding that any version leaked or released after.

Unfortunately it starts abruptly in the middle of the segue between it and CSTFIG, but this apart it is a near pristine sound quality.
