Also remember PrinceVault doesn't have 100% answers on everything.


I've updated them on stuff like Chocolate also have Jill Jones on background vocals as well as per Lisa Coleman Prince having Lisa & Jill come in to do additional vocal work on Baby I'm A Star

and some other things.

.

Except OP didn't even bother to research first. Couldn't even be arsed to check some of this stuff out on Princevault and then perhaps start a thread on "PV sayx X, but I can hear Prince's voice on track Y, so is PV incomplete?"

.

Instead it's the old "spoonfeed me this easily retrievable information!"

& many on here are happy to answer. In effect you are saying that anyone not as hard core as us has no buisness using Prince.org a 1st port of call. Instead you want them to to use google / P.Vault etc & NOT engage with the Prince community on here. WTAF! Is this why your website folded?

It's six of one, have a dozen of the other. No?

Of course it's appreciated when someone is excited about a topic such as this and comes here to start a discussion on it.

Maybe it would just be better when one has questions and knows where to get the answers, that they spend a little time to do the research themselves (which should actually be FUN if one is truly curious), then come back here and talk about what they learned and maybe ask questions they couldn't find the answer to in their research.

Wouldn't that be a more engaging and participative way to conduct discussions on such topics?

Just sayin... maybe both points are valid? wink cool

We were HERE, where were you?

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

These songs were released THIRTY YEARS AGO. Any sensible person would know that there's likely plenty of info out there. Hell, back in my day you couldn't just fucking Google anything, you needed to read books, books which were often not available in libraries so you needed to invest money. Or fanmags, which were even harder to obtain and even more expensive.

.

Is reading the EASILY AVAILABLE information that much trouble? Is this thread unearthing anything that hasn't been known for decades?

.

Why is urging people to do A LITTLE BIT OF EFFORT such a bother to so many of you?

YES!!! Because back in our day we had to walk to school uphill both damn ways while carrying wood that we would use to heat the damn one-room school house. Then, after that and before this damn internet, we’d have to meet strange people in back allies for purple information. So, to hell with these damn millennials and their nerve to ask people like us who slaved away to hoard...err...I mean collect this data to wield over the heads of the ignorant people who are clearly undeserving of da funk. The next thing we kno' they’ll be asking to ride our motorcycle or, even worse, asking us to burn them a copy of that time that Prince was on stage with James Brown and Michael Jackson. When will it stop, people, when will it stop?!?
