Pittsburgh 1981 SBD has leaked

Pittsburgh 1981-11-20 SBD has leaked ahead of EYE's upcoming release. Apparently it's from a fan and not a rip from EYE's bootleg. music


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.

Thanks for the heads up…crazy to think what drama must go on for a fan to be willing and able to undercut a bootleg release. Can't wait to check this out.

I was really keeping my fingers crossed for a pristine version of "The Second Coming" mad

Excellent show, though!

Several have disappeared, but, that is because of the rule that we can't talk about bootlegs that have not been released yet. So, nobody should talk about details on that not-yet-released boot. Let's just talk about this specific leak and we should be fine. wink

I don't know the details about the drama beyond what we've all seen in metadata, but, to whomever leaked this: Thank You Very Much!!! cool

This is great!!

I love Annie Christian to death - but man does it not work live, at least in 1981. Brings the whole vibe down. If he had other "weird" songs like it at the time, maybe it would work... but not after "Head"!

Has anyone in this thread used those words side by side to describe this?

The "quality" is indeed pretty great, though!

Damn, wouldnt be surprised if it turns out stuff like 1980 demo for Little Red Corvette or a 1981 soundcheck of A Case of u actually exist

And I kind of like this soundcheck more than the studio versiom, rawer and it hits you with more guitar
until then i'll pretend this fuchsia light is god...

The rehearsal version of I Would Die 4 U is really interesting. Is that Prince trying to solo over the end?

no yesterday or tomorrow, no better remedy for sorrow

it's so nice and interesting to hear these early versions or sketches of songs. love

i'm going to blaspheme here, so hold on to ur panties children, but i've never liked the
extended version of I Would Die 4 U. neutral

the album version: one of my favorite prince songs though cool but that extended is
just so boring and it hasn't got that magic feel of the album version. i never got the
fascination people have for that extended version. same with la la la he he hee. it's
the only two extended versions of songs that i don't really like.

anyway smile moving on. or back. this rehearsal for I Would Die 4 U is fascinating love
i'll have to check back to the Questlove dj clips from a while back where he played a
bunch of outtakes but there were 2 bits of I Would Die 4 U in there and one sounded
a bit like a souped up version of this rehearsal. so could there be a demo of it that's
closer to this rehearsal? omfg eek

seriously: dead

u can find a few versions of that song with Prince playing Santana like guitrar solo.

he played guitar on I Would Die 4 U live first ave 1983

i think his original intention was to play guitar on that one

Quietly cosign here…never been a huge fan of the extended version of I Would Die 4 U. The album version though…amazing.

So cool to still have so much to find out and hear from an amazing artist. We are truly lucky.

Anyone wonder why Sexuality, the first track, is named

02. Sexuality

There is no track name that starts with “01”.

Hmmm, the copy I downloaded has Sexuality as #01 through Partyup as #13.

I'm assuming on your copy Partyup is #14?
