Prince's Family

So I guess a lot of you must have put together the Prince versions of the family songs on a playlist. How are people configuring their songs.

I went for out takes only

High Fashion
Mutiny
The Screams of Passion
Nothing compares 2 U
Feline
Paisley Park instrumental
Desire.

It's a great listen.

I used the configuration of the original album but replaced River Run Dry with Feline. I am listening to it compulsively, I absolutely love it.

There is a remix of "High Fashion" that's funky as hell. It starts with "HIGH FASHION" chant and has samples of Eric's sax solo at the 3:11 mark on Prince's version. It slowly gets into the song. St. Paul & Eric were live streaming on uStream or Livestream years ago during fDeluxe's album making process. He played it. It was so fucking cool, and I don't know why that was never put on the 12" singles that came out. I think recorded the live stream audio and have that somewhere. It has Paul & Eric talking over it, but I have it. I'd have to check the files on my cloud to see if it's still there. But shit - that remix was funkier than a sack of granddaddies.


Edit: Found it! It's about 6:32. Near the end of the track it's a funky bass section. You can hear St. Paul say "I learned all my bass playing from this...seriously."

I'd agree. "Miss Understood" and "Feline" both could go on this, and should have. "Yes" and "Susannah's Pajamas" were just instrumentals, and I feel a bit cheated in that we don't have another sing along song. Those two should have been used in UTCM somewhere if needed instead of rehashing "New Position" or "I Wonder U".
