New Leak :Billy

Its out there. The 1983 version of billy. This version clocks in at 11:31 seconds. It also sounds more like a blues jam.

Yes - completely different vibe than the guitar one we've known for all these years. Similar "feeling" to the 6/7/84 version of "Something in the Water". This is awesome!! So many treasures...

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

I know the adds for PU3&6 say they were released yesterday, but, afaik, nobody has them yet. Discussing them ahead of circulation could potentially get this thread removed. Just sayin'... wink

A Love Bizarre.... 2x rehearsal is nice... funny with mistakes and Prince calling them out and giving directions.



now America... some sound issues with the vocals but it is a jam but to my ear on one listen very much the same arraignment as the video.

As in:

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.

I believe so yes. I haven't heard it either but BB King has a song of that name and I don't know what else it would be.

I can't put my finger on it, but Prince played How Blue Can You Get at one of his Paisley Park shows, I guess it was in 1995. It was called "Volkswagen Blues" on the bootleg it came out on later.

The punchline of the song (as recorded by B.B. King) is:

"I gave you a brand new Ford,

You said: I want a Cadillac!

I bought you a ten dollar dinner

You said: Thanks for the snack!

I let you live in my penthouse

Lord you called it a shack!

I gave you seven children

Now you wanna give them back."

Prince changed the Ford to a Volkswagen - hence the (wrong) title.

Rasberry Beret and Controversy/My Summertime Thang are from the same soundcheck. IDK what the recording date is, though. Anyone? Is there any mention of it in Duane's book?

Wow. I've heard a couple of rehearsal leaks of this and the talent of the musicians astounds me. So much of Prince's work defies the usual chord progressions. He's literally having to call, and they respond and memorise. I can't imagine having to be so utterly switched on and responsive for hours and hours of rehearsal and performance. I guess that's why they were so tight.
I'm looking out for a purple dolphin.
