Everybody here, I would say. How can you like Prince and not like Dirty Mind & Controversy?
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

It's definitely my favorite era for looks/style: That scruffier, thrown-together, rough-around-the-edges look, with the spiky shaggy hair -- just the most "rock and roll" by my measure.

Forshure I am. And I remember it all vividly.

Well, maybe not so vivid since I am older now.

Hardly an era. He wore that badge for about 3 concerts. Move along.

I think this 'era' is a lot wider than assumed. Even during the 1999 period people in the camp including bodyguards and techs were wearing Rude Boy tshirts

I would say the attitude extended into the Purple Rain period

I feel this was his best era. It was raw, sometimes vulgar, in your face, and foreward thinking. The Time and Vanity 6 added to this musical word he was building. I was a little kid listening to my older brothers Parliament Funkadelic, Bootsy, and Ohio Players albums, but Prince was the first artist that felt like he was from my generation even though I was only 10 years when Dirty Mind came out. I can't believe I was listening to Dirty Mind at 10. LOL.

I remember my brother brought home the Dirty Mind album and I thought "who is this on the cover?" Is that a girl or a guy. Why is he wearing underwear and heels? Is that that Sylvester dude? All those questions sudsided, when I heard the first track and I said yes. Yes. Wherever this dude is going, I'm listening. It sounded raw, dangerous, young, and unpredictable. Man, what I would give just to go back to that time for one day just to experience again.

Wow, who would have guessed that Chick and Dez shared the same shirt and shirt size, lol (spandex cannot be underestimated)

One of the best Prince eras.Prince was so bold and so raw....with an unapologetic ‘I-don’t-give-a-fuck’ attitude.It was great!! smile
