Beginnings of Rain, one of his most important concerts and best bootlegs.

.

Going to play it tonight in tribute. So many great songs and versions - Purple Rain, A case of you, Delirious, Automatic and of course ELECTRIC INTERCOURSE. As great as all the Purple Rain tracks being unveiled that night - the scream during Electric Intercourse, can never ever be topped. It gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it.

.

That whole night was his, after that concert the world awaited for the whole Purple Rain phenomenon.
