David Ruffin's Sexy Dancer vs Prince's

Both were released in 1979 actually. David's isn't half bad, hell it's great.

PRINCE: Always and Forever
MICHAEL JACKSON: Always and Forever

Love me some DR. Same title but two different deliveries and styles. Ruffin's version is more hard hitting Disco while Prince's is str8 up funk.

Prince version is a certified Hall Of Fame level, classic funk joint by a young hungry genius...the David Ruffin version is an obscure, fogotten effort, by a washed up dope fiend...

No comparison, but this is pretty nice.

The best song off that album is "I Get Excited" IMO
