Other Side of the Pillow (covered by Maceo Parker)

Prince's "Other Side of the Pillow" Reimagined By Funk Legend Maceo Parker

Funk legend Maceo Parker has just released a new take on "Other Side Of The Pillow" by Prince, whom he collaborated with for a decade after his work with James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, and George Clinton. Originally recorded at Paisley Park for Prince's 21st LP, 'The Truth,' the song is featured on 'Soul Food - Cooking with Maceo,' Parker's first studio album in eight years, out next Friday, June 26th.

.

"I am really pleased to be including a Prince song on this album," Parker said. "I recorded this song back in 2002 with Prince but we never got to finish it. We recorded it again freshly in New Orleans for the new album and it pays tribute to two geniuses, Prince and Ray Charles. Also two very important people to me. I hope you enjoy it."

"More than anything I miss Prince," Parker continued. "He was a genius, so it was special to re-record a song he and I had once toyed with idea of releasing and give it that special New Orleans feel while also referencing the person I most admired growing up, the Genius Mr Ray Charles."
