Gigolos Get Lonely Too - Female Background Vocals

Does anyone know who the female background vocalist at the end of 'Gigolos Get Lonely Too' is? Sounds like Brenda or Jill to me. You can hear it most clearly on the Prince 'Originals' version:

3:28 - "All my lovers need stimulation... (yes they do)"

3:49 - "(All... my.... lovers need stimulation)"

3:55 - "Honey babe... (Honey Babe)"

Prince: 1958-infinity. Thank U for everything.

Probably Jill.

Jill was on everything back then. She was a secret member of the Time, the Revolution, Vanity 6, etc., etc.,etc.

These are those times, when I say, why not get the Time guys to sing back up?

She was definitely the invisible weapon. The stuff Duane Tudahl uncovered showed her vocal prints everywhere, and I'm pretty sure the upcoming version of his book will be a continuation of her involvment in his music. Their music reportoire together brings to mind Darlene Love & Phil Spector, except Prince didn't attach somebody else' name on her voice.

That's interesting that Jill is credited with bv's on "I Gues It's All Over" - always loved that song and wondered whether Prince wrote it. I think I read he contributed guitar (acoustic) to it?

Yeah, Jill is on a number of songs on the Mazarati album. It's a beautiful song. The rhythmic elements to the solo sounds like something Prince would come up with, so it wouldn't be surprising, considering he also re-wrote the lyrics for the track, so was obviously involved in the songwriting process.
