"Can You Help Me" is one of Jesse's finest jams....mid-80s Minneapolis funk at its best!

never saw that cover.. I had the other one (check discogs). Jesse's stuff was generally hard to find in the Netherlands.

yeah I remember that time piece also.. I thought that was a small nod from Jesse to that group he had been in for about 3 years..

.

in other photo details - looks like Jesse had JUST the right amount of curl activator. looks nice & "dry"......

I'll see you tonight..

The guy to the right(wearing the same/similar suit Jesse is wearing) was one of Prince's designers fro the PR era

Prince 'Purple Rain' Costume Designer Louis Wells(RIP), 61,

The designer continued working for a time after being diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer despite never smoking.

By Rosemary Feitelberg on August 8, 2018

ah, that explains. My browser (that has some ad-blocks and other stuff enabled) just doesn't show all images on this forum. To the point that I can't always see that there was an image to begin with. confused
