Jill Jones' Slept On Debut

As a Prince fan since the beginning of his career, I've always been a fan of his productions and so-called protégés. Still, from the Paisley Park label years, the Jill Jones album is my favorite. I don't understand why neither Warner Brothers, the critics and the general public didn't embrace it more. A few years back I wrote about Jill's brilliant disc for Soulhead.com and loved revisiting that brilliant disc. https://www.soulhead.com/...a-gonzales

Simple, i think..

The reason was Prince and his fast flowing ideas and bizarre changes imho.

He had barely patiences, and was already on the next project before one came out.

And, ask Alan Leeds, who was the fisrt in charge of that label.

I remember him talking about that in some podcast.

Maybe here :
