I haven’t been able to locate the lyric for What It Is (yet?), which makes me suspect that it was printed in 10.000 magazine which I don’t personally have. But I think it was about searching for one’s road and when it’s found, the road will follow you. Or something. confuse

But I did come across this here little ditty, handed out 9 September 1995 at Paisley Park:

Emancipation
Is it reality or just a dream?

2 your spirit eye say eye love U. In spite of my slavery
We’re both 2 blame 4 this lesson in life
Cuz this is the path we choose
eye ’m sure eye knew U long ago
Look in your soul – it knows
And eye would never claim more righteous
Dare Napoleon and Hitler see
It depends on who U ask my friend
eye love U, do U love me?

How will history sing, my brother
What song will our children teach?
The Emancipation Proclamation
Is well within our reach

Tear down the walls that make us bicker
4 many years eye fought your war
One stroke of your pen could conquer
Every sin our actions bore
eye implore the goodness that’s in all of us
An example we now must set
4 when this life is over
What U be is what U get

The Dawn is coming!
The Dawn is coming!
Acknowledge and save us all
Free my people 2 bring the message
Heed the call! Heed the call!

And this song from every mountain top
Every child will surely teach
The Emancipation Proclamation
Is well within our reach

eye love U, eye love U – do U love me?

- a poem to WB or a the lyric for a song? You decide. wink

The Continental magazine circa June 1996, in its review of C&D, states that following an interview for Spanish magazine 'El Pais' with Rosa Montero in 1994, Prince gave her a tape of two songs he said were his favourite at that moment. The tape contained Dolphin and Dinner with Delores.

I believe you have a tentative placing of Dinner with Delores as being recorded in early 1996 [the Miami sessions].


I just reread an english transcription of the actual interview, published in El Pais 23 October 1994. That was Dolphin and Gold Rosa Montero was allowed to listen to. So no Dinner With Delores at this date. smile

In Uptown #20 news section it states that following the US release of COME on 18 August 1994, the NPG shop in Minneapolis handed out the TGE: release date: NEVER! flyers.

I believe you have We March as completed in October 1994, which is after this flyer was handed out stating it as a track on TGE.


It is quite possible that We March was actually recorded earlier - even the second version of Dolphin, too. biggrin

Of course, "following the US release of COME on 18 August" [i]could[/b] have been in September. biggrin

I have placed We March under September-October (the "official" period of prince finishing The Gold Experience) because I'm unsure where else to put it. confused

I got the Gold Experience, "Release Date, Never!" leaflet from the Camden NPG shop in Feb 1995 if that is any help.

Is it just me, or does anyone think its highly unlikey P would ever stick a 19min rolling stones cover on an album?! He'd never waste that amount of space on a cover.

since we are talking about configurations, reworks, remixes, and such, ihave a serious question i haven't seen asked. before the beautiful experience ep came out, prince appeared on soul train. he did 4 songs, the most by any other guest. he did tmbgitw, now, acknowledge me, and love sign. my question? why did he not release that bad assed remix of tmbitw? it is somewhat similar 2 the mustang mix, but, dear god. did any1 else catch that? the music was more perverse than i was ready for. please tell me if it ever got released, because if not, i'll do it headbang any info other than mine is greatly appreciated.

Additional info:

Just to note that I received a flyer from Paisley Park, postmark dated 20 December 1993, stating that 3 new songs were being aired at PP.

These were

Come, EndorphinEmachine and Space.

I only add this to the melting pot to establish the running order of these 3 songs and establish the spelling of Endorphinemachine at this point [which surely means that it was a one-worded song from this point onwards].

Anyway, thought I'd mention this in case it hasn't been already.
