20 Years, 5 Months, 2 weeks, 4 days. I finally Got Modernaire!

For over 20 years I tried to make my "alternative" Purple Rain album. We all wanted to include Sex Shooter, Jungle Love and The bird, and we all did!

But we were fooling ourselves! Not the film loop. Not the demo. Finally, I got the new Dez Double CD today.

I FINALLY GOT MODERNAIRE!

Tomorrow, The Purple Rain SOUNDTRACK gets played for the first time. 20 years is worth the wait.....

Thanks Dez!

What about a clean instrumental version of Possessed? I have been out of the loop. Did that finally come out on boot somewhere?

P.S. How is the rest of the album? I mean I am dying to hear the full version of Modernaire. But $50? Give us your honest opinon please.

Please let us in on where to find this jewel! It's not even listed in Possessed.

How is the rest of the album? Were the rest of the tracks recorded in 1984 or are they Dez's new stuff?

Go to dezdickerson.com


he's not listing it on the site

Go to - "Leave a message" and that will take you to the forums where Dez answers questions

The Ebay sale seemed to run out yesterday so either he's sold all 250 copies or he'll be relisting soon.

Yeah, it's been out for years. The boot you are most likely going to find it on is called "SoulSeek".

I just got my copy of the set yesterday....only on disc 1 thus far but I am diggin it. And it is a great feeling to hear Modernaire in it's entirety.
Although he didn't include it....dez said that he found an extended version of Modernaire during his search through tapes as well. Hopefull we'll see that one at some point. It was worth the $50.00....and I can hear how he influenced Prince as well. Some of his guitar playing has a Prince vibe.

If you don't have it...go get it before it's gone. lol

The double CD is great, even if it is a little dated. Its worth it alone for the originals of Modernaire and After Hi School. The original Bite The Beat never made it on there (next CD dez?).

The sound is typical 80's rock, but some great vocal styles from Dez and the "prince" sounding guitar all over it!

I love the second half of Modernaire. A lot more guitar.

I took a long drive today, listening to my new Purple Rain CD!

1. Lets Go Crazy (Extended Version)
2. Jungle Love
3. Take Me With U
4. God (instrumental)
5. Modernaire
6. The Beautful Ones
7. Computer Blue
8. Darling Nikki
9. When Doves Cry
10. Sex Shooter (Extended Version)
11. When Doves Cry
12. The Bird
13. Purple Rain
14. I Would Die 4 U
15. Baby I'm a star
16. Possessed

Oh man, that new PR tracklist looks hot! I may have to fork over the $50 and buy the Dez CDs. I'm sure there will be other songs I like on it.

I like your soundtrack listing however it remains incomplete sad

What about Fathers Song?

What about that funky tune that DR. Fink and the drummer are rehersing? Or is that part of computer blue or another Prince tune? It goes something like this. ditta ditta dit dit da, waa waa waa waa waa wah wah (or something like that)

There is also another song in the background during the Lake Minnetonka scene (nice cool sexy instrumental).

And lets not forget the song that is playing backwards when they are in Prince's basement.

Some of these you may consider background songs, but they are just as in the background as GOD (love theme) and Possessed.

Hopefully you won't be posting 20 years from now you finally have those too!

I could go for a whole song of that rehearsal. That was too damn funky!

And lets not forget the song that is playing backwards when they are in Prince's basement.


I'd love to have one of that too.

Dez has released a retrospective CD set dated 1982-1987 which has one prince-related track on it.
