Wendy Melvoin: I'll just go back quickly when I was 13 and my twin sister and I used to sneak out of the house and we used to go to a club in hollywood called the Starwood. I remember we were dancing I was 13 and we were pretending to be 16 17 still underage but u know... and I heard this song on the dancefloor Soft n Wet and I ran up 2 the dj at the time, I was like OMG who's that girl that your playing and he was like oh no thats not a girl that's just this kid from Minneapolis his name is Prince he's 19 bla bla bla and that's where it started 4 me.

Soft And Wet

Hey lover, I've got a sugarcane
That I wanna lose in U, baby can U stand the pain?
Hey lover, sugar don't U see?
There's so many things that U do 2 me... ooh baby!

(Hey lover) All I wanna see is the love in your eyes
And all I wanna hear is your sweet love sighs
(Hey lover) All I wanna feel is your burning flame
Tell me, tell me baby that U feel the same
Tell me that U feel the same way I do
Tell me that U love me girl

If this is lust, then I must confess I feel it everyday
If this is wrong, then I long 2 be as far from right as I may
Soft and wet, soft and wet

Soft and wet, soft and wet

Everytime I am with U, U just love me 2 death
Ooh wee baby, U leave me without breath ... oh baby
Ooh yeah

(Hey lover) U're just as soft as a lion tamed
And U're just as wet as the evening rain
(Hey lover) I really dig it when U call my name
Your love is driving me, U're driving me insane
Crazy baby, oh girl, crazy about your love

Soft and wet
U know U are soft and wet
4 sure girl, your love is soft and wet
Ooh, soft and wet

Still Waiting

All my friends tell me about the loves they've had
Can't they see what they're doing 2 me, it makes me feel so bad
Cuz I'm so alone and broken-hearted
It ain't like my life is ended, but more like it never started
The love my friends rap about I keep anticipating
I try so hard but don't U know my patience is fading away, away

Still waiting - I'm waiting 4 that love
Still waiting - I wish on every star above
Still waiting - Waiting 4 the love 2 come around ... oh love
Waiting 4 the love 2 come around

People say that I'm 2 young, 2 young 2 fall in love
But they don't know
They really don't know that's all that I've been dreamin' of
Cuz I spend my nights just-a-cryin'
And I spend my days just-a-tryin'
2 find that love 2 call my own
Cuz I'm sick and tired of bein' alone

Still waiting - Waiting 4 that love
Still waiting - I wish on every star above
Still waiting - I'm waiting 4 the love 2 come around ... oh
(Waiting 4 the love) Don't U know that I'm waiting
(Waiting 4 the love) Still
(Waiting 4 the love) 2 come around now
I need somebody 2 hold onto, baby

Waiting and waiting, don't U know that I'm..
Still waiting - I'm waiting 4 your love sugar
Still waiting - If U're out there girl, please come 2 me
Still waiting - Don't make me cry no more
Still waiting - If U're out there baby, please come 2 me
Still waiting - I'm wishing and wishing 4 days baby
Still waiting - If U're out there girl, please come 2 me
Still waiting {x2}

MOJO: Growin' up in Minne-wood, as it's been now called, simply because that is the hot point on this planet right now.

PRINCE: Well, it's been called a lot of things, but it's always Uptown to me.

MOJO: Uptown?

PRINCE: Yes.

MOJO: What was it like growin' up Uptown?

PRINCE: Pretty different. Uh, kinda sad, to be exact. (laughs) I mean, the radio was dead, the discos was dead, ladies was kinda dead, so I felt like, if we wanted to make some noise, and I wanted to turn anything out....I was gonna have to get somethin' together. Which is what we did. We put together a few bands and turned it into Uptown. That consisted of a lot of bike riding nude, but ya know...it worked. We had fun. That's why I wanted to come here on my birthday...'cuz I wanted to give them a little taste of where we live and get a little taste of where you all live. To me, this is like my second home. If I could spend the night at somebody's crib, I would...'cuz this hotel.... They're real nice to us, but, this bed is hard!ROLLING STONE, APRIL 26TH, 1985

Rolling Stone
-----

RECORDS

PRINCE
Warner Bros.

By Stephen Holden

Not only does Prince possess the most thrilling R&B falsetto since Smokey Robinson, but this nineteen-year-old. Minneapolis-bred Wunderkind is his own writer-producer and one-man band, playing synthesizer, guitar, drums and percussion. Whereas Prince's debut album (last year's For You) stressed his instrumental virtuosity, Prince teems with hooks that echo everyone from the Temptations to Jimi Hendrix to Todd Rundgren. But Smokey Robinson's classic Motown hits, in which the singer's falsetto signified his erotic thrall, are Prince's chief models.

The biggest difference between Robinson and Prince is the latter's blatant sexuality. Prince sings exclusively in falsetto. Instead of narrative ballads that trace the progress of relationships, Prince's songs are erotic declarations issued on the dance floor or in bed, virtually interchangeable arenas here. These compositions begin and end in sexual heat. The garish, synthesized textures of such tunes as "I Wanna Be Your Lover" and "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" don't so much imitate a band backing a singer as enclose his voice in a feverish calliope of the mind, underscoring the urgency of lyrics like "I wanna be the only one you come for," "Sexy dancer, when you rub my body/...it gets me so hot" and "I want to come inside of you." The simplicity of Prince's words, hooks and rhythms are pure pop. With a trace more sophistication, he could become a solo Bee Gees of the libido.

A soft melodic, acoustic demo from 1979, this song is about the wanting of woman that belongs to another man. It was recorded for possible inclusion on Prince's self-titled album of the same year.

No, James Tarver was a member of HQ. He posted the pics there and first asked kindly not to share without asking him. But because people didn't understand that request he put these type of texts on them or ridiculous big watermarks.
(And besides this great photographer, HQ had the most people who scanned their pics. Now that HQ is gone you hardly see any new scans biggrin )

Could that unknown female be Sue Ann Carwell?


I think it's André Cymone's girlfriend. I think this is her as well. Together with André and Prince in New York City, February 1980.

Edit: I've just been informed that the girl in the car is actually Cynthia Horner, at the time editorial director for teen magazine Right On!. I'm not sure she's also the girl in the New York photo.

Bambi

I knew from the start
That I loved U with all my heart
But U were untrue
U had another lover and she looked just like U

Bambi, can't U understand?
Bambi, it's better with a man

It's so hard 2 believe
Maybe it's because U're so young
Or maybe I'm just 2 naive
Who's 2 say, maybe U're really having fun

Bambi, can't U understand?
Bambi, it's better with a man ... ow!

All your lovers, they look just like U
But they can only do the things that U do
Come on baby and take me by the hand
I'm gonna show U what it's like 2 be loved by a man

Bambi, I know what U need
Bambi, maybe U need 2 bleed

Yeah!
