Open Book appreciation

great song, shame he didnt keep it for himself, kinda reminds me of "Angie" by the Rolling Stones.

What do you mean by 'shame he didn't keep it for himself'?

Great song by the way ... Reminds me of when I first met my wife ... love struck

Peace ... & Stay Funky ...

This song wouldn't sound right on Diamonds and Pearls.

Love it. One of my favorite outtakes.

Is this really D&P era? Def. wouldn't sound right on that album. I always got a 89/90 vibe from it. The overall sound would sort of fit on Batman.

Great song. Both Prince's and Jevetta Steele's version are both beautiful! Can't really see it on an album but maybe as a b-side during Daimonds & Pearls period.

When eye go 2 a Prince concert or related event it's all heart up in the house but when eye log onto this site and the miasma of bitchiness is completely overwhelming!

One of my favorites as well. Love this song. Just regret that a cd quality version will likely never be released.

stunning song. perhaps my all time favorite of his. one of the few times it feels like Prince is actually expressing a relatable genuine human emotion in one of his songs, instead of play-acting through songwriting.

Love Prince's version of Open Book. Top 5 of my all time Prince favourites. So much emotions in that song..
