Like others, i got really fond memories of Prince's late 70's period.


One of the the things that stands out the most, about that period, is how "mysterious" Prince was back then. Now its like we basically got the whole story, but back then, Prince was this relatively unknown, unique, fascinating guy, that(i'm looking for the right words)? Well he just blew a lot of people's friggin socks off!



As i kinda alluded to before. Everything about prince was mysterious. From the way he looked, the imagery on his albums, the way he talked, the somewhat vague, album-liner notes, etc. It was all a trip. I remember reading the album liners and wondering, Who is C Moon? Who is Bobby Z ? What's Controversy Music(later) ? Does Prince really Produce, Arrange, Compose and Perform all his music ??? Man, we really tripped the f*ck out on that one.




As far as Photos, Media and whatnot. In my mind, the one journalist, and magazine, that was responsible for exposing people to Prince(early on), was Cynthia Horner, and Right On magazine. I can't speak for every part of the US(and elsewhere)but pretty much up until the time that the fire it up tour was in full swing, prince hadn't received a lot of publicity. So like i said. Cynthia deserves a lot of credit.



Anyway those are some of my memories about early Prince. I'm grateful that i got into him when i did. It left me with some good memories.



Thanks for the post's, and the pictures!!

"Cynthia Horner"

i wonder what ever happened to her...Right On magazine deserves alot of credit for giving Prince ALOT of press very early in his career...seems like she knew he was gonna be an Icon before anyone else on a national level...i can vaguely remember an article in Right On where Prince allegedly told her that he was trying to mate his cat with his dog...then years later the song "LaLaLa HeHeHe" came out, and the lyrics matched her story....i never forgot that

Just As Long As We're Together

Released November 21, 1978
Recorded October-December 1977

.

The song consists of two verses and multiple repeats of the chorus before a coda at the end. The coda is actually an instrumental track originally called "Jelly Jam" that was added to "Just as Long as We're Together", and modified over time to blend into the main track. Andre Cymone co-leads on this song.

You can live your own life and I'll live mine
I will never try to keep you down
And even if I only see you some of the time
I'm just happy when you come around
And even if the sun don't shine
I'm warm enough when you're in these arms of mine
Just as long as we're together
Everything's alright (everything's alright)
Everything's alright (everything's alright)

There is nothing that will overcome the love we share,
Nothing that will break us apart
Girl I gotta always have you in my ear,
Gotta always have you in my heart
Oh baby, your place or mine?
I'll get the music, baby, you bring the wine

Just as long as we're together (just as long as we're together)
Oh girl, there's nothin' better (just as long as we're together)
Just as long as we're together
Everything's alright (everything's alright)
Everything's alright (everything's alright)

Just as long as there is you
I'll be around doin' what you what me to
Just as long as there is me
I'll be around to sing that melody, sugar
Just as long as we're together (everything's alright)
Oh baby, everything's alright
Just as long as we're together (everything's alright)
Oh girl, everything's alright
Just as long as we're together (everything's alright)
Oh girl, everything's alright!
Don't you know there ain't better (everything's alright)
Oh hunt you baby, in the night

So Blue

B-side:SO BLUE

So Blue is the eighth track on the album For You, and, two months after the album's release, the track was included as the b-side of the album's first single Soft And Wet, the album's first single (and the first single release of Prince's career).

Recording dates for the song itself are not known, but the album was recorded at the Record Plant, Sausalito, CA, USA, from 1 October 1977 to 22 December 1977, before overdubs and mixing took place, in early January 1978 at Sound Labs, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

-PrinceVault

I had everything I needed
But now my life is so blue
You meant the world to me
But now you're gone and I'm so blue

Even though the sun is shining
I spend my day, I spend my day crying over you
Oh yeah, I spend my day crying over you
I feel just like the sky, oh, so blue

Oh baby, don't you know?
Baby don't you know?
I spend my nights, it's all alone
Talking to myself, I am so blue

And everyday the feeling gets stronger
And who's to say, just how much longer
I can spend my nights all alone

Talking to myself and just crying over you
I guess I'll just spend my life
So, so blue

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.

I wonder did that morph into?

If You Feel Like Dancin'
.
Do You Feel Like Dancing? is an unreleased track performed live, and perhaps recorded, in 1973 by Grand Central, a band consisting of Prince, André Anderson and Charles Smith, as one of the few original compositions known to be played by the band at the time, along with Danger Lover, Funk It Up and Sex Machine (they mostly played cover versions of current hits). It is not known who in the group wrote the track, or if it was a collaborative effort, but it is certainly possible that this is Prince's earliest known composition. It is not known if the track was later considered for inclusion on any project.

Don't You Wanna Ride?
This song exists as a simple demo recorded in 1976 by Prince on a tape recorder or a 4-track recorder. It is a lively, funky number created around an acoustic guitar riff. Prince sings in a double-tracked falsetto voice accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. Interestingly, his normal voice can also be heard in places. Prince refers to himself as "the golden lover" and he goes on to describe an encounter with "a foxy lady down in New Orleans" using sailing as a metaphor for their lovemaking.

Don't You Wanna Ride

1 2 3…

Met a foxy lady down in New Orleans
Finest little woman that I ever did see
When I asked her, "Baby, what do U do 4 fun?"
She said "U look young enough 2 be my son"

And I kept on singing…
Yeah, yeah… {scatting}

She made me feel real bad but I did not buy
I just came right on out with this funky reply
I said, "I may be young, but would U rather me be old?
My money is still green and my love is made of gold"

Yeah, yeah… {scatting}

She said, "Come on little daddy, come on, go with me
I wanna see your golden love.
Don't worry about the money, I wanna find out
Just what U're made of"

{scatting}

Went 2 her apartment way across town
Sure was a long way 2 go, just 2 get down
My hands began to tremble as we got inside
She looked at me and smiled and said:

So U wanna ride? {x4}

She took me by the hand and led me 2 her boat
We flipped a coin 2 see who would stroke
Heads, I won, so I took the oar
Then I rowed and rowed until she couldn't stand it no more

And I kept on singing¦ (Kept on singing) (Right on singing)
Yeah, yeah… {scatting}

When we got through sailing, couldn't sail no more
She said, "I never been loved like this before"
If anybody asks U who destroyed all your pride
Tell 'em, "The golden lover did, yes he did
And he sure knows how 2 ride, said knows how 2 ride"
Ride, knows how 2 ride

Ride {repeated}
Your sailing days are over
I done cleaned up this town
I done blown your cover
Don't mess with the golden lover

Don't U want 2 ride with me baby?
Don't U want 2 ride?
Don't U want 2 ride with me baby?
Don't U want 2 ride?

Don't You Wanna Ride

1 2 3…

Met a foxy lady down in New Orleans

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.
Chicago Public Radio:Sound Opinions 2009


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

Prince was credited for all vocals, songwriting, every instrument played on the album, as well as the whole arrangements and production. The only credit given to someone other than Prince is a co-writing credit to Chris Moon for the lyrics of Soft And Wet. Moon and Prince disagreed over credits due on My Love Is Forever, which was financially settled after the album release.

It's kind of funny seeing him pose with all of these people. I guess because he was up and coming it was the "promotional" thing to do. They must have been publicists, DJ's, music exec's and such. He looked like he didn't even want to be there in most of those shots (lol).

I know, he generally looks agitated

But the Prince years he looks more comfortable
