That whole set is fantastic. It's one of my most treasured bootlegs. Anyone who doubts that Prince is a musical genius just needs to listen to those shows!

Agreed. The definitive version of the song, IMO.

I have read on the org many, many times that these Montreux performances were among Prince's top few. I finally witnessed what the fuss was about. Empty Room is indeed awesome. Even after all of the accolades I've read about these Montreux performances, I wasn't prepared for the really decent quality, clarity, and closeness to the action in these videos. Incredible - a real showcase and a real treat.

I was fortunate to hear him play it at the first London ONA show. I think he then went straight into All the Critics after that. Awsome.

It is worth hoping for. You will shit twice and die.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Y'all do know that when I finally get to hear this live, I'll have a little chuckle - after that I'll shit twice & die. The org said it, it must be true biggrin

Can't believe you picked this one out of the air! I was there and it's my favorite song of both shows because PRINCE WAS LOOKING RIGHT AT ME DURING THE GUITAR SOLO!!!
