From 1980 - 1983 it seemed like almost everyone in the camp had a tshirt or button with it on it

I think U could get it through his New Breed Fan club back then

RASPBERRY BERET [1982]

The track was originally recorded in Prince's home studio, Kiowa Trail Home Studio, in Spring/Summer, 1982. Basic tracks for the album version were recorded in August, 1984 at Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA.

It's interesting that "Raspberry Beret" was recorded during the 1999 album sessions.I wonder if this early version (demo) sounds more like the other songs recorded during that period,as opposed to the way it sounds a few years later on ATWIAD.

I don't know why,but back in 1983,I never heard "Let's Pretend We're Married" on the radio at all.Kinda strange considering it was the follow-up single to "Delirious",which did extremely well.I also never saw the video until just a few years ago! I wonder if the song was perhaps too racy for Top 40 radio.

That would be interesting, Mia Bocca as well. What could these songs have sounded like in 1982...

But listening to the Family before and after songs like Feline Nothing Compares 2 U Screams of Passion Desire etc from a rock/PR era sound 2 the 'Parade' era sound opens a wide door to what they could sound like

B Side: Horny Toad
Released: 8.17.1983

Initial tracking took place on 9 May, 1982 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA

(seven days after Automatic).

The baby cooing sound effect used at the very end of "Delirious" is sampled from the 1966 Perrey and Kingsley song "Countdown at 6".

Delirious

I get delirious whenever U're near
Lose all self-control, baby, just can't steer
Wheels get locked in place
Get a stupid look on my face
When it comes 2 makin' a pass, pretty mama
I just can't win a race

Cuz I get delirious
Delirious
Delirious

I get delirious when U hold my hand
Body gets so weak I can hardly stand
My temperature's runnin' hot
Baby, U got 2 stop
Cuz if U don't I'm gonna explode
And girl I've got a lot

I get delirious, yeah
Delirious
Delirious

I get delirious whenever U're near
Girl, U gotta take control cuz I just can't steer
U're just 2 much 2 take
I can't stop, I ain't got no brakes
Girl, U gotta take me 4 a little ride up and down
In and out around your lake

I'm delirious
U, U, U get me delirious
Baby, lay me down
Delirious
The room, the room, the room is spinnin' around, oh yeah
(Delirious) {repeat in BG}
I..I..I..I'm deliri... oh yeah, oh I, oh I, yeah
Delirious, yeah
It's got me in repair, everybody look out
Everybody will know
Oh yeah, I'm delirious
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

(Delirious) {x5}

Alan Leeds: 20 ALBUMS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE


Please note the topic carefully. It does NOT say “20 best albums” or even “20 favorite albums”. Thus, my list is merely a reflection of my own journey. So before casting me aside for ignoring more recent music, recognize that my age affords me a long landscape. More importantly, understand that just about every album I have embraced in the past 20 years is somehow BECAUSE of those I’ve listed. If I were younger, my list would surely include Public Enemy, The Roots, D’Angelo, Ndegeocello, J Dilla and Erykah Badu – people whose records I listen to more regularly today than many on this list. It’s also noteworthy that 10 of these albums are “live” performances. That has something to do with discovering many of these albums in the lily white environment of my homestead. As a youngster, all I could do was close my eyes and conjure up images of what it would be like to be in the night club or at the concert – places I had no access to. It also speaks to a personal quirk - I like people more than I like “things”. My only affection for technology is to how it serves people. Thus even my favorite studio recordings basically serve to arouse my curiosity as to how the music would translate to the stage and a live audience. Since there’s no real way to quantify these records, I have listed them chronologically dating from the oldest.


1) HERE’S LITTLE RICHARD (1957)
2) SATCHMO THE GREAT – Louis Armstrong (1958)
3) COUNT BASIE AT BIRDLAND (1960)
4) RAY CHARLES IN PERSON (1960)
5) THELONIUS MONK’S GREATEST HITS (1962)
6) JAZZ WORKSHOP REVISITED – CANNONBALL ADDERLEY SEXTET (1962)
7) HERBIE MANN AT THE VILLAGE GATE (1962)
8) JAMES BROWN LIVE AT THE APOLLO VOL. 1 (1962)
9) DESCARGAS VOL. 3 – THE TICO ALL STARS AT THE VILLAGE GATE (1966)
10) COLD SWEAT – JAMES BROWN (1967)
11) ..74 MILES.. AWAY-WALK TALL – CANNONBALL ADDERLEY (1968)
12) SWEETNIGHTER – WEATHER REPORT (1972)
13) SENTIDO – EDDIE PALMIERI (1973)
14) AGHARTA – MILES DAVIS (1975)
15) PARLIAMENT LIVE – P-FUNK EARTH TOUR (1977)
16) FRESH FRUIT IN FOREIGN PLACES – KID CREOLE & THE COCONUTS (1981)

17) 1999 – PRINCE (1982) A confession – I was late coming to Prince. I thought he was just another falsetto slingin’ r&b dandy until a girl friend persuaded me to see the CONTROVERSY tour. Of course I was blown away – not just by his awesome skills as a singer-musician but for his stage show in which every production element was as musical as his band. 1999 became the album that convinced me that he was also a magician in the studio. The dance joints were bangin’ and what a lot of us came to refer to as his “boutique” songs were captivating. At a time when keyboard electronics were rapidly becoming cliché-ish, Prince proved how personable the new technology could become in the right hands.

18) DREAM OF THE BLUE TURTLES – STING (1985)
19) EYES OPEN – YOUSSOU N’DOUR (1992)
20) SHOKI SHOKI – FEMI KUTI (2000)

Still my favorite Prince album and the one that made me a fan. There's not a song on it I dislike except maybe for "Delirious".

OUTTAKE

Turn It Up is an unreleased song recorded on 20 January, 1982 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (the day after Wild And Loose, and eight days before resuming the Controversy Tour). The song was planned for inclusion on 1999, but was removed when Prince recorded Delirious, which Prince viewed as a similar track.

Turn it up, turn it up, baby
My signal's gettin' kinda weak
Turn it up, turn it up, baby
I know U got 2 be a freak, ooh
Turn it up, turn it up, baby
I'm still waiting by the knob

Turn it up, turn it up, baby
Work it 'til my clothes are wet
Turn it up, turn it up

CHORUS

Now turn it up!

Turn it up, turn it up, baby

Kiss me, kiss me! Yeah!

Turn it up, turn it up, baby

The funny thing for me was that this was my favorite jam for the longest time (Automatic a close second) - when I finally saw that there was a LPWM music video, I just about died eek

That B-side didn't hurt either wink
