Info about Work It 2.0


NO TROLL THREADS! NO SOLICITING FOR BOOTLEGS! Discussion is fine, so long as the bootleg is not being promoted e.g. pre-release; requests/offers to share or copy, and links to download or bootleg sites are not. Posting Prince and associated artist videos from sites such as YouTube is also not allowed. Posts of this nature will be deleted and repeat offenders will be first warned, and then banned. Troll threads, fake tracklists, and attention seeking rumor threads will be also be swiftly dealt with. These rules are strictly enforced! ----- luv4u

Hi

Could anyone give me some details about Work It 2.0, V1, disc 2?

Track 10 - "instrumental #4"

When is this from?

Is that Prince on all instruments, drums too?

It's amazing

Instrumental #4 and all the other instrumentals on that disc were recorded in 1977. I think Prince is only playing keys here, Bobby Z is on drums and Andre Cymone is on bass.

Are you sure about this?

And where is this info from?

Because the drum style fits the way Prince played drums. Although maybe it's very technical advanced to be him

But he was a good/great drummer

Very recently these 1977 home studio recordings were released in very good quality. I think the 3rd instrumental was later used on the Girl6 album. Had to look it up, but he used the melody for She Spoke to Me.

To be honest I'm not good enough at listening to drums to be able to differentiate between who might be playing here, but my info comes from a PDF of Uptown's The Vault book that I have, here's a picture of their log for the details of this session.

Ok. Sigh, I just told a friend "Prince plays ALL the instruments!"

Figured, from that time period it would be him alone.

Guess not. But it still sounds awesome.

Really great drumming and jamming there
