Who doesn't love a Prince 12inch!!!

I would love to know what your favourite Prince 12inch record is.
I recently heard 'U got the look' & 'Hot thing' 12inch on P Funk radio and forgot how amazing they are. It also brought back great memories of rushing to record shop and getting the 12inch version as soon as he released a record.
Wouldn't you just love a Prince - the 12inches album? You just get so lost in them.
'I wish U Heaven' and 'Lets go crazy' 12 inches are two of my favourites.
But I wish I had an extended version of Baby I'm a star (not sure there is one on record), as that is what was so special for me at concerts and watching his live DVDs... when he just went on & on with this song and it was one huge party where you could really lose yourself!

I wish u heaven. Not particularly a favourite from that album, but I love the different places it goes on the 12".

eye Wish U Heaven/ Scarlet Pussy is the best.
Followed (very) closely by Let's Go Crazy/ Erotic City.
You know, it's a real shame those maxi singles went away... Imagine a 10 minute version of The Gold Standard with an equally long Da Bourgeoisie on the b side...

i've been spinning t's 12 inch for the past 2 days solid. so, so good.

america is by far my favorite. 17 days is up there, too, along with the acoustic version of space. there is a lot of nice guitar work on the greatest romance...ep, too. 7 minutes mo quake, alexa de paris, i wish u heaven, erotic city...ugh. absolutely fucking gutted that this man is gone.

i agree with northc...some of the '00s and '10s stuff would be a lot of fun with extended and/or remixed versions. it makes me sad that we got so few of those these last years. hopefully the vault is full of these gems that will spill out in the coming years.

Oh God... I've been wanting to make this joke ever since I saw this thread, but I thought, this forum is so full of folks who aren't afraid to discuss Prince's sexuality, that sure as hell, somebody would think of this?

highfive I'll always have love for his 12 inches!

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

I was enamoured with the "Let's Go Crazy" single. I loved the longer version - the echoed cowbells and percussion in part of it that almost made it sound like something was happening outside of your headphones. (I remember a similar moment in "Funkytown", where some percussion was mixed in a 'backroom' sorta way, and it sounded like something outside of the mix.) "Erotic City" was just delicious.

"Thieves In The Temple" has a great extended section, and it's worth that for the price alone.

"Glam Slam" and "Escape" is pretty fun, and always holds a place for me.

"U Got The Look" b/w "Housequake" is so much fun throughout.

However, it was even cooler to put "I Would Die 4 U" on the player, because of the larger label, the smaller playing section - everything about it was odd and cool.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

Yet one more reason I got into Prince. He had some killer extended versions. Then you flip the record over and would get a song you had never heard before. Then you had to search the record stores for more goodies. Damn I miss those days. I miss him.
