Someone asked, if you had to choose between listening to your one favorite song with Prince, always and forever, only, or, every song with Prince, one time and done, which would you choose. I would choose the latter.

What?

Did this man ever stop writing and recording?! Sounds like a Prince composition from the era, I imagine Prince did the ‘demo’ and her musicians re-recorded it. But I’m only guessing, so don’t hate me cuz I’m beautiful!

Sounds about right to me--it's not a great song, but it sounds like a Prince one from around then.

Prince and Val were both managed by Bob Cavallo and became friends and started writing and working together. They did several songs. Steve Lukather talks about one of the Prince sessions in his new book which is great BTW!

I like it, sounds like a lot of his late 70's stuff, even the intonation of her singing, whether that's a Prince thing, a 70's thing or a bit of both. Wish it was a big longer though, sounds like there could be a few more minutes in there.

Very sweet indeed.

She has a lovely voice.

It sounds like something that could have been on For You.

Very '70s.

There's a reply to a similar topic in a Valerie Carter official group where it states that Valerie and Prince worked together on a project with Prince singing and playing. They're trying to get clearance to release these tracks.

Waaaaa...Has anyone read the memories of Steve Lukather?


Prince Estate: (...if you read this) ...one more time

We want to know everything he recorded.

Thank you.

I was not familiar with her either. I listened to her cover of EWF's "That's The Way Of The World" that played after and saw that it listed Maurice White and Phoebe Snow as singing on it as well. They said that it was from Valerie's 1996 album 'The Way It Is' I really like her voice.

From Steve Lukather's book:

.

Like Carlton, Graydon and Ritenour, James was in the process of breaking out from session work and, in his case, into producing. He had just then landed a gig producing a record, Wild Child, for a singer-songwriter named Valerie Carter, and brought me along to play on it. I had dug Valerie back in high school and from her first solo album, which Lowell George of Little Feat fame produced. Wild Child turned out to be a wonderful record to make. The songs were great. It was done at one of my favourite studios, Sunset Sound, and that was when I started to feel as if I had been welcomed into the A-list of guys. James had me write a tune with him for the record, too, called 'Lady in the Dark'. Other than me, he also called in Jeff on drums, David Hungate on bass, and an unbelievable jazz pianist and percussionist, Victor Feldman, who was twenty years older than the rest of us and was another to have worked on Steely's stuff.

.

James had an enigmatic assistant on the record, this little black dude from Minnesota who was supposed to be the new wunderkind. This guy was meant to be there in a co-producer capacity, but didn't actually speak. I would be doing a guitar overdub and his head would just appear over the top of the console. He would stare at me for a few seconds and slowly disappear from view again. It was really fucking weird. He didn't once even acknowledge me, never mind introduce himself. I only found out later that this cat was Prince.

.

Four years later, the two of us would both be back at Sunset Sound. I was doing a session for Greg Mathieson and Prince was working in an adjoining room with his band. I would see him outside the complex at ten in the morning, sat astride a purple motorbike and wearing a silver lame suit. I would smile and nod my head to him, but the most that I ever got out of him in return was a raised eyebrow. He was one very strange, talented cat.

.

There si another reference to Prince in his book which seems to relate to Prince playing keyboards on Stevie Nicks's "Stand Back", but that page wasn't available in Google Books for me.

A brand new Prince song emerges and details about his pre-fame involvement with another artist, and this isn't a sticky or front-page material? And the thread basically dies after a handful of posts?

.

Seriously?

It is strange. At first I thought, "Well, maybe none of the mods have noticed the thread"--but nope, l'ange bleu amended the thread title, so at least one mod knows about the thread. This certainly seems like news-worthy news to me.
