Sweet jebus, how can an article be so badly researched? They say "It's Gonna Be A Beautiful Night" was recorded "during a soundcheck in the south of France during the Parade tour in what was to be the final performances of Prince with The Revolution". They claim "Slow Love" came from the vault (nope, it was a song Carole Davis wrote years earlier; the first recording with Prince is in 1986).

.

The article is mainly based on an interview Rogers did with Red Bull Music Academy, so if you've read that this article offers nothing new. The Q&A with Cat offers some nice anecdotes towards the end, but it also offers yet another bunch of stories about her first encounters with Prince that are (IIRC) contradicted by earlier reporting.

Not to mention them stating UTCM is a "1920s-set farce". Pass.
