Interesting. Sax was the only instrument in which Prince received formal lessons. In an early interview, he stated he gave it up early.

Although the released version of the song clearly features Eric Leeds' more extensive work, P's own basic flourishes are distinguishable. Most of this song was recorded on the day he disbanded the Revolution. Perhaps he resorted to recording some of those parts himself, as he had been holing himself away in the bunker of Sunset Sound waiting to make this move?

I forgot there is lyric on the full version of "Telepathy" that was lifted from "Large Room With No Light." Makes me hope for his full version (if there is a one) to be released.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

Interesting, thank you. I’ve always wanted to hear (and see) Prince playing the sax...

1976 High School Newspaper Interview...

He plays several instruments, such as guitar, bass, all keyboards, and drums. He also sings sometimes, which he picked up recently. He played saxophone in seventh grade but gave it up. He regrets he did. He quit playing sax when school ended one summer. He never had time to practice sax anymore when he went back to school. He does not play in the school band. Why? “I really don’t have time to make the concerts.”

Not that surprising given Jill specifically states it is him playing sax on the demo of GSpot.

Sax is a soloing instrument very simialr to lead guitar, so I can easily see Prince being able to do the basics at least on the sax.

Anyone know if Prince was actually playing the violin in the Face Down video? I've always wondered. I wouldn't put it past him.
And the MUSIC continues...forever...

Candy said in an interview back in the day that she owned a tape of Prince playing her sax and it was not too bad
