1987 Prince music...

What are the songs created in 1987 by Prince that are non-Dream Factory/Camille sessions related? Or that you know of, songs not birthed prior to 1987.

.

Let the Sheila E Birthday party music turn Black album music continue along that trajectory, don't include Black Album music.
And the New Power conversion that became Lovesexy let those songs stay with Lovesexy.
But if songs were not a part of those projects and created before July 1987, include them

.

What would they sound like if he placed them as an album, say May/June 1987? How would you configure the tracking?

.

Add onto the list

1. La La La He He Hee [January 1987 @ the Galpin Blvd Home Studio]

2. The Sex of It [July 1987 @ Paisley Park]

3. 101

4. Come Home [January 1987 @ the Galpin Blvd Home Studio]

imprimis

- 3 Nigs Watchin' A Kung Fu Movie - January 1987

.

- Jaguar (January 1987; originally for Sheena Easton, later given to Mavis Staples)

.

- If I Love U 2 Nite ('Final' take recorded July 1987, as leaked from the 1991 Mica Paris mispressing; earlier, less refined version of this recording likely slightly predates this, and it is definitely distinguishable from his eventual Lovesexy mode of production styling; obviously disregarding The Rebels sessions and any rumoured 1981/1982 versions)

.
- I Guess I'm Crazy (Original 1987 take with Prince vocals, slightly cleaned up and remixed for use by Mavis Staples in 1988/1989; allegedly July 1987 again, but if so on the fence favouring the earlier pre-Lovesexy production)

.

- The Latest Fashion (Original 1987 take, presented to Dale Bozzio but unused, this same version being later updated in 1989 with Morris Day; allegedly April 1987 and from the same sessions as 'So Strong'; original version has no horns, background chorus, 'spurned/cheating' lover banter, sound effects, etc., and emphasizes the synth lead drowned out by these in the '89 update)

.

Also, and incidentally:

.

- 77 Bleeker St (January 1987 - Guitar and other overdubs, and minor reworkings by Prince, on this David Z-produced 1986 JJ track)

- There's Something I Like About Being Your Fool (1981 Hookers/V6 track; drastically reworked and overdubbed in January 1987, for use by Bonnie Raitt, & possibly Jill Jones)

- Jealous Girl (1981 Hookers/V6 track; previously offerred to the Bangles along with 'Manic Monday' in 1985, unaltered; drastically reworked and overdubbed in Jan-Feb 1987, for use by Bonnie Raitt)

- I Need A Man (1981 Hookers/V6 track; drastically reworked and overdubbed in January 1987, for use by Bonnie Raitt)

- Promise To Be True (1983, if not earlier, V6 track; drastically reworked and overdubbed in January 1987, for use by Bonnie Raitt)

- Big Tall Wall (1986 track, Revamped/Overdubbed on 11 July 1987; most likely different from any currently circulating version)

- I Wonder (My own speculation, seems originate from, at most recent, this 1987 stage of early GB material; 1990/1991 popular date attribution, but seems at odds with the unsampled Linn and that Fairlight patch)

- The Ballad of Dorothy Parker - Work on a later aborted 12" Single Remix, early/mid 1987

- Housequake (7 Minutes MoQuake), unknown dates, early/mid 1987

- Housequake, Razormaid Remix, unknown dates 1987

- I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man, aborted 12" Single Remix, unknown dates 1987

- I Believe I Love U (Demo'ed April 1987-July 1987)

- Graffiti Bridge (Earliest tracking on 11 July 1987, most likely does not belong on this list)

- Melody Cool (Initial tracking 9 July 1987, most likely does not belong on this list)

- Kenya (31 July 1987 initial tracking; overdubbed in 1989; most likely does not belong on this list)

- Night Owl (30 July 1987 initial tracking; overdubbed in 1989; most likely does not belong on this list)

- No Changes (Possibly the first thing recorded in a full session at Paisley Park Studios; 9 July 1987)

- Cindy C (March 1987 basic tracking)

- Dead on It (March 1987)

- Superfunkycalifragisexy (January 1987 overdubs and remixing)

- Eternity (pre-July 1987, to the unknown degree that he was involved in any of the changes or added instrumentation on the version appearing on Sheena Easton's 'No Sound but a Heart')

- Unfinished Miles Davis 'Instrumental' tribute track, recorded 24 March 1987 at the Washington Ave Warehouse

- What Did I Do (Instrumental track, studio version of which speculated to have been recorded prior to July 1987)

.

.

Very few of these would fit well together, or on the tracklist of your concept early-1987 material record.

This is one I would love to have Prince (and or Cat) on vocals.
I never felt Mavis carried it well. It needed to wildness to it.
