Almost looks like it could be from a soundcheck recording session based on the directions they're all facing.

Man, I went to the first night of those shows. Waited in line outside. Then the second night I hear Wendy and Lisa show up, and now I learn for the first time that Sounds of Blackness showed up. I'm bummed!

I used to play the songs Optimistic, the Pressure(and the remixes) Testify(and the remixes) and Harambee over and over

Their positivity and belief in God was a perfect match here with what Prince was doing. Man, things got derailed.

They are anywhere now but in 88/89 they had some good vibes.
If this happened in 99 it wouldn't perk my ears at all
