That guitar on "Feel U Up" "Fuck It Up!" 1988 rehearsal session.

My god is that something or what?!

I've never heard him play the guitar so fierce. WHY didn't he bring out that showstopper on a real concert with a large crowd?! I reeeeaaally don't get this man sometimes.

It's good but similar vibe on Rave from 1988 Small Club gig have better guitar playing

Yeah, I love the 88' rehearsals and "Fuck It Up" is among my favourites. For me, that band had a precision, fire and energy that marks it out, as did Prince’s playing. There are plenty of other moments that rival it over the years, but it’s undoubtedly great. It’s funky and funny too – everything that I loved about Prince really. biggrin

Yes, a prime example of why you really need to dig a little to get a true measure of Prince's talent.

NO ONE could dance around just ONE CHORD like Prince.

Then, when he put a few other chords together eek
