love and sex 84 is one of the all time greats

feeling like this never got the appreciation it deserved

this is fucking insane. i mean this is one of the most intense and headspinning things he ever put to tape, i could almost cry right now listening to it at how good it is. this is manic and frenzied off the wall shit, that vocal performance is again one of the all time greats. i am in awe. totally dumbfounded.

just felt the need to say it. discuss.

LOVE THIS. The energy and performance...the vocals. Wow. It is one of those songs that you're amazed he shelved for the entirety of his life. I think the sound is poor and so likely not from the masters. I expect the estate will do a proper SDE of Purple Rain and this song will get better treatment.

Love and Sex (SOTT) > Love and Sex 84

In fact would say its one of the true gems and dare I save fav from the SOTT Deluxe release.

just my humble opinion

Both versions are reallly quite genius, but nothing compared to Future Soul Song, Here, A Million Days, Wasted Kisses, Xtraloveable, Black Muse, Boom, Wow, Anotherlove, Hardrocklover, 3121, Come, Gold, Billy Jack Bitch, Space, Five Women, She Spoke 2 Me, 3 Chains of Gold, Willing and Able, or Thieves in the Temple.

You sound stuck in the 80s, mate.

AGREED!!!

Love and Sex FLORED me when I first heard it.

Can you imagine recording this....then letting it sit undiscovered for
40 years???

Can you imagine if there was ever a live version of this with
The Revolution??!!!

As I said before, P is like 10 great songwriters rolled into one. But ignoring musical genres, artistically there are 3 of him. Prince we know from official albums, live Prince where the songs performed live sound so different, and vault Prince which is an unknown quantity right now, but could turn out to be the most brilliant of all.

And he's also recorded three songs that have 2 completely different versions. Love and Sex, Wow, and the third one... escapes me right now. It'll come to me smile
