The Uncut interview with Shelby Johnson also indicates she is singing all vocals for 'Running Game (Son of a Slave Master)' with Prince only contributing vocals on the chorus. So we now know Prince is not lead vocalist on at least two songs from a twelve track album.

Here's the link for the article: https://www.uncut.co.uk/f...rpSpx9waUE

I'm sure it will still be an enjoyable album, but I'm increasingly glad I cancelled my pre-order of the deluxe edition. At £149 in the UK, I'd essentially be paying around £137 for a blu-ray minus the CD album price, and that is far too steep a price for one concert that features prominent performances from other vocalists.

It's weird because another review (the one by Jason Draper) mentions Running Game but nothing about it having Shelby on lead vocals. A bit later he mentions Stand Up and B Strong as being the album equivalent of Prince going for an outfit change during a show and leaving the girls do their thing...Hopefully Uncut got confused and mixed up the titles...

I guess the shows did reflect the album, in the respect that the girls sang so many parts.

A few photos of the CD version are circulating, including booklet pages, front and back, credits, page with lyrics to One Day We'll All B Free etc.

Just got mojo magazine, It gets a positive review, 4 stars. In this review its Stand up and be strong , which mentions theres too much of the backing singers on it. And says its sloppy! Besides that though he says that it is a good album, much better than 20ten. With One day will Will All be Free the standout for him. Saying its a great Prince Song! This review and the few others so far , are getting me excited to hear this album more and more.

I note Elisa states in the Rolling Stone article that 'Stand Up B Strong' is 'unfinished' with 'empty production', which is an honest but odd comment when promoting the album. Morris also indicates that 'Check the Record' was unfinished and awaiting Prince to add guitar, which Prince suggests vocally on the track. As 'Born 2 Die' also sounded somewhat empty and incomplete to me, it seems this album is not the finished product many of us initially believed.

It's quite incoherent as at one point they say it was ready to go and shelved for unknown reasons, the next minute they say it's incomplete. I'm assuming the guitar bit about Check The Record might have been him doing that on purpose, a bit like Sly on Dance 2 The Music maybe, who knows, we'll probably know more after we hear the song.



SAME PAGE DIFFERENT BOOK also sounds like stuff is missing from it toward the end since it goes on for a bit and nothing much happens anymore.

Yet, that song was released by prince himself through the 3rdEyeGirl youtube channel.

so who knows how much was unfinished and how much was meant to be kind of 'empty' or 'spacious'

But when morris says he meant to put a guitar part in CHECK THE RECORD and when Elisa says that he never did finish up STAND UP AND B STRONG I tend to believe them, because, why not?

Prince has a harmony vocal in the chorus, background vocals and some ‘ad-lib’ shout outs, but that’s it, sorry mate.

saying that though, on "coco boys" I prefer the earlier version where prince mimics the horns, which is so much funkier in the song imo. so it might be a good thing.

I know, but it's not very much unlike him either, since he gave Shelby pretty much the lead on CHELSEA ROGERS and judith is 90% on vox for MILLION $ SHOW. there's a couple more but I'm not remembering them right now.

But I've also had a bit of a feeling that this might -in essence- be more of an NPG album.

Anyway, still excited. smile

I guess it's good they're being honest.

And what would people rather have...unfinished, finished by someone else or don't release it

Ouch! So that makes it 2 then, Running Game and Stand Up and B Strong.

At least he's in there somewhere, hope at least Running Game is a good funky track.

Thanks for the info.
