This article says 1999 was the first album where Prince no longer did everything himself and let his band contribute... Huh? Besides Dez playing the solor on LRC, were there any other significant contributions from his band members? I'd hardly count that as Prince giving up control. And if one contribution counts, then Fink playing the keyboard solor on Head should be the first. Right? Or am I missing something?

Patrice Rushen is uncredted but did synth keybords on Baby (For You album)

André Cymone did vocal harmony on Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad? (Prince album).

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

Hearin Morris Day on QLS, I'm sure many people played on early P records uncredited.
