P Fantasia – Demos And Outtakes 1983-1996 (3CD Boot 1997)

Fastasia (1997)
Demos And Outtakes 1983-1996

Not a particularly coherent Prince boot, Fantasia contains 3CDs of odds & ends dating back to Prince’s Revolution and winding its way through his work with friends and protégés, including Madhouse, Carmen Electra, Ingrid Chavez, & N.P.G. The sound is uniformly excellent, even if versions of many of these tracks eventually found their way onto various releases over the years, like the abbreviated “Crystal Ball,” “Days Of Wild,” “18 & Over” or “”Slave 2 The System.” For P’s genuinely hip “Sexy MF,” you hear an enhanced groove, as the song is stripped of the original’s swirling Hammond. It’s a worthy gathering for those who haven’t got the time to search the nooks and crannies of Prince’s massive catalog of unreleased work. Check out all the other Prince in the archives, HERE.

    Willard, you introduced me to one of THE best Prince boots — hell, it’s one of Prince’s best albums, period — the 3 CD 90s collection, The Dawn.

    So if you say this one’s worthwhile, I’m so there. Thanks!

      The Dawn IS one of the best. This one’s different, though. Like I mentioned, it’s rather incoherent and inconsistent. But, there’s some decent stuff to be had here. It would probably have been a better 2CD set.

    Hey Cap’n W, thanks for more music from The Purple One! I had sort of given up on the old fella starting in the mid 90’s, but picked up some of the stuff you’ve posted… and you’ve given him a new lease on music to my ear.

    Thanks again… you da man.

      Hope you scored The Dawn, that’s the ultimate for his mid-90s work.

    Does this one include the entire Dream Factory tracklist?

    No, it doesn’t. Prince had an actual album called Dream Factory in the works, and there have been numerous unofficial gatherings of what was purported to be that unreleased album, but the makers of this boot just swiped the name since they already had the title track. This place (http://www.angelfire.com/jazz/ug2p/) has a few variations of the tunes that were supposed to be part of that album. Check the listings on the left hand side, there are 3 or 4 versions.
