MAYTE Child Of The Sun + Princess (1995)


Child Of The Sun (1995)
Princess (Bootleg 1995)
Prince’s Ex! The NPG Album + Outtakes & Pre-Mixes

Child Of The Sun was actually released twice. First on Prince’s NPG label, later the same year on Phantom Sound & Vision, with the same songs in a different running order (don’t ask me why). Princess, on the other hand, is a bootleg gathering of session outtakes and Child Of The Sun pre-mixes, before the Purple One sprinkled on his post-studio magic. For instance, The Child Of The Sun track, “However Much U Want,” begins with a backwards dialog between Prince & Mayte. The Princess version has that dialog forwards (and a second pre-mix version is without the dialog at all). You can compare the pre- & post- versions of “House Of Brick (Brick House),” with fake surface noise, below. Also included are four tracks from 1992/1993, before Mayte ever even hooked up with Prince, including a cover of Mr. Mister’s “Broken Wings.” As most might agree, as fascinating as Prince’s ability to write & perform dozens of LPs for proteges and pals, they rarely have the staying power of a full-on Prince album. Long time fans, however, still enjoy hearing Prince’s harmonies, beats and variations. Find the official release at Amazon, HERE. Check the archives for tons o’ Prince.
