P Outtakes 1993-1994

Outtakes 1993-1994
Our Fave Prince Period… Period

Cool, studio quality outtakes from Prince’s “Gold” period, circa 1993-1994. As fans know, Prince re-works his tunes ad infinitum, some of which have appeared on extended 30 & 40 minute single CDs, but many end up just sitting in the can. Here are some of those. Remixes of material that originally appeared, in different form, on albums such as Gold Experience, Come, Crystal Ball and Chaos & Disorder. Some differences are subtle, but many of these takes are stripped compared to their released counterparts. The funkier “band” version of “Come” is outrageously cool (hear it below), and all of this ragged gathering is good. We’ve got tons of Prince in the archives, including The Dawn, the mother of all Prince fan-releases from his mid-90s period of brilliance.

    Wow… thanks SO much for all the great and rare Prince tracks here… I think this is my favourite period of his work too… Just grabbed The Dawn… had a lo-res, incomplete version of it… It’s phenomenal.

    Much appreciated…

    Rims.

    Prince music mid 90’s–nice! Prince & I share the same state as our birthplace. There he is either the revered Native Son or The Prophet Without Honor, depending on who is speaking. I count myself in the more revering camp, but love a good funny Prince story, of which there are plenty. Thanks!

      I agree completely. He’s one of the absolute very few artists I would credibly refer to as a musical genius. Not in that everything he does is great, but that he can even do everything he does… so quickly, so spontaneously and over such a landscape of styles. At the same time, I can count numerous times I’ve wanted to just kick him square in the balls. I’m glad he’s come to grips with people stealing from him. I know it sucks to have your whole musical/business model become obsolete overnight (unless you want to live it out in court). But, he’s one of the few to adapt, to figure how to make it all work for him. I love his various experiments, sales models, websites and fan clubs, too. Can’t wait to see what he tries next.

    Willard — I just discovered the site, and I’ve been loving all this rare Prince. Thank you! Not to look a gift blogger in the mouth, but this link appears to be down.
