The War (1998)
26 Minute Promo Only Live Psych
Prince’s sci-fi, anti-war, pro-human, conspiracy piece, “The War,” was recorded July 20, 1998 at Paisley Park Studios. Originally over 45 minutes, edited by P down to 26, “The War” is dreamy, meandering and slightly psychedelic jam, with nods to Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” and Bob Marley’s “Exodus.” It was originally sent (unsolicited, on cassette in my case) to those who bought Crystal Ball online. Never officially for sale.
