30 Years of Jill Jones: Grown Folks Music Inside The Album Podcast

Inside-The-Album-Jill-Jones.jpg

https://soundcloud.com/gr...-music-mp3

While everybody else is celebrating Purple Rain Deluxe, Iā€™m celebrating the 30th anniversary of the debut, Jill Jones! I hope you'll join me, Ivan Orr of Grown Folks Music, regular and esteemed guest Arthur Turnbull of The Music Snobs and Entry Points, as well as Rhonda Nicole, who interviewed Jill in Feb 2016 at http://soultrain.com/2016...es-she-is/, on her GFM Inside The Album podcast debut in celebrating one of the best albums ever recorded. Ever. Yes, ever!

Released 30 years ago on May 27, 1987, Jill Jones' eponymous debut has withstood the test of time as the best side project that Prince has ever produced. However, this is moreso a testament to Jill herself, her amazing voice, and her musical partnership with Prince. Jill was Prince's secret weapon during the most critical time of his career and was the glue that held a many Prince recordings together. Jill was always there, literally on a gazillion recordings; sometimes in front but often behind the scenes. That's why it pains me that her contributions to Prince's legacy is rarely discussed and this has been exacerbated by her absence on the credits of the just released Purple Rain Deluxe release. So, we thought we'd give Jill her due and spotlight her amazing debut and Jill herself in the way she deserves to be recognized.

We šŸ’œ you JJ, ALWAYS!

woogiebear, I do agree with you that the timing was off for this release but it doesn't negate its worth!

This album would have been even better if 77 Bleeker Street was on there. It was the B side to the Mia Bocca single but I felt it was too good to just be that. I REALLY HOPE that Paisley Park re-issue the album on CD and include 77 Bleeker Street. Jill surely deserves that, it would be great 4 her to be in the spotlight again.

I'd love a deluxe version. The remixes are great, especially For Love.
