Early "The Family" configuration(s)?

An undated early work-in-progress configuration of the album is known to exist, tentatively titled Hi Fashion, which also included Paisley Park (an instrumental song different from the Around The World In A Day song of the same name, and a track titled BMW (thought to be an interim title of Susannah's Pajamas).


So... Source?

Familiar with 'Paisley Park'

and BMW and earlier name for Susannah's Pajamas

I would suspect there would be 1 or 2 different configurations for most of the albums

outtakes Feline Miss Understood etc

Which is ridiculous, The Family is a Prince album.

AA&P is a board about the people and their non-Prince projects, not about the music Prince recorded for other people.

If u look on the right, where the whole sequence is listed, it says

Early sequence, likely only made on paper and not sequenced as such

It's possible that it recently surfaced on some auction sale, as a lot has since P passed. However Princevault is likely to have some "elite" sources who have certain uncirculating recordings or items, that they know can be trusted for info but that they cannot publicly acknowledge because those people want to be left alone. I can't think of any other way certain post-Uptown informations have surfaced on the website. Therefore if it's there you can bet it's properly sourced even if the source isn't made public. Princevault can occasionally make mistakes, but they're usually just things that are overlooked or mistyped, not things like this: they certainly don't make shit up, or include info that they don't believe is from a reliable source.

"Miss Understood" is a great song.I wish Prince had found a place for it.
