Rebirth of the Flesh: the one where one of the band members can be heard saying "thanks" in Japanese after Prince says "last take? Last take?" #favorite

Which rehearsals are these from, would definitely like to hear these, especially if Stick Like Glue doesn't have the lame rap from the studio version razz

As for me I think the performance of Noon Rendezvous on the Neon Rendezvous bootleg is just gorgeous, ditto with that 10 minute performance of Bedtime Story that's on the same rehearsal as When Doves Scream. He really draws out those two songs and brings a power and melancholy to them that the Sheila E studio versions can't match, as much as I enjoy them in their own right.

Heavenly wine and roses seems to whisper to me when you smile...

Cheers, I guess I tend to immediately think of the 80s, and especially the Purple Rain period, when I'm reflecting on Prince's best rehearsals, but there are definitely some latter day gems I need to become more accustomed with.

i found it in an indie record shop here in seattle, it's actually pretty good, the quality isn't great but it's eye opening. It has to be somewhere in the ATWIAD period give or take a year, wendy and lisa are there and it's interesting to hear prince-the leader telling them to have fun but play it right at the same time. His voice, un-eq'ed really sounds like the voice of a small person, munchkin like in a way it never came across on the professionally recorded stuff. The song for the sex of it was a song he gave to kid creole, there were mostly live versions of songs from atwiad.

Something in the Water with 3rdEyeGirl. The one where he released a video with the picture of the woman.

Also, Electric Intercourse rehersal.

Lastly, Days of Wild/Aint Nobody/Get Wild/Wild &Loose. 20 minutes of pure funk.

Mu-si-cology!

I love how he teaches the bass line. And it 's a pretty amazing one, especially in the descent starting on the second part of the verse, my mind does a mistake everytime until I finally get it (I'm the slow type).

30 million bucks? What a bargain. Fuck, now it's done.
There will always be musicians, and music lovers.
Prince can sell over a century.

For 9.99 a month (you get this month's [or a specific one] releases),
or 49.99 a year worth of releases,
say 5 outtakes and 2 live concerts each month,
x
10 000 musicians
+ 10 000 music lovers
= 20 000 subscribers and occasional buyers a month around the globe, so pretty reasonable estimates, let's say interested in production, composition arrangements,
times a 100 years (It's only marketing, Babe. And belieeeve me, I'm ready to do dark patterns for Skipper — so Dark! wink If people forget how good is Whitney and mistakes trained monkees for her, what does that tell you about selling a product nowadays? ).

That's around 1.000.000 bucks a year, and believe me, you can repackage it to death, given that you'll have a turn-over of 5 years per subscriber (could be ten, or for nutcases like me, a lifetime — but I want exclusives goodies). That's only 200 000 sales a year, but hey. Then ou have all the extras: soloing the song in Paisley Park, on the SSL G series.

The way he worked, I would pay a lifetime subscription if we had, say once a year, a full song session on multitrack (one of SKipper's websites had this back in '98 or '99, does someone know?). Or maybe was it Bowie? I think the mixer in the NPMGMusic Club was not a multitrack where you could mute each instrument, but I'm pretty sure Bowie did it on his website at some point.

I mean I would wet my pants, get high as the Eiffel Tower (in all senses, know what I mean?).

Imagine: we would know how many first takes there are.

For ALL of them.
And I want to hear the discarded ones!
Imagine soloing the guitars on JIR.
Or your favorite song. Solo.

Men, I feel like a Rockhard just thinking about it (there's joy in repetition).

More rehearsals!
Keep'em coming!
biggrin


PS : Shall we agree that soundchecks don't count? Or do they? Because that would leave us out of root beer... razz
