New Leak - 101

As stated at the top of the forum:

NO TROLL THREADS! NO SOLICITING FOR BOOTLEGS! Discussion is fine, so long as the bootleg is not being promoted e.g. pre-release; requests/offers to share or copy, and links to download or bootleg sites are not. Posting Prince and associated artist videos from sites such as YouTube is also not allowed. Posts of this nature will be deleted and repeat offenders will be first warned, and then banned. Troll threads, fake tracklists, and attention seeking rumor threads will be also be swiftly dealt with. These rules are strictly enforced! --- luv4u

*************************

Previously unheard Prince track, 101, from the upcoming set from Eye Records has been leaked in some of the usual places...

Excellent and highly atmospheric, this is top-drawer Prince.

From Princevault: "101 is the eighth track on Sheena Easton's ninth album The Lover In Me, and, eight months after the album's release, 101 was released as the album's third single. 101 was written and produced by Prince (credited as Joey Coco).
Initial tracking took place on 10 January 1987 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (four days before Jaguar)."

It's cool to hear but I don't really love it. I think Sheena elevated the material, which maybe wasn't his best to begin with.

101 sounds great. Main hook sounds familiar but I'm sure i never heard it before. Maybe I did, if it was on the radio in the U.K. I would have been a wee nipper.

So. Eye's release is not a concert boot then.
Chances of it having 'Wally' in the set?

Seems to me that he was deliberately planning on giving this song to a female and Sheena Easton was it.

His falsetto seems to be a little higher than usual, not to mention the subject matter.

I suppose it was still nice to hear Prince's version, even if it didn't really hit me over the head.

Maybe I should give it another listen.

Nice. I heard a snippet of this a few months back. I guess it was doing the rounds amongst traders.

The vocals are particularly intense and compelling.

Interesting that Prince's original has partly different instrumentation, with a sound closer to e.g. "Housequake".

.

I could swear I hear Susannah Melvoin mixed in with Prince's vocal towards the end.

I don't know how I ended up so out of the loop, but where has this leaked? How can I hear this? I was never on The royal hub, so I never got that stuff, but torrents used to do the job, but not so much anymore. For a while it seemed like you could find stuff on youtube and dl the audio...

Anyway, if anybody can help me out, I'd appreciate it! I always dug the song.

Nice to hear...

But imho nothing can compare to the Sheena Easton-Uptown-Version (the Extended 8 Minute-Version) of this song...

I think Sheena did a great job in putting her vocals on this one...

The way she emphasized some words, and the strength she put in it...

And the Uptown-Version is a Remix by Prince, with him playing guitar and some cool extra keyboard stuff.. I also like the tambourine on the Extended Version...

For those who don't know this so-called Uptown-Version:

you should really check it out on YouTube...

it's amazing how he managed to sound so different, vocally, on so many songs.
everytime you think 'ok, now we've heard his range and inflections', up pops a
track like this with a tone that's distinctly different again. the man has such an
amazing voice.

cool

Only heard it from my rubbish sounding tablet so far, but I really like it a lot. Going to listen to it properly when I get home.
