HABIBI (MACHINE GUN)

So, if you are an utter nutter and you have fashioned a seperate digital folder for Habibi. what design would you add to it?

Basically I need an era-correct picture, but not that pic from the tourbook, where he's on the ground and Mayte stand over him with the Symbol guitar, cuz I already used that for my Days Of WIld (Studio Version) folder.

So you have a separate folder for Habibi and a separate folder for the studio version of Days of Wild... how do you decide what gets its own folder and what doesn't (assuming that everything doesn't)? Just curious.

Oh, and I don't have a suggestion for a design.

I have the official discography, but have added some extra folders, like for Dolphin (Album version and the one from The Undertaker)

Days Of Wild was the first song on the DAT tape that Prince sold to some radio stations in Europen and our first studio introduction to the later Gold Experience/Come period and as a song it NEEDED to be in my singles collection folder.

Same thing with the new material in the Ahdio Shows on the NPGmc; I treat the unreleased material as singles and as most of these never ended up on albums, like Splash or Breathe, or indeed, that MAGNIFICENT Habibi, those got treated like singles.

Often. those are also the songs that get included on my personal playlists to introduce people to the OTHER Prince, aka. the non-hit songs most people never heard cuz he was too under the radar, yet SOOOOO deserve to be heard.
