Great article!!! It's real cool to know what Lisa has to say.

I wonder if we'll get to hear Ice Cream any time in the next few years...

alk about what you hear him doing on these recordings?
Listening to this tape is kind of like watching a soccer player warm up with a soccer ball -- they just kick it around and bounce it off all the different parts of their body. They're focusing. They're alone, even though it's a team sport. In his mind he was always creating for huge audiences and playing to the world, but at this moment it's just him and the songs and it feels like just you he's talking to. It's so intimate. It's really just him and a piano.

Was it a heavy emotional experience to hear this?
Oh God yeah. I didn't want to do it. It was hard and I cried, and just hearing his voice at the beginning of the tape, when he tinkles around and he's talking to one of his engineers and just speaks into the mic...Just hearing his voice like that, it was wonderful to hear and it was painful. It was instant time travel. But I was honored that they asked me to do it, and I care so much about it that I really felt like I had to take it on, so Prince would know I really care and I really understand him as a musician. I just hope the liner notes are good; I think I'm a better writer than that but I couldn't get it together in my brain because it was so emotional. All I could do was cough up a bunch of thoughts.
