  1. I miss him too. The world feels like a different place without his energy and presence in it. It truly does. He produced so much music and creativity, that i will never run dry of things to listen to or watch his outstanding talent, but to think he isnt on this planet, still creating music, makes me sad. I saw him last in 2014 and he was still such an incredible performer - though limited physically by his hip problems - he was still captivating, and inspired. I only hope his legacy isn't diluted over time, and that new generations make the effort to explore and appreciate his wonderful and extensive back catalogue. His estate really need to up their game, because the last couple of years have been a piss poor shit show from a legacy point of view. The Purple Rain deluxe reboot was great, but since then we've had one solitary demo, albeit and incredible one, and an already widely circulated piano rehearsal that wasnt that amazing in the first place. He literally has thousands of hours of music and video buried away, that i believe deserves to be heard. With the many platforms to distribute music now, there really is no excuse for it to remain buried.
  2. Cheap video or not, Dolphin, and the rest of the Gold Experience for that matter, are far from bland. This era was a true flourish of output for Prince, and Dolphin is one of the many underrated gems of that era. He was his own worst enemy at the time with regards to the industry, but ultimately he couldn't bring himself to play the game any more, and what is wrong with that?
  3. Its a great album. Some great songs, and the new power generation are such a shit hot band at this point. The only complaint would be Tony M's dreadful rapping all over some of the excellent songs. At times the album becomes a bit messy, as he tries to hard to thread a concept through it all, but some of the songs stand up marvellously. Personally favourites are 7, The Morning Papers, Sweet Baby, The Continental, Love 2 The 9s, and of course Sexy MF & My Name Is Prince. So many good songs on there.
  4. The documentary was ok. I feel like i have to like it because it was his last work, but i do feel like his legacy deserves better than this. Some parts were great - just hearing George talk is always wonderful, he was so intelligent and honest, and seeing some rare live performance was great as well. Seeing his account of his relationship with Anselmo and his mid 90s struggles was also genuinely heartbreaking. The rest of it was just cheapened by random talking heads. The inclusion of James Corden ruined it for me - he is just so vanilla, unfunny, and saccharine its unreal. Oh and Mark Ronson - what is wrong with him, why does he only have a monotone way of communicating. No passion, no excitement. Watching him sit there and praise Freedom 90 in words only, just made me thinkg of all the devious acts of robbery he has committed against great artists. He and Gaga were a perfect match. I hope George's estate are keeping an eye on him for plagiarism.
  5. The Black album is off the charts good. So much fun. and so funky. I would have loved to have seen that as a double album with Lovesexy. Light & Dark. would have been amazing.
  6. not sure if im allowed to do this but you can download it here......https://mega.nz/#!VMJH2ZaC!WJ0V5FchI2fZKUrY3QSr8C25WlkkUUe99pJIhfnUBeU
  7. Yes, the 90 nude tour version was magical. It became a bit too over baked after that-although if you can check out the soundboard version from on of his shows last year. It features a very Family like arrangement but with a brilliant guitar solo on it too. This 1990 version is so full of passion though. In fact I watched his La Corunia concert from the nude tour the other day and it is mesmerising. His energy and moves are incredible.
  8. I'm such a whore for his demo versions of songs he gave to others, but this one has never leaked. I pray i get to hear it one day. This whole album was great though - Come Home, Jaguar, Guess Im Crazy.
  9. Of all the wonderful amazing songs he wrote and produced for others, this one is really striking a chord with me right now. I love most of the work he did with Mavis, but this one is just greatness. https://youtu.be/58dovnV5fYY
  10. Its just heartbreaking. I saw him 3 times in my life, and each time was a different but brilliantly exhilarating experience. To think this man who has been there making music since i was born, music that has been the personal soundtrack to my life and so many happy moments, is now no longer with us - its just too much to comprehend right now. We will always have his music - all of that wonderful wonderful music to go back to, but i will miss his spontaneity, and the new moments of Prince-ness that i have come to rely on as a fan.
  11. this is too hard. but here is what i would say right at this second. When You Were mine Controversy Little Red Corvette Erotic City Purple Rain Sometimes It Snows In April Mountains I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man She's Always In My hair Empty Room i would definitely need a Top 50 to come close to making my mind up.
  12. Living For Love at the Brits was simultaneously the most horrific and triumphant moment of the RH era. So many good moments to choose from really. BIM on Jimmy Fallon, Ghosttown on the I Heart Radio awards, the Howard Stern interview. She really put her all into promotion this era.
  13. Its perfect apart from the ending which is too abrupt for the melodic gloriousness that precedes it! Very clearly a product of the initial sessions with Avicci where she was writing with a tema on just guitar & piano. Why she never developed it is beyond me - such a shame it will never reach its potential, like so many of the rebel heart tracks. for whatever reason.
  14. Yeah i dont see madonna producing Hold Tight alone - seems very strange to me. Not that i dont think she could, but just that i dont think she's ever wanted to be a lone producer. she's all about collaboration. What i found really interesting about hold tight was this: Additional recording in The Ritz (Moscow), Grand Marina Hotel (Barcelona), Patriot Studios (Denver, CO/Venice, CA) Why all these extra weird locations? Made me wonder if the initial demo was Madonna's and was recorded while on tour or something?
