Prince is the self-titled second studio album by American singer Prince. It was released on October 19, 1979 by Warner Bros. The album was written, arranged, composed, produced and performed entirely by Prince. Overall, Prince was regarded as more diverse than For You 1978, and performed better critically and commercially. Reviewing in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies 1981, Robert Christgau wrote: This boy is going to be a big star, and he deserves it. In this episode, part two of a two-part conversation, we primarily discuss Duane Tudahl's book, Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions: 1983 and 1984, which is out now. Our conversation does not exclusively discuss the book but as always shifts to all things Prince. We are very excited that Duanes book is the subject of our inaugural episode of Grown Folks Music's Behind The Book podcast series. We are extremely honored to have Duane Tudahl, the author of Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions: 1983 and 1984, and Miss TLC, the creator of Princeversaries on Twitter, j. 12 PURPLE VINYL Prince had an incredible ability to deliver the most amazing performances in the live arena. The proof of that fact lies in the wide variety of performances which were broadcast live to air without a safety net. The live broadcasts collected together on this album reflect Prince at his best and most raw. This is Prince with no second chances, no prospect of retakes and no overdubs. The live broadcasts are ultimate proof of the quality of Prince as a genuine music phenomenon and an inspiring artist. This is the ultimate review of the work of Prince broadcasting live. TRACK LIST.

Purple Rain is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Prince, released on June 25, 1984 by Warner Bros. It is the first to feature the billing of his band the Revolution, and is the soundtrack to the 1984 film of the same name. Purple Rain was musically denser than Prince's previous albums, emphasizing full band performances, and multiple layers of guitars, keyboards, electronic synthesizer effects, drum machines, and other instruments.

In the early 90s, the notably prolific Purple One had over 500 songs in the vault. Prince wanted to release them as he saw fit. Warner Bros. his longtime label, didnt like that one bit. Now that The Artist Formerly Known as Prince had freedom and his own NPG Records imprint, he released music at a breakneck clip. In 1996 alone, he put out a whopping 180 minutes of music in the form of Emancipation. For some comparison, thats about the same as his first five records combined - if you count the single-LP version of 1999. During this era, he released so much that even some diehard fans couldnt keep up. People didnt know what to do with so much information in front of them. Nevertheless, its a fabulously crisp mix of one of modern pops greatest LPs. Details sparkle: the string flourishes on Take Me With You and Purple Rain the finger-snap on When Doves Cry, just after dude coos about you and I engaged in a kiss the actual kiss around the three-minute mark of Baby Im a Star
