OK, up front, this technically is not a record from my collection. It is cobbled together from two sources. In 1997, on a visit to a friend’s house, somewhere in Texas, we had access to this record and we recorded the b-side using his turntable and computer to burn the tracks to an audio CD. So, I have pulled the spoken word tracks from my CDR copy that has been stored away for over 15 years and processed them as I normally do. The a-side is actually ripped from the b-side of my original copy of ”I Would Die 4 U” 7-inch single. The high resolution artwork credit goes to an anonymous donor.
The seven short messages by Prince, Apollonia and Sheila E. were designed to be played by radio stations before their songs. Prince introducing “Purple Rain” is actually an audio snippet from the movie Purple Rain.
This is a very rare record that is very hard to find. It ranges in price anywhere from $150-$300. So, until you are able to find your own copy of this record, here’s the next best thing!
Once again, I want to wish everyone out there in Fun With Vinyl-land a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See ya’ll next year!
