Time for the second annual Paisley June in celebration of Prince’s 54th birthday on June 7. We’ll take a look at some records from the man himself for the first week or so and then move into some related artists to finish out the month.
“Little Red Corvette” can probably be called Prince’s breakthrough single as it is notable for several “firsts” in his career. The single was his first Top 10 on the US pop charts, first to chart higher on the pop charts than the R&B charts and his first video to air on MTV. This promo 7” single features the edit version of the track from ‘1999’ on one side and an edit of the 12” dance remix on the other. Neither of these tracks has appeared on an officially released CD.
I would like to thank my program director at WABR-FM for ruining the “mint condition” of this record by stamping it with that ugly blue stamp of his!
