Grace Dent gave it a great review in Saturday's garden.

I'm going to see Purple Rain at the cinema tomorrow!

Enjoyed the doc although it was extremely light, reminded me of one of those VHI Behind The Music programmes.

Still, it's got me listening to Prince for the first time in a while and finlly wading through Crystal Ball onwards and a lot of the stuff he released as internet only. Some interesting stuff for sure!

The missus got me a framed picture of His Royal Badness with the purple rain paper that rained down on us when we saw him at Hop Farm glued to it, as well as our festival bracelets. Merry Christmas, purple hippies!

Slammin'.

The issue of Wax Poetics itself ought to be worth a pick up for any Prince fan. The articles sound great.

Particularly looking forward to reading Questlove's 33 Reasons Why Prince is Hip-Hop :lol:

What a treasure trove! Amazing. The 'I Would Die 4 U / Baby I'm a Star' video is someone who's at the absolute height of their powers. Prince ripping the splits with Doctor Fink letting fly in the background in scrubs is about as good as life gets.

Yeah, that concert is terrific, thanks for posting that. As well as Baby I'm a Star and DMSR, which are just great, I rather like the organ stabs on Computer Blue too.

Has anyone read Matt Thorne's recent Prince biography? I'm enjoying it for the most part but the constant track-by-track breakdown grows really tiresome around the halfway mark, but the writing's a little more varied either side of that. It's certainly opened my eyes to a raft of Prince material I'd never heard about previously.

I wanted to read it then read the reviews and it sounded awful; really laboured. Fair play for wading through it.

Prince absolutely killed it on “Jimmy Fallon” Friday night, playing his new tune “Screwdriver” and the classic “Bambi.”

After Unleashing a blistering solo on Bambi he did a guitar virtuoso’s version of dropping the mic before walking off stage, throwing his guitar up into the air and letting it crash to the ground. Just one problem: the axe wasn’t his. The Gear Page points out the guitar was a gorgeous 1961 Epiphone Crestwood that belongs to Captian Kirk Douglas of Fallon’s house band The Roots. Apparently when Prince arrived for rehearsal he admired the guitar and asked to borrow it for the performance. Douglas agreed, and then Prince wrecked it at the end of “Bambi.” Douglas tweeted out this picture with the caption “Purple Pain”:

Haven't seen the video of this before, and it's just great: Prince's first public performance of Purple Rain and the debut of the Revolution line-up. The recording (with a couple of edits and a few minor overdubs) is the one that's then used on the film and record.

Also, a member of Prince's entourage / his new band / perhaps occassionally Prince is tweeting as @3rdeyegirl.

Gobsmacking! Imagine hearing the intro chords to Purple Rain, and having no idea what the song is. Seems impossible to conceive of.

I didn't realise that Purple Rain was an actual live recording. The clarity of sound on that video for 30 years old is fantastic.

For a long time I thought that the live songs were all recorded in the First Avenue performance you see in the movie!
