Over 20 years ago though

And since then the QC has been much more hit 'n' miss. As I say, here's hoping

Didn't go much on the 3 tracks aired on Jonesy's Jukebox. The first one was OK but then it washed out.

Face up to it folks Prince did his best stuff years ago.

Love the guitar work on Crimson and Clover. Haven't heard the original, does that have the Wild Thing bit in it too? Hmm, not sure about There'll Never B Another Like Me, but I quite like Here Eye Come, nice voice and good background guitars.

Is there a legitimate place to hear the other songs aired on American radio?

What would be the best "best of Prince" type compilation for someone who doesn't have any Prince records?

This is a dipping your toe in the water option. Some great 12'' versions included here. But many classic hits missing - especially early (and some would say best) ones missing.


This is currently the most definitive collection although doesn't cover the most of the last 10 years - although neither does the first option.
I may actually have a spare copy of this floating around if you want one cheap.

Thanks GlennSh. I tried that site yesterday and went through the 2 from the day they were played but can't find them. Guess I'll have to wait until the release.

Havent tried the link again, but all 4 tracks were early on in the show when I played it a few weeks back. The MP3s are floating around the web although cant discuss where for obvious reasons...
Cheers

OK, I've now found them the "other" way. I prefer these new songs to Planet Earth so far (not that hard really IMHO) and really enjoying the guitar work. Looking forward to the album release now. When I listen to his recent output I always compare to the great music of the 80s and it doesn't at all. My favourite music is always FAR better. I listened to Lovesexy yesterday (a good album, but not the best) for the first time in ages and it was like a new discovery hearing some of the songs.

However, this has a maturity to it that I appreciate (and no real JW preaching either) and it's great to hear him focusing on the guitar. I loved his guitar playing at the O2 in 2007 so it's about time he played properly on studio tracks again. I accept he won't reach the heights again, no musician can sustain their greatness as far as I can tell. I hope the rest of the album will be as good. Is that Cora drumming on these tracks I wonder? Sounds pretty good to me considering how disliked she is compared to John Blackwell and Michael Bland.

For anyone who missed the earlier deal on Amazon for the Indigo 21 nights book/CD (think I paid about 13-14)...I saw it today in Waterstones for... 7.50

Hope this helps someone

Current bet is 8:00pm LA time so I guess early Sunday morning here.

On a sadder note, shame to see HQ close.

I think it was something to do with a fan made banner that has elements of the new artwork from the official site!
