  1. I know there's a bunch of unreleased stuff that Prince did including Camille, some stuff w/ the Revolution, and the legendary collaboration he did with Miles Davis. That's the one I'm most interested in.

    1. @thevoid99: Susan Rodgers, creator of the vault and his former sound engineer, says in an interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu273pvAd_w) her favorite unreleased is Moonbeam Levels (1982), and it’s beautiful.
      From Camille, Rebirth Of The Flesh you can only listen to as a live rehearsal, it’s quite funky. According to princevault.com, the rest of the Camille songs are on other Prince albums.
      I’ve read Can I Play With U? was sent on tape to Miles Davis, and Davis added trumpet. This is a bootleg of that song: http://yourlisten.com/Revolution81/can-i-play-with-u

  2. I am actually a huge Prince fan. His was the first concert I ever attended! He will always have a special place in my heart!

    1. @msmariah: He’s a great artist! I’ve heard Prince is a great live act, so I’m jealous you got to see him perform.


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
