A thread devoted to the Purple One.
Just cuz your title got the song stuck in my head:
Prince’s songs that are heavy in religious references are my favorites. This and “7” are tops for me.
nice. never knew about the extended version.
Me either. That was really fun.
I had searched for the “Extended Version” since Around the World in a Day came out.
I was in full on Prince mode at the time. And had read in some magazine or book that there was this ten minute long version of Computer Blue that had never made it as a B-side or on the album.
I searched for it long and hard. I have a slightly shorter version that was … found … in some corner of the Internet.
And now, it was just a Google search away.
I have a couple other “bootleg” albums that I hope get to be actually produced once the estate pans out.
Since this crept up into my brain this morning…
And this thread needs a resurection

He did, however, film a video for the song to prime the pump for the burgeoning VHS home video market where artists like Prince and Madonna could release videos MTV refused to air.
That was where I first saw it was on a Prince VHS someone bought for me. We popped it in and when this one came on we were … intrigued and impressed
