Exactly. And that format is outmoded now. So enjoy your Prince in whatever form you receive him, especially since he was so prolific. That's all.calculus wrote:He didn't create in the album format, but he sure understood it.
Speaking of Let's Go Crazy, here he is with his all girl band, 3RDEYEGIRL back in 2014 with an amped up/funk version of the '84 hit.
Or take his live Peach, from 2002, one of my favorite extended funk jams. His non-commercial music - not always officially released (esp. the 12" singles) always appealed to me more than the mainstream studio stuff I guess.
