Prince – Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)

A wonderful future funk track from Prince’s fifth studio album; 1982’s ‘1999’. This could be a contender for the tag ‘Minneapolis Techno’, and surely stands as one of the records that influenced the Motor City guys. Fantastic tune.

Prince & the Revolution – Tambourine

Today is 32 years to the day since Prince (who passed away a year yesterday) released an album that was a wonderful example of 80’s Psychedelic Soul, ‘Around The World In A Day’; a work that was mirrored by the following album ‘Parade’. This track is a taut slice of Avant-Funk a la Prince, with a frosty sexiness quivering throughout.
