Deane's Comments (rates this release 4.5/5.0)
This release has two excellent shows taken from a satellite broadcast. The shows are very different and very enjoyable. The package is also above average. A number of great jams including a rework jam of Shoop.
Dale's Comments (rates this release 4/5.0)
These are both excellent shows. The June 8th show has a little better sound quality, but (IMO) the show on the 9th has the better content of the two, including a couple of rare live performances of Hide The Bone and Ripopgodazippa. The 12+ minute "cover" of Salt N Peppa's Shoop! is also a very nice treat with Prince replacing the original lyrics with rap versions of his own songs (Sexy MF, Gett Off, and Acknowledge Me). These shows are part of a must see celebration of Prince's 1st birthday following his name change.
Mike's Comments (rates this release 3.25/5.0)
Two nice shows, the second and third of the Miami series of shows. Much of this material was new to Prince at the time and he seems to have got a kick out of playing it though the audience reaction is less enthusiastic (only to be expected since they didn't know most of the songs). 'Loose' works well, as does 'Hide the bone' and 'Ripopgodazippa'. A soundboard recording of part of the first show (from 8 June) is also on The undertaker.
