Comments
Deane's Comments (rates this release 5/5.0)
The merits of bootlegs become very clear when you play this set - it's classic rehearsal material of a kind Prince would never consider releasing. The April rehearsal opens with Prince talking to the band members over a loose arrangement of James Brown's 'The payback' before launching into a 40+ minute version of 'Alphabet St.' that more often than not goes off at a tangent. 'Positivity' on disc 2 is also long, around 35 minutes, and features take after take of the song. And to think that after all that effort the song was dropped from the Lovesexy set after only a few shows... 'I wish U heaven' is another highlight as it extends into an instrumental 'Take this beat' and beyond. If you have space for a 3CD set in your shelves this wouldn't be a bad choice to fill it.
