the Tony Fly mix of Rock N Roll Is Alive. The Gold Party is excellent. Again the

Dales's Comments (rates this release
The final instalment of Sabotage's
fantastic Paisley Park 2cd set. This particular disc differs from the others as
the show featured is the 18th September 1995 show played after a Gold Experience
listening party was held. The show is far less structured than many from the
same period with far more emphasis on loose jamming and various crowd chants.
That said there is a stunning very guitar heavy version of 'The Cross' played.
Tracks #7-10 are basically a long jam with various crowd call-and-chants centred
around 'Rock N Roll Is Alive'. Next up is the short 15 minute set played after
the filming of various video's for the Gold Experience and the Love 4 One
Another broadcast on 10th October 1995 (listed as 7th October 1995 on the
The set includes a version of 'Love...Thy Will Be Done' which Prince dedicates
to Time Warner for releasing the Gold Experience album. The final bonus track is
the radio broadcast of 'Rock N Roll Is Alive' by the Minneapolis DJ Tony Fly.
The sound quality throughout is consistently excellent, however the 10th October
1995 recording is rather heavy with a fair amount of audience noise. On it's own
this is a great release, but combined with the other 2 discs from this 3cd set,
it becomes a fantastic addition to an already quality filled release. A stunning
early release from Sabotage.
