Deane's Comments (rates this release 5/5.0)
This is the one that started it all. The first release of the Small Club show and at the time it was the best sounding Prince bootleg release and it still is used as a standard to compare other release too. It has been rereleased on many labels in whole and in part. It still remains a favorite amoungst fans and is perhaps the most recommended non official Prince release.

Mike's Comments (rates this release 5/5.0)
Not just a classic aftershow, but the classic aftershow, probably the best he ever did. The soaring and pained guitar solo in 'Just my imagination' takes your breath away, and with that done he creates a new song on the spot - 'People without', complete with a funky synth hook. From the opening notes to the sweaty finale of 'Rave un2 the joy fantastic' this is class all the way and a great illustration of just what the man was capable of at his peak.
