"Pop Life" is a real gem from Prince – a tune that's completely catchy, but maybe a bit more laidback than some of his previous hits – in a mode that some folks were calling a bit psychedelic at the time, but which really just shows the increasing depth of the man's genius! The "fresh dance" mix here is by Sheila E – who really gives the whole thing a nice crackle – and the flipside features a long take on "Hello", too.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some wear at the opening and lightly bent corners.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us! The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the most romping tunes ever recorded by Prince – the kind of cut that was an instant dancefloor stormer back in the day, and still sounds mighty groovy all these many years later! The song is featured here in it's very extended version – and is backed by the fantastic non-LP cut ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Streetwise, 1983. Very Good+
Either a comeback or a swan song for Eartha – as it was her first big single in years, and maybe her last ever – but whatever the case, the tune was a strong entry in the camp disco category – with a title and theme that would keep this one playing on dancefloors for years! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Emergency, 1984. Very Good+
A track that really takes us back, like any of the Arthur Baker or Johnny Rocca cuts, or Shannon's "Let the Music Play". We're not sure this qualifies for classic status, but it does make us feel a little nostalgic. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Jive, 1984. Very Good+
Hugh Masekela's never been shy of the soul charts, and he made a nice dent with this excellent discofied jam, with the catchy chorus, and surprisingly little horn peaking through the percussion heavy mix. 12-inch, Vinyl record
