12-inch, Vinyl record

A great release of the song that really put Prince over the top – a song that got him maybe more play on rock and pop stations than he was ever getting on soul radio – and which for years became an anthem for folks who never would have touched his music in years before! The version here is the very long 8 minute take – which builds and builds – and "God" is a very cool non-LP b-side, which has this gentle vibe that's really beautiful – with lots of room for Prince's vocals to step out slowly into space!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Paisley Park, 1987. Near Mint- (pic cover)
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
Warner, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)
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
