    I really wore the cassette out back in 86/87
    Even today it sound fresh, maybe because it's been so long since I've gave it a spin.
    Notorious and The Wedding album are probably my favorite D.D. albums

    If I look back in my collection, Stevie Wonder's "Journey Through The Secret Life Of Plants", & The Rolling Stone's "Sticky Fingers" has been on my iPad & on repeat.

    Eric Leeds and Mr.Nelson's "THE FLESH ALBUM"!

    I have it ready on play when I ever get a chance to listen to it! 

    Thanks to Maceo & Co. for the Mega 1986 Boxset, I found it in one of the boxes, folder 2-4

    Info : The Flesh is an unreleased album by The Flesh (essentially made up of Prince and Eric Leeds, as a precursor to Madhouse, with other musicians on three of the four tracks), recorded in two sessions, on 26 December, 1985 and 5 January, 1986. The album was compiled on 22 January, 1986, but was abandoned when Under The Cherry Moon and other projects demanded Prince's full attention.

    The tracks included were all jazz-funk instrumentals, and were mostly improvised during the sessions. Eric Leeds was featured prominently, and the plan was to not include mention of Prince's input when the album was planned for release (as was the case with the later Madhouse albums).


    Recording process

    A Couple Of Miles was recorded on 26 December, 1985.

    Junk Music, Up From Below and Y'All Want Some More? were recorded on 5 January, 1986, during a seven-hour session that was known by bandmembers as the "Everybody's Jam" session (which also included Groove In C Minor, Slow Groove In G Major and Groove In G Flat Minor, which may have also been considered for the project).

    It is likely that tracks from the so-called "Paisley Jam" session on 28 December, 1985, which was similarly-improvised and focused on instrumental jazz-funk, may have also been considered for the project; these tracks were High Calonic, Slaughterhouse, U Just Can't Stop, Run Amok, Mobile, Madrid, Breathless and 12 Keys.

    U Gotta Shake Something and Voodoo Who (cover version of Villanova Junction by Jimi Hendrix) were recorded on 30 December, 1985 (the same day Eric Leeds added overdubs to A Couple Of Miles and that Most Strongest Whiskey and were recorded) 

    None of the tracks from the album have been released, although 30 seconds of Junk Music can be heard in Under The Cherry Moon, in the scene where Christopher Tracy races against Mary Sharon on the horse race track.
