    Prince Has 3 Unreleased Tracks Set to Auction

    Post by CKJ505 on Wed Mar 16, 2016 9:03 am

    Prince has a lengthy and prolific career, and the famed musician has amassed quite a large backlog of unreleased material over the past four decades of recording.
    According to The Wrap, Prince’s long-time guitarist and collaborator Dez Dickerson is offering three cassette tape-recorded tracks from the 1970s for auction — at the starting price of $20,000. The music, which includes “an early, acoustic version of ‘So Blue;’ an early version of ‘Gotta Broken Heart Again,’ which would later appear on his seminal Dirty Mind album; and a very early, virtually unrecognizable version of ‘Sometimes It Snows in April,’ (which would be featured on Parade); is part of a larger collection of works slated to be sold.

    “Prince originally gave me the cassette in late 1978 because he wanted me to listen to a record he had recorded on side A (a female-fronted funk band whose name I don’t remember now),” said Dickerson regarding the previously-unheard music. “Sometime during the next year or so, I used the A side to record some scratch bass and guitar parts for songs I was going to be recording for a rock/power pop demo I was doing, recording over the original content (you can still hear a snippet of the funk record at the end of the side). On side B, Prince had his work versions of 6 songs, which I left intact for, at that time, unknown reasons (obviously, we now know it preserved a piece of musical history).”

    Dickerson describes the unreleased tracks are filled with “bouncy, upbeat choruses and risque lyrics,” and one that “features heavy guitar distortion and a chorus that includes very candid sexual pleas from Prince.” All trademarks of early Prince.
    As for the rest of the collection set for auction, Prince fans will have a chance to snag clothing worn by the entertainer himself, a 1959 acoustic guitar used during his earlier days, his former wife’s [Mayte Garcia] diamond engagement ring and the china used during his wedding. However, the full collection is said to start bidding with an additional zero or two in the asking price.

    my bad...didn't notice the date...thx for pointing that out. Embarassed

    i'm just so sensitive right now about everything.

    its material like this that would be PERFECT in a museum!  can you imagine going to a museum and seeing everything that Prince every gave to a 'friend' with his own handwriting documenting his life's story.  we'd all be wetting our pants.  i for one would anyway.
