Session 57: Prince – 'Prince'
It may not have the mega hits and 80s studio slickness of his Purple period, but his self titled album definitely set the tone for everything that followed. Hyper sensual and sexual, there’s absolutely no doubt that this is by Prince.
Showcasing his musical and lyrical prowess, and following on from a lacklustre and poorly received debut, this is Prince establishing the swagger and self belief that would launch him through the 80s and onwards into musical history.
As usual we’ll follow the album with our usual 7″ session. Bring along a single of your choice to spin after the main session. This can be anything you like, for any reason – the more out there the better.
It’s about meeting fellow music lovers, talking about the great records of the past and predicting upcoming future classics.
The bar’s open throughout and we’re selling Veggie Chilli for just £3 a bowl.
Doors open 12pm, session starts at 12.30pm.
