MOST RECENT

I recently purchased my favorite Prince album. You can't find this gem on Spotify or YouTube. You have to venture into that old- school territory. I'm talking about your friendly neighborhood record shop. I recommend this album to any God fearing man or woman who has an appetite for Prog-Jazz. The Artist definitely gave his best! #prince #therainbowchildren

2. 🎵The New Power Generation:
📌On the 1990 soundtrack album Graffiti Bridge there is also a song dubbed New Power Generation, but at the time it is not attributed to Prince's backing band per se. Like he did with The Revolution previously, Prince coupled his name with "The New Power Generation" on his two next albums.

3. 🎵The Family - Evolution:
📌After having Paul Peterson and Susannah overdub the lead vocals, all tracks were submitted to Clare Fischer for orchestral overdubs, which was the first time Prince worked with him. Susannah suggested to ask him to create orchestral arrangements, being familiar with Fischer's work through her father, session musician Mike Melvoin.

3. 🎵The New Power Generation - Contributions - Studio - With Prince:
📌Although The NPG band members have contributed to more than the following
releases, they were cited as being part of a limited number of albums and singles.
After 1992, even though Prince would work with The NPG (full band or shortened) as studio musicians, he would not usually let the name of his band appear as prominently as before on the covers of his albums.

4. 🎵The Family - Evolution:
📌A live version of the band with Miko Weaver, who came from Sheila E.'s band on guitar, Alan Flowers on bass, Bill Carrothers and another Melvoin sibling Jonathan on keyboards and former bodyguards Wally Safford and Greg Brooks as dancers and background vocalists, played one show at First Avenue, before the group was disbanded. Jerome Benton, Wally Safford and Greg Brooks together with Miko Weaver and Eric Leeds then joined an expanded version of The Revolution in early 1986.

2. 🎵The Family - Evolution:
📌While the band in the studio was essentially Prince alone with Eric Leeds on sax (in a way exactly how Madhouse started out in late 1986), a band was soon made up of the three members of The Time that were still in Prince's employ, and fronted by Wendy Melvoin's twin sister Susannah, whom until then sometimes sang background vocals for Prince.
