3. 🎵My Love Is Forever:
📌In 1976-1977, Prince re-wrote some of the lyrics, and recorded the song at Sound 80 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, under the title My Love Is Forever prior to signing a contract or beginning work on the album. A tape with some of the other tracks (Just As Long As We're Together and the Jelly Jam portion as first at fifth track with Baby, Soft And Wet, ...

3. 🎵The Arsenio Hall Show:
📌The original series was produced and distributed by Paramount Domestic Television and taped at Stage 29 at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. The second series was shot at Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood and was produced by Tribune Broadcasting, Octagon Entertainment, and Eye Productions; it was distributed by CBS Television Distribution.

3. 🎵The Voice - Recording Process:
📌... before lead vocals by Mavis Staples were overdubbed in late 1989 (a remix by Ricky Peterson was made in 1992 for its inclusion on The Voice). A Man Called Jesus was recorded in late December 1988, with saxophone by Candy Dulfer added in July 1989, and lead vocals by Mavis Staples added in Summer 1992.

3. 🎵The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale:
📌... at the same time as Chaos And Disorder, but released three years later, shortly before Prince's new major label release on a competing label, Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic (as O(+>). The album was released under the name Prince due to the time period in which the tracks were recorded (although both It's About That Walk and Sarah were recorded after his name change to O(+>).

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. 🎵Gett Off (single):
📌The track it replaced on the album, Horny Pony, became the b-side of the single. The maxi-single released included three tracks which are largely based on Gett Off, but can be considered songs in their own right: Violet The Organ Grinder, Gangster Glam and Clockin' The Jizz (Instrumental), as well as a slew of remixes by Prince and other remixers (some of which were given different names in different countries).

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.

3. 🎵God:
📌Basic tracking for God (Love Theme From Purple Rain) took place on 7 February 1984 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (the same day as the version of Father's Song and Wendy & Lisa 'rehearsal' version of Purple Rain used in Purple Rain). The vocal version, God, was recorded six months later, on 19 August 1984, at the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

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.

2. 🎵The Max:
📌... Minnesota, on 31 December 1991, but further work was done on the track, and a rap added by Tony M., in early 1992. It was included as the seventh track (fifth song) on March 1992, and late-Summer, 1992, configurations of the album, until many of the album's segues were removed for release.

2. 🎵Crimson And Clover:
📌... and also includes (uncredited) portions of Wild Thing by The Wild Ones (written by Chip Taylor, from the 1965 album The Arthur Sound, but made more famous in 1966 by The Troggs), incorporated into the chorus.
Recording dates and studio are unknown, but it is likely the track was recorded in August 2008 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California.

2. 🎵The Dance Electric:
📌Basic tracking for Prince's initial version took place on 17 August 1984 (a days before The Screams Of Passion) at the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota (listed on the album as "Paisley Park Recording, Somewhere in Minnesota"). It seems likely that Lisa, Wendy & Jill recorded overdubs on it several days later, also at the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse.

2. 🎵Welcome 2 America: Euro 2011 Tour - 2011 – Zürich, Switzerland: Hallenstadion:
📌After that the usual video loop of Prince and Minneapolis associated artist started playing. For Cool ( incl. Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough) some 20 fans were on stage dancing. For The Bird there were another 30, growing up to 60 for the ensuing Jungle Love.

📌... with approximately 1,000 of the available tickets sold, the upper rings (seated) and VIP boxes also became available - at slightly elevated prices, upping the total capacity 4,212 for the show. An hour long rehearsal was done on Friday 16 August at 20:30, with several takes on Even Flow and other instrumentals played. It is unclear if Prince was present for this.
