#PrinceHistory:

It’s been nearly a year since @therevolution performed three incredible, emotional shows at @firstavenue in tribute to Prince. This weekend, the band is returning one last time to the building where they recorded “Purple Rain” and filmed their breakout movie, following up their performance at Saturday’s Rock the Garden with a show in the First Avenue Mainroom. “Playing there was always important,” Prince & the Revolution drummer Bobby Z told the Star Tribune last year. “It became his marquee, and it still is today.” Everyone knows that First Avenue is the club Prince made famous. What’s interesting to remember is that Prince and the Revolution only played in the venue a handful of times, with each show making a huge impact.

Their debut performance as a band happened on the First Avenue stage on August 3, 1983. It was Wendy Melvoin’s first show with the band, and the first time they played the now-iconic songs from the Purple Rain album. Thanks to the positioning of a recording truck outside, edited versions of the songs “Baby, I’m a Star,” “I Would Die 4 U,” and “Purple Rain” that they played that night would end up on the record.

By the next time they played a public show at First Avenue, Prince and the Revolution were about to introduce the venue to the world. They took the stage for a show on Prince’s birthday on June 7, 1984, celebrating the impending release of the album and movie that they’d spent the previous eight months capturing at First Avenue and other locations. Then they came back again that August, riding high on the success of the film, and again in October 1984, when an aftershow spilled over into the neighboring 7th St. Entry.

After that, Prince and the Revolution would only play First Avenue together one more time: On August 3, 1986, as a warm-up show for their Parade Tour.

🎵Lotusflow3r - Trivia:
📌On 2 December 2009, Dreamer was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance"; the first time a Prince track has been nominated for a Grammy without being released as a promo or commercial single (other songs in the category were Beyond Here Lies Nothin' by Bob Dylan, Change In The Weatherby John Fogerty, Fork In The Road by Neil Young, and Working On A Dream by Bruce Springsteen, which won the Grammy).

🎵Lotusflow3r - Trivia:
📌Feel Better, Feel Good, Feel Wonderful is incorrectly listed as Feel Good, Feel Better, Feel Wonderful on the Target CD packaging. The Lotusflow3r 3CD set sold 168,000 unit in the USA within a week, which granted the album a number 2 position on The Billboard 200 album charts. The French triple pack release, issued on 7 September 2009 sold 3,375 units within a week, which enabled it to enter French charts TOP Album 200 at number 14. •

🎵MPLSound - Trivia:
📌Feel Better, Feel Good, Feel Wonderful was also seen on a tracklist for MPLSound as recently as February 2009, indicating it switched albums at a late stage. MPLSound is the second Prince album to contain a remake of a song previously-released on another Prince album. U're Gonna C Me is a re-recorded version of the One Nite Alone... track released in 2002.

🎵MPLSound - Trivia:
📌MPLSound had its own 'area' on the website Lotusflow3r.com website, containing a download of the album, a video for the song Chocolate Box, and various promotional photos. It appears that 77 Beverly Park was at one point intended for MPLSound, given its mention in the spoken word segment of Ol' Skool Company, which mentions the other MPLSound tracks in their order of appearance on the album.

🎵Lotusflow3r - Trivia:
📌The Lotusflow3r.com download version, released 5 days prior to the Target CD version, contained the track The Morning Afterinstead of Crimson And Clover. As a result, no recording credits are available for Crimson And Clover, as credits are only available for the online version of the album. Lotusflow3r had its own 'area' on the lotusflow3r.com website, containing a download of the album, a video for the song Crimson And Clover, various promotional photos, and the video globe commonly marketed as the central feature of the website.

📌Prince played an unprecedented three shows in one night at The LA Live Nokia Center with three different bands: The Nokia Theater(with select members of the 3121 band), The Conga Room with Michael B. and Sonny T., and Club Nokia with select members of the One Nite Alone... Tour band. French press advert published in Le Monde to promote the album.

🎵Lotusflow3r - Promotion:
📌The album did not produce any singles, but Prince promoted the album with a Target commercial (using the song Dreamer), as well as various TV appearances and one-off shows. There was no full tour to support this album, however. The album reached number 2 on The Billboard 200, and number 1 on both the Billboard Top R&B/Hip Hop Albumschart and the Billboard Independent Albums chart, perhaps due in part to the sale of three CDs together for the low retail price of $11.98.

🎵MPLSound - Recording process:
📌The rest of the tracks (Chocolate Box, Dance 4 Me, Here, Valentina, Better With Time, Ol' Skool Company and No More Candy 4 U) were likely recorded in 2008 or early 2009. Other than a brief rap appearance by Q-Tip on Chocolate Box, all vocals and instruments on the album were performed by Prince.

🎵Lotusflow3r - Recording process:
📌Little is known about the recording dates for the album. Prince stated around the time of release that some tracks stem from the sessions for the album 3121. The tracks featuring Michael B. and Sonny T., From The Lotus..., Colonized Mind, Love Like Jazz, Wall Of Berlin and ...Back 2 The Lotus, are likely to be from this time, recorded in late 2005. Some lyrics from ...Back 2 The Lotus are sampled in the track 3121, corroborating this further. •

🎵Lotusflow3r / 🎵MPLSound - Promotion:
📌A 30-second Target commercial was filmed and broadcast, with Prince playing a portion of Dreamer as the 3CD set was announced. Prince played three consecutive nights on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno: 25 March 2009, 26 March 2009, and 27 March 2009.

🎵Lotusflow3r - Recording process:
📌Additionally, Támar Davis appears on 4ever and Colonized Mind, suggesting they were recorded between 2005 and Summer 2006. A clip of Feel Better, Feel Good, Feel Wonderful was streamed by the NPG Music Club in June 2006, stating it was a work-in-progress, suggesting it was recorded around that time (although the album version is a different recording). Boom, Crimson And Clover, 77 Beverly Park, $ and Dreamerare assumed to have been recorded in 2008, but this is unconfirmed, and some tracks may have been recorded earlier.

@prince , the New Power Generation, and the Paisley Park soundstage star in this 1991 video for "Gett Off," which has recently been added to the official Prince YouTube channel.

As Prince eyes the dynamic duo of Robia LaMorte (who stars as "Diamond") and Lori Elle (who plays the part of "Pearl"), the original members of the NPG lay down an incredible groove and a sexy, Caligula-esque scene plays out all around the room.

The "Gett Off" video was directed by @randeestnicholas , who had previously only shot still photography. At this year's Celebration 2017, Randee recalled being nervous about directing a music video and that she was coaxed into the project by Prince himself, who was a fan of her work. Like so many of the creative people he worked with, Prince clearly saw something special in Randee and guided her down a path she never could have predicted; the next video she directed was for none other than Whitney Houston ("I'm Every Woman"), and she has since directed iconic videos for Britney Spears, Baby Face, Carrie Underwood, and Alison Krauss, just to name a few.

Starting with this video, Randee St. Nicholas and Prince would work together many times throughout Prince's career. In 2007, they collaborated on the book 21 Nights, which documented Prince's historic 21-night run of shows at London's O2 Arena.

#PaisleyParkHistory:

As we pause today in remembrance of the events of September 11th, 2001, we also reflect on the importance of this day in 1987.
September 11, 1987 was a huge day for Prince. Not only was he set to perform on the @mtv @vmas , but back home in Chanhassen his new recording studio and creative compound, @officialpaisleypark , was hosting its grand opening.

By this point Paisley Park was already a hotbed of activity. The studios were buzzing with activity from @sheilaedrummer and @prince 's jazz side project, Madhouse, and the soundstage had been used to film a music video for the Jets' "Cross My Broken Heart" and scenes from Prince's concert film, "Sign O' The Times." The day before the grand opening, Paisley Park was visited by worldwide ambassadors and trade emissaries, who were in town to participate in the opening of the Minnesota World Trade Center, which also occurred on September 11, 1987. "For almost an hour they toured the place, gawking at everything from purple carpeting and violet lounge chairs to computerized digital keyboards and a basketball hoop the rocker put up for recreational use," reported the @startribune .
Paisley Park's grand opening weekend kicked off on Friday, September 11 with a black-tie gala, with $40 tickets benefiting the Minnesota Motion Picture and Television Board. The entertainment for the night was a staging of @themuppets Babies Live!, which had been holding rehearsals for their upcoming tour in the soundstage. Can you imagine? Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, Animal, and Rowlf, all parading around the Paisley Park stage to entertain the rows of renowned guests seated at banquet tables before them.

The opening festivities continued throughout the weekend with a trade show in the soundstage, which was part of the Connections '87 film, video and recording conference. By the end of the weekend, Paisley Park had established itself industry-wide as the most cutting-edge new studio complex in the country.
