Some Sunday Funky Soul

Marvin Gaye had been scheduled to appear here today
However, I'm sure that even Marvin would be happy to temporarily give way to Prince
Like a few others who have posted tributes I was never really his greatest fan. I was probably slightly too old and mostly into other types of music at the time.
But like everyone else I would like to acknowledge his genius, his musicianship (witness the guitar playing on this clip from The Swede) and his influence on many who followed.

Nothing more to say really - everything that needs to be said has already been said

Prince - My Name is Prince

Prince -Raspberry Beret (12" Version)


  1. Damn!! This extended "Raspberry Beret" is just w0nDerFul!!! I think I woke up the neighbors. Okay. That's the way to wake up on this beautiful Sunday. I think I I think I I think I luv ya! Thanks u CC!!!!! Gotcha!! The Prince.

  2. That's "Hotcha" not "Gotcha". You think spellcheck would keep up...geeze.

  3. His name is Prince. And he is funky. His name is Prince. The one and only.
    The. One. And. Only.
    Godspeed o purple one.

  4. Great stuff, The Swede has some footage of a rather fine tribute by The E Street Band over at his bit.

  5. The 12" 'Raspberry Beret' really is a treat.

  6. That 12" of Raspberry beret is great
