Description

Recorded in 1983 at Prince''s Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, MN & engineered by Don Batts, Piano & A Microphone 1983 is a nine track, 35-minute album features a previously unreleased home studio cassette recording of Prince at his piano. The private rehearsal provides a rare, intimate glimpse into Prince s creative process as he worked through songs which include 17 Days and Purple Rain (neither of which would be released until 1984), a cover of Joni Mitchell''s A Case Of You, Strange Relationship (not released until 1987 on his critically acclaimed Sign O'' The Times album), and International Lover. The album also includes a rare recording of the 19th Century spiritual Mary Don''t You Weep, featured during the end credits of Spike Lee''s BlacKkKlansman. For fans of Prince s spontaneous live medleys, tracks 1-7 of the album are presented in that same format as they were originally recorded.

I am a Prince fan but not a Prince aficionado. That means I am not someone who chased Prince bootlegs or participated in Prince message boards when he was living. I was content to wait for studio releases in the Warner Brothers era.

I was happy to hear that efforts were being made to preserve and release his songs and albums from the infamous vault. Piano & A Microphone doesn''t disappoint at all--it''s a great early entry for the many, many releases that are sure to follow.

I call this "Piano Bar Prince" because listening to it makes me think of undiscovered talent at a Frenchmen Street jazz bar in New Orleans. He''s just jamming, churning out songs we all know with new arrangements and others songs we don''t know. It''s great, and also jarring. You''re hearing early talent from a man you know is now dead. He lived up to his potential and only showed us his best in life, but even his demos are scaled back genius.

The album makes me miss Prince even more. And it makes me grateful that we walked this earth at the same time.

Since Prince died in 2016 all we''ve gotten is.......well, a hits compilation, a remastered and expanded "Purple Rain", "Anthology 1995-2010" and now "Piano & a Microphone 1983". Really? I mean, really? That''s it? Over two years later and that''s all anyone can offer fans of Prince?

Don''t get me wrong, I enjoyed the "4ever" two disc compilation, but I already had most of the music on there as a fan. I liked the remastered and expanded "Purple Rain" but want more than that, like a remastered and expanded "Sign ''O'' the Times" amongst other older Prince albums.

And so here we have the ''first'' compilation of ''unreleased'' Prince music from his alleged ''vault'' of treasures. Turd. Like I really wanted nine songs of Prince noodling about in his studio on a piano. Garbage. Really. I don''t know how anyone here has given this four or five stars. I felt there was absolutely nothing to hear here. It was like if I sat down at my own piano and noodled about. Would anyone really want to hear that? No. People (fans included) want to hear the ''good stuff''. What is that? For me, the ''good stuff'' was getting 20 b-sides back in 1993 on Prince''s 3 disc "The Hits" compilation. That, I found satisfying. Where''s that stuff Warner Bros.? Hmm? I know Prince must have finished product lying around in that mythical ''vault''.

With "Piano & a Microphone" I learned nothing. The only song I might have enjoyed was "Cold Coffee & Cocaine". Why? Simple. It was the most complete sounding song here, and it showcased Prince''s sense of humor. In fact, I was reminded of "Bob George" and "Cloreen Baconskin" (which also happened to be recorded in 1983).

Dear Warner Bros. and Prince estate holders, I want the good stuff. "Piano & a Microphone" is NOT the GOOD stuff. You could have released this album 10 years from now, after you release all the good stuff.

That being said, at the cost of alienating many a Prince fan, what I really want from the vault is the good stuff from Prince''s most creative years--1978-1995. After that, I have to say, I''m not really interested. I''m not really interested in 1996-2015 because, in my not-so-humble-opinion, those years were radically mediocre Prince years.

What would satisfy me? Okay, how about the next thing you release is a box set of all of Prince''s Warner Bros. albums digitally remastered and expanded 1978-1995--that means "For You" through "The Gold Experience", but if you tossed in "Chaos & Disorder" (1996) I wouldn''t balk. This box set should be done the way David Bowie''s box sets recently have been done where you get the albums digitally remastered, but then 1-2 discs of the singles and b-sides remastered on separate discs. You could do it all in one enormous box set, or you could break it into several box sets. You have to include just about everything from 1978-1995/1996--b-sides, demos, unreleased tracks, The Black Album, Batman, Graffiti Bridge, etc. Everything 1978-1996. The ENTIRE Warner Bros. era. Even The Beautiful Experience EP in 1994. Physical merchandise please! No digital download stuff like "Anthology 1995-2010". In fact, you could do each album individually like how Paul McCartney has been doing his back catalogue.

This previously unreleased collection of Prince material is essential listening for any artist, no matter his or her discipline, for it is a glimpse at then-works-in-progress, at the bare bones before flesh was added. Here we get to examine one minute and twenty-six seconds of the gestation of what would eventually be christened one of Mr. Nelson''s masterworks “Purple Rain.” We are ghosts, standing over the composer''s shoulder as he pieces together what would inevitably become one of his smoothest, funkiest tracks “17 Days.” The collection is also further proof that even a brilliant mind produces nothing meaningful without also putting in the work—that “Purple Rain” developed into a three movement opus from such rudimentary beginnings is indication that the Artist spent many nights and days transforming an idea into an unforgettable piece of art comparable, I believe, to Beethoven''s 9th. And there are fun moments too, such as in “Coffee and Cocaine,” where Prince briefly struggles to find a noun to rhyme with “house,” deciding on “mouse,” and then poking fun at himself for selecting so obvious and so ridiculous a word, “kind of cheesy.” The record''s highlight, however, is unquestionably “International Lover,” where Prince confirms something I''ve long suspected common to great artists: the ability to know when never to do too much. The final version of “International Lover” is very close to what it was from the start—mainly a voice, a piano, and a Prince. Luckily for us, Mr. Nelson trusted both his instincts and his ears.

This is a nice CD to listen to. I''m sure most Prince fans have heard these recording in bootlegged versions. Having said that, the quality is fine with this production. Only a couple of songs are full versions (for the most part, maybe not word for word) the others are more like interludes with improvised piano playing and singing of some of the verses. The best song by far on this CD is "17 Days". It''s a great, stripped down rendition by Prince. While listening to this CD, it is amazing to know that Prince was only around 25 when it was recorded, and so much of his amazing career had yet to come. But even at 25, he had accomplished so much already. You won''t regret owning this CD and adding it to your library. Enjoy!

This isn''t that.
The sound isn''t studio album quality but it''s quite good. The piano chords push the tape definition a bit.
The performance is stellar. 17 days and Mary are side A highlights.
The best thing is that it exposes his process of working through things in an improvisational way. If you''ve seen the man, you know how virtuosic his playing is. That''s on display.
This is the only official release that puts on display the Prince that we could only previously find via Kiss The Stone, etc.

Buy it. You won''t regret it.

The things you need to know: This is an official release of a cassette recording made by Prince back in 1983 of him basically messing around on the piano. It hasn''t been remastered or remixed at all, so there''s background hiss, you hear him giving instructions to whoever it is that is recording him, the sound fades at one point due to a flaw on the cassette, and you can hear Prince sniffing as he plays. This isn''t something he would have released himself but was instead recorded for personal use. It''s also short - 30-odd minutes, that''s all. I''ve been a huge Prince fan since I first heard his music back in 1983, and since then I''ve seen him play live countless times, bought everything I could lay my hands on, and still grieve for him today. One thing I didn''t do though was seek out unofficial releases, sold at record fairs and the likes, or more recently found online, so I''d never heard this set before, and didn''t even know of its existence. For me, this was all new. As much as I loved his music I felt that since about 1990 he lost much of his spark, which he only regained when he played live. On record he overproduced himself, putting layer upon layer of keyboards on many tracks, buffing out any rough edges, often killing great songs stone dead in the process. When he was on stage though we heard those edges, and the songs came back to life. I was delighted to hear this recording because it is unpolished. You can hear that roughness, the flaws in the sound, and it''s all so intimate. I listened to it the first time on headphones, and it felt like I was there in a room with him, listening to him play on a nearby piano. It feels startlingly real, and natural. I wish he''d released more stuff like this when he was alive. The album is essentially split into two halves. The first section (forming side 1 of the vinyl) is a medley. Some songs are played almost or in full, and others - noticeably "Purple Rain" - are a fragment, a part of a verse. It''s thrilling to hear him move from song to song, not pausing between them, and the styles shift from the poppy stomp of When Doves Cry B-side "17 Days", to the bluesy "Mary Don''t You Weep". At the end of the section you hear Prince ask the person recording to turn the tape over, and if you''re listening on vinyl you flip the disk. The second half consists of two longer tracks, "Cold Coffee and Cocaine" sounds like a song written for The Time, and Prince sings it in a strangulated voice. It''s a fun and amusing track. "Why The Butterflies" is inspired by Jill Jones (she says so in the sleeve notes) and is a long, quiet track with sparse vocals. If you buy the deluxe edition, the packaging is like a hardback book. Inside you''ll find a heavyweight vinyl copy of the album, a large booklet with sleeve notes notably from Lisa Coleman and Jill Jones, a black & white print, and the album on CD. There isn''t a download code for an MP3 version. Should it have been a bonus disk with something else? Should it have been released at all? Would he have wanted the world to hear him like this? We could argue about such questions forever. But for this Prince fan, I absolutely love this record, and it''s my favourite Prince album since 1988.

Ich bin seit vielen Jahren ein großer Bewunderer dieses Künstlers. Ich hatte das große Glück, ihn mehrmals live zu erleben, habe alle offizielle und auch einige inoffizielle Veröffentlichungen. Sein Tod hat mich brutalst getroffen. Seine künstlerischen Entscheidungen haben mich jahrzehntelang begleitet und beeinflusst. Was er wann und wie veröffentlicht hat, welches Video er wo gepostet und warum wieder entfernt hat, welche Tour und welches Konzert als nächstes kommt, war ein wichtiger Teil meines Lebens. Dabei hatte ich immer sehr großen Respekt vor seinem Willen. Welcher Künstler hat schon so genau die Kontrolle über sein Werk? Daher tue ich mich etwas schwer mit den Dingen, die seit dem 21. April 2016 veröffentlicht werden. Wenn ich mir vorstelle, jemand würde nach meinem Tod meine Festplatte durchsuchen und halb angedachte Texte oder unfertige Videos oder Fotoarbeiten finden und veröffentlichen, dreht sich mir der Magen um. So geht es mir teilweise auch bei Prince. Wenn er gewollt hätte, dass diese Dinge veröffentlicht werden, hätte er es veröffentlicht. Hat er aber nicht. Nun also diese private Aufnahme von ''83. Ich habe sie mir gekauft und ich schäme mich ein wenig dafür. Denn natürlich hätte ich sehr gerne mal gelauscht, wenn er in seinem Studio sitzt und einfach so vor sich hin spielt. Das er unglaublich kreativ war, das er auch am Piano großartig war das war mir alles klar. So konnte ich der Versuchung nicht widerstehen, es mir anzuhören. Wer sich für das Phänomen "Prince" interessiert, wer verstehen will, was das für ein Künstler war, wird hier sicher fündig werden. Er hätte es niemals veröffentlicht. Ich hoffe, dass zukünftige Veröffentlichungen (wenn überhaupt) mit dem notwendigem Respekt getätigt werden. Remasterte Versionen seiner Alben mit Bonus Material (Live Versionen, Mixe, Alternative oder Roh-Versionen) wären mir willkommen. Material, das Prince selber nicht für die Veröffentlichung würdig fand, sollten da bleiben, wo sie sind. Dieses ist jetzt nun mal da und gehört für mich nun zum Gesamtwerk. Ich bin gespannt, was da noch so passiert...

Remasterte Versionen seiner Alben mit Bonus Material (Live Versionen, Mixe, Alternative oder Roh-Versionen) wären mir willkommen.
Material, das Prince selber nicht für die Veröffentlichung würdig fand, sollten da bleiben, wo sie sind.
Dieses ist jetzt nun mal da und gehört für mich nun zum Gesamtwerk.
Ich bin gespannt, was da noch so passiert...

The change in musical styles from song to siong keeps you listening. Shame it only lasts 35 minutes. That said, it''s the best 35 minutes of music I have heard released this year.
