    I am kinda opposite of you. I love 1999 and Purple Rain, but I like Dirty Mind less. Too dancy.

    1999 is the most tolerable set of samples I've heard. even heard a couple of samples where I wouldn't mind hearing the rest of the song. i.e, Delirious, DMSR, & All The Critics... those samples contain very little of his falsetto singing, which is a plus.
    Purple Rain: Let's Go Crazy is okay. TBO is annoying cause of that falsetto, yet I like it because of what he does with the falsetto. I like the weird vocal shit on Darling Nikki. the title song is really pretty. I've decided that this cat's music is more palatable for me w/o video. I hated the 'When Doves Cry" video, but w/o that I like the music better.
    Is there a lot of weird stuff going on with keyboards or guitar or both? seems like I heard some really interesting/strange things going on within an otherwise very commercial setting.

    ^^ just went through the Dirty Mind samples. It sounds to me like 8 singles with falsetto singing. For people that like that, it's probably a great album. I have no desire to hear more of it.

    I'm 1999% sure my wife got me the 1999 special edition CD/DVD set for Christmas.
    Been a huge fan since I was 11 or 12, still have my LPs and tapes.

    I once paid $20 to get into an after concert party. It was at some shitkicker bar, and Prince and his then-wife showed up about 2 hours late. They made a 5-second appearance on the second-floor balcony, waved, smiled and left.

    I remember someone telling me a similar story. Back in the 80's, Prince would go out and find clubs where he could keep on playing. I remember seeing a video fo him playing in some club somewhere, and after show thing, and Ron Wood was jamming with him. They were doing Miss You.

    That's how I got convinced to go by my friend, expecting to see him play. But at least she bought the beers.
