EDITORS’ NOTES

Stepping onto the world stage in 1978, Prince was already a wildly talented soul singer with an unusual taste for hard rock riffs and future-shock keyboard hooks. His sumptuous debut, For You, blends opulent disco-era arrangements with the raw lyrics and the wildly distinctive style that would quickly define him. While it’s not as expansive or experimental as the albums that followed, For You remains a luscious collection of offbeat electro-funk (“Soft and Wet”) and steamy slow jams (“Baby”).

Prince at 19

Wow! Prince is one of my all time favorite artists. To hear his first album is so cool because he was only 19 years old when he made it. This record proves he was destined for greatness. You can see flashes of brilliance and wonderful creativity. Prince is amazing. Always has been, always will be. My favorites are “My Love is Forever”, “Crazy You” and “Just As Long As We’re Together”.

Genius

This my absolute most favorite album from Prince. Every cut on this album could stand alone as a hit maker in this day and age in my opinion. His work is timeless.. :)
