Prince - The Early Years

The new Prince album is probably not going to be on ITunes because of the small split that the artist gets from these downloads. Prince ditched the music companies over a decade ago and now owns and distributes his own stuff. He gets to keep the majority of the money although he also gets a lot less exposure. Presumably, he is still making more now than he did before with Warner Bros hocked his stuff for him.


OH MY GOODNESS!!! For years, I've past on this because his first two Warner Bros. albums ('For You' in 1978 and 'Prince' in 1979), compared to the rest of his vast catalog, are tepid at best; solid outings, but probably the least listened to amongst most fans. However, when one does given them a listen, you realize his gifted talent even way back then. My gut feeling about this release had always been that this one would be even paler than the aforementioned titles since it came before and wouldn't be as polished in production. Also, I had the impression that 94 East was someone else's project and that Prince was only playing the guitar. It turns out on these tracks, like with the majority of his work, he's the whole band too! What's so amazing about it is that it's so far ahead of his first two albums in sound and scope. After one listen of this, I was left wondering why he toned it down on those releases. This is a MUST HAVE for collectors of his music. Highly recommended!!!


I won't date myself and say how many years I've waited for this to be released again, but I too had the original tape called "Minneapolis Genius 94 East". I played it to death and am happy to finally see it released on iTunes. It sounds much cleaner then my old tape did. Thanks iTunes and thanks Prince for giving us so much great music!
