    Raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he achieved international stardom. The nine track, 35-minute album features a previously unreleased home studio cassette recording of Prince at his piano captured in 1983. Includes 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”. Essential!

    N.B. the LP + CD version is a hardback, gatefold deluxe format that includes a 12” booklet featuring brand new liner notes written by Prince’s then engineer Don Batts, as well as candid shots of Prince including never before seen photos.
