Both albums are also "out there".

And they're great.

Not according to your Casablancas-hating mates.

Art Official Age is tremendous. A brief Prince record is one to delight in.

On a similar note, figuring out what to include on a 1-disc Prince 101 mix is a nightmare.

I'm really digging it as well. Plectrumelectrum is a nice change of pace for him, but will likely wear out its welcome.

Not only do you have too much material, but some of the best tracks are longer than your average radio hit.

Gonna fill up quick.

Tentatively:



Focusing on pre-NPG/Symbol Era helped. "The Gold Standard" is such a vintage jam and perfect bridge to his more recent material that I had to include it.

Also, "I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man" ended up on another mix otherwise that would absolutely be on there.

I love that you included something from Camille.

That's some rare shit.

Starfish & Coffee is a deep cut favorite of mine. Probably would have tried to squeeze in another from the underrated Around The World In A Day, either The Ladder or Condition Of The Heart or maybe even Pop Life.

If I Was Your Girlfriend is pretty essential, I'd say. And as far as Prince's ballads go, Sometimes It Snows In April is a masterpiece.

Endorphinmachine would be a fun track to represent more modern Prince.

This Could Be Love is so good. First time I heard it thought it was some lost 90s masterpiece. Ridiculously fine for a meme-inspired song made by a 56 year old.
