Prince-Crystal Ball-Everything You Ever Wanted From Him,
By A Customer
This review is from: Crystal Ball [Jewel Case] (Audio CD)
Right, where do you start with this cd!?Covering the majority of Prince's many up's and down's, this cd collection is probably the-must have-, if you can get your hands on it(which aint that easy).Starting off with the sheer brilliance, and(it has to be said)wierdness, of the first track-Crystal Ball, you are transformed into a world where he makes the rules, and if you don't like them, or you aint that keen on what he has to say-tough!-u bought it-u better enjoy!, and enjoy you will.The first cd is probably the highlight of the collection-including gems such as Acknowledge Me, Hide the Bone, and Movie Star.Next up cd2-again, starting with a bang-we get Interactive(surely a contendor for Funk of the decade!)Moving on thru' the jazz of Calhoun Square, and screaming beauty of Crucial-we come to a track which you are either gonna love, or hate-Cloreen Baconskin.It dates from around 1983, and in my personal opinion, is THE funniest thing I have ever heard-Prince rapping over a non-stop beat-absoloutely hilarious!Till we reach the end of this cd, with Strays Of The Wild.Next up with cd3, we start with a live version of Days Of Wild-if the kids are listenin, better put ear phones on them, cuz it gets kinda dirty!!Movin on thru the sheer Funk up that is 18+over, onto a great slowed down, mellow version of Pussy Control, till the final track Goodbye.

Yes, this is an absolute treasure of Prince 'bootlegs'. There is nothing else that sounds like these CDs.
