5.0 out of 5 stars Classic aftershow with great sound quality, 6 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure if amazon should be selling this, as it's actually a bootleg, but I am very glad they are! This is one of the greatest aftershow gigs from the Lovesexy tour in 1988 when Prince was at his absolute peak, it's brilliant & I played it to death on a dodgy cassette back in the day and this MP3 download has pretty superb sound quality which took me aback - it's better than his few official live recordings which are pretty patchy.This is the one of the closest instances we are going to get to a truly great Prince live recording (as he seems unable or unwilling to release one from his huge vault) in this quality anyway, so whoever is responsible for it, bravo! I suggest you buy it before it gets removed...it's amazing to think that the stunning music on this was made by the same person who recorded the execrable "Hit & Run" this year, ah well once he was one of the greatest musicians of the time and this recording demonstrates that in spades.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEFINITIVE CD OF ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL SOUL MEN, 21 May 2001
This CD will make you instantly forget he is now known as Chef from "South Park" & to remember that he is in fact one of the very greatest soul artists. Just listen to the tracks on this & you will see just how hugely influential his sound & style has been. Right away you will probably notice that almost every other track on this collection has been sampled in the past decade, for example:"Ike's Mood 1" used by Massive Attack, "Walk on By" used by Wu Tang Clan, "I Can't Turn Around" is the basis of the house tune "Love Can't Turn Around" & "Ike's Rap 2" used by Portishead & Tricky etc...the list goes on. Oh yes, it also includes a little track called "Shaft". The music on this CD is up there with the classic 70's soul music of Marvin Gaye, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder & Curtis Mayfield...buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars "RAVE" CD NOT MUCH COP...BUT THIS MAKES UP FOR IT!, 9 Jun. 2000
If you accept that this is not a groundbreaking live show like "Sign o the Times" this is one hell of a great music video & although his new music has definitely declined this shows as a live performer he is still one of the greatest! This contains some of his best guitar-work & watch out for his playing on keyboards, bass(& drums!)also great guest appearances from Larry Graham, Maceo Parker, Rosie Gaines & The Time...all on top form...even Lenny Kravitz is good in this! .Unusual choice of tunes at times though there is some incredible jamming...but did he have to change the lyrics to "The Cross"? Anyhow, let it be said don't give up on the man yet as this gig really shows he can still more than cut it & is a rare treat in these days of Brittany & boy-bands;Real music played by great musicians with real soul power. Check it out.
