Wendy's memory on Sirius XM

I'm sure I'm not the only one that noticed Wendy referred to Moonbeam Levels as a 1999 B-side. Also, when talking about America, she thought it closed out the Parade album. I feel Lisa knew the correct info but since Wendy's the alpha Lisa kind of lays back and lets Wendy take the lead in conversations often. Everyone gets a fuzzy memory especially when your in your 20's and so much is going on at once, but boy do I feel like a Prince nerd wanting to correct an actually collaborator/ band member.

Or it could be there was so much going on at the time of these recordings, and Prince was constantly changing album formations, that she's remembering how he might have mentioned what songs were going where, but then changed them on the actual debuts.

On Sheila's playlist she didn't know if I Wish U Heaven video was filmed during the SOTT tour or Lovesexy tour.

Yeah and Paul Peterson was doing an interview a few months back or so, and the guy said "Your Bass on Jill Jones For Love is great" and he said " I played on that? Oh that's where it ended up, Prince was putting things and taking things and rearranging shit left and right all through his career but especially that era

She just mispook about America, she names it as 1984 too. Remember they also recorded entire records that didn't come out. Her memory is fine, she's just talking off the top of her head.

Wendy will actually say "Lisa would you answer this one?" during interviews, but Lisa doesn't always have things like dates nailed down. It's not a pop quiz, when they're sharing new details about the music and their relationship with Prince, why are we hung up on discography dates any fan can google?

because he did not get credited they were jamming in the studio then all of a sudden it turned up on the album. Paul's interview is up on YouTube in two parts, he did not say yes or no but the very informed interviewers who asked real questions not these BS questions others ask. Paul is a genuine guy have met him twice and talked with a bunch the last few months, and I doubt he really is looking to make up stories about a song from an out of print album that only a handful of people know. It's not like he said I was the bassist on Stairway to heaven or something like that.

I'm not saying he is fronting, if anything the quote sounds like he iddn't even know himself.

..

I had never herad it before but I looked on Prince Vault and it says he played on it uncredited.

Most of them hardly knew when they were jamming that prince was taking things down and memorizing and using bits and pieces. That's what I have gotten from hearing people like Paul Peterson and revolution members also even Morris day that everyone was doing something and didn't know what was going where. Paul knew the bass part he just didn't realize till this interview he never got credit on the album, at the end of the question he looks towards the camera and says "Jill come on let me know if I did"

ladygirl99

Also when she did a podcast on celebrating Around the World in a Day, 25 years, she said she and Lisa did their album White Flags of Winter Chimneys in 2015.

I was like whoa. The album was actually made around 2008 and they did it during the writers' strike because at the time Wendy and Lisa were doing Heroes, I believed.

I hope she is doing okay. I am awared her mother passed and she had been sick for awhile, her mother.

Yes, exactly. Wendy was trying to remember the dates and Lisa even stated, "well, I can't remember. You're younger than I am, so I'm sure you remember!"

I can't imagine trying to go back and remember specific dates of their recordings, live shows, etc. That's what "Prince historians" are for biggrin
