I have heard this one before, but it is nice to hear it in better quality. It is not the most fleshed out song ever, but a nice little funky ditty for sure!

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

Not the track I was most looking forward to on this set but still nice and great to hear in this quality. On the other hand it has led me to listening to Interantional Lover (Take 1), again. music

RIP sad

As I am now deep down into post NWA pre The Chronic West Coast Hip Hop this is exactly the tune I was looking for. I've heard alot of Zapp sampling (Especially South Central Madness, 1991 album). This song is in the same vein. I adore this track yes

THAT is a mighty righteous track! It sounds so pristine. I can't wait to hear "Extraloveable" and "Lust U Always" in that level of sound quality! Those two are my favorites from that time period. Damn, I'm stoked!!! Merry frickin' Christmas to me!

cool

Hi-yo Silver, it's The Bone Ranger!

I hate it when they make a big deal out of a track that's mediocre, at best.

I actually hate it more when people downplay something somebody else does when they damn well know they don't have the talent nor skillset to do it themselves...

The track is fantastic IMO. Next time though, don't speak for anyone other then yourself when making broad statements of opinion.

What the fuck is your problem? Obviously, I am speaking for myself. It's called an opinion.

I know "Uptown Funk" is pretty famous for jacking the Minneapolis sound, but am I the only one that thinks the groove sounds identical to this? This is missing the overall denser production and James Brown-jacked swagger, but... same groove.

I've always thought this was a lesser-track, and its easy to see why it was never included on a released album. It's clearly not as strong or interesting as any released song on 1999 (or any 80s album spare maybe Batman). Still, it's nice to have in this quality and I appreaciate the bass and the catchy 'hey, hey' vocals.

The definition of a fun throwaway, in my opinon, which I'm sure there are a lot of in the vault. And with two discs of unreleased songs, one or two of these won't depreacate the set.

The tape box shows the title as "Don't let him fool You" . Why is it listed "fool ya"?

Presumably that's how the song ended up being registered.

This sounds like Dirty Mind and not like 1999 era lol either the tape was mislabeled, or he just returned to that raw sound. I mean Irresistible Bitch sounds more organic than the 1999 album, so it could be possible. But my bet is that it was mislabeled

Can you imagine it randomly show up on the Batman album?

I don't think there's any mislabeling here. To my ears there's a fidelity to this track that indicates it is indeed from the Kiowa Home Trail studio versus the more rudimentary conditions that Dirty Mind was created under in Orono.

To be fair, you are comparing a remastered outtake to an original master album from 1980. The song sounds exactly like all the DM material and it would not surprise me if this actually had nothing to do with 1999.

  • There's some similarities. But the song was indeed recorded during the summer of '82 (likely August). Don Batts engineered this song.
  • The only time a situation like this happened, it was for "Kiss Me Quick". We all thought it was recorded in '81, but because of its resemblance with material from the "Prince" album, we had some doubts. Turns out that it was actually very likely to be recorded in '79. So we can affirm this idea with this song.

I wish someone from the estate would research what studio songs have already been released as boots and put out a vault album of tracks that have never been in circulation, except as snippets. Really they would only need to check the work and the blast from the past collections. If a song is not on either one of those-release it. Except for the clown song.
