Prince - His First Album
Before anyone was partying like it was 1999, with a dirty mind, while driving a little red Corvette, and getting drenched by purple rain – there was this record. I bought this album in 1980, it was released in 1979 (the year I graduated high school), and Prince was all of 20 (21 when the record was released) when he made this record single-handedly. The back cover (this photo) states, “Produced, arranged, composed, (mixed) and performed by Prince.” Chaka Khan covered I Feel for You – but the original version here is killer. I also like the cut Still Waiting.
