The Prince Podcast – Madhouse Albums Review

From the vault episode...

On January 21,1987 Paisley Park/Warners Bros records released the debut album by a band called Madhouse.  Simply titled '8', the album was an instrumental jazz/funk affair. The 1st single '6' hit the top 5 of the Billboard Hot black singles chart. Tho Prince is not mentioned on the album, he in fact wrote and plays all the instruments expect the horn and flute parts, which are preformed by Eric Leeds. A 2nd album titled '16' was released within the same year. Michael Dean, Big Ken and BigSexy review both albums.

I’M NOT SAYING THIS JUST 2 B NASTY-THE LEGACY OF 1999

1999 cover

1999 is the fifth album released by Prince. It was released on October 27, 1982 and was his  first top ten album on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. The album peaked at number 9 and became the fifth best-selling album of 1983. This album is the last of the raw and dirty Prince funk sound. Yes, he was still “dirty” afterwards but never this raw. From the sexually charged LITTLE RED CORVETTE and DELIRIOUS; the F the rules party anthem DMSR, the “activity” that takes place about halfway thru both LADY CAB DRIVER and INTERNATIONAL LOVER his sound was never quite the same after this. It all seems so effortless and not forced. This Prince at his synth pop/funk nasty best. Even the album cover is raunchy. Don’t believe me check out the 1 in the 1999. Although he would reach the apex of stardom 2 years later the nastiness was all mostly but gone. On a side note at age 11 in February 83 to be exact the first time I wore my tour shirt (the album cover) to school I got in trouble. I cannot imagine why!

SIGN “☮” THE TIMES MESSED WITH MY MIND -THE GREATEST PRINCE ALBUM

sign big cover

I am often asked what is the best Prince album of all time. Out of  all of his albums without pause or hesitation my reply is SIGN "☮" THE TIMES which was released March 31, 1987. The album yielded three top ten hits, the most from Prince since 1984. Though its sales were modest the album was universally applauded by critics and has been cited as his greatest work. For me the work is a musical kaleidoscope of ideas.
