Prince was not my favorite artist. But…
I probably saw Purple Rain a half dozen times; at the drive-in no less. With a bunch of friends. Those were good times.
Purple Rain was (is) a great record! And I still have a copy! Yes. Vinyl. Which by the way, is superior to CDs; and anything digital. I like some of his songs, and I think he’s overlooked as a guitar player.
I think I’ve said it every year since his Super Bowl performance; he put on the best show ever. No one’s come close. Most are gawdy, overdone, embarrassments, even when I like the artist. I’m glad the NFL posted the whole show.
Ain’t It the Truth!
