01.) "CINNAMON GIRL" 2004 Musicology second single.
Cinnamon Girl was the second single to be released from the album Musicology, released six months after the album.

Three months before the physical release, however, United States Of Division was released on the NPG Music Club Musicology Download Store as a "virtual b-side" to Cinnamon Girl, although Cinnamon Girl itself was not available as an individual download, and no promos were sent out at the time.

The single is also unusual in that the artwork and tracklisting is entirely different for the North American and European versions of the single. The North American version contains the video and a making of the video documentary, while the European version, released six weeks later, contained audio and video of a live version of Dear Mr. Man, and the track United States Of Division.

The single did not chart in the USA, but reached number 43 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart.



02.) "MUSICOLOGY" 2004 first single from album  Musicology.
Musicology was the first single to be released from the album Musicology, released two weeks after the album's retail release.

Four weeks before the physical release, however, Magnificent was released on the NPG Music Club Musicology Download Store as a "virtual b-side" to Musicology, although Musicology itself was not available as an individual download.

The b-side on the physical release, On The Couch, was also taken from the album Musicology.



03.) "DAYS OF WILD" 2002 Xenophobia Celebration.
Days Of Wild is a live single recorded on the One Nite Alone... Tour, initially given to attendees at the final night of the Xenophobia Celebration as a one-track CD single, only nine days after the recording was made, before later becoming available to purchase online and at shows as a three-track single, including a live version of 1+1+1 Is 3 (as "1+1+1=3") and two edits of Days Of Wild.

The title track had previously been available in a different live form on the Crystal Ball album, so this single is often referred to, for clarity's sake, as Days Of Wild (Live In Montreal) - this title is erroneous, however.

Although recorded on the One Nite Alone... Tour, the title track was not included on the One Nite Alone... Live! album, although the live version of 1+1+1=3 from 6 April, 2002 was, albeit in slightly longer form (and more correctly titled 1+1+1 Is 3).

Of note is that the single is credited to Prince and the New Power Generation (shortened to Prince & The NPG) - the first time a single has been co-credited to the band since 1993's The Morning Papers.

Receiving only a limited release, the single was not eligible for the charts.



04.) "THE GREATEST ROMANCE EVER SOLD" 1999 maxi single related Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic.
The Greatest Romance Ever Sold was the first single from Prince's 23rd album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, the sixth album to be credited to O(+>.

It was released five weeks prior to the album, in the USA, Europe and the UK only, and featured remixes by popular remixers Jason Nevins and The Neptunes, as well as appearances from popular rappers Eve and Q-Tip.

The single's main b-side, The Greatest Romance Ever Sold (Adam & Eve Remix) (featuring Eve), was an entirely re-recorded version of the song containing samples of the original around a rap by Prince (as O(+>) and Eve in a similar vein to many of Prince's remixes from 1994-9 (many of the lyrics from this version were later reused on Silicon).



05.) "THE TRUTH" 1997 first available through 1-800-New-Funk related The Truth album.
The Truth is the first and only single released from Prince's 21st album The Truth, his fifth album credited to O(+>. The single was sold for $15.00 directly from the 1-800-New-Funk phone service and 1800newfunk.com in February 1997 (on the same day as the album Kamasutra by The NPG Orchestra).

Both tracks were available the following year on The Truth, which had been sent to music critics at the same time this single was made available.

Because of its limited release, the single was not eligible for any charts.



06.) "THE HOLY RIVER" 1997 Emancipation related single.
The Holy River was the second commercially-released single to be released from Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third album credited to O(+> (Somebody's Somebody and Face Down were released as promotional singles on the same date).

It was released two months after the album, and was available only in the UK and Japan (in the USA, the single was only available as a promo single, with the versions of Somebody's Somebody available instead on the Somebody's Somebody promo release).

In May 1997, the Borders Books & Music chain offered a cassette single of The Holy River free with any purchase. This cassette, which featured new artwork taken from The Holy River video, contained a previously-unreleased track, Welcome 2 The Dawn (Acoustic Version), which was labeled as coming from the "4thcoming album The Dawn", which remains unreleased. The track was later included on the album The Truth, however.

Since the UK and Japanese version contain remixes of Somebody's Somebody but not of The Holy River, it is likely the Instrumental released by the NPG Music Club in 2001 was in fact created for a US maxi-single of The Holy River that did not see release.



07.) "BETCHA BY GOLLY WOW!" 1996 Emancipation related single.
Betcha By Golly Wow! was the first commercially-available single to be released from Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third credited to O(+> (Slave had been available almost a year before, but only as a cassette giveaway at a Paisley Park Studios show).

It was released two weeks after the album, and was released commercially only in the UK and Australia, while in the US it was only released as a promo.

It marked the first time that Prince had released a cover version as a single. The b-side, Right Back Here In My Arms, was also taken from Emancipation.

The single was also released with an orange slipcover sleeve in the UK containing a fold-out poster of Prince (as O(+>) in Paris, although the tracks and inside artwork were exactly the same.

The single reached number 11 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart. In the US, it reached number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay Chart, and number 10 on the Billboard R&B Airplay Chart.



08.) "DINNER WITH DELORES" 1996 Chaos and Disorder related single.
Dinner With Delores was the first and only single to be released from Prince's 18th album Chaos And Disorder, the second album to be credited to O(+>. It was released a month prior to the album, and was released commercially only in the UK, Germany and Japan, while in the USA it was only available as a promotional release.

A few days prior to the single's release, on 7 June 1996, Warner Bros. streamed the song in RealAudio format on a special website dedicated to Chaos And Disorder, www.wbr.com/chaosanddisorder, the first time a Prince track had premiered officially online. A promotional cassette was also sent to members of the 'Controversy' fan club on the same date to commemorate Prince's 38th birthday.

The single reached number 36 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart but failed to chart in the USA.



09.) "THE GOOD LIFE" 1995 Big City Remix maxi single related Exodus.
The Good Life was the second single to be released from the album Exodus (first in the USA, where the album was ultimately not released), by The New Power Generation, in North America, United Kingdom, and Europe.

The single was re-released in the UK in 1997, following the Platinum People Mix receiving a lot of airplay on Rock FM 97.4, a radio station in the NorthWest of England.

The US edition contained some of the Get Wild remixes included on the UK/European editions of the Get Wild single, which was not previously released there.

The single did not enter the charts in the USA, but reached position 29 in the UK singles charts upon its initial release. It fared better when it was re-released in 1997, reaching number 15 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart.



10.) "P. CONTROL" Pussy Control 1995 Crystal Ball digital release.
P. Control was available as a promotional single from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to O(+>, and was available a few months before the album's release.

This initial promotional release was titled Pussy Control, but the song was renamed P. Control for release. The CD also included the album recording of 319 with part of the preceding segue included in the track, bringing the track time to 3:19, marking the only appearance of this track at this length.

On 3 December 1995, an entirely different cassette single of P. Control was distributed to VIPs at the VH-1 Fashion Awards, containing two new versions of the track (Prince (as O(+>) also opened the award show, lip-synching to P. Control (House Mix), included on the cassette). P. Control (Club Mix) from the cassette was later included, in a very slight edit, on Crystal Ball.

Both versions of the single were available in limited quantities and therefore not eligible for the charts.

P. Control (a.k.a. Pussy Control) is the first track on Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, his first under the name O(+>. Earlier in 1995, however, the track (as Pussy Control) had been available as the first track on a Pussy Control promo single. In July 1995, clips of three remixes of the track were included on The Versace Experience (Prelude 2 Gold) promo cassette given to attendees of the Versace collection of Paris Fashion Week. In December 1995, a new cassette single of P. Control was given to attendees of the VH1 Fashion and Music Awards, containing two remixes of the track. In 1998, the Club Mix (now simply known as P. Control) was included as the eighth track on the third disc of Prince's 20th album Crystal Ball (his fourth under the name O(+>).

Initial tracking for the original version (known as Pussy Control) took place on 25 July 1994 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (the same day as horn overdubs on Realize). Prince premiered the song at Glam Slam, Minneapolis, MN, USA that night by playing it directly from CD during the concert. The track was included as the first track on an August 1994 configuration of The Gold Experience, and was kept as the opening track on a 13 October 1994 configuration. The song was renamed P. Control when it was added to the album due to concerns that retailers would not carry the album with a first track containing the word "Pussy" in its title. Additional recording took place at some point in 1994, but recording dates are not known. Remixes were made in 1994-5, including a version containing spoken vocals in French titled Chatounette Controlle (literally translated as "Little kitten control"), but again, recording dates are not known. Some remixes of the track were planned for inclusion on a planned The Hate Experience EP release, but it is not known which remixes, and the final release did not include any remixes of this track.

The House Mix of the track includes Prince's rap from some versions of Get Wild, and includes a musical finale reused from Mad.



11.) "GOLD" 1995 Gold Alternate Radio Mix With Guitar Solo promotional single.
Gold was the second commercial single to be released from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to O(+>. It was released two months after the album, and was released worldwide.

The previously-unreleased b-side, Rock 'N' Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis), received some press coverage as it was hastily-written and recorded as a response to Lenny Kravitz's hit song Rock And Roll Is Dead.

The single reached only number 88 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 92 on the Billboard R&B Chart. The single fared much better in the UK, where it reached number 10 on the Gallup Top 40 Singles Chart.



12.) "EYE HATE U" 1995 I Hate U Quiet Night Mix By Eric Leeds maxi single.
EYE Hate U was the first commercial single to be released from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to O(+> (The Most Beautiful Girl In The World had been released the previous year, but at the time, no album was attached to the single; P. Control and Dolphin had also received promo-only releases prior to this).

It was released two weeks prior to the album (the same day Rock 'N' Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis) was recorded), and was released worldwide. A maxi-single followed a week later. The b-side was a remix, EYE Hate U (Quiet Night Mix by Eric Leeds), which was unavailable elsewhere.

The maxi-single also contained EYE Hate U (Extended Remix), containing entirely new lyrics by Prince (as O(+>) (in the same style as Mustang Mix or The Good Life (Big City Remix). The Japanese single also contained Endorphinmachine (also taken from The Gold Experience), marking its only appearance on a single.

The single reached number 12 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 3 on the Billboard R&B Chart.

The maxi-single is often referred to as "The Hate Experience", which is written on the cover (similar to The Beautiful Experience). A planned series of "Experience" maxi-singles connected to The Gold Experience was abandoned following this single.



13.) "SPACE" 1994 Space Universal Love Remix maxi single.
Space is the second track on Prince's fifteenth album Come, and, two and a half months after the album's release, Space was released as the album's second commercially-released single, released in North America and Japan. Space was also included in the 1993 Glam Slam Ulysses stage-show, during the segment titled "The Sirens" (credited, as was the whole project, to O(+>).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in mid to late May 1993 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions that also produced Pope, Strays Of The World, What's My Name, Interactive, Solo, and a reworked version of Race), and had been recorded for consideration in the aborted Come musical. The released version (and some of the remixes) contain repeated vocal samples from Ninety-9's track 40 Ounces (containing input by Prince) - it is unknown if this sample was added immediately or at a later date. On 7 July 1993, a mostly-instrumental version was recorded by Madhouse (during the same five-hour session that produced Carnac (later renamed 17), Edward (later renamed Asswoop or Asswhuppin' In A Trunk), (Got 2) Give It Up, Parlor Games and Rootie Kazootie, all of which were intended for a third Madhouse album, 24). It was included as the third track on the album 24, but the album, and this instrumental version, remain unreleased.

Space was the second single to be commercially released from the album Come, by Prince (although, following Letitgo, Come (actually the track Poem) was released as a promo single in Germany).

It was released two and a half months after the album (only three weeks before "The Black Album" received its eventual release), and received a release in the USA and Japan only.

The album version of the song Space was included only as the b-side of the single, with Space (Universal Love Radio Remix) as the lead track. A maxi-single was released on the same day as the two-track single, containing multiple remixes of Space, all of which contained new input by Prince.

The single reached only number 71 on the US Billboard Hot R&B Singles Chart.




14.) "LETITGO" 1994 Letitgo Cavi' Street Edit maxi single.
Letitgo was the first single to be released from Prince's 15th full-length album Come. It was released a week prior to the album, and received a release around the world. The b-side, Solo, was also taken from the album.

A maxi-single was later released containing multiple remixes of Letitgo, but none were remixed by Prince or anyone employed by him (of note is that the Original Album Version fades out fully, instead of overlapping with Orgasm as on the album).

In the UK and Europe, the CD single also contained Alexa De Paris (Extended Version) which had not previously been available on CD, and Pope.

The single reached number 31 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and number 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles Chart.

The single's cover photograph, like that of the album Come, was photographed by Terry Gydesen, and taken from the book The Sacrifice Of Victor (published the same year), which documented the 1993 Act II tour; the image used for Letitgo was the same image used on the book's cover.

The single (and the album that followed) were credited to "Prince", which led to some confusion, as he had publicly changed his name to O(+> a year before, and had worldwide success with The Most Beautiful Girl In The World under his new name.

The public argument was that the tracks on this album were recorded before the name change, but in fact Letitgo was recorded in March 1994, over eight months after the name change.


Letitgo is the ninth track on Prince's fifteenth album Come, and, a week before the album's release, Letitgo was released as the album's first single, released worldwide. In 2001, a 1995 live version was released as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 2. In 2005, the same live version was included on the Live From Paisley Park download EP.

Basic tracks were recorded on 16 March 1994 at Paisley Park Studios (hours before premiering studio versions of EYE Hate U, Billy Jack Bitch, Now, Days Of Wild and a remix of Pope at a party at Glam Slam, Minneapolis, MN, USA), five days after delivering the original configuration of the Come album to Warner Bros. Although credited to Prince (along with the rest of the album, which was recorded prior to the name change), Letitgo was recorded eight months after Prince began using the name O(+>. The album version's opening ("Ready or not, here I come") is sampled from the unreleased Vanity 6 track Vibrator, although actually extracted from Poem, which was divided up throughout the album as segues (culminating in the final track, Orgasm). Recording dates and studio details are not known for the remixes, which did not contain any new input by Prince. The Caviar Radio Edit and its variants were remixed by Q.D. III, son of famed producer Quincy Jones. Of note, though, is that the Sherm Stick Edit and the (-) Sherm Stick Edit are both based around looped samples of The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker (uncredited), which can be heard throughout the song.




15.) "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD" 1994 Mustang Mix The Beautiful Experience EP.
The Most Beautiful Girl In The World was released initially on a stand-alone single, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, as the first track to carry the artist credit O(+> (although seventeen months after the O(+> album), and the first Prince/O(+> to be release independently of Warner Bros. (see The Most Beautiful Girl In The World for more details).

Three months later, multiple remixes of the track were released on the The Beautiful Experience EP.

Later in 1994, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (Saxophone Version) was released by Brian Gallagher on his stand-alone single The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (containing O(+>'s original version as the b-side).

Around the same time, a gender-reversed recording titled The Most Beautiful Boy In The World sung by Mayte was released as a single which also contained a Spanish version, titled ¿Quieres Ser El Mas Bello De Este Mundo?. The Most Beautiful Boy In The World was included as the twelfth and final song on Mayte's first and only album Child Of The Sun, released in 1995.

In 1995, a slightly different recording of the track was included as the seventh track (fifth song) on Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, his first using the name O(+>. By this time, other versions using the same basic tracks had already been released, however.

In March of the same year, an instrumental version (titled Beautiful Girl) was released as a b-side on the New Power Generation's single Get Wild (the first single from Exodus), credited to "O(+> and Eric Leeds" (the only time they have shared an artist credit on a track).

O(+>'s original version and the remix Beautiful were also included on The Beautiful Experience TV movie.

Initial tracking for the original version took place on 20 September 1993 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (on the same day as Slave 2 The Funk). Remixes and overdubs took place in early 1994 (during the same set of sessions as EYE Hate U, Days Of Wild, and a new version of Shhh), although specific dates are unknown.

It was announced at one point that Prince (as O(+>) intended the song to be recorded in multiple languages by local artists, but it is unknown how many of these recordings took place; one recording that was made was Le Garçon Le Plus Beau Dans L'Univers by French model and actress Ophélie Winter (intended for a single, Le Garçon Le Plus Beau Dans L'Univers), but this remains unreleased.

Kahoru Kohiruimaki (who previously recorded Bliss and Mind Bells) recorded a Japanese-language version of the track as part of this project, but using new music with no input by Prince; as such, it is considered a cover version of the song and is not listed below (her version was released in remixed form on her 1995 compilation album White Kohhy Best '89-'95).

The Beautiful remix uses similar production to New World, which it replaced as the b-side for The Most Beautiful Girl In The World single (Warner Bros. only authorized Prince to release one song independently, causing New World to be removed).

The original version of the track was included as the sixth track (third song) on a March 1994 configuration of The Gold Experience, and kept as the sixth track (third song) on a May 1994 configuration. It was included as the seventh song on a Summer 1994 configuration, and the sixth song on an August 1994 configuration.

The Mustang Mix of the song was also re-recorded in 1996 at Paisley Park Studios, and was planned for inclusion on The Dawn album, and as a single release, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (Mustang Mix '96), both of which remain unreleased. The song's chorus is heavily sampled on the track 2morrow.

Mayte's version, The Most Beautiful Boy In The World, was included as the eleventh track (labeled a "bonus track") on an early version of her first album, which was titled Latino Barbie Doll at the time, with the Spanish version, ¿Quieres Ser El Mas Bello De Este Mundo?, included as the twelfth and final track (also labeled a "bonus track"), before the album underwent some changes prior to release.



16.) "LOVE SIGN" ft Nona Gaye June 1994 (promotional release only) 1-800 New Funk.
Love Sign was a promotional single released two months before the album 1-800 New Funk (a compilation of mostly-unreleased music largely written and produced by Prince/O(+>, recorded by other Paisley Park Records artists), and is credited to Nona Gaye and O(+>.

Following on from The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, the single uses the name O(+> and was released through NPG Records rather than Warner Bros., who had agreed that he could appear as a guest on the album (hence his name appears after Nona Gaye's), but did not authorize a single release; as such, the single was only available as a promotional item, and no commercial release was allowed.

The US promotional issues contained Standing At The Altar by Margie Cox (on vinyl) and 2gether by the New Power Generation (on CD), both of which were also taken from the 1-800 New Funk album. The German promotional CD included a radio edit and a longer version of Love Sign.

The single reached number 72 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Airplay Chart, and number 32 on the Billboard R&B Airplay Chart.



17.) "DAMN U" ft.  Brian Gallagher 1992 unreleased single of Sweet Baby.
Damn U is the eleventh track (tenth song) on Prince's 14th album O(+>, the second album to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation, and, five weeks after the album's release, Damn U was released as the album's fourth single (on the same day as the 7 single).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in January 1992, at Paisley Park Studios (during the same set of sessions that produced The Continental, The Flow, 3 Chains O' Gold, Born 2 B.R.E.E.D., With This Tear, Qualified and a revamped version of Sex).

Kirstie Alley's spoken part for the segue included at the end of the album version was recorded in early 1992 at Record Plant, Hollywood, CA, USA. The track was included as the 14th track (ninth song) on a March 1992, configuration of the O(+> album, and the 14th track (tenth song) on a late-Summer, 1992, configurations, until many of the album's segues were removed for release.

A version with the vocals replaced by saxophone by Brian Gallagher was recorded at some point in 1992, and was included as the b-side on a planned single of Sweet Baby in early 1993, but the single was left unreleased.

www.txurrumendi.org/2016/06/prince5.html


01.) "THAT GIRL THANG" 18 February 2013 - 3rdEyeGirl.com website.
That Girl Thang, an acoustic track, was first available for download from Prince's 3rdEyeGirl.com website on 18 February 2013, within hours of the track's recording.

It is unknown if this song is also planned for inclusion on an album or any other project.

Blogger Dr. Funkenberry, reported in an online video chat that the song was written and recorded about six hours before its release; since the song was available in the early morning of 18 February 2013, this places the recording on the evening of 17 February 2013, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

The track appears to have been recorded in a single take with no overdubs, however, and Prince can be heard to turn off the recording machine at the end of the track, so the track could have been recorded on a mobile device from another location.



02.) "AIN'T GONNA MISS U WHEN U'RE GONE" ft Ledisi. 12 June 2013 released on 3rdEyeGirl.com.
Ain't Gonna Miss U When U're Gone is the eighth track to have been released on 3rdEyeGirl.com, on 12 June 2013, and is credited to "Prince featuring Ledisi," though Ledisi appears only on background vocals.

The song was recorded in late 2012 or early 2013, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The studio version of the track was played by DJ Rashida prior to Prince's show on 17 January 2013 (show 1), Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

It is unknown if this song is intended for any particular project. The horn arrangement is by Prince and Michael B. Nelson.



03.) "LET'S GO CRAZY RELOADED" 31 March 2013 Rehearsal streamed on Madison Dubé Vimeo account and promoted by 3rdEyeGirl Twitter account.
Let's Go Crazy is the first track on Prince's sixth album Purple Rain, the first album to be credited to Prince and the Revolution. One month after the album's release, Let's Go Crazy was released as the album's second single, becoming his second US number one single (following When Doves Cry). The track is also featured in the movie Purple Rain.

In 1993, the track was included as the eighth track on Prince's first compilation album The Hits 1 (also included as the first disc of The Hits / The B-Sides).

In 2001, the track was included as the fifth track on the compilation album The Very Best Of Prince.

In 2006, the Special Dance Mix version of the track was included as the first track on the second disc of the compilation album Ultimate.

On 31 March 2013 a slowed down, 6:37 studio rehearsal of Let's Go Crazy was streamed on Madison Dubé Vimeo account and promoted by 3rdEyeGirl Twitter account.

Before a studio recording was made, Prince and the Revolution recorded the song live on 3 August 1983 at First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, USA (at the same concert where I Would Die 4 U, Baby I'm A Star and Purple Rain were also recorded).

In October 1983, a studio version was recorded at the St. Louis Park Warehouse in St. Louis Park, MN, USA, which would be edited down for the album (the full version was released on the 12" version of the single), during the same sessions that produced an unreleased studio version of Computer Blue.

The full-length version (later retitled Special Dance Mix) was included as the first track on the 7 November 1983 and 23 March 1984 configurations of the album, but this was edited down for the final 14 April 1984 configuration to make room for the inclusion of Take Me With U. The Special Dance Mix was included as the seventh track on the first disc of an early configuration of the compilation album Ultimate before the album was reworked for release.



04.) "EXTRALOVEABLE RELOADED" 19 June 2013 released on 3rdEyeGirl.com website.
Extraloveable was first released on the stand-alone digital single Extraloveable in 2011, to promote the Welcome 2 Canada Tour beginning two days later. While the recording was new, the track itself was 29 years old.

The original track was recorded on 3 April 1982 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (two days after re-recording Wouldn't You Love To Love Me? and two days before 3 x 2 = 6). The song was considered for inclusion on Vanity 6, but it is not known if a version with vocals by Vanity 6 was recorded. It is possible that the track was worked on further in 1983, as some of the lyrics could be interpreted as referring to Dez Dickerson's departure from the band and Wendy Melvoin's arrival.

In 1988, engineer Chuck Zwicky pulled the track out from the vault and remixed it, telling Prince it should be released. During Prince: A Celebration in June 2000, computer screens at Paisley Park Studios offered names of a selection of tracks which users could vote on for inclusion on Crystal Ball Volume II, and while the track (now known as Xtralovable) was chosen by fans, the project was ultimately abandoned. It is not known whether this version was the same as an earlier version, or an alternate recording.

On 4 March 2011, the website drfunkenberry.com reported that Prince was "about to unleash" a "25 minute live version" of Extraloveable (written as Extra Loveable), but nothing is currently known about this version (Extraloveable had at that point never been played live, so this may be a live in-studio recording), or how it was planned for release. The version eventually released was a studio version, likely recorded later in 2011, featuring a rap by Andy Allo (who first started performing with Prince in May 2011); the track was likely recorded at Paisley Park Studios, although this is unconfirmed.

Prince stated in a radio interview with Toronto radio station 104.5 CHUM FM (also released as a podcast) that he had three versions of Extraloveable, and that they would all eventually be released; he also stated in the interview, however, that the released version was the 1982 recording with some minor tweaks, while it in fact appears to be an entirely new recording.

On 19 June 2013, a new version, titled Extraloveable Reloaded, with the rap omitted and horns added, was released on 3rdEyeGirl.com.

In December 2015 this version appeared as sixth track on the album Hitnrun Phase Two as Xtraloveable.



05.) "LIVE OUT LOUD" 22 February 2013 - 3rdEyeGirl.com website.
Live Out Loud was first available for download from Prince's 3rdEyeGirl.com website on 22 February 2013.

Earlier in the day it was streamed on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel and as an audio-only track on Minnesota public radio station The Current's website, after the track was sent to two fans (Jester Jenkins and JAK3vision) the previous evening for them to premiere on their respective YouTube channels.

Jester Jenkins, who published a download link of the track in the comments to his video, instead of simply streaming it, was asked to remove it, and publicized instead that the track would be available shortly on 3rdEyeGirl.com.

The track's lead vocals are performed by Hannah Ford, Donna Grantis and Ida Nielsen. The song's lyrics were written by Liv Warfield and the music was written by Prince, who also appears on background vocals. It is assumed that Prince also produced the track, but this has not been confirmed.

While specific recording dates are not known, the track is believed to have been recorded in late 2012 or early 2013 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

The 3rd Eye Girl social media channels showed a still image of a promotional video for the track on 30 January 2013, and it is likely a video was recorded for the track the same day or shortly before.

On 17 January 2013 a 0:52 commercial for the song was posted on 3rd Eye Girl Twitter account, billing the track and its video as "COMING IN FEBRUARY...".

It is unknown if this song is intended for any particular project, and nothing else is known about the track.



06.) Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant. 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403.
7 Prince performances. 16-19 January, 2013



07.) "BOYFRIEND" 15 February 2013 - 3rdEyeGirl.com website.
Boyfriend was first available for download from Prince's 3rdEyeGirl.com website on 15 February 2013; the track was initially only available briefly, before being taken down. it returned an hour later, now as Boyfriend Demo.

Blogger Dr. Funkenberry, tweeted that a longer version would be available in the future, but this has not been confirmed and could simply be speculation, although the "demo" addendum to the title suggests the existence of another version. He later reported in an online video chat that three versions of the song exist, of which the release version was the second.

It is unknown if this song is also planned for inclusion on an album or any other project.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.



08.) "SCREWDRIDER REMIX" 5 February 2013 Re-recording released for download on 3rdEyeGirl.com website.
Screwdriver is the ninth track on Prince's 39th studio album Hitnrun Phase Two. The track was first released almost three years earlier, however, on the stand-alone single Screwdriver. It was premiered two weeks earlier as an audio stream on Minnesota public radio station 89.3 The Current's website, and as a lyric video stream on Prince's official website 20pr1nc3.com. At the time of initial release it was unclear if this song was intended to be included on an album. It was later assumed to be part of Prince and 3rdEyeGirl's Plectrumelectrum project, as the song was used as the introduction to the 3rdEyeGirl band, but it was later revealed that the studio version of the track was recorded prior to Hannah Ford and Donna Grantis joining Prince's band.

The first public mention of the song was on 17 December 2012, when a 0:30 video rehearsal clip of the song was streamed on drummer Hannah Ford's Facebook page with the message: A Taste of Rehearsal. Interestingly the drummer on the studio version of the song is John Blackwell, rather than Ford.
The video included new guitarist Donna Grantis, and ended with a text screen stating: "2 C the rest of Donna's audition holla at ya girl! We've got bootlegs 4 daazzzzzze every good thing in the vault... Coming 2013".

As with Hannah Ford, however, Donna Grantis did not appear on the original studio version of the song. A 29-second clip of the studio version of the song followed the same day on YouTube, with an image showing lyrics from the song, again with the text "Coming 2013", but this was removed within a few hours of its posting.

On 16 January 2013, a 1:11 audio video rehearsal clip of the song was streamed on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel with the message: Prince just played for the new/screw at Fox 9.

On 5 February 2013, a 6:44 remix of the song was made available for download on 3rdEyeGirl.com website.

On 8 February 2013, a 1:08 commercial for a live version of the song to be released on February 10, 2013 was streamed on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel. The same video was also streamed on Prince's new website prince2013.com.

On 10 February 2013, just after presenting Record Of The Year to Gotye at 55th Grammy Awards, a 9:08 live video of the song was released simultaneously on prince2013.com and 3rdeyegirl.com.

The track is assumed to have been recorded in late 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track was re-recorded in later 2012 or early 2013 with the newly-formed 3rdEyeGirl band; this version was released in early February 2013 as Screwdriver (Remix), although it is in fact a complete re-recording.



09.) "ROCKNROLL LOVEAFFAIR REMIX7" DUBBED 5 February 2013 available to download on the 3rdEyeGirl.com website.
Rocknroll Loveaffair is the second track on Prince's 39th studio album Hitnrun Phase Two. Over three years earlier, however, the track (as Rock And Roll Love Affair) was released on the stand-alone single Rock And Roll Love Affair. It was premiered on several Clear Channel Communications radio stations and iHeartRadio.com two months earlier, on 17 September 2012, initially as RNR Affair.

On 6 January 2013 a 5:42 remix of the song was streamed on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel. The same remix dubbed "Remix7" was made available to download on the 3rdEyeGirl.com website on 5 February 2013.

The song includes repeated synth motifs combining parts of the main hook from The Jimi Hendrix Experience's 3rd Stone From The Sun (a.k.a. Third Stone From The Sun, written by Jimi Hendrix, from the 1967 album Are You Experienced), and Prince's own Take Me With U. These does not seem to be a direct reference to those songs, however.

The lyrics make mention of When Stars Collide, the title of a track by Andy Allo from her album Superconductor, and it can be interpreted that the song's lyrics refer to a relationship between Prince and Andy Allo.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in December 2011, or January 2012, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. Horn overdubs took place in late January 2012.



10.) "STRATUS" 2 February 2013 streamed on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel.
Stratus is a live cover version of the track by Billy Cobham, which first appeared on his 1973 album Spectrum (written by Billy Cobham).

A live version from 22 October 2010, MCH MultiArena / Jyske Bank Boxen, Herning, Denmark was streamed on Drfunkenberry.com beginning 2 November 2010 to promote the upcoming Welcome 2 America Tour.

Prince has performed the song regularly since 2007, usually in smaller venues, and often uses it to highlight solos by each band member. No studio version by Prince is believed to exist.

On 16 July 2011 a 2:33 live performance of the song from 15 Jul. 2011, Arena Santa Giuliana (Main Stage), Perugia, Italy was streamed on Andy Allo Facebook page.

On 2 February 2013 a 4:58 live performance of the song from 16 January 2013 (show 1) Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis (MN), USA was streamed on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel.

On 3 April 2013 a 4:37 audio video instrumental rehearsal medley of Boom followed by Stratus (titled as BOOMSTRATUS) was streamed on Madison Dubé's Vimeo account, with revolving photographs of the 3rdEyeGirl band as background images behind the track.



11.) "CHAPTER & VERSE" 20 January 2013 - 3rd Eye Girl stream.
Chapter & Verse was streamed as a live performance on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel on 20 January 2013 (taken from the show on 17 January 2013 (show 2), Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis, MN, USA). It is not certain if the track is meant to be a stand-alone stream or if a version of the track will be part of a future project.

Blogger Dr. Funkenberry, who often reports official information about Prince-related items, has stated that Chapter & Verse "was a one off, created on the spot... never before rehearsed". It is assumed, therefore, that no studio recording was made prior to its performance.



12.) "SAME PAGE DIFFERENT BOOK" 6 January 2013 - 3rd Eye Girl stream.
Same Page Different Book was streamed as audio only over a static video on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel on 6 January 2013, but the track dates from at least two years earlier.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in either 2010 or 2011 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track was planned for inclusion on the Welcome 2 America album which was tentatively planned for release in 2011. The album remains unreleased.



13.) "MUTINY" 2012 Rehearsal streamed on drfunkenberry.com website.
Mutiny is the second track on The Family's first and only album The Family. The song was written by Prince, but credited to Jerome Benton. In 2001, a live performance medley by Prince of Controversy and Mutiny was released as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 2.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in late June 1984 at the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions that produced High Fashion, River Run Dry, Mazarati (later renamed Susannah's Pajamas), and Desire). St. Paul Peterson overdubbed vocals onto the track in late 1984 - early 1985.

On 23 April 2012, a 9:54 rehearsal version of Mutiny containing an interpolation of Ice Cream Castles by Prince and the New Power Generation and likely recorded around mid-April 2012 was streamed on drfunkenberry.com to promote the forthcoming Welcome 2 Australia Tour. The track was sent to Paul Peterson prior to its online stream, and fDeluxe (as The Family became known) responded the following week by streaming Hot Summer At Menard's (a spoof commercial for Menards, a mid-west homegoods store, using Prince's Hot Summer as background music) on drfunkenberry.com.



14.) "HOT SUMMER" 7 June 2010 - 89.3 The Current online stream.
Hot Summer is an unreleased song, which was premiered on Minnesota public radio station 89.3 The Current's website on 7 June 2010, Prince's 52nd birthday.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in Spring 2010 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. At some point this song was slated for release on a Welcome 2 America album that remains unreleased.

www.txurrumendi.org/2016/06/prince4.html


01.) "LOVE" alternate acoustic recording 21 October 2007 - Streamed on 3121.com
Love is the sixth track on Prince's 31st studio album 3121, and, three months after the album's release, Love was included as the b-side on UK promotional copies of the album's third single, Fury (but not included on the commercial single).

On 21 October 2007, an alternate acoustic recording (with overdubs) was streamed on 3121.com as the website's second "Jam of the Week".

Exact recording dates are unknown, but it was likely recorded at some point in 2005, at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, or 3121 (Mulholland), West Hollywood, CA, USA.

The track was included as the eighth track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, before the album underwent some changes before its release. It is unknown if the acoustic version was recorded during the same time period, or was recorded at a later date.


02.) "Y Should EYE Do That When EYE Can Do This?" June 2001, it was released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition #5 as an mp3 download.
Y Should Eye Do That When Eye Can Do This? (later known as Y Should EYE Do That When EYE Can Do This?) was initially heard as a 1:32 excerpt streaming on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 1 June 2000, along with excerpts of Splash and Cybersingle. In June 2001, it was released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition # 5 as an mp3 download (credited to Prince, despite having been recorded and initially heard while Prince used the name O(+>). In 2004, it was included (as Y Should EYE Do That When EYE Can Do This?) as the third track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded during sessions for Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, corroborated by The Hornheadz, who recorded horns for the track on 17 May 1999 (during the same session as horn overdubs for Hot Wit U, Man'O'War, I Ain't Gonna Run and R U Ready?).


03.) "SEX ME SEX ME NOT" 11 June 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #5 download.
Sex Me Sex Me Not (a.k.a. Sexmesexmenot) was released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition # 5 as an mp3 download. In 2004, it was included (in extended/remixed form, as Sexmesexmenot) as the fifth track on the compilation album The Chocolate Invasion.

Recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2000-1 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA), but the track was believed not to have been included on the aborted High, which might suggest the track was recorded after the album was compiled in August 2000 (or that he withheld the track from the album for other reasons). The version included on The Chocolate Invasion includes samples and spoken quotations from Judas Smile, tying it into the "Chocolate Invasion" theme of the album's title.


04.) "SUPERCUTE" 14 April 2001 - Supercute single.
Supercute was released initially as the first track of a stand-alone single, Supercute, sold only at concerts on Prince's Hit N Run Tour, beginning with the 14 April 2001 show at the Atlanta Civic Center, Atlanta, GA, USA. Two months later it was included in NPG Music Club Edition # 5 as an mp3 download. In 2004, it was included as the third track on the compilation album The Chocolate Invasion.

Recording dates are unknown, but the track was included as the first track on the aborted High album, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000, which would suggest the track was recorded in Spring-Summer 2000, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.



05.) "PROPS N' POUNDS" 15 May 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #4 download.
Props N' Pounds was initially offered as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition #4 (along with Hit U In The Socket by Rosie Gaines, Sex In My Bones by Fonky Baldheads and NPG Ahdio Show# 4), and on the same day, a different version of the song (with some additional parts, but without others) was included in NPG Ahdio Show# 4. In 2004, the version which had been an individual download was included as the sixth track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2000 or early 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track is built around portions of MTV News anchor Kurt Loder talking about Prince in glowing terms.



06.) "BEAUTIFUL STRANGE" 24 August 1999 - Beautiful Strange home video; 30 April 2001 - Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic album.
Beautiful Strange was first available as a video of a studio recording ending the Beautiful Strange home video, with a short segment of the recording session included as a prologue to the home video (the home video was broadcast in full almost a year earlier, however, on the UK TV channel Channel 4). In 2001, a remixed version was included as the eleventh track on Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic, the companion album to Prince's 23rd album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, his sixth album using the name O(+>. It was the only track on the album not to have been included on Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking likely took place in mid-1998 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. Remixing likely took place in late 1999 or 2000, also at Paisley Park Studios. The song was included as the title track on the 1998-9 album Beautiful Strange, but little is known about the album, which remains unreleased.


07.) "SUPERFUNKYCALIFRAGISEXY" instrumental 22 April 2001- NPG Ahdio Show #3 download.
Superfunkycalifragisexy is the sixth song on Prince's sixteenth album "The Black Album" (originally planned for release as his tenth album, albeit with no artist credit). In 1989, a live version was included on the Lovesexy Live 2 VHS, taken from the 9 September 1988 live TV broadcast, as part of a medley of Controversy, Dirty Mind, Superfunkycalifragisexy and a Controversy coda. In 2001, an instrumental version of the track was included as part of the NPG Ahdio Show # 3 download.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in mid-September 1986 at Prince's Galpin Blvd Home Studio, Chanhassen, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions that produced Koo Koo, One Day (I'm Gonna Make You Mine) and When The Dawn Of The Morning Comes), making the earliest-recorded track on "The Black Album". He worked on the track further in January 1987, at the Crosstown Circle Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA.

The title is spoof of the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, a song sung by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke in the 1964 movie Mary Poppins.



08.) "THE DAISY CHAIN" NPGMC Edition #3 Released 22 April 2001 Premium Bonus Trax.
The Daisy Chain was first released as a video as part of NPG Music Club Edition #2 (see The Daisy Chain for details).

The following month, The Daisy Chain was released as a single by the New Power Generation, sold only at concerts on Prince's Hit N Run Tour, beginning with the 14 April 2001 show at the Atlanta Civic Center, Atlanta, GA, USA. The following week, the track was included as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition #3. In 2004, the track was included as the tenth and final track on the compilation album The Chocolate Invasion (without no specific artist credit).

Recording dates are unknown, but the track was included as the fifth track on the aborted High album, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000, which would suggest the track was recorded in early-to-mid 2000 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA). The track is the earliest-released to feature DVS, who raps on this track.



09.) "NORTHSIDE" 22 April 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #3 download.
Northside was initially released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition #3 as an mp3 download, credited to the New Power Generation. In 2004, it was included as the seventh track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse, with no specific artist credit.

While exact recording dates are not known, the track is believed to have been recorded in late 2000 or early 2001. Najee, who plays horn stabs on the song, started working with Prince in September 2000. The track also features Kip Blackshire on background vocals, but other musical personnel are not known. The song may initially have been intended for the New Power Generation's album Peace, announced in March 2000, but this project may have been abandoned by the time the song was recorded.



10.) "HABIBI" 22 April 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #3 download.
Habibi was offered as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition #3 (along with The Work Part 1, Northside and The Daisy Chain (both by the New Power Generation) and NPG Ahdio Show #3). A few days after the initial release, a slightly edited version replaced the original on the download page, perhaps to remove some lyrics and elements from Jimi Hendrix's Machine Gun (from his 1970 live album Band Of Gypsys).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in 1998 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track is largely built Jimi Hendrix's song Machine Gun. It is included here as a separate track, however, as Habibi includes several improvised elements, and was given a new name by Prince. On 14 November 1998, Love4OneAnother.com noted that Prince wanted to get in touch with the Hendrix family (who controls the estate) to donate a version of Machine Gun "free of charge, to use at their discretion", and Habibi is likely to be an edited version of that track. Although recorded during a time when Prince was using the name O(+>, the track was released using the name Prince, so it is listed as such here.



11.) "THE WORK PART 1" 22 April 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #3 download.
The Work Part 1 is the fourth track (as The Work Pt. 1) on Prince's 24th album The Rainbow Children, his first album after reverting to the name Prince, but six months earlier, a slightly different mix of the track had been made available (as The Work Part 1) as an official free download from the file-sharing service Napster, before being made available as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 3 two weeks later. The following month, a live performance video of the song was included as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 4. In 2003, a 2002 live version was included as the fourth track on the Live At The Aladdin Las Vegas concert DVD.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place at a live in-studio recording in February 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (possibly during the 8 February 2001 session where the Hornheadz added horns to the rest of the album's tracks). It was stated on the NPG Music Club at the time of the track's release that Prince played both the guitar solo and the piano solo at the same time in one take. The track was mixed slightly between its initial release in April and the final configuration of The Rainbow Children album in June 2001.

The album version also includes a segue prior to the beginning of the following track, Everywhere.

The Part 1 in the title is likely an homage to songs by artists like James Brown, whose tracks were often split into segments for single releases, rather than an indication of other parts to the song. There was a report in early 2001, however, before any public mention of The Work Part 1, of Prince introducing a new song at Paisley Park Studios and calling it The Work Part 2 (this report may have been in error, however).



12.) "GAMILLAH" 14 April 2001 - The Daisy Chain single.
Gamillah is the b-side of The Daisy Chain, a single by the New Power Generation, sold only at concerts on Prince's Hit N Run Tour, beginning with the 14 April 2001 show at the Atlanta Civic Center, Atlanta, GA, USA. Eight months later, the track was included as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 11, this time credited to Prince (although the recording is identical). In 2004, the track was included as the ninth track on the compilation album The Chocolate Invasion (without an explicit credit either way).

Recording dates are unknown, but the track was included as the sixth track on the aborted High album, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000, which would suggest the track was recorded in early-to-mid 2000 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA). The track is the earliest-released Prince-related track to feature Najee, who plays flute on the track.



13.) "PEACE" 18 February 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #1 download.
Peace was initially offered as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition #1 (along with Mad, Funky Design, Splash, When EYE Lay My Hands On U and NPG Ahdio Show #1), but a sample of the track had been available to stream on NPGOnlineLtd.com in March 2000. Three months after the mp3 download, Peace was available as a single, sold only at concerts on Prince's Hit N Run Tour, beginning with the 14 April 2001 show at the Atlanta Civic Center, Atlanta, GA, USA. In 2004, the track was included as the eighth track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse (without a specific artist credit).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place late 1999 to early 2000 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track was planned for inclusion on the New Power Generation album Peace announced in early 2000 (and mentioned on the packaging for the Peace single, which was printed in early 2000). This album remains unreleased, however. An edit of the track was also included as the second track on the Man'O'War (Remix) NPG Records Sampler unreleased cassette (intended for promotional use only).



14.) "WHEN EYE LAY MY HANDS ON U" 18 February 2001 - NPG Music Club free download.
When Eye Lay My Hands On U (later known as When EYE Lay My Hands On U) was released as a free mp3 download concurrently with NPGMC Commercial (free mp3 audio file) and NPGMC Intro (free .mov video file), as promotion for the concurrently-released NPG Music Club Edition # 1 (consisting of NPG Ahdio Show # 1, Mad, Funky Design, Splash, Peace (all mp3 audio files), and When Eye Lay My Hands On U and U Make My Sun Shine (both .mov video files)). In 2004, the track (now known as When EYE Lay My Hands On U) was included as the first track on Prince's 29th full-length studio album The Chocolate Invasion, the first compilation album of NPG Music Club downloads.

Specific recording dates for the track are not known, but it is assumed to have been recorded in early-mid 2000 at Paisley Park Studios. It was initially included as the tenth and final track on the High album, announced as completed (as a "rough draft") on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 8 August 2000, before the album was abandoned. On 16 September 2000, NPGOnlineLtd.com announced that Prince had been filming "clips of songs (not fully produced videos)" for an upcoming online project - it is likely, therefore, that the 1:09 video released concurrently with the song through the NPG Music Club is all that was recorded.

The discrepancy in the use of Eye/EYE in the track name is likely due to the limits of the website coding used on the NPG Music Club at the time of the track's release rather than any deliberate choice, but it is reflected here nonetheless.



15.) "FUNKY DESIGN" 18 February 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #1 download.
Funky Design was offered (as The Funky Design) as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 1 (along with Mad, Peace, Splash, When EYE Lay My Hands On U and NPG Ahdio Show #1). The track originates from 1994, however, and the studio version was played at the New Power Generation Store in Minneapolis in November 1994 (along with Mad and Snow Man). An excerpt of the track had also been streamed on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 17 July 2000 (as Funky Design), before the full track was released in 2001. Despite being released after Prince reverted to using the his own name, rather than O(+>, the track was credited to O(+>, as it was recorded while using that name.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place in November 1994 at Paisley Park Studios. Sonny T. also overdubbed vocals (replacing Prince's) for a version placed as the sixteenth and final track (twelfth song) on a 2 December 1994 configuration of the New Power Generation's second album Exodus. This version remains unreleased, however.



16.) "MAD" 18 February 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #1 download.
Mad was offered as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 1 (along with Funky Design, Peace, Splash, When EYE Lay My Hands On U and NPG Ahdio Show #1).

The track originates from 1994, however, and the studio version was played at the New Power Generation Store in Minneapolis in November 1994 (along with Funky Design and Snow Man).

In 1998, a live version was included on the Beautiful Strange TV special (released in 1999 on VHS). An excerpt of the track had also been streamed on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 17 July 2000, before the full track was released in 2001.

Despite being released after Prince reverted to using the his own name, rather than O(+>, the track was credited to O(+>, as it was recorded while using that name.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place in November 1994 at Paisley Park Studios. Sonny T. also overdubbed vocals (replacing O(+>'s) for a version included as the tenth track (sixth song) on a 2 December 1994 configuration of the New Power Generation's second album Exodus. This version remains unreleased, however. The song uses a prominent loop of the song "Bebop Ta Hip Hop" by Headshock.



17.) "SPLASH" 18 February 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition #1 download.
Splash was offered as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 1 (along with Mad, Funky Design, Peace, When EYE Lay My Hands On U and NPG Ahdio Show #1). The track originates from 1985, however, and an excerpt of the track had been streamed on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 1 June 2000 before the full track was released in 2001. The track carries the artist credit "Prince and the Revolution", the first time this credit had been used for a previously-unreleased song since Power Fantastic in 1993 (and, at the present time, the latest song to do so).

Initial tracking took place on 1 August 1985 at the Crosstown Circle Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA (the day after the release of the Pop Life single, three days before recording Empty Room). The track was sent to Clare Fischer for string recording in July 1986, but the song was not included on any known configurations of any album. It is likely that further work was done on the track prior to its eventual release, but recording dates are not known. This final version was planned for inclusion on the Prince and the Revolution album Roadhouse Garden album worked on in 1998-9, but the album remains unreleased.



18.) "WHEN WILL WE B PAID?" 21 December, 2000 - U Make My Sun Shine single download.
When Will We B Paid? (a.k.a. When Will We B Paid), a cover version of the song When Will We Be Paid? by The Staple Singers (from their 1970 album We'll Get Over) is the b-side of a stand-alone single, U Make My Sun Shine, available to download on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 21 December, 2000, containing full artwork and instructions for burning the single to CD (the tracks and artwork were reached by navigating through a complicated puzzle). A CD version was released through retail stores four and a half months later, on 10 April, 2001.

Starting 5 January, 2011, When Will We B Paid? was made available as a digital download on iTunes and other digital outlets using the same artwork as the back cover download from the original download (along with a separate download of U Make My Sun Shine); this is not considered a single as such, though, but a re-issue of the original U Make My Sun Shine single, albeit separated into separate tracks.

On 2 November, 2015, When Will We B Paid? (as When Will We B Paid) was made available as the ninth Tidal Purple Pick of the Week.

Recording dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been included on the aborted High, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August, 2000, which would suggest the track was recorded in late 1999 or 2000. O(+> began playing the song live in October 1999, so it is possible the track was recorded in the studio then, but this is not known (the track is credited to Prince rather than O(+>, but this should not be considered verification that it was recorded after he changed his name back to Prince in June, 2000).



19.) "2045: RADICAL MAN" 26 September 2000 - Bamboozled album.
2045: Radical Man was initially included as the 15th track (final song) on the Bamboozled soundtrack album, which accompanied the 2000 Spike Lee movie Bamboozled, but a sample of the track (credited to the New Power Generation) had been available to stream on NPGOnlineLtd.com in March 2000.

Its release on Bamboozled was credited to Prince. Seven months after the soundtrack's release, the track was included as the b-side of Peace, a single by the New Power Generation, sold only at concerts on Prince's Hit N Run Tour, beginning with the 14 April 2001 show at the Atlanta Civic Center, Atlanta, GA, USA, credited to the band (the single itself, however, originates from early 2000, when it was promoted on NPGOnlineLtd.com). In 2004, the track was included as the ninth track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse (without a specific artist credit).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place late 1999 to early 2000 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track was planned for inclusion on the New Power Generation album Peace announced in early 2000 (and mentioned on the packaging for the Peace single, which was printed in early 2000). This album remains unreleased, however. An edit of the track was also included as the second track on the Man'O'War (Remix) NPG Records Sampler unreleased cassette (intended for promotional use only).

www.txurrumendi.org/2016/06/prince3.html 


01.) "GUITAR" July 2011 Acoustic version ft. Andy Allo.
Guitar is the second track from Prince's 32nd album Planet Earth, and a week prior to the album's initial release (with the Mail on Sunday newspaper in the UK and Ireland), Guitar was released as the album's first single in Europe. Five and a half months prior to the album's release, however, a completely different version of Guitar (often described as a demo, although not officially labelled as such), was available for purchase as an mp3 download from 3121.com to coincide with Prince's appearance on the Superbowl Half-Time show on 4 February 2007. Additionally, six weeks prior to the album's release, the album version of Guitar was available for download on Verizon Wireless in the USA, and a short promotional clip of Prince and his band performing the song was used in TV advertisements.

In 2011, new bandmember Andy Allo posted on her Facebook page the track Guitar (Acoustic), seemingly a rehearsal take of the track, recorded only with Prince and Allo (complete with Prince giving direction to Allo). Interestingly, the meta-data of the track gives the artist credit as "Prince/Allo", and gives an album title of "The L/C", about which nothing is known. The artwork embedded in the track also gives the credit "Prince/Allo", while the artwork's photo is a picture of Prince lifting up Allo's guitar (see artwork below). The song was also offered as a free download at ThisIsRealMusic.com.

Initial tracking dates are uncertain, but it is believed that the track was recorded in early 2007 at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA or at 3121 at The Rio Las Vegas, NV, USA. The initially-released version appears to be a solo production by Prince, while Michael B. has confirmed that both he and Sonny T. appear on the album version (album credits are not split up by track). A recording date for the 2011 rehearsal between Prince and Allo is not known, but assumed to be in July 2011, while on the Welcome 2 America Euro 2011 Tour in Europe.


02.) "RICH FRIENDS" 14 October 2010 - KTU.com online stream.
Rich Friends is an unreleased song, which was streamed in full (with three station IDs overdubbed onto the track) on KTU.com (the website of New York, NY, USA, radio station 103.5 KTU), beginning on 14 October 2010.

French radio station Europe 1 had previously debuted a clip of the song on 8 October 2010. The DJ announced the track as coming from a "new" album, 20TEN Deluxe (which was thought to be a deluxe edition of 20TEN, although no other details are currently known); the album hasn't been released and is likely to have been shelved.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in 2010 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


03.) "SATISFIED" 2006 The Versace Experience II.
Satisfied is the seventh track on Prince's 31st studio album 3121, but almost a year previously, a live clip of the song was available for download from the NPG Music Club. The following week, the live performance (as part of the Vanguard Jam medley) was available to download as video from NPG Music Club.

In April 2007, a live version was posted as streaming audio on 3121.com. In July 2007, another live version (in a medley with Down By The Riverside) was posted as streaming audio on 3121.com.

In 2008, a third 2007 live performance was included as the sixth track on the live album Indigo Nights (leading directly into Beggin' Woman Blues).

Specific recording dates are not known, but it was likely recorded in early 2005 at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, or 3121 (Mulholland), West Hollywood, CA, USA. The track was included as the ninth track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, before the album underwent some changes before its release.


04.) "BLACK SWEAT" 2006 The Versace Experience II.
Black Sweat is the fourth track on Prince's 31st studio album 3121, and, a month prior to the album's release, Black Sweat was released (as a download) as the album's second single (a CD single release followed in Europe a week after the album's release).

Specific recording dates are unknown, but the track was likely written in mid-late June 2004, as Prince added it to the acoustic section of the Musicology Live 2004ever tour on 25 June 2004 and played it fairly regularly after that (Prince spent a few days at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, around this time, and it is likely that the track was recorded there). Since the released track is a dance track rather than an acoustic track, it is possible the initial recording was re-worked later on, but information has not been verified. The track was included as the sixth track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, following on from Incense And Candles before switching places with it while Streets Of Panama was removed from the album before its release.

The live recording of Black Sweat from Prince's final full show (14 April 2016, Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA, USA) was made available from Tidal on 18 April 2016 as the Purple Pick of the Week, and became the final official release of music by Prince before his death on 21 April 2016.


05.) "BRAND NEW ORLEANS" 3 September 2005 - NPG Music Club stream; 5 September 2005 - NPG Music Club download.
Brand New Orleans was first streamed in the Glam Slam VIP room of the NPG Music Club within 24 hours of its recording in response to Hurricane Katrina's destruction of New Orleans, MO, USA. Two days later, the song was offered as a download bundle with S.S.T. and Mavis Staples' You Will Be Moved. Eight weeks later, the track was included on the CD single of S.S.T..

Initial tracking took place on 2 September 2005 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, based around the final instrumental section of S.S.T., which was recorded at the same session.


06.) "PURPLE HOUSE" a.k.a. Red House; 4 May, 2004 - Power Of Soul: A Tribute To Jimi Hendrix.

Purple House is the fourth track (third song) on the 2004 tribute album Power Of Soul: A Tribute To Jimi Hendrix. The track is a cover version of the 1967 track Red House by The Jimi Hendrix Experience (written by Jimi Hendrix), which first appeared on Are You Experienced (1967).

The name of the track was changed by Prince to mirror his famous association with the color purple.

Recording dates and studio are unknown, but it is likely that initial tracking took place in 1999 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track features Larry Graham (who had turned down an offer to play with Hendrix at the 1968 Woodstock festival) on bass guitar.


07.) "MAGNIFICENT" Digital Virtual B-Side. 5 April 2004 - NPG Music Club mp3 download.

Magnificent was released as a "virtual b-side" to Musicology, the first single from Prince's 28th album Musicology. The single itself did not receive a retail or download release as a single in North America.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is likely that the track was recorded in early 2004, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


08.) "THE DANCE" 29 March 2004 - The Chocolate Invasion download album.
The Dance is the eighth track on Prince's 29th album The Chocolate Invasion, available as a download only, and was the only track on the album not to have been previously-released on the NPG Music Club. Two years later, Prince included a re-recorded version as the eleventh track on his 31st studio album 3121; the first time he had included a song on two studio albums (he has since repeated this with U're Gonna C Me).

Specific recording dates are unknown; it is possible that the track was initially recorded at around the same time as the other tracks included on The Chocolate Invasion, in 1999-2001, but it is also possible that Prince recorded the track closer to 2004 and felt it fit with the rest of the songs on the collection. Recording dates are not known for the version included on 3121 either, although it is likely he recorded this version between late 2004 and late 2005, at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, or 3121 (Mulholland), West Hollywood, CA, USA. This version was included as the elevent track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, where it remained for release.


09.) "MADRID 2 CHICAGO" 17 January 2002 - NPG Music Club Edition # 12 mp3 download (full version).
Madrid 2 Chicago was first streamed in a 1:23 incomplete form in January 1999 on Love4OneAnother.com. In 2002, the full track was released as an mp3 as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 12, the final edition of the first year of the NPG Music Club. At the time, the track was announced as coming from the forthcoming album Madrid 2 Chicago (presumably planned for an NPG Music Club members' release), but this album was not released.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in 1998, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The released version leads directly into the track Breathe (released on the same day, and also planned for Madrid 2 Chicago), indicating that they may have been recorded during the same sessions. The track was credited upon release to O(+>, even though it was released after Prince reverted back to his original stage name, as the track was recorded while using the name O(+>. The track's title (and its lyrics) come from the return flight Prince often took while Mayte lived temporarily in Spain.


10.) "BREATHE" 17 January 2002 - NPG Music Club Edition # 12 mp3 download.

Breathe was released as an mp3 as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 12, the final edition of the first year of the NPG Music Club. At the time, the track was announced as coming from the forthcoming album Madrid 2 Chicago (presumably planned for an NPG Music Club members' release), but this album was not released.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is believed that initial tracking took place in 1998, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The released version leads directly from the track Madrid 2 Chicago (released on the same day, and also planned for Madrid 2 Chicago), indicating that they may have been recorded during the same sessions. The track was credited upon release to O(+>, even though it was released after Prince reverted back to his original stage name, as the track was recorded while using the name O(+>.


11.) "A CASE OF U" 17 January 2002 - NPG Music Club Edition # 12 mp3 download.

A Case Of U (a.k.a. A Case Of You) is the fourth track on Prince's 25th album One Nite Alone..., but four months before the album's release, on 17 January 2002, the track was released as an mp3 as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 12, the final edition of the first year of the NPG Music Club. The track is a cover version of the 1971 track A Case Of You by Joni Mitchell (written by Joni Mitchell, from her album Blue), although the first verse is omitted in Prince's version. In 2007, a slightly edited version (removing the final coda) was included as the sixth track on the compilation album A Tribute To Joni Mitchell (using the original title, A Case Of You).

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is believed that initial tracking took place in Spring 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (along with the rest of the One Nite Alone... album), during the mastering of The Rainbow Children album. Prince first performed the song in 1983, however (at the 3 August 1983, First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, USA concert where I Would Die 4 U, Baby I'm A Star and Purple Rain were recorded), so Prince may have recorded another studio version at an earlier date.


12.) "HIGH" 15 December 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 11.

High was released initially as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 11, although a clip of the song had been included ten months earlier as part of NPG Ahdio Show # 1. In 2004, the track was included as the seventh track on the compilation album The Chocolate Invasion.

While specific recording dates are not known, the track was included as the seventh track on the aborted High album, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000, which would suggest the track was recorded in early-to-mid 2000 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA).


13.) "SILICON" 15 December 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 11 mp3 download.

Silicon was released initially as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 11, although a clip of the song had been included nine months earlier as part of NPG Ahdio Show # 2. In 2002, Silicon was offered again (with no explanation) as one of only two mp3 downloads offered in the second year of the NPG Music Club. In 2004, an edited version of the track was included as the opening track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse (the first line of the song is "welcome 2 the slaughterhouse").

Recording dates are unknown, but the first verse is largely taken from The Greatest Romance Ever Sold (The Adam & Eve Remix), which may suggest the track was recorded shortly after that remix, in late 1999 or 2000 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA). Some lyrics from the track ("don't you know dead blood kills interferons?") were later quoted in the live version of Xenophobia, released on the live album One Nite Alone... Live!


14.) "JUKEBOX WITH A HEARTBEAT" 15 November 2001 - NPG Ahdio Show # 9.

Jukebox With A Heartbeat was included as part of NPG Ahdio Show # 9 (part of NPG Music Club Edition # 10), and has not been made available as a separate track.

Recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2001 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA).


15.) "UNDERNEATH THE CREAM" 14 April 2001 - Supercute single.


Underneath The Cream was released initially as the second track of a stand-alone single, Supercute, sold only at concerts on Prince's Hit N Run Tour, beginning with the 14 April 2001 show at the Atlanta Civic Center, Atlanta, GA, USA. Seven months later it was included in NPG Music Club Edition # 10 as an mp3 download. In 2004, it was included as the fourth track on the compilation album The Chocolate Invasion.

Recording dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded in early 2000 (most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA) during remix sessions for the single The Hot X-perience which contained multiple remixes of Hot Wit U ("underneath the cream" is a phrase mentioned on the original recording of Hot Wit U). It was included on the 12" single, which was later abandoned. It was then included as the second track on the aborted High, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000.


16.) "CONTEST SONG" Instrumental 28 August 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 8 download.
Contest Song was initially released as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 8. The track, an instrumental, was designed for NPG Music Club members to use to create their own song with lyrics, with the best entries to be offered as downloads by the NPG Music Club. The winning tracks, Where Are Your Dandelions? by Dana D., How Could I Love You More? by Miles Rivers, and No War by The Muse, were released as mp3 downloads as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 10 two months later.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in Summer 2001 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. Although multiple versions by NPG Music Club members exist, they are not listed here as they do not contain any new input by Prince or the New Power Generation.


17.) "MY MEDALLION" 28 August 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 8 download.
My Medallion was initially released as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 8. The previous year, however, a pre-recorded humorous message, tentatively titled Thank U Just The Same, using the musical backing of My Medallion, was broadcast at the Yahoo! Internet Life Awards (as a response to winning the "Best Internet Only Single" award for One Song).

Earlier in 2001, My Medallion had also been included in NPG Ahdio Show # 1, but had not been available separately at the time.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in Spring or early Summer 2000 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. It was believed to have been included on the High album, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000, which was later aborted.

Whether intentionally or not, the song's music is largely based upon Eric Burdon and War's 1970 song Spill The Wine (written by War), but no writer's credits were given upon My Medallion's release.

Interestingly, My Medallion is one of only two tracks from High not to be included on the later releases, The Chocolate Invasion or The Slaughterhouse (the other being When Will We B Paid?), although the artwork for The Chocolate Invasion shows it listed as the album's fifth track, indicating it was included on a configuration of the album, but removed before release.

In 2015 when the The Chocolate Invasion album was featured on Tidal My Medallion appeared on the album as originally planned as its fifth track. The Tidal stream of the album omitted The Dance.

Although recorded while Prince was using the name O(+>, the track was credited to Prince upon release, so it is credited as such here.


18.) "GOLDEN PARACHUTE" 28 August 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 7 download.
Golden Parachute was initially offered as an mp3 download as the premium members' bonus part of NPG Music Club Edition # 7, but a portion of the track had been included in NPG Ahdio Show # 1 seven months earlier, so the full version available for download was called Golden Parachute (Long Version). In 2004, the track (including one additional trumpet fill at the beginning, but otherwise identical), was included as the fourth track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in May 2000 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, following Clive Davis' firing from Arista Records (which the lyrics refer to). It was included as the third track on the High album, announced by NPGOnlineLtd.com to be complete (in rough form) on 8 August 2000, which was later aborted. Although recorded while Prince was using the name O(+>, the track was credited to Prince upon release, so it is credited as such here.


19.) "THE HOLLY RIVER" Instrumental 7 July 2001.

The Holy River is the eighth track on the second disc of Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third to be credited to O(+>, and, two months after the album's release, The Holy River was released as the album's second commercially-released single, released in the UK and Japan (a free promo cassette was made available in the Summer of 1997 in the US through the Borders bookstore chain).

In 2001, a track titled Instrumental was released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition # 6 as an mp3 download; it was essentially an instrumental re-recording of The Holy River, but not credited as such.

Initial tracking dates are unknown, but lyrics refer to Prince proposing to Mayte, making it likely the track was recorded in late 1995 or 1996, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

The instrumental version was most likely recorded in late 1996 for potential inclusion on a proposed 1997 maxi-single of Face Down, but this maxi-single was canceled when EMI Records folded, along with The Holy River (Remix) and The Holy River (Dirtyhousemix), which were included as the seventh and eighth tracks respectively on an April 1997, configuration of the maxi-single.


20.) "HYPNOPARADISE" 7 July 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 6 download.

Hypnoparadise was released in July 2001, as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 6 as an mp3 download, credited to O(+> (since he had recorded the track prior to reverting to the name Prince). In 2004 it was included as the fifth track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded in 1998-9 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. O(+> played a radically-different largely-instrumental version of the track a few times beginning in late December 1998, containing samples also used in Get Wild.


21.) "VAN GOGH" 7 July 2001 - NPG Music Club Edition # 6 download.
Van Gogh is the sixth track on Van Gogh's fourth album Van Gogh, co-written by Prince (as O(+>) and Sandra St. Victor, but re-recorded by the band for their release. In 2001, O(+>'s own version was released as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 6.

While specific recording dates are not known, the track was originally written by Sandra St. Victor as Love Is, and was sent to O(+> in Summer, 1995, following a loose agreement for O(+> and Sandra St. Victor to work together (along with Sanctuary (later renamed Soul Sanctuary), I'll Never Open My Legs Again (later renamed EyeBlue.png'll Never B Another Fool), How We Livin' (later renamed Livin' 2 Die) and Nothing Left To Give (later renamed Stone). Additional lyrics and music were added by O(+> before recording in 1995, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions as the other songs sent by St. Victor). It is believed that the song was intended for Emancipation at one point, but it is not known to have been included on any configuration of the album. In March 1998, O(+> sent a cassette of the song to Van Gogh, as he wanted to give a song to a professional artist with a disability and had found Van Gogh after much searching online, through the Coalition of Disabled Musicians in New York (the bandmembers all use wheelchairs). Van Gogh's version was recorded in Spring or Summer 1998 at Van Gogh Studios, Atlanta, GA, USA. Sandra St. Victor's name was missing on the song's credits; other tracks by St. Victor were also released with inaccurate credits, causing her to make legal threats against O(+>, but she eventually opted not to sue.
