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.
