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).
