#Repost @officialpaisleypark with @get_repost ・・・ #PaisleyParkArchives : Exhibition Series This outfit is instantly recognizable to most Prince enthusiasts: It was the cloud suit he wore in his video for #RaspberryBeret , which was in heavy rotation on @mtv in 1985. A close-up of the shoes illustrates how carefully matched his footwear was to his clothing throughout his career - he had a pair of these high-heeled boots from the Los Angeles shop Andre No. 1 custom-made to match practically every outfit.

#June30 #TodayinPrinceHistory #PrinceHistory #Prince #PrinceRogersNelson β€’ 1. 🎡Maceo Parker: πŸ“Œ(born February 14, 1943) is an American funk and soul jazz saxophonist, best known for his work with James Brown in the 1960s, as well as Parliament-Funkadelic in the 1970s. Parker was a prominent soloist on many of Brown's hit recordings, and a key part of his band, playing alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. Since the early 1990s, he has toured under his own name. β€’ 1. 🎡NPG Music Club (website): πŸ“Œwas Prince's online home from 2001 to 2006. It was launched to replace www.NPGonlineLTD.com as a further development to the concept of a club where Prince would distribute his music directly to customers. Its access was limited to subscribers for a $100 admission fee ($25 in the last years of the site) although non-members had access to a retail store. β€’ 1. 🎡Minneapolis Genius: πŸ“Œis the first collection of studio recordings by 94 East, the band name given to a number of tracks recorded by PepΓ© Willie and Prince with occasional other musicians (it is misleading to consider it an "album", as the tracks have been rearranged many times for reissues under different titles). β€’ 1. 🎡Strollin': πŸ“Œis the fifth track on Prince's thirteenth album Diamonds And Pearls, the first album to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation. In 1992, it was included as the b-side of Sexy M.F., the first single from the following album O(+>. While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in late August or early September 1990 at Warner Pioneer Studio, Tokyo, Japan ... β€’ COMMET/SHARE UR STORY BELOW IF U ATTENDED ONE OF THESE EVENTS βœŒοΈοΈπŸ’œ β€’ #NudeTour #SexyMF #Strollin #NPGMusicClub #NEWS #Welcome2AmericaEuro2011Tour #Twitter #MargieCox #94East #MinneapolisGenius #NewpowerSoul #TheNPG #PaisleyParkStudios #ChanhassenMinnesotaUSA #MaceoParker #JamalThomas #RodneySkeetCurtis #WillBoulware #BrunoSpeight #GregBoyer #RonTooley #Martha High #CoreyParker

#Repost @officialpaisleypark with @get_repost ・・・ On June 25, 1984, Prince released his most iconic album, Purple Rain, and changed the pop music world forever. 34 years later, Purple Rain endures as a masterpiece β€” not just Prince's most culturally and commercially impactful release, but a collection of material so potent and instantly recognizable that it can only be described as classic. From the bass-less and provocative pop of "When Doves Cry" to the righteous guitar riffs of "Let's Go Crazy," the songs from Purple Rain became massive hits on radio and @mtv and fueled the intrigue around his feature film of the same name, which was released just a month later. Prior to Purple Rain, Prince was an industry underdog, tirelessly working to carve out a niche for his funk-rock sound. By the end of the summer of 1984, Prince had become a global superstar and a leader of the pop culture zeitgeist. Although much of the world may have perceived Prince as a sudden, overnight success, Purple Rain is Prince's sixth full-length album and the result of nearly a decade of recording-studio experimentation, live improvisation and relentless creative reinvention. It captured Prince in a moment of pure discovery, combining the R&B, funk, and rock roots of his past with cutting-edge new wave, punk, and electronic sounds to create something wholly original and irresistible with his newly cemented band, @therevolution . Purple Rain isn't just an album; it's a road map for the direction that pop music would take over the next decade. What sort of an impact has the Purple Rain album had on your life? Has it changed the way in which you interpret or listen to music? Maybe the music represents your own outlook on life? Tell us how Prince's masterpiece has affected you over the years! #Prince #PurpleRain #PaisleyPark β€ͺ#Prince4Ever #PurpleArmy #PrinceArmy #MinneapolisGenius #PurpleYoda #Love4OneAnother @therevolution @PaisleyPark @PrnAlumniFDN @prince ‬ @theoriginalnpg
