About 200-300 people showed up to Paisley Park Studios in what was being billed as a celebration for Record Store Day Weekend. What took place was a masterful performance by PRINCE and his band 3RDEYEGIRL followed by a soulsational set by Judith Hill!
PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL took the stage first performing "Wow", "FUNKNROLL", "Let's Go Crazy", ,"Pretzelbodylogic","Rock N Roll Love Affair" and "Stratus" along with a blistering drum solo by Hannah.
We hear Prince's guitar-playing was on fire last night with some that have seen the Minneapolis superhero a ton of times, absolutely blown away by his guitar work.
Judith Hill followed with about 40 minutes of funk. Each time they perform, the band is getting tighter, sweatier, and funkier!
Along with a few remixes from "Art Official Age" the unreleased "Revelations" was played with Prince and 3RDEYEGIRL joining in to play on top of it.
For the Record Store Day Weekend celebration, staff from Electric Fetus, Know Name, and even Amoeba Records in California were invited to attend the event for free. Others paid $30.00 for 3 performances and memorable night of fun.-DocFB
Diagnosis: PRINCE, 3RDEYEGIRL, Judith Hill, The NPG Hornz, and all of the musicians who performed last night would like to thank all record stores for their hard work, continued support of real musicians, and selling music directly.
The Old School Jam Of The Moment is "Mr. Telephone Man" by New Edition.
"Mr. Telephone Man" included lead vocals from Ralph Tresvant, Ricky Bell and Bobby Brown with a rap by Michael Bivins and was written by Ray Parker, Jr. and was released on November 28th, 1984.
The song reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was New Edition's 3rd number one song on the Billboard Black (sic) Charts.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Parker used the exact melody from a previous song of his entitled "A Woman Needs Love"...
NYC-based electro-pop artist & songwriter STALKING GIA has released her vibrant lyric video for the widely embraced single "Born Free,".
The singles game has been good to Gia - having seen success with her debut "War Paint" towards the end of 2014, and receiving a sizeable amount of blog-buzz with "Born Free" and its most recent remix by DJ SoySauce. NYLON referred to "Born Free" as "one super-cool anthem for self-expression," while Earmilk raves "she has a sweet, measured voice that portions out each note carefully and deliberately."-DocFB
