Here is the latest rehearsal jam from PRINCE & THE NPG. We have been waiting to share this with you and now, we finally can!!

As we first told you about late last week, this is Prince’s musical response to Terry Lewis asking if Prince needed an opening act for his upcoming Australian Tour and was also sent to Paul Peterson of Fdeluxe (Formerly The Family) before anyone else.

We promised you that it is hot, funky, dirty, and will leave you in puddle of sweat.

We want to thank PRINCE for sending this to us!  The rehearsal jam features “Mutiny” and…..”Ice Cream Castles”….Listen below……

We are loving it and digging it big time!  Australia, are you ready?  Good Gawd!

As we said over the weekend, Janelle Monae and Deliah are possible opening acts for Prince’s “Welcome 2 Australia” leg of the tour.  Will anyone else be coming along?

So what do U guys think of the latest rehearsal jam?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  1, 2, 3, 4, EVERYBODY ON THE DANCE FLOOR!!!

    i hate when ‘girl singers’ think the right way to sing is called ‘screaming’. Sussanah was tender, compared to this bulldozer. Give me the old versions any time!

    eye don’t know what 2 make of Prince’s attitude towards The Time, The Family and The Revolution.. all they want 2 do is play music with Prince and he continues 2 diss them. I’m glad tho he is playing obscure some obscure fave’s.. “Automatic” please!!!!

    Hey Katerina: FurY2007 is right! Shelby should STFU and it seems Morris Hayes is a one trick pony; all I EVER hear in EVERY ‘funk’ jam from him, is that thick layer of organ. C’mon man, play something else!

    What a Bummer: This is a exsanguinous Prince in Autopilot Modus . . . (funereally)

    Are you kidding us? I have not heard a more bland version of Mutiny, with all its funk stripped off. What is going on with the mic distortion, where’s the FUNK??
    This version of Mutiny bores me to death!

    Also the back vox are far too prominent, … can someone tell Prince Shelby J is not funky and we rather NOT hear her voice?!
