PRINCE Fallon Update, L.O.L., Montreux 2013 DVD’s(?!?), Spreecast & More!

Prince On Jimmy Fallon  Image Credit: LV

U all knew that PRINCE was going to perform on Jimmy Fallon if U have been on this site and following us on Twitter for the past month.  We now know that PRINCE will be performing 2 songs on the show (1 for the show and the other a bonus song on the web only)....but we do not know which songs he will be doing.

Also, Mariah Carey will be interviewed on the show. It is actually the 4th anniversary of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that night.

Live Out Loud (L.O.L.) debuted on Friday as well and is now for sale on 3rdEyeGirl.com along with a LIVE version of "Bambi" with 3rd Eye Girl, which consists of Donna Grantis, Hannah Ford Welton, & Ida Nielsen.  The song was written by Liv Warfield.

On last weeks Spreecast with DrFunkenberry & Seth Everett, we were able to share with you some information on the new tracks "Boyfriend" (Demo) and "That Girl Thang" along with Montreux 2013 DVD info.

Here is a breakdown of that news:

1. "BOYFRIEND" was an outtake for a proposed compilation...This was the 2nd of 4 versions. Hence the demo tag.

2. "THAT GIRL THANG" was written, recorded and released all on the same day. (Feb. 17th)

3. MONTREUX JAZZ FEST 2013 IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT! THERE ARE 3 ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SHOWS PRINCE IS WORKING ON NOW. THE WHOLE EVENT WILL B FILMED FOR RELEASE IF THE RIGHT DEAL CAN BE STRUCK. THERE WAS NEVER AN OFFICIAL DVD RELEASE OF ANY MONTREUX PERFORMANCE. WHAT IS OUT THERE IS BOOTLEG AND MUSICIANS RECEIVE NO INCOME FROM IT.

Here is hoping that a Montreux deal can be reached!

We also were able to break the news of PRINCE playing the Stockholm Music & Arts Festival on August 4th..

We will be having another Spreecast this Wed. night which you can watch LIVE right HERE and access afterwards at any time.   What will happen or break during the show?  Will we have special guests this week?  Tune in and find out!

Stop whining: Just release the 2009 Montreux DVD and the Musician(s) WILL HAVE income from it... (until then the Musician support the Bootleg mafia;-)

All the spreecasts have all been pretty interesting, for those of you such as me with incompatible timezones, they are available for playback. Got some homework for you Doc, even if you only answer on the spreecast, could you please try get some credits for Boyfriend (Demo) and the year it was recorded? Like the Bambi rehearsal, I’m good with just audio (lossless), but if only available in video format I would like to respectfully suggest that the audio track is made available in highest quality. 3rdeyegirl.com gets a thumbsup for me, I’ve bought everything other than the mp3 tracks(stickler for quality), and L.O.L (personal taste). ALL GOOD. I will be going to all 3 nights in Montreux, so last week’s news about 3 different shows confirmed what to me was a very hopeful longshot. ALL GOOD! THERE WAS NEVER AN OFFICIAL DVD RELEASE OF ANY MONTREUX PERFORMANCE. WHAT IS OUT THERE IS BOOTLEG AND MUSICIANS RECEIVE NO INCOME FROM IT. For whatever reason, Prince didn’t release it, and it just happened to fall off the back of a truck….. I didn’t pay for it and he didn’t get paid for it, but I’m all good to square him up for it. Putting aside an associated minor matter (lotusflow3r.com), I actually tried to make a payment via paypal to the email address used to buy Screwdriver Live video, but got a message “This recipient is currently unable to receive money.” Riddle me this Doc – I didn’t steal it, I didn’t sell it, if I try to do the right thing to pay Prince for it, do I risk prosecution? Not long to go for Jimmy Fallon, let’s see….

Setting my dvr RIGHT NOW for Fallon! That way, i can watch it over and over. SO happy 4 a Montreux dvd1 I had no idea the other wasnt official. I bought it! I sure hope a deal can be struck.

I love all the exciting news! The new Montreux shows on official DVD would be awesome - since I will be there it would be heaven to be able to watch it all again and again! :) I hope a deal will work out! And about "That Girl Thang" - written, recorded and given to us on the same day ... this is extra special and I'd like to thank Prince for this unique treasure. :) Now I am very curious what he will play on Friday, and I hope for two of the new songs!

Excited for Jimmy, i hope he performs something entirely new and completely by him. No 3rdEyeGirl or whatever. L.O.L. , besides the positive message, is one of the worst things i have ever heard come out of Paisley....and i'm no negative hungry muppet, i'm almost always impressed with Prince's output, but L.O.L is shocking. It's like some Kelly Clarkson nonsense. I'm all for the new Montreux being put out instead of the 2009 show as i've already seen most of the 2009 one over the net. As long as it's on par or better than the masterful performance and musicianship on display in the 2009 one, i'm ALL good! 2013, although i'm ecstatic that he's extremely active, it's been hit and miss so far, hitting good with the vault demos on 3rdEyGirl.com and missing with the promoted singles ala Screwdriver (although the remix was a huge improvement). Either way, bring it on! I know Prince has some mad, creative, otherworldly, innovative tracks ready for release at some point!

Well it's good to know that he will be performing (albeit in a limited venue) while in NYC. Hopefully this means he is bringing his band(s) and will be in the mood to do something more while in town.
