EXCLUSIVE: A Taste Of Prince & 3rdEyeGirl Covering “Even Flow” By Pearl Jam

Wow.

As we posted yesterday, PRINCE & 3rdEyegirl have been rehearsing an instrumental version of "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam for The Myth this Saturday in Minneapolis.

This version features a guitar duel between PRINCE & Donna Grantis that morphs into Aretha Franklin's version of "Rock Steady" before reprising the end vamp of "Even Flow".

Well, as promised, we were able to grab a snippet of PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl rehearsing "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam, which you can listen to below!

For apple users, listen below!

If the rumor of The Myth shows becoming one long show happens, we will let you know. Thank to Jon Bream for the shout on that btw.

Thanks to PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl along with NPG Records for allowing us to share this with you exclusively.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Just a taste....just a taste.....

Anon, Riffing on a well known guitar lick during a live performance is a little different from a full blown cover, no? Especially a cover put on an album for sale....

It would be nice to get more than a snippet, not everyone gets to go see him live. I will probably never get to see him but would love it if he would put a dvd together with a bunch of his live performances or at least let us buy some of the songs. Already bought the ones of 3rd eye girl but would buy just about anything he came out with. ALWAYS love me some PRINCE and by the way Happy Birthday to the best musician ever!!!

I'm thinking maybe this is Prince paying tribute to the late Mookie Blaylock basketball player number 10 who PJ name the album after ..way to go Prince...you re the man

Prince is actually a pretty sick guitarist. Just haven't heard it much since Purple Rain era. More like this Purple One!!!

Dr. Funkenberry. I did come correct. I have my opinion. I am a Prince fan just like you. That doesn't mean I have to agree and I thought the forum was used for honest opinions and feedback. So are you now going to start defending when the fans don't agree? You need to come correct.

I agree with this: "He should release a cd and a bluray of the Myth shows !"

He covers other artists stuff all the time and has a hissy fit when they cover his stuff

Hey Dr. Funkenberry! FYI your IP address changes based on where you are at the time you are making the post. So, someone could live in one area but traveling to another. Stop trying to be eye spy. Just because you don't agree with the comment doesn't mean it isn't valid. I thought that was what the forum was for. People should be able to post their opinions in an open forum without thinking you are trying to track them down.

I am a huge Prince fan and I don't really care about him doing a cover song. I want to see Prince, do Prince songs! He had so many hits why not do those. I chose not to get tickets to the show and I live close. The venue is in a terrible location. The prices are high to go see Prince with 3 girls that can't sing. Plus I am an old fan and since Prince prefers young people let them go to this show. Looks like your 22 year old manager made a bad decision but that's what you get when you go with people who lack business skills.

I truly believe that when the History books are written, the material of Prince and 3rdEyeGirl will be well sought after. Classic, refreshing, and there's no doubt these people take what they do serious. Wondering if it's the 535q or CAE 404 that's moving me. Great piece!

I love Prince. I just wish he'd cover Prince more often. I suspect some of the need for covers comes from him working with musicians who can't really recreate a lot of his catalog.

Prince rocks! That's all there is too it! I live in Austin, Tx., was on the city bus yesterday, & Paul McCartney passed in front of us after the police blocked us from traveling. Our bus driver hollared out "Paul McCartney!". I was writing on my notebook, & only saw Paul McCartney's arm & hand waving out of the escalade he was riding in. Ugh! After the excitement of Paul simmered on the bus, I brought up the subject of Prince comin here to play at SXSW. One guy said, along with myself, that we would have sat outside jus to hear the music, if we were not allowed in. Anotha guy said he had some friends who snuck in to see Prince at SXSW, by sayin they were part of the cookin staff. Gotta love ATX!(Austin Texas).

Since people have posted before about being a block away and actually not be, in the past, decided to search. If you're honest, there is nothing to hide. Just come correct. :)

I LOVE when people say they live close to a venue and say they are choosing not to go to a show and their IP address clearly shows they are in New York City. Wonder if a 22 year old would that mistake. Pfft.
