3rdEyeTV Rolls Out More PRINCE Rehearsals & Rarities For 4th Night In A Row!


It was a Saturday night PuRpLe party with 3rdEyeGirl TV tonight!

Night 1 was “A Love Bizzare” live from Paisley Park.  The second night was Montreux clips such as “She Spoke 2 Me” played.  The 3rd night was “The Beautiful Experience” and tonight was the Saturday night purple party!

If U haven’t already, make sure to sign up for 3rdEyeGirl TV via livestream to get an email alert as they go LIVE!

1st, they let us know that “Ida was getting cocky on the bass, saying she will beat him on the bass tonight.” Then “Donna and Hannah were laying down their parts on “Breakdown” at Paisley Park in Studio C.”

Then we presume Joshua Welton was with his back to us with the message “Stay Wit It!” on his outfit started playing “Rock & Roll Love Affiar Remix 7 instrumental” and then “Nothing Compares 2 U” with Rosie Gaines.

Then it got real interesting! To find out what was played, click here for more….

The NPG and the NPG horns along with a funky guitar player went into a long Sly & The Family Stone jam along with video so we can see Hannah playing the drums. The video went off  with an NPG Records 2013 trademark. Then the jam continued with audio only and a picture of the horn players with more of a Sly jam and a little Maceo for good measure.

They then covered Emeli Sandé “Next To Me” with Shelby J. and Liv Warfield really chiming in.  I could hear Elisa Fiorillo as well.

They then went into a rehearsal of “Musicology” with PRINCE on vocals and Shelby J. very clear on this.  It was a long funky jam for sure.  “PRINCE gonna be there, but U got to call em!”

Then while in “Musicology”, PRINCE calls out for “EXTRALOVEABLE” and the horns go into it.  Here comes the groove!  Not! As soon as the horns were getting warmed up, the audio of the rehearsal fades! Nooooooo!

OK, we need a video of this version of “EXTRALOVEABLE”  like…LAST WEEK!!!

They then showed some “21 Nights In London” footage including  “Le Freak”  to “A Love Bizzare” and “Pass The Peas”….

Then footage of Montreux was showed again this time “All Shook Up”…

The night ended with an instrumental version of “Q.U.E.E.N.” by Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu.  This time, a guitar part sure to be the funkiest guitarist in Minneapolis was laying it down!

Then just like it was all over, advising everbody (without the Y) to get some sleep and they would see us in a few daze.

Make sure to sign up HERE!!!!!

Can U keep up?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Q: How much would U pay 4 these 2 be archived in the future?

    As long as the quality is 720p or 1080p I’m willing to pay. Prince throw them up on 3rdeyegirl.com and I’ll purchase it all. I hate the Dr. always teasing us “how much are you willing to pay”.

    Man, just get on with it and upload it, if you want our cash you know how to get it.

    Quite nice surprises but most of them in low quality. I would not pay for datafiles. Still a nice effort and an addition to the collection. Strange that the snippets from Montreux 2009 were showing the bootleg version of the show.

    Amazing stuff! I appreciate these live events; they engage and surprise ! Let’s consider however that there are fans living in other timezones! So a longer availability should be considered. Otherwise these fans are forced to look for pirate captures of the original live stream … And that ain’t no good at all for the artists nor the fans!

    Loving the live streams, I’ve seen 3 and the varied selections from Love Like Jazz and She Spoke to Me to Queen, Let’s Work and Pass the Peas, were great and everything in between is a gift. I would certainly pay for other live stream events especially a full concert and download-able performances. I’m thankful to be privy to these broadcasts and the creativity Prince, 3rdEyeGirl and the NPG are bringing. Love you all, peace!

    Here are my thoughts, I also have a busy lifestyle, work, etc, well I chose to be virtually sleepless for the past 4 days, worked 10 hour shifts got home, logged on livestream wait hours till wee hours to catch what was offered FREE and FUN! This was a spur of the moment thing sorry Prince couldn’t “accommodate” Ur lifestyle.. I chose to not sleep and still tend to my daily obligations because it was AMAZING, worth it to me and a one of a kind experience…It’s called Live Stream not Netflix sorry for those who didn’t make it…

    Was great 2 hear, but I do sympathize with the people who do not have that type of a time flexibility.

    What about them?

    Be good to all!!

    Don’t overcharge for gifts…

    what goes around comes around…..

    Having the opportunity to see & hear things live is always Priceless. But for those who are at work and have other responsibilities they miss out on being able to enjoy it. That is why I would archive my radio shows so that those who wanted to hear what I played could tune in when it was convenient for them. It is great that these things are being shared because after all they are too good to sit in a vault collecting dust. Just need to find a way to make it possible for even more to enjoy at their leisure. Paid or otherwise. 😉

    So Amazing!!!! I can’t even believe this has been happening for 4 days! I would gladly pay $50 to see these jams again 🙂

    I concur…these no notice limited time frame things don’t work for us who actually have lives and responsibilities. I have chidden, a business, etc…and I even tried to sign up “in case” it worked out at a time when I could watch, but the email did not direct me anywhere but back to the page I had already entered my email with nowhere to complete to process for whatever reason, so I never got any emails anyway…

    Love ya Prince, my brother, but this is all rather irritating for those who’d like to actually hear these sessions…on their own schedule…

    The audio of the song played while the horn’s section’s pic was up, is called ‘Sing a Simple Song’ by Sly & The Family Stone.

  • TheBeautifulOne

    I would prefer purchasing the remixes and concert footage rather than access to an online archive. As for the live stream, while it’s fun, streaming pre-recorded stuff is not truly live streaming, is it? And please remember fans live across many time zones and do not live a rock’n’roll lifestyle 😉

    I’d love to be able to watch these, but in the UK the times are always like 7am in the morning. I’d definately pay to way them back though!

    As far as how much, well, look at it like a DVD release, only digital. I’d pay £10-£15 for a concert DVD & £20 for a concert Blu-Ray so if I could download them to keep, I’d pay the same direct to Prince!

    If it’s only to watch once, in the UK, rentals are £3.49-£4.49 – again, I’d be glad to pay that direct to Prince, given the opportunity.

    Signed up, and great to hear on a Sunday afternoon in Australia. As I am usually at work when 3rd Eye Girl is broadcasting, happy to pay a fee for the archive. That was fun(ky)!!

    Couldn’t agree more Doc. “Extraloveable Reloaded” deserves a video. Loved 3rdEyeTV tonight. •
