Wow. While rehearsing for his "Welcome 2 Chicago" tour dates, Prince & The NPG along with his 11 piece horn section, Prince sent in this beautiful and powerful rendition of "Old Friends 4 Sale" that is stunning to the ears.
To my knowledge, this song has never been performed live. Some of you may know the history of the song, being recorded in the 80's, and before an official version was released in the late 90's, the lyrics were changed. The story goes that the lyrics were too personal, so they were changed. There is a lyric change here as well.
If this is the kind of songs and instrumentation that Chicago can look forward to, these shows are going to be amazing.
I would like to thank PRINCE & The NPG for allowing us to share this with you exclusively. Absolutely beautiful. Very nice.

Jazz artist Melody Gardot has just released "The Absence" her 3rd CD. This time, she hooks up with noted guitarist and film composer Heitor Periera.
Gardot's third album reflects her time spent travelling the globe in support of her two previous releases, Worrisome Heart and My One and Only Thrill. After exploring the deserts of Morocco, the tango bars of Buenos Aires, the beaches of Brazil, and the streets of Lisbon, the Philadelphia-based artist captured the essence of these exotic locales in her new music.
Gardot found her voice during music therapy sessions after she was hit by a car at age 19. Now 25, the singer also models for luxury brands Lanvin and Piaget in between sold-out concerts around the globe.
