In the middle of the night, this FUNK landed in our inbox along with this message…..

On April 17, 2012, several bystanders in the streets of Chanhassen, Minnesota saw Paisley Park swaying back and forth 2 the sound of “Days of Wild and Loose”. This is a copy of the 19 minute rehearsal of that jam!

Thank U,
Prince and The New Power Generation

    Thanks for the Gift Prince,…..

    WOW! Has it really been since Jan. 2009 Since he released an album at the stores? This has to be the longest time between albums in his career.

    Great to hear the ‘old school’ jams, unfortunately my Toshiba tablet speakers melted due to the high extremes of funk which were emmited from them , in future I will have to stream this kind of undiluted, high octane, nitrouslike, funkeous residuous stylee of music through my 1000kw p-funk endorsed technics speakers!! Funk not only moves……….. it can remove. LOL

    Only 2 and a half STARS of 5!
    “Cosmic Day” is right! I don’t like that “DaysOfWild”-Style since that 1994-Days, too, don’t u remember? This is only a jam containing Ain’t Nobody, ReturnOfTheBombSquad, GetWild and Wild&Loose. A jam, a jam, a jam…very boring! “Why did Prince ruin this song(s)?”
    “Stop the violence!” (“Cosmic Day” is right.)
    We need a studio album. Or two.
    I need 7InchesOrMore, I need a Studio-CD!

    Did I just hear Prince curse at the 2:15 mark? “hooker, bitch and ho’/I don’t think so”. Maybe he has loosensed his stance on swearing, which perplexes me because throughout the jam he self-censors himself.
