Hurry & Watch These Prince Rehearsal Videos Before King Purple Shuts Them Down!

Thanks to the folks at The Daily Swarm, we can all enjoy, albeit temporarily, Prince's rehearsal videos from 1984. Coincidentally, that also happens to be the same year that I declared to The Creator that I wanted to grow up to be either Apollonia or Wendy or Lisa and told my mother that I needed to paint my room purple. Hurry up and watch these before King Purple takes them away. And, yes, they were filmed on an old Fisher Price camera so wipe that screw face off your mug and enjoy a trip down Prince's light fantastic. "When Doves Cry" is below and more lace-infused badness is after the bounce.


"Erotic City"

"Possesed"


"All Day All Night"


"Irresistible Bitch"


"Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden"


"17 Days"

    These are awesome! It appears that Prince has come to terms YouTube by allowing his music and videos on the website.

  8. I'm a Prince groupie from 11, all the way back to his For You Album! I was already into him before Purple Rain, and I have to say, this brings back memories! I saw him sing "When Doves Cry" at the Nassau Coliseum in NY and let me tell you that song went on forever! Couldn't tell me I wasn't a chocolate Appollonia! LOL! Loving this!

  9. Nice, thanks for posting.

  10. I'm in purple heaven!!!!!! This is awesome! 17 Days, Erotic City, and Irresistable Bit$$ are three of my all time favorite Prince songs....the crazy thing about all three of these songs is that all wer b-side singles!!! Thank you for posting.
