PRINCE - "The Black Album" (Recorded 1987 - Released 1994)

[MP3]
[LAME 3.97 ENCODED At 320kb/s]
[CBR]
[NORMAL STEREO!]


Despite the mystique surrounding it, the Black Album has typically been viewed by fans and critics as a somewhat pro forma, rushed effort by Prince, although it is treasured by aficionados of the artist's funkier side, being as close to a straight funk album as anything he had recorded. The opening track also mentioned the title of the album as being The Funk Bible, which was a consideration during work on this project. The title refers both to the album's all-black cover design and to Prince's attempt to earn back his credibility among the Black pop audience with a release that was heavier on rhythm than its last few predecessors[citation needed] — in particular Around the World in a Day and Parade, both of which had been viewed as moves away from the funkier music he was known for on albums like 1999, Dirty Mind, and Controversy, that had once been his mainstay.
The album was originally intended as birthday party music for Sheila E., and it was never intended to have a public release.[citation needed] However, The album features one of the most shockingly unusual Prince songs, "Bob George," in which he assumes the identity of a cursing, gun-wielding alter ego who murders a woman and dismisses the figure of Prince as "that skinny motherfucker with the high voice." It is a direct answer to music critic Nelson George, who was very critical of Prince's music in the mid-1980s.[citation needed] Prince felt very attacked by him and retorted in this song. The "Bob" reference is his then manager Bob Cavallo, who found the track quite funny. "Bob George" features a growling monologue that is slowed down to the point of being almost unrecognizable as Prince. Fans not clued-in theorize that this song is intended as a commentary on the glorification of violence and misogyny often found in the form of hip-hop music known as gangsta rap, then just emerging as a style. It was more a tongue-in-cheek reference to the above named people.
Unusual features of the Black Album include the hip-hop parody "Dead on It," which disses so many emcees at the time indirectly by accusing them of being tone-deaf and lacking musicality. "Cindy C." refers to supermodel Cindy Crawford, and is quite playful in nature. The rap at the end of "Cindy C" was originally written by Steve "Silk" Hurley, and included on a song "Music is the Key," previously released by Chicago house-music group JM Silk, of which Hurley was the founder. Hurley would later go on to remix two of the songs from the "Gett Off" maxi-single, the Housestyle and Flutestramental versions.
The album contains several (but not first) instances of characters by way of either a sped up or slowed down vocal track by Prince (ones noted before were Camille tracks such as "If I Was Your Girlfriend," "U Got the Look," "Strange Relationship," and "Housequake," all originally intended for the aborted "Camille" project). One of the most interesting passages occurs halfway into "Cindy C.," where a woman can be heard in the right channel railing on Cindy for not being able to dress, dance, or even walk. The instrumental funk jam "2 Nigs United 4 West Compton" was revisited as a live song on the One Nite Alone... Live! album, but was hardly the same track. "Rockhard in a Funky Place" was originally a song for the aforementioned Camille project. After the album's fade out, dissonant feedback fades in, followed by Prince saying "What kind of fuck ending was that?" before fading out again. "When 2 R in Love" is the only ballad on the album, and although The Black Album was quickly pulled from distribution at the last minute, this song turned up on Lovesexy, released the same year.
Prince performed "Bob George," parts of "When 2 R in Love," and "Superfunkycalifragisexy" on his Lovesexy tour. "When 2 R In Love" was usually part of the piano medley in Act II, whereas the other two songs were part of the Act I segment, where Prince's evil side showed through (coinciding with the idea that the Black Album was evil, hence it's being pulled from release by Prince). Act II was his born-again segment, with more upbeat spiritual songs, highlighting most of the Lovesexy songs, and top-40 hits.
