In the 90s I had a big kick of searching out 12" singles on vinyl. I was always truly satisfied to find a Prince single, as there was always a remix, a b-side, and a remix of the b-side. The singles were a must if you wanted to be complete.
The Prince era that I am most drawn to is his 80s albums - Around the World In A Day, Parade, Sign O the Times, Lovesexy, Batman and Graffiti Bridge. (I wonder why? I mean, it wasn't like this was the time period in my life in which I was extremely receptive to music and my youth.) Everything before and after is a loss to me.
This one is my second favorite behind Around the World, and just in front of my third favorite, Parade. I've got all the b-sides, some demos, and all the remixes I could fit on one disc. I had troubles coming up with a decent cover for the remix disc, as all the singles were packaged in those plastic sleeves with stickers. And there aren't many pics on the net that I could find that would've been suitable.
I always thought this cover was hilarious... What does that flower pistil on the white flower look like to you? So close to Prince's lap? Hmmmm...
