I thouight it would be fitting to post this megamix as the final record in my Prince tribute series. With such a prolific body of work it is hard to fit every masterpiece into one medley but at least we can look back on some of Prince’s greatest moments and smile.

“The Prince Mix” is a megamix created by Ultimix remix service and originally appeared on Ultimix Issue 25 (1988) and as part of a five 12″ compilation of the services best medley’s. The track was remixed by legendary remixer Bradley D. Hinkle who also remixed for Hot Tracks in the early 80’s.

“Kiss” is a 1986 single originally recorded by Prince and The Revolution.

An industrial cover of the song was released in November 1986 by British alternative rock-dance crossover band Age of Chance. Bass player Geoff Taylor described it as: “We basically removed the sex and replaced it with lump hammers.”

The single reached No. 1 on the UK Indie Charts in late 1986. It spent 11 weeks on the mainstream pop charts in the United Kingdom, starting at 6 December 1986 and peaking at No. 50 in early 1987.

In New Zealand it charted for four weeks, peaking at No. 21.

In the United States, it spent six weeks on the Billboard Dance Club Play chart, peaking at No. 35 on 23 May 1987.

“Holly Rock” was the fifth single taken from the motion picture soundtrack “Krush Groove” by American singer, drummer, and percussionist Sheilas E., who also performs the song in the film. Written and produced by Prince (credited to Sheila E.), “Holly Rock” failed to chart.

Prince also uses the term “Holly Rock” in Dream Factory, which was recorded later in 1985. Hollyrock is the name used for Hollywood in the TV cartoon series The Flintstones, which may have inspired the track.

Tyka Nelson – L.O.V.E. (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th May 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

Hype-Sticker4

Originally posted August 2, 2011

“L.O.V.E.” is the second single by American singer Tyka Nelson. Nelson’s main claim to fame thus far has been that she is the sister of Prince. According to Tyka, Prince offered her use of his Paisley Park studios and money to fund an album, but she wanted to get a contract on her own. It took her quite a few years, after going to college and having two kids, but she finally signed a deal with Chrysalis/Cooltempo Records in 1988.

“L.O.V.E.” was produced in part by Prince collaborator David Z and went mostly unnoticed prompting the label to drop Tyka soon after.
