So many words, what’s it all about?
Its about bootlegs, silly! Like most Prince fans I enjoy the unofficial recordings just as much as his albums. Over the years I have accumulated a fair number of these. But when reading about them online I became frustrated by reviews that were often two or three lines about shows . Sure, they tell me the recording quality and setlist but often not much more. I wanted more details! So I have taken matters into my own hands and decided to blog about every recording I own.
Why are you doing this?
Because I enjoy listening to these recordings, and I enjoy talking about them. My hope is I will be listening to some of my recordings that I wouldn’t normally listen to. But more than that I hope to give something back to the Prince community and make some new friends.
Its music, you should be listening to it, not writing about it
I know!! But I live at the end of the world, and growing up there simply wasn’t any other fans to share with. But now I can reach across the world and discuss Prince with many people- and I have a lot of catching up to do, I have 20 years worth of things to say! So really this blog is a product of my stunted isolation.
What kind of Fan are you?
I am a moderate, if there is such a thing in the world of Prince fans. Obviously I am enough of fan to put a fair amount of time into a blog, but I don’t collect memorabilia or merchandise associated with Prince. Nor do I listen exclusively to his music, I have a wide range of music I listen to, and until recently I would go months without listening to Prince. Of course that has changed now, I listen to a lot of Prince as I write this blog. I would describe myself as a Prince nut, but I’m not nutty.
Is this page going to be regularly updated?
Yes, absolutely. I plan to post weekly about shows. I write about three or four shows in advance, so I can give myself a break and still post weekly. I have no idea how many recordings I have, but I think at this rate it will take me twenty years to blog about them all.
