Anyone out there torrenting Prince’s records suck: the man made his purple preferences plain, and we should respect that. To purchase an illegal bootleg would be similarly wrong.
BUUUUUT I figure that trading live tapes are okay. Hell, I kinda have to think trading live tapes are okay. For a Deadhead not to believe that is like an American not believing in free beverage refills: it’s coded into the virus.
So I’ll compromise and say just this: if one were to go to a safe harbor populated by scurvy privateers and search for a two-word phrase that is the equivalent of “the son of the King is not dead,” then one would find some great stuff, including a ’92 AUD with the New Power Generation that is absolutely sterling and I am rocking out to currently.
Don’t tell anybody, though: Prince is dead, but his legal team is still on retainer.
Also: this was the only Prince Stealie I could find. Someone needs to make a good one with the Artist Formerly Known As Symbol in the head.
