Beautiful pics! I've never seen the top one. Thanks for sharing


If my memory serves me...wasn't all the album photography taken by Prince?

Some of it was I think. He actually hired a famous photographer -something Horst?? I think, who was very old at the time, to take the pictures. On one of their recent FB streaming videos St Paul and Susannah told the story of when they were posing for the shot on the stairs Prince took the camera from the photographer and started taking pictures razz lol Not sure which ones ended up to be his, if any, on the album though.

I was thinking the one of Susannah at the bottom was taken by Prince but not sure. I seem to remember there were more photos of her taken by him.

That would make sense. I'm thinking only the black and white pics may have been taken by the photographer.

Yes, that's what I'm thinking as well.

This photo is during the Purple Rain tour 84 or early 85. He proposed to her in 86

* Correction, this was in Florida during the PR tour in April 1985

No, He gave her the ring right after Bobby Z's wedding (and after recording Empty Room) in August of 1985 - before they went to Paris to continue prepping for UTCM. I think she is wearing the diamond ring during The Family's only live show at 1st Avenue August 13th, 1985. Check out the video on YT. She has a big sparkly rock on the left finger. I think the ring in this pic is just fashion jewelry.

By Summer 1986 she had moved out of the Galpin house but they were still together - at least per her discussion with Toure....

Here's clip of The Family performing NC2U at 1st Avenue. It's dark, but at about 3:20-22 you can see the sparkly rock on her finger, and a close-up of it at about 6:29....

What a great performance of this song!!! Paul's vocals were fantastic and Eric was killing it on Sax. Paul said Prince was watching at the side of the stage, and gave him a big hug after the show. SUCH a bummer that they didn't have more shows back then.

Thank you! I was thinking she was wearing a ring at the Detroit Birthday Show as well. I seem to recall seeing one during the performance of 'AnotherLover'

Possibly. She may have given it back when she officially left MN that October.

Check out the video I posted above of the NC2U performance of The Family in 1985. Seems 6 Carats will create quite the sparkle smile
