Help me figure out what concert this is from...

A track came up randomly on my iPod yesterday that I'd never heard before, and I'm having trouble tracking down info on it. It's from the "Not Bad For a Girl" boot, and it sounds like it's from a Sheila E show, and Prince comes up on stage and they perform Girls & Boys and Holly Rock together. It's the only clip that I've ever heard where Prince does the entire lyrics to Holly Rock, rather than just a couple of line. If I had to guess, I'd say it's from the mid- to late-80s, based on the instrumentation. This guest appearance by Prince isn't listed on Princevault.

So help me out, Prince experts-- what concert is this from?

Was that from an after show or the tail end of a Sheila E concert? I've have it. It's very minimal, right? Like almost just drums and guitar?

.

7th St. Entry at First Avenue. Not a guest spot but a spontaneous appearance of the two.

Free the music.

So it's just bass and drums? Interesting. I'm a fan of Cloreen B. Is this similar?

Just check out "Purple Rush Vol. 6" (SAB #354–359), for example, and you will find both on there … that 7th St. Entry appearance from 11 July 1985 and also Prince’s 8-minute surprise performance of Cloreen Bacon Skin from First Avenue, 16 May 1983.

It would most likely be from a Parade era show

Sheila E and a few band members would sometimes join Prince's show and sometimes Prince or Prince and a few band members would join Sheila's show

.

Prince also lead the vocals on HollyRock during his 6.7.1985 Birthday show/Masquerade Ball

.

Since a lot of records of Sheila E and other protege shows were not kept well(it seems) we might not be able to tell what show.

Excellent, thanks!! That's why I couldn't find it on Princevault-- I was looking for guest appearances by Prince at Sheila E shows.
