Is the Pegasus piano on any officially released recording

I did the PP tour last Saturday.
When we got to the part of the tour where the Pegasus piano sat, the tour guide was teasing us asking if we wanted to see it open. As he had his back to the piano telling us why he cannot do it, a tall man dressed in black pulled out the plug and opened it up for us.
I was thankful for that moment and i was wondering if it has been on a official recording. I heard it on the nothing compares to you video .

It's not in the "Nothing Compares 2 U" video because it was about 7 years before he owned it. The video was filmed January 27, 1992. The piano was purchased probably in 1999 sometime.

You can see it in the Rave Un2 The Year 2000 DVD, mainly when he crowd surfs over to it, plays the beginning of "Nothing Compares 2 U", then crowd surfs back to the stage to finish the song with Rosie Gaines.


It was also in the lobby at Paisley Park during the 2001 celebration, I believe.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

it's used in the artwork for the "one nite alone" solo piano album.

could it be possible that he actually recorded "arboretum" on it when it was
in the lobby at paisley park? because, you can hear the doves during that
song, and i think it's also mentioned in the linernotes that they are on the
song. plus, you can hear him walk away across a hard floor at the end.

hmmm

just wondering how the logistics of recording something in such quality as
the "arboretum" instrumental would work, from a piano in a lobby.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps
