...A PURPLE SUSPICION....

....that Prince wrote Poetry? I mean obviously his lyrics were poetry, but did he ever put out any poetry books or poetry pieces that weren't his music? I just saw the lyrics printed on the back of the Purple Rain vinyl and even though some of it is PROBABLY mumbo jumbo knowing how he liked to mess with us, I also found it pretty intriguing. Is there anything out there that we know of?

He also published lyrics in the Neo Manifesto book, which I guess you could consider a poetry (lyric) book.

Does anyone own 21 NIGHTS?
How is it? It's very inexpensive on amazon given what's happened this year.

I bought it the day it came out!

The book is, well... fairly rubbish but it's so full-on Prince it's entertaining in its own way. Worth owning as a fan. As a read I'd rank it on par with watching 3 Chains o' Gold.

The CD is alright, I believe there's a lot of overdubs which kind of ruin the "live" ness of it but it's still a good listen. Obviously it could have been much better but you know yourself, you were either on board or you weren't.

I bought it the day it went on sale at my local book store. Love the book (which had a sleeve cover) and the pictures and the cd is awesome.

Worthwhile item to have in ones Prince collection.

I bought it for € 8 a couple of years ago and I've seen it eaven cheaper. So it's hardly a collector's item. It's a photo book of the London shows mixed with the lyrics of the Planet Earth album. And contrary to most, I liked the live CD.
