Prince @ the Capri Theater Minniapolis MN 1.5-6.1979

Is there an actor/musician in the wings, a now-unrecognized future star that will someday rival the artistry of Prince, whose January 1979 concert at the Capri is ranked as one of his five best, and at which he signed his first recording contract?

Owen Husney’s dismissal from the Prince camp came at a critical juncture in the artist’s career. Prince spent the summer and fall of 1978 assembling a backing group, in hopes of touring behind For Youir?source=bk&t=dystdancpar0f-20&bm-id=default&l=ktl&linkId=8b185dae79dd4f0672323b55435b2b04&_cb=1486324819811 the following year. It didn’t go entirely to plan; he wouldn’t embark on his first tour until November of 1979, after recording and releasing a much more successful second albumir?source=bk&t=dystdancpar0f-20&bm-id=default&l=ktl&linkId=6316fd4da0705a831dc80570b37f9194&_cb=1486325202421. But the musicians he brought together would nevertheless determine his artistic direction for the following decade: providing the nucleus for the Revolution, the band with whom he would eventually conquer the world.

The setlist is unknown in full. One of his former cohorts said he was not well recieved by the audience in a 1990s interview and he was upset. I think Chris Moon confirmed this as well.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

It is the struggles that make you. I bet he loved proving that he was a contender!

Sad that it wasn't till 2004 when the "old guard" rockers had his talent shoved in their faces that they sat up and took notice. RnB and funk already knew!

No.

There's a documentary on YouTube whereby several people all the performane a dud, that he wasn't even close to being ready to tour, and that it was boring. WB execs were like, meh, and Prince's own cousin Charles Smith admits it was bad and that P did a RollingStones exit from the theatre without telling anyone...

Yes I saw that documentary. And that's what I meant when I said it is the struggles that make you. The struggle forces us to learn, change and grow. In other words....embrace the sucky parts of life.

Realised that some of the shots are from Mobeen Azfar's book - that volume is great, stories and photos. Classic shots covering his whole career. One from the Controversy era, with Prince holding Dr Fink like a dog.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name
