Wax Poetic article (excerpt from Prince Purple Rain Studio Sessions book)

For those of you who haven't read the book about Prince's studio sessions (PRINCE AND THE PURPLE RAIN ERA STUDIO SESSIONS 1983-1984) here is an excerpt of it from the new issue Wax Poetics. This article was written for the magazine, but they had limited space and wanted to publish it online.

http://www.waxpoetics.com/blog/features/articles/prince_purple_rain_excerpt/

If you've read the book, this is a reminder of what is in there (now with some great visuals). If you haven't read it, this is a sample of the written contents.

Please forward this article to anyone who might enjoy a book about Prince's creative process.

I am hoping to do a 2nd book (probably 1985-86), but right now I'm focusing on getting the word out about this one.

Thank you all for the support.

My book PRINCE and The Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983-1984 was released in November 2017. (https://www.amazon.com/Prince-Purple-Rain-Studio-Sessions/dp/1538105497/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) or go to https://www.facebook.com/...s/10915961

Thank you for all your work.

I've shared the link on social networks.

I've purchased it of course, offered it as a gift to a friend and talked my GF into buying it, which she did. It's only 3 copies but that's all I could do so far at my little level.

I really hope there will be more books. This incredible body of work so needs to be documented as accurately as you do it nod
