I love the book! I was just annoyed by some of the small errors and inaccuracies. One of the photos is of Prince and Terry Lewis backstage, but the caption says it's Jellybean? And the instances where the band is referred to as the Revolution, when they weren't known by that name yet, or when the photos of the Revolution on the Parade tour are accompanied by a caption referring to them as the New Power Generation? confused At one point, the Vanity 6 album was mentioned as having come out in 1984? I know these aren't serious issues, but I still get irked when I see things like this in books or tribute magazines. But I guess not everybody thinks like an obsessed superfan.

Another thing while going through the book: I remember seeing a recent interview with Lisa Coleman in which she said that Prince spray-painted the walls of her apartment for the back cover of Dirty Mind, but Allen Beaulieu says it was Prince's girfriend Kim's? Somebody's lyin'! haha

The photos are amazing to see, though.



Relevant?


Lisa Coleman: "I remember one time I was living with his girlfriend Kim Upsher in Crystal. He came knocking at the door: “Have you ever heard this?” It was [Ravel’s] “Bolero” — he’d just seen the movie '10.' "

Who are the people behind Jill?

The ones you can see the faces are Jill Jones, Kim Upsher(?), Andre Cymome, Prince, and Big Chick.

The other female in the photo was Kelly Jo Minter, an actress from films like, “Mask”, “Summer School”, “The Lost Boys”, “Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child”, “House Party”, and “The People Under The Stairs”.

That's NOT Andre. He was gone from the band by then.

It is backstage, so he could have been to a show and visiting. I think that might be JJ's mother

Just received the book! (Bay Area). The weight alone is impressive; hardcover and heavy. (Seems more like something you would spend $50.00 for.)

I got my copy today. Very nice book.

There are a few photos not present. Anyone have good quality versions of these?

I remember a series of photos of Prince and Dez just like these also black and white.

Not sure if Mr. Beaulieu took this last one but it's nice to see them happy and smiling.

Allen could have gotten $50 easily with no complaints.

I stand to be corrected(for once)

Jill jones,Kelly Minter,Andre Cymone on left & the blond lady is Jamie Shoop on the right.

Thanks A.B. & J.J.

I've talked to Allen a couple of time recently and he said what is in the book is just a portion of what he has. Hopefully this book sells really well and we'll get another one.

That photo is with other photos from the Dirty Mind era/tour. Andre was in the band at that time.

I guess it's possible, but that doesn't look like Andre to me either.

I got the book yesterday from Electric Fetus. There were three copies in the store.


.


The book is AWESOME and definitely worth every single penny. Pictures are absolutely incredible, and the text and stories included are great. This book is, in my opinion, a must have.


.


I gotta say though that there are a couple specific quotes in there that I'm rather sure will be a source of debate around here once more people have the book and it's being more intensely discussed. lol


.


Finally, I have a question for others who already have it: (I will preface my ? with the personal opinion that some of the photos aren't captioned very well in regards to crediting and/or identifying who is who in a particular photo). Ok, my question is, on page 62 there is a smaller photo on the bottom left-hand side, with the caption "Backstage, Dirty Mind tour" below it, and the pic is of Prince, Big Chick, and others standing in a hallway. There's a woman at the forefront of the photo in a red and white striped sweater -- I'm fairly sure that woman is a young Jill Jones? Yes or no? TIA for any replies smile


.


ps. Now go get yourself a copy of this book! biggrin




Yes. I couldn't figure out who the woman behind her was though. Any ideas?



This photo?



Is that vanity to the right of prince with the dark hair?

I was ready to fight with Amazon because my book hadn't arrived and I kept getting delay notices but I just got home and found two copies. woot!

Allen Beaulieu- Your work is amazing. I was a child of around 10 to 13 during the "Before The Rain" days and I have to tell you that many of your pictures are what helped make me the lifelong Prince fan that I would become. Thank you for doing what you did then and for sharing with us all now.

Orgers- What no one but me just totally LOVED this picture?

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Oh, I know, it's being discussed other places. He looks happy while getting ready to do whatever. I love that video. Prince personified.
