Lotusflower, 3121, and Planet Earth as a triple album

I was just thinking of possibly making a Spotify playlist of tracks from Lotusflower, 3121, and Planet Earth, since a lot of songs were recorded in the same session. How would you sequence a triple album comprised of these songs? I'm looking for creative playlists in which the songs flow well, into and out of each other (not just the 3 album sequences crammed together). Has anyone attempted this?

Idk. Interesting question tho. I just don't like Planet Earth enough to put it's songs on regular rotation. The same could also be said of 3121. Imo. Of the three mentioned I like Lotus the best.
Anywho, maybe someone will leave a proper comment rather than rambling like myself wink

Never attempted this, but thought about how the weaker tracks on Lotusflower could have been replaced to make a more consistent rock album. In this fantasy, however, a Prince vocals version of Redhead Stepchild usually replaces 4ever and imagined studio versions of his Montreux renditions of All this Love and When I Lay my Hands on U replace FGFBFW and $, while Love Like Jazz is repalaced by the Montreux version.

Great thread! My thoughts, with outtakes and live tracks. Work in progres, hope some more outtakes will come in the future. Would love 2 hear Prince's version of Redhead Stepchild and also the Prince versions of the Elixer album. Black Sweat is from the Musicology periode, so I would put that on Musicology along with Silver Tonque and Glass Cutter.
Would love 2 hear your thoughts...thx.

Maybe go for a double album? Pretend it's Crystal Ball 1987 and you're a WB executive.

I might give this a go when I have a chance, sticking purely with streaming services and we'll have to use a bunch of the already existing segues.

Just keep them as they are.

Love and The One U Wanna C are two of my favourite Prince songs. Incredibly enjoyable pop music.

IMO, these are the ones that would go together:

Musicology/3121/Planet Earth

LotusFlow3r/MPLSound/20Ten

Some 3121 goes well with Musicology indeed. I like 2 listen 2 Musicology in this configuration. It has much more 'oempf!'. Glasscutter and Silver Tonque are great songs and deserve a place on an album. Planet Earth sounds a bit more organic then 3121 and Musicology I think especially Planet Earth, Lion of Judah and Resolution.

20Ten sounds pretty on itself also I think. But it's a nice thought, I'll try 2 work something out if something sounds good together.

Side 1- 03. Silver Tongue
