Before I drop some N’Orleans funk on y’all, I wanna mention an early Christmas gift I got for myself.
Remember when Prince performed in London last year for 21 nights in a row? A new artsy picture book is out to commemorate those gigs. So I bought one.
Along with the book comes a CD titled “Indigo Nights.” And on that CD are live recordings from Prince’s renowned after-show jams.
I’m streaming one of those tracks – “Alphabet St.” – on my Vox blog. Click here to listen. Because it’s blazing hot.
