  • Tears For Fears - Hammersmith Palais London 18 April 1983
    Tears For Fears - Hammersmith Palais London 18 April 1983 Tears For Fears - Hammersmith Palais London 18 April 1983 A debut on Live and Loud! For Tears For Fears. I’ve been looking on and off for a few years for a good early recording with more than a few tracks on it and finally found this recording - a BBC recording made for broadcast in America. And then I found 2 versions - 1 totally drenched in tape hiss but lots of sound to play with, and the other a lower bit rate mp3 which had very little tape hiss but also very little top end so it sounded very dull and thin. So I went to work on the noisy one - and while I COULD have removed every last bit of hiss, doing that in my opinion ruins the recording as it also removes a lot of the signal - crowd noise especially sounds weird, like its underwater! So I removed most of the noise but not all, so the recording still breathed a bit. So while this gig IS a little more noisy than most on the archive, it still sounds really good. I then spent a quite a while with EQ, separating out the stereo image and the space between the instruments to make them all stand out a bit better; that done I did some final mastering to add a bit of punch. This is another recording where the sound man took a song or 2 to get the levels right but despite that I hope you agree that this gig is the best stereo representation of early Tears For Fears playing live.

  • Rough (1980)
    Rough (1980) Rough is an unreleased song originally recorded in May - June 1980 at Prince's Wayzata Home Studio, Wayzata, MN, USA during recording sessions for the Dirty Mind album. At some point between June 1980 and April 1981, he recorded a new version with Alexander O'Neal, but recording details are not known. In 1984, the song was considered for The Family, but no new recording was done on the track at the time, as it seemed inappropriate for the group's style. It was later considered for Jill Jones' first album Jill Jones, and her vocals were recorded on 8 January 1986, along with saxophone overdubs by Eric Leeds (four days before recording Conversation Piece and Last Heart). It was rejected from the album, however, and Prince later offered it to Joyce Kennedy of the band Mother's Finest, who turned the song down without recording a version. The lyrics describe a tough girl, who will take your money, your self respect and your personality. "She keeps her money in a garter belt. Next to a .38. If you get the chance to take her out. You better not be late." The song is commonly incorrectly referred to as Too Rough, Tough or Too Tough.

  • The Glamorous Life
    The Glamorous Life The Glamorous Life Studio Original 1983 version with Prince vocals The Glamorous Life is the sixth and final track on Sheila E.'s first album The Glamorous Life, and, four weeks before the album's release, The Glamorous Life was released as the album's first single; it was, therefore, the first song to be credited to Sheila E.. The Glamorous Life was written by Prince, but credited to Sheila E.. In 1986, the Club Edit was included as the second track on The Glamorous Club Dance EP, a Japan-only EP of extended versions of Sheila E.'s singles. On 19 June 2013, an instrumental rehearsal of The Glamorous Life was streamed live on 3rdEyeGirl LiveStream TV for 3 minutes. Initial tracking took place on 27 December 1983 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (the day before In A Spanish Villa and Next Time Wipe The Lipstick Off Your Collar), and the song was originally intended for Apollonia 6 until Prince began to work with Sheila E. in February 1984, at which time he set the song aside for her. Sheila E.'s vocals were recorded in the first few days of April 1984, also at Sunset Sound. The Glamorous Life is notable for featuring the first use of saxophone on a Prince-related track, played by Larry Williams. The track also features the first released appearance of David Coleman (Lisa Coleman's brother) on a Prince-related track, playing cello.

  • Come Elektra Tuesday
    Come Elektra Tuesday Come Elektra Tuesday is an unreleased song recorded on 26 May 1985 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (two days after Hello, the same day as Heaven and Stella And Charles, two days before Polka-Dot Tiger). The song features Jill Jones on background vocals. It is unknown if this song was intended for any project at the time, but during Prince: A Celebration in June 2000, computer screens at Paisley Park Studios offered names of a selection of tracks which users could vote on for inclusion on Crystal Ball Volume II, but Come Elektra Tuesday was not chosen by fans, and the project was ultimately abandoned.
