Possessed was released in a live version as the eighth track on the Prince And The Revolution: Live VHS in a double VHS case sometimes referred to as Double Live, (later re-released as a single VHS). No audio version of the track has been released.
Initial tracking took place on 24 May, 1983 at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio, Chanhassen, MN, USA, two months after the song's first live appearance. He recorded a new version on 17 March, 1984 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA for use in Purple Rain. A short instrumental portion plays in the movie in the background of a scene in which Morris Day tries to seduce Apollonia.
The song is dedicated to James Brown in the credits of the Prince And The Revolution: Live VHS. VIA PrinceVault.Com
