Lust U AlwaysLust U Always is an unreleased song recorded in 1982 at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The song paraphrases some lyrics from Annie Ross's song Twisted (notably covered by Joni Mitchell, and later played a few times on the One Nite Alone... Tour), but thematically fits in well with much of his 1981-2 material, concerning the narrator's uncontrollable lust for a woman.
It is not known if the song was intended for Prince's next album 1999 or any other project. It was submitted for copyright five years after its recording, on 14 December, 1987, and Prince offered it to English singer-songwriter Robert Palmer soon after, but he turned the song down.
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, and while Lust U Always was chosen by fans, the project was ultimately abandoned.
An American In Paris - 1989 OuttakeAmerican In Paris is an unreleased track recorded in late 1989 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track contains (non-lyrical) background vocals by engineers Michael Koppelman and Tom Garneau, marking their first musical performance on a Prince song. The song tells a story of a girl from New York who travels to Paris and meets a man (portrayed by Prince). They have a brief romance, and she then wants it to turn into marriage. He, however, already has a serious relationship, and ends the relationship by taking her to the top of the Eiffel Tower and running away while she has her eyes closed. The track is not known to have been intended for any particular project, and remains unreleased.
Moonbeam Levels ( best sound )Moonbeam Levels is an unreleased song recorded on 6 July, 1982 (the day before Lady Cab Driver), at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA.
It was never placed on a configuration of the 1999 album, but was considered for inclusion on the aborted Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic album (different from the 1999 album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic), and was included as the ninth and final track on the mid-January, 1989, configuration of the album before it was abandoned when Prince began work on the Batman soundtrack album.
Splash ( early version )Initial tracking took place on 1 August, 1985 at the Washington Avenue Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA (the day after the release of the Pop Life single, three days before recording Empty Room). The track was sent to Clare Fischer for string recording in July, 1986, but the song was not included on any known configurations of any album. It is likely that further work was done on the track prior to its eventual release, but recording dates are not known.
Up from belowUp From Below is an unreleased instrumental recorded on 5 January, 1986 during the so-called "Everybody's Jam" seven-hour session (that also produced Groove In C Minor, Groove In G Flat Minor, Junk Music, Slow Groove In G Major and Y'All Want Some More?) at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA. During the session, Prince primarily played drums. The track was included as the second track on the 22 January, 1986 configuration of The Flesh album, to be credited to The Flesh, which was ultimately abandoned.
