I’m going to start posting weekly links to some of my favorite lesser-known jams every Monday.
Personally, I enjoy discovering new or new-to-me old music, and I assume there are others out there who do as well, so here goes:
This week’s installment is Prince’s The Ballad of Dorothy Parker off 1987’s Sign O the Times.
On the surface, the track sounds so sparse and simple, but there’s so much going on. Those drum patterns are nuts! Funky and chill. Top shelf Prince, right here.
Here’s a bonus live version.
