Prince Music From Graffiti Bridge on 2LP
1990 Soundtrack to Prince's Third Feature Film featuring a Reunited Time, Mavis Staples, Tevin Campbell & George Clinton!
Prince arrived on the scene in the late-70s, and it didn't take long for him to upend the music world with his startling music and arresting demeanor. He rewrote the rulebook, forging a synthesis of black funk and white rock that served as a blueprint for cutting-edge music in the '80s. He made dance music that rocked and rock music that had a bristling, funky backbone.
From the beginning, Prince and his music were androgynous, sly, sexy and provocative. His colorful image and revolutionary music made him a figure comparable in paradigm-shifting impact to Little Richard, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and George Clinton.
After topping the charts with his 1989 soundtrack to the first Batman film, Prince made another of his own movies with 1990's Graffiti Bridge. The double-album soundtrack – with performances by Prince, a reunited Time, Mavis Staples, Tevin Campbell and George Clinton – is another compelling concept and collection, particularly the impassioned singles "Thieves in the Temple" (No. 6) and "New Power Generation."
