Prince Special

The Albums:  Prince: Dirty Mind (1980) Prince: 1999 (1982) Prince: Purple Rain (1984) Hard to believe but Prince's landmark album Purple Rain turns 35 years this week (and the Purple One himself would have just celebrated his 61st birthday last week). In honor of these milestones and the fact that Prince is one of Heat Rocks' Triple Crown winners (i.e. his albums have been featured three times so far), we decided to offer you a "Best of Prince" episode that splices together highlights from our previous three Prince eps: #7: Anil Dash on 1999 #42: Meshell Ndegeocello on Purple Rain #77: Illa J on Dirty Mind Show Tracklisting (All songs by Prince unless indicated otherwise): When You Were Mine Dirty Mind Controversy Sister Partyup Sister Dirty Mind When You Were Mine Head D'Angelo: She's Always In My Hair Gotta Broken Heart Again D.M.S.R.
