The Brief:
It is a well known story that Prince and Vanity broke up as preparations for filming Purple Rain were being made. Vanity dropped out of the movie and a very pretty young lady, Patricia Kotero, was brought in and dubbed Apollonia to play Prince’s love interest and was installed as the lead singer in the girl group now called Apollonia 6 vice Vanity 6. Brenda Bennett and Susan Moonsie stuck around to round out the group. The girls released one self-titled album in 1984 and the lead single was “Sex Shooter” a song performed by the group in Purple Rain. The 12” for today’s post features the Dance Version of “Sex Shooter” and the album cut “In A Spanish Villa” on Side 2.

        Well, let me heap on the praise then. It’s one thing to do a vinyl capture, it’s another thing to do it with as much love and precision as you do it. Great to hear this track in all its extended glory (the way it should have been on the CD). It’s arguably the best version of the song. It’s also arguably the best song P wrote for A6. She can’t sing, but the tune is so funky it just doesn’t matter.
