In 1990, Kid Creole & The Coconuts recorded the Prince composition “The Sex Of It” and released it as the first single from their album ‘Private Waters In The Great Divide’. According to PrinceVault, Prince not only wrote the song but also co-produced it and performed on the recording, though his musical input was not credited. The commercial release was posted here back in 2011 but, today we will take a listen to the “Tropical Mix” from a white label promo that was only issued in the UK. Notes from the release page at Discogs say that the “Tropical Mix” is exclusive to this 12″ and includes samples from other Kid Creole And The Coconuts songs. I faintly recall someone requesting this record back in 2011 after I posted the commercial 12″ release, good things come to those who wait?
