‘The Voice’ was the second Paisley Park Records album recorded by the legendary Mavis Staples. The title track from that album was released as a single in the US, France and Europe. In the US and Europe, I could only find releases that featured the album version. But, Discogs lists French commercial and promo 12″ releases featuring a remix of the track by Prince. Princevault lists a US promo 12″ with the same catalog number as my French copy. Either way, it appears to me that the Extended Remix Edit was only available on vinyl releases. The song itself was written by Prince with Rosie Gaines, Francis Jules and Tony M also receiving writing credits. Production credits go to Prince, Alan Leeds and Peter Edge. And, yes, that’s Tony M rapping on the record…
