Mayte (1992) Broken Wings GER 12″

Very Brief:
All hardcore Prince fans and most casual fans have read or heard the story of how Prince and Mayte met. What a lot of people may not know is that Mayte recorded a couple of singles, sans Prince, that were released in Germany and The Netherlands in 1992 & 1993. The first of those singles was a cover of Mr. Mister’s “Broken Wings”. The track was produced by Marc Cassandra, Mayte is credited with Vocals and Paris Red is credited with Guest & Backing Vocals. Also included is the track “I Don’t Care” for which Mayte  is credited for Writing and All Vocals on the record label. The vinyl 12″ features the Groovy Extended Mix and the Ambient Mix of “Broken Wings”. The single was also released on various CD formats that included the Groovy Extended Mix, the Groovy Radio Mix  and the Fly Away 7” Mix. The Ambient Mix was not included on any of the CD releases.

In addition to her singing and dancing talents, Mayte is now an author as well. Not scheduled for release until April of 2017, her book The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince will tell the story of her time with Prince. From Amazon’s page, the description begins “At the one-year anniversary of his death, legendary musician Prince’s first wife shares a uniquely intimate, candid, and revelatory look inside the personal and professional life of one of the world’s most beloved icons.” Click the book cover below to learn more and pre-order your copy (all book sales through this Amazon link help support Fun With Vinyl).

    Mayte doesn’t have that bad of a voice. Why haven’t her records done better?
