The All Stars (1985) The Prince Mix NL 12″

Very Brief:
Remember this? Yeah, I don’t feel any better about this record than I did about that one. What can I say about “The Prince Mix” that hasn’t already been said? I could say it is awesome, the best medley of Prince songs I have ever heard in my life! That’s never been said about this record because it isn’t true, that’s total bullshit on my part. Who remembers those, I don’t remember the label that did’em, K-Tel, Ronco, Pickwick… those albums that had all the latest hit songs on them but, in little tiny print it would say “as performed by the Blah Blah Singers” or some such… Yeah, put this record in that category, maybe not even as good as those were. There is absolutely no Prince involvement here, this is a medley of his songs poorly performed by The All Stars. If these are All Stars, I’d hate to hear the guys still sitting on the bench, would probably sound like the caterwauling of two tomcats fighting over a queen in heat! On second thought, that would probably be less of a train wreck than this record is. The record is single sided, my recommendation is to listen to the b-side! Enjoy!

    That was Pickwick’s claim to fame! Unless it was unreleased Bee Gees,reissues by any of Capitol or RCA acts or 50’s original collections that is.

    I had to download it to see if it lived up to your rave review. Yup, pretty horrendous. I put it in the category of wedding band or karaoke. At least those two options would be accompanied by alcohol.

    On a positive note, hearing the melody of Belle of St. Mark has made me pull out some Sheila E. for this morning.

    Happy Holidays, Richie!

    I really wanted to give this a chance. Perhaps it may have had some strange and unique quality to it, like a great 80’s cover band might be able to achieve in their own way.
    Sadly.. or in a delightfully humorous way I’m not sorry I gave this a listen. The lead singer set a visual impression in my mind of a Rastafarian looking vagabond with heavy Jamaican accent, who only “Vonts do see me lappink in da burple rain”
    only to ride off into the sunset on that cheap knock off version of Prince’s motorbike.
    Simulated sex samples were a treat, and although by the time I got to Erotic City I was nearly pouring coffee over my own head, it was a journey well worth taking – Thank You!
