PRINCE

COACHELLA (2 CD)

The unique open-air concert from Indio/CA 2008, and the most recent concert in Prince history. Includes a sublime 9'-rendition of the Radiohead cover "Creep" and a refreshingly new-sounding arrangement of "Little Red Corvette" (!), amongst many other highlights. Featuring special guest appearances by Sheila. E, Morris Day and Jerome Benton. The NPG is augmented by Ledisi and features the funky Grupo Fantasma hornz.
Bonus trax: "Turn Me Loose" (new song!) from the recent Jay Leno performance, plus many more purple jellies, focusing on recent live material (2006-2008) and guest performances with other artists. Altogether, this release covers the public post-London 2007 dates and brings you Prince's newest music available in one nice little set.
