Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions pulls back the paisley curtain to reveal the untold story of Prince’s rise from cult favorite to the biggest rock star on the planet His journey is meticulously documented through detailed accounts of his time secluded behind the doors of the recording studio as well as his days on tour With unprecedented access to the musi On April 21 2016 the world lost one of the most prolific hard working musicians that ever lived Prince Rogers Nelson was a bona fide legend his talent only eclipsed by the aura of mystery that surrounded him In the wake of his death many writers both professional and amateur have written books that attempt to unravel Prince s mystery while also honoring the legacy he left behind However few of these books have been met with the kind of anticipation and hype that Duane Tudahl s Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983 and 1984 has A labor of love over 20 years in the making Tudahl s meticulous day to day chronicle of Prince s creative output during his most commercially popular era is one of the most comprehensive works ever crafted about the Purple OneWhile there has been a lot written on the Purple Rain era because of its popularity the genius of this book lies in its attention to detail Simply put the work Tudahl has done on this book is astounding It is truly a mix of a recording log and a memoir Copious uotes from band members engineers and other insiders from the era really drive the book s momentum forward and help the reader feel as if heshe really is a fly on the wall in Prince s world Info from daily studio work orders including song titles engineers present and time booked is all included surrounded by a narrative relying on collaborators own words Anecdotes from Susan Rogers about Prince recording God in a dark studio by candlelight and David Z recalling a uip from Prince saying a take wasn t working because David s shirt was too loud make reading easy intimate and fun Although the author never interviewed Prince there are many uotes of his from other sources that are often revealing and almost always profound Prince s uotes are all bolded within the text to give them special importance which is a nice stylistic touch Sex is always the most interesting thing to write about It s the one subject people can t talk about without losing their cool Have you ever noticed people can talk about Iran they can talk about JFK being shot but as soon as you bring up their sex life they start stuttering My family my father and my mother life and death are far personal to me than sex Prince p 398In a sense Tudahl has taken the aesthetics of documentary filmmaking a medium with which he is very familiar and applied them to the written word The way the book is constructed gives a very visual dimension to the text like a documentary playing in one s mind as one reads If as the author suggests in the Preface you play the songs in the background as they appear in the text the reading experience becomes even immersive and intimate It s important to note here that the primary audience for this book is hardcore Prince fans who than likely would have access to unreleased recordings although in no way does the book condone or endorse bootlegsThis book ranks right up there with the likes of Per Nilsen s DanceMusicSexRomance and Uptown Magazine s The Vault as indispensable pieces of the literary Prince canon The fact that the one and only uestlove a self professed Prince scholar contributed the Foreword tells you how important and vital this book the first volume in a potential Studio Sessions series is Books like these help keep Prince s legacy alive and remind us what a special artist he was Tudahl should be applauded for his exhaustive effortPrince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983 and 1984 is out November 15 from Rowman Littlefield Publishers Hardcover 514 pages
