Don't be expecting face-melting guitar solos from Piano And A Microphone 1983. This recording is really going to appeal to hard-core Prince fans who may weep at the pure sound of his voice, and the stripped-down piano noodling recorded at his home studio 35 years ago.Piano And A Microphone 1983 is just Prince playing 'Purple Rain' and several other tunes in one take onto cassette. This will really appeal to fans of Prince's jazzy side, and Warner Bros is releasing it on CD, vinyl and digital formats on Friday, September 21st.
Ironically, Piano And A Microphone as the name of the solo tourPrince was on, when,on April 16th, 2016 he collapsed and died at the age of 57. It's been learned since that tragically, Prince died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl.
