Digging in the Vaults: The Black Album (25th Anniversary Show)

Hello fellow Brandosoul listeners and fans,

It has been awhile since we dropped a podcast, so we have decided to reach into the vaults and give you an oldie, but goodie! 1987’s The Black Album is one of the most controversial project Prince was ever associated with and it remains one of the most well-known bootlegged albums. Its stories and myth often clash with the music, but it is such an interesting album and era. Here I was joined with my co-host Jesse Jenkins and we are offering an in-depth album critique, along with new insights about this remarkable era and album.

In this episode, we also get into:
– Prince’s “Welcome 2 Chicago” shows
– Andy Allo
– Larry Graham
– Prince’s new cut, “Rock ‘N Roll Affair”¬†

* This episode was recorded September 2012
