Prince Estate Releasing Rare Videos on YouTube
Prince's estate and Sony Music are treating his fans with some rarely seen videos recently released from the archive.
The videos will be released in weekly batches by album spanning the 1995 - 2010 era. The first videos were released last Friday and featured songs from 1995's 'The Gold Experience' and 1996's 'Chaos and Disorder.'
According to the press release, "For Prince, 1995-2010 was an unprecedented period of sustained and prolific creativity. Releasing fresh recordings at a rapid-fire pace through a variety of distribution strategies including his own online NPG Music Club, Prince was making some of the most provocative, experimental and soulful music of his career. Freed from major label demands and expectations, Prince was able to write, record and release his own music on his own terms."
My favorite of the first 3 videos released is this rarely seen video that was included on a CD-ROM video game called 'Interactive' that Prince released in 1994. Below the video is the list of upcoming releases and dates.
