Boomkat Product Review:
This may seem like a bit of a stretch but for our money this is one of the greatest pop singles of all time, presented here in a newly cut pressing from Warners featuring an extended version on the A-Side and Shockadelica (another Camille cut) on the flip.
It's hard to imagine but this was Prince's attempt at getting back in favour with black radio; instead the subversive conceit, Camille's sped up vocals and explicit lyrics went down like a lead balloon. Everything about this track is pure nexx-level genius, from the unhinged opening to some of the most inventive vocal arrangements ever captured on tape, the clipped reverb on those LM-1 snares, reverse-strings - everything about it is just beyond comprehension.
For us - this was Prince at the very very top of his game and a record that keeps on giving up new tricks 30 years on.
