Prince (when he was named Prince) returns to WSVNRadio, with his 1980
release (and his third album of his early career), Dirty Mind. His
second album, his self-titled release was a year before, and while listening
to Dirty Mind, its a good continuation of his music, and from his
The title track has a late 1970s Disco atmosphere. "When You Were
Mine" would be the most remembered hit, as it received good radio airplay.
The next 3 songs could easily fit the self-titled release: "Do It All
Night," "Gotta Broken Heart Again," "Uptown."
"Uptown" is a longer song, and is more funky, which would lead
Prince's music into his future releases after 1980. "Head" is a great
funky groove song, easily fitting a future release, 1999. Likewise,
"Siter," and "PartuUp" are upbeat and funky, as this kind of
music would be heard in Prince's future releases.
Prince's Dirty Mind is funky, grooving, and far better than the
traditional Disco that would fade out as the 1980s decade began. Prince's
early years were the best, until he would start clashing with his record
company, and later suing websites for using his music, and changing his name
to s aymbol. Recently, he would change his name back to his original, yet
he still has his moments with the fans, the internet, and business affairs.
All in all, he is a gifted performer, and although he continues recording,
his earliest years were considered his best.
