I spied a PURPLE RAIN album at Unique Finds a few weeks back (have mine!) … This song is not from PURPLE RAIN – but from the Beatles, written by George Harrison. Prince, in the famous video clip below, funks it up beautifully. From where did his genius flow? How do we understand a Prince? …

… Smallest guy in the room – most wonderful wunderkind! High-heeled, halter-topped, elegant, like Louis the Sun King – or Little Richard. Prancing, stomping, twirling – caressing his gal singers and piano on stage – his piano more lovingly, I do believe!

In the 1980s a gal pal invited me to a Prince concert. He plans to take a shower on stage!, she gushed. But beneath the Prince youthful silliness – and overt sexiness – was a serious student of ROCK AND FUNK AND R AND B and JAZZ AND BLUES. As the gifted one grew older his sexiness became more subdued: short hair, a body-skimming suit with few flourishes – maybe a lovely collar or brooch. Beautiful to me, now middle-aged, too, and looking for loveliness in my men that came from their confidence, experience, worldliness …

Here’s the mature Prince … Here is CREAM and more!

My first Prince lp? CONTROVERSY in audio cassette form. I liked the political, ballsy songs! Prince was pushing boundaries – sexual, political – in his music. I went around the UMass Amherst campus, a student wanting to sing her song, chanting to me, myself, my soul: “I WISH WE ALL WERE NUDE! I WISH THERE WERE NO BLACK AND WHITE! I WISH THERE WERE NO RULES!”

I took Prince’s musical exhortations to heart! And “it’s made all the difference”!

Buy your Ma some Prince this Mother’s Day!!!! She deserves him!

Oops! Forgot to add vintage vinyl …

… to the list of cool Mother’s Day gifts at Unique Finds antiques and vintage gift shop, 1329 Main St., Worcester. Soap, soap dishes, hand lotion, etc – the usual boring crap given to mom. Why not an electric guitar? Unique Finds has several – one in red. If I were a mom, this is the gift I’d want my family to plunk into my lap this Sunday. Why turn mothers and older women into cliches? (P.S. This Chicago album, one of my faves, is mine! Along with the beautiful Billie Holiday print I’ll hang tonight!)   – R.T.
