Originally conceived as a double album, Parade has the sprawling feel of a double record, even if it clocks in around 45 minutes

Kicking the Canon album selection, 1986. Beginning with its titular event and ending with a funeral, Prince’s Parade is obsessed with love, sex and death. If that weren’t enough baggage, Parade also serves as the soundtrack to the 1986 film Under the Cherry Moon. Prince’s Paris-set follow-up to Purple Rain tells the life and death story of Prince’s gigolo character, Christopher Tracy, who gets name-checked in Parade’s opening tune, Christopher Tracy’s Parade

Parade was a Top Five album. Given how fresh it still sounds, you might imagine that it would have inspired other artists to try what Prince called his "new funk," but you'd be wrong. The direction R&B took in the wake of Parade had a lot more to do with Prince's former associates Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, whose production work for Janet Jackson, the Human League and Force . s was pointing toward New Jack Swing. Still, the slow, elegiac "Sometimes It Snows in April" stayed in Prince's live repertoire right up to his final show. And the core of the album is its dance tracks, bracingly crisp and airy, with those offhanded register-vaulting vocals and that peculiar rhythmic lurch no other artist could duplicate. With "Kiss" as its key and signpost, Parade makes the case that the secret engine of Prince's funk was what it left out. Back to home.

Prince And The Revolution - AM-TV TV broadcast (08/13). Raspberry Beret - 2:33 (live). NOTE: It is possible that this version, from the 08/12 Wembley show, is the same as the Music Box broadcast below, but having lost my copy of Music Box, I can't be sure. IIRC the Music Box broadcast was added as a bonus on a bootleg DVD of the Detroit Parade concert so maybe someone can find it there for me. More info needed.
