As the world continues to grieve for the late pop icon Prince, a SoundCloud user has paid their own homage by posting a majestic bootleg of the Purple One's unreleased material. Like his official recordings, this two-and-a-half-hour mix jumps from trippy funk, to tender ballads, to knee-buckling guitar work, charting the full gamut of the dancefloor icon's eclectic range.
Not much is known about where the mixes came from; it was uploaded by an anonymous SoundCloud user yesterday who hasn't posted anything else. In the description the user says the material is a distillation of "a decent number of O(+> bootlegs and demos" amassed over the years. They go on to say: "It was difficult to break it down, but eventually, I got around to making a best of the 87 discs of unreleased O(+> material."
In the comments on the post, another user posted a tracklist for the mix, which includes "Turn It Up," "Neon Telephone," and "Do Yourself a Favour"—a remake of "If You See Me" by 94 East, the band that Prince was a member of in the 70s.
If by the time you read this the internet police have take down the mix, you can still listen to a recording of Prince's last ever performance at the Fox Theater in Atlanta a few days before his death.
Listen to the mix, titled "P.R.N.1999," here.
