If you don't know who most of them are you won't be trading for this funky show. Its an okay taping, but the shows just pulsates with sex and beats and funk. Let's your freak flag fly its the bomb!

BIG SCREEN (2)  March 29, 2004 (2).  Los Angeles, California.  Super soundboard show along with fantastic bonus tracks.   Killer.

SUPERBOWL 2007. When he's on, he's on. This contains the complete press conference performance as well as the halftime gig. Covering Dylan & the Foo Fighters along with his some of his back catalog, the man can ignite!

BLACK EYE DAY (5) October 10 & 11, 2008. Simply amazing. I'll type it again, simply amazing. No it's not the recording which is just okay it's the whole damn thing. You get the show, the after show, a Dave Chappelle routine, you get a mess of covers. It's awesome.

MAY 14, 2011 (2) Los Angeles, California.  Enjoyable show with the New Power Generation, but doesn't quite have the transendent energy of the rest of the best of the shows listed.   Great stagecraft + musicianship, plenty of highlights but not essential

DECEMBER 29, 2013 (2)  Uncasville, Connecticut.   Audience taping.  I was determined to only grab soundboard recordings for Prince, but I was at this show and hence on the list.   Not a bad recording - certainly captured a great show. 

MARCH 15, 2015 (2) Louisville, Kentucky. Kick ass soundboard. Love it - this is funk.

APRIL 8, 2015 (2) Detroit, Michigan. If you said to me that this is greatest live performance you ever heard, I couldn't argue. This sound boarder is simply a stunner. Mind blowing. Funky. If you like listening to music, you will like this.

BALTIMORE 2015. May 10, 2015. Baltimore, Maryland. His purpleness shows up amidst the turmoil in Baltimore. Killer fuckin' performance. Soundboard.

TRANSFORMATION. (2) April 14, 2016. So good, I don't need to pile out the tributes. This was a great show, wish I was there.
