Big thanks (as ever) to everyone to came down to our Prince night. Great to see some first-timers too. And of course special thanks to Lippy Kid for digging through his record collection to put together a superb selection of Prince and Prince-related music. Hearing the full Purple Rain album blasting out across the labour club was nothing short of a revelation.
Some comments from the night…
Purple Rain sounded great last night enjoyed it so much.
Purple Rain was a standout track as were Sign of the Times and Kiss
