That's too bad, that's an incredible song. That electric guitar just burns.

I think my favorite discovery from "Donuts" is Motherlode's "When I Die." I also really like "All I Do is Think of You"

Yeah, Motherlode and Dionne Warwick were my favourites from that poll you made a few months back. One day, I will sit down and listen to every sampled song on Donuts.

people online have made compilations, but unfortunately all the ones I've found are just terrible bit rate-wise. someday i might get around to making my own to put online. i already have a pretty good amount of songs from it.

this one's great too:

Oh man, I've been meaning to find that tune for a while! Just a brilliant way to finish off the album.

this is definitely not going to be up for more than a few hours, so watch it while you can

self explanatory; it's the live performance of purple rain that prince used to make the studio cut. phenomenal

I watched it on facebook when you shared it, Rashed. Incredible to actually see most of the studio version in front of your eyes.

That new Bobby Womack song is amazing. He's going all Nico Jaar on us.

Summertime is one of my favorite standards, and I never knew Al Green did a version.

Never liked Janis' screechiness on Summertime.

From what I've heard, Sam Cooke did the best version. Those background singers are just... :eek:
