94 East featuring Prince

94east_prince

Prince‘s earliest recordings with 94 East – a Minneapolis-based group formed by Brooklyn musician Pepe Willie – are being released by Charly Records across a number of formats.

These recordings date from 1975-1979 and although Prince was there primarily to play guitar (with Pepe) he would also contribute bass, synths and organ where needed. He was only 16 when the first recordings took place.

This release contains the early recordings that Pepe took to New York in April 1976 securing the band a one-off single deal with Polydor (ultimately cancelled) as well as some further tracks recorded later, including the rehearsal / practise session version of Dance To The Music Of The World, Lovin’ Cup and Just Another Sucker (co-written by Prince). In addition to guitar, Prince played drums and keyboard on all three of those tracks with his childhood friend André Cymone (who was in Grand Central, the band Prince formed while still at school) on bass.

A six-track version of 94 East has being issued on 180g heavyweight purple vinyl, while a expanded 13-track version is issued on CD (in gatefold wallet with inner sleeves and booklet). A three-LP deluxe version comes in a lift-off lid box and is pressed on black vinyl. This boasts 17 tracks including some alternates and instrumentals. Charly are also releasing Just Another Sucker as a limited edition 12-inch single b/w One Man Jam.

Both vinyl versions of the album come with digital download codes and all editions have excellent historical notes from Roger Murdoch.

94 East is out now.
