Prince / Lotusflow3r 2LP vinyl repress


Prince‘s Lotusflow3r album from 2009 is being reissued on vinyl as a double album with the welcome bonus of the inclusion of two CDs…

This reissue from Because Music wisely excludes Bria Valente’s Elixer album, which was originally part of the three-CD set and focuses on the two Prince albums: Lotusflow3r and MPL Sound. The former was generally more warmly received, and certainly warrants re-examination seven years on. There’s some very good work on here, including jazzy opener, …From The Lotus, the poppy Crimson and Clover (which pinches the chorus from Wild Thing), the tight James Brown funk of Feel Good, Feel Better, Feel Wonderful and the obligatory Prince Hidden Gem, the bluesy, soulful Colonized Mind.

This reissue packages both vinyl albums in a gatefold sleeve and comes with CDs of Lotusflow3r and MPL Sound. For the price it’s a bargain and will hopefully encourage curious fans, who may have been put off by ‘triple-album syndrome’, to explore Prince’s work in 2009.

Lotusflow3r is reissued as a 2LP+2CD package on 1 July.
