Prince & The New Power Generation Never-Before-Released Live Recording Released
A never-before-released live recording by Prince & The New Power Generation, recorded at Glam Slam Nightclub on 11 January 1992, has been made available for streaming.
Live At Glam Slam is taken from the expanded reissue of Prince & The New Power Generation’s multi-platinum album Diamonds And Pearls, which is out 27 October and available for pre-order now.
Live At Glam Slam provides fans with the opportunity to experience Prince and the NPG at the peak of their powers. Arranged to preview the Diamonds And Pearls Tour, this intimate 11 January performance finds Prince & The New Power Generation tearing through songs from the recently released Diamonds And Pearls album at breakneck pace.
This was a night of firsts. Not only was it the very first time that Prince & The New Power Generation would publicly perform the full Diamonds And Pearls Tour show (and the only time they would perform it in the US), but at least five new songs were unveiled, including Thunder, Insatiable, and Willing And Able. The Glam Slam show also marked the debut live appearance of dancer (and Prince’s future wife) Mayte, and of new five-piece horn section, the NPG Hornz, with the band.
Faced with a ticking clock (local ordinance forbade public dancing after 1AM) and an ecstatic audience, Prince and his band were ultimately forced to finish the concert when Minneapolis police entered the venue during the frenetic final moments of Gett Off (Houstyle).
The immersive audio release of Live At Glam Slam follows the release of Diamonds And Pearls in Dolby ATMOS and Sony 360 Reality Audio Formats, the first time a Prince album has been released in immersive audio. Mixed from the original multi-track album masters by GRAMMY-nominated, longtime Prince audio engineer, Chris James, the new Dolby ATMOS and Sony 360 RA mixes give fans the opportunity to hear Diamonds And Pearls as they’ve never heard it before.
Diamonds And Pearls Dolby ATMOS, Sony 360 Reality Audio, and newly Remastered Stereo audio formats can be streamed now HERE.
