Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 206/500!
Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering & Pressed at RTI on 180g Vinyl!
The third studio album by the iconic pop star was originally released in 1980
and was produced, arranged and composed primarily by the artist himself. By the
cover and the title, one could surmise the musical content would be primarily
sexual in nature. The critically acclaimed album debuted at number 63 on the
U.S. Billboard 200 chart.
"A mix of slinky funk, synth-driven rock, jittery pop and sexual innuendo, Dirty Mind hinted where Prince was headed. It includes the world's merriest done-me-wrong song, "When You Were Mine," and the incest ditty "Sister." "I wasn't being deliberately provocative," Prince said. "I was being deliberately me." - www.rollingstone.com
Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the
'80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era,
capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he
release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums
and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of songs that
still lie unreleased in his vaults. With each album he released, Prince showed
remarkable stylistic growth and musical diversity, constantly experimenting with
different sounds, textures, and genres. Occasionally, his music can be
maddeningly inconsistent because of this eclecticism, but his experiments
frequently succeed; no other contemporary artist can blend so many diverse
styles into a cohesive whole.
