and to continue to poke the bear..

The Coral are well into their 30 early 40s and have consistently released  great albums.

Yes well when you are handing out free CDs with newspapers and tickets they tend to “sell” if you can call it that….

Song is horrible. It has 59k views. I can link to videos of dogs taking a crap with more views.

Surely as the forum leading expert on Prince you would have known,

a) This that PlectrumElectrum was a proper retail release on CD, Digital and Vinyl
b) It came out on the same day as Art Official Age which also charted

I chose the YouTube link because it easier then to link to Spotify, YouTube isn't the primary chose for streaming album, etc so I would say 50K streams is very reasonable.  Same track on Spotify is 503K

moving on to Art Official Age I'll say this one is equivalent to Lovesexy and has a certified banger on it in "Breakfast Can Wait" with 5 Million Spotify streams and 500K  YouTube streams.

.

What is notable about Prince is he cratered. There isn’t even one song that can sit on his greatest hits from his last 10 years.
and for the record PlectrumElectrum is on par with Dirty Mind
and here the banger from the album recorded with Lizzo in 2014
BOYTROUBLE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCg5FdmyznA
I'm trying here, not sure I'm going to rate boytrouble is a banger on par with his 80s output?
cool that lizzo was on it in 2014

interesting that it was released in 2014, as it has a very 80s feel

interesting foot note (to me as this is new)

 3RDEYEGIRL, is an American funk rock band and was Prince's backing band from his 2014 return to Warner Music until his death in 2016. It was a trio consisting of the American drummer Hannah Welton, Canadian guitarist Donna Grantis and Danish bassist Ida Kristine Nielsen.[2][3] Together with Prince, they released the LP Plectrumelectrum on September 30, 2014.


After Prince's death in 2016, Hannah and Joshua started their own Christian ministry in 2018.

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard - Backhand Deals

Welsh music scene is really something these days!  This one is highly recommended for fans of Sloan/Jellyfish/Raspberries/Supergrass.

Definitely landing on my list of favorite 2022 releases...
