Prince's Vanity-Inspired '80s Gem "Wonderful Ass" Surfaces And It's Marvelous
Suppose we all should know too well by now that when it comes to Prince's music, the vault is beyond knee-deep. It's a got damn trove of funky excellence, existing in the nooks and crannies of the internet, found only by those with the monk-like patience and determination. And every one in a while, someone actually turns up with a clean-ish copy of some ungodly funk from The Purple One (see: "Thrill You Or Kill You.")
Today, someone dug deep into those internet coves and came out with something truly spectacular and particularly timely; his allegedly Vanity-inspired funk romp, "Wonderful Ass," presumably an ode to his late protege's...silhouette. According to the good folks at PrinceVault, the track was originally recorded in '83, then expanded upon by The Revolution's Wendy & Lisa in '86, which is the version we have for you today. It's a reminder of the bond they shared early on in their careers as we continue to commemorate the late Vanity, gone far too soon. Hear Prince's scandalously infectious '86 rarity, "Wonderful Ass," below and hold tight for the next relic of "genius-era" P to surface by way of the mighty mighty internets.
