74 episodes

Josh and Christy explore the highs and the lows - the mountains and the sea, if you will - of every Prince album. Each album will get two or more episodes, as needed. The first will focus on the album tracks with a brief discussion of each song and our selections for the mountain, the sea, and the time capsule - the song that most represents the era of recording. The second and other subsequent episodes will feature information about and commentary on ancillary materials: B sides, music videos, fashion, concert videos, proteges, interesting stories and personal anecdotes from our hosts.

    All Aboard the Blue Train - Sheila E (1987)

    Sheila E was busy with her own album that released in 1987 - her third in the 80’s on Paisley Park Records - and it is worth a listen in the lead up to SOTTSD.

Bravo!

Terrific podcast! I love the deep dive into all things Prince album related. Done with love and humor and a great deal of knowledge. Entertaining while giving me my much needed Prince geek feels. Bravo to you both.

I love this podcast!! Updated

Updated: I’ve been listening for a while now and still love it. Your format has held up beautifully, it’s funny, in-depth, passionate and respectful. I’ve learned so much and I love the fact you are taking time to go over what won’t be in the Sign of the Times super deluxe, I feel it’s important to include these works to get a complete picture of Prince’s work during this time. Thanks!!

Old review: I just found you and I fell in love! Very detailed and I love you can disagree with each other so respectfully. As I find I can disagree respectfully. You both open up his music for me. Thank you and keep up the fantastic work you’re doing.
