GAR! 172: The Prince Chronology, Part 1

Download the MP3 here!

This week’s episode of The GAR! Podcast presents a track-by-track album-by-album discussion of Prince’s career from his first album For You through to Controversy, including the self-titled Prince and Dirty Mind, as well as the debut album by The Time and the only album release from Vanity 6. We also talk about the early days of The Revolution, the tours, album art, Billboard charts, covers, radio airplay, record store memories, analog television, Andre Cymone, Ready for the World, Taylor Swift, hackers, and our new Twitter feed.

And since it’s about Prince, there’s a mature content warning on this episode, because yeah, we’re going to talk a lot about songs he wrote about vaginas. It is Prince after all.

Here’s the albums we reviewed. If you use our Amazon links, we get a small commission.

Prince, For You.

Prince, Prince.

Prince, Dirty Mind.

Prince, Controversy, pictured above.

The Time, The Time.

Vanity 6, Vanity 6. Sadly, not officially available, and ridiculously expensive, but still fun if you can find a copy.

And here’s the ad from the Courier-Post for Prince’s show at Emerald City in 1980. We mention this on the show.

The GAR! Podcast is the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world, coming to you from the suburbs of New Jersey and the sunny lakes of Florida via Skype.
