Prince, Live at First Avenue, in 1983

Yes, all these videos of from the night Prince and the Revolution first played the song "Purple Rain," and recorded all the basic tracks for the Purple Rain LP. But the videos I'm featuring are earlier songs that he just kills.

Watch while you can—Prince bootleg vids are an endangered species on the internet and will likely be taken down soon.
