    Prince's records are always the epitome of groove but even his demo recordings kick ass.

    Check this out.

    This demo was made in 1976 when Prince himself was just 16 years old. How many teenagers can you name that can record something like this all by themselves and play every frickin' instrument?

    And here's that same song ten years later at the Parade tour.

    Wow. That really underscores the point that good material and good musicianship are the most important parts of a recording.
