Fink's Comments (rates this release 4.75/5.0)
Sourced from Raiders Of The Lost Art’s ‘Glam Slam West’ 1994 release, this is another excellent re-working of a classic show and of an already excellent audience recording. The recording was already mightily impressive, however to their credit 4DaFunk have reduced the more audible crowd members, cleaned up the sound and corrected a number of small glitches from the original release.

A number of fades during the show have (all but one) been eliminated and the skip towards the end of the show has been removed extremely professionally. This was a fantastic choice of show to have done some work on as not only is Prince’s set one of the best 1994 shows, but both Mavis Staples & Stevie Wonder join the New Power Generation onstage. Stevie is up first and begins with a speech touching on musical inspiration and the effects various artists have had on both himself and Prince (he also appears to be one of the few people at the time who actually gets away with calling him Prince). Once Stevie is off the stage, Mavis Staples takes over vocals for ‘I’ll Take You There’. The remainder of the show is pretty standard fare for a 1994 show, but does include a great, very frantic almost country & western instrumental immediately proceeding ‘Get Wild’. As this is sourced from the original Raiders Of The Lost Art release, it also includes the bonus material which is also on there.

The first is the broadcast from the VH-1 Honors including the performance of both ‘Interactive’ (complete with “bitch” edited out) and ‘Endorphinmachine. The release closes out with a highlights package from the following night’s Glam Slam show and whilst the recording is slightly thinner than the 26th June recording, it is still an EX- recording with a vastly different set from the night before (the complete recording can be found on 4DaFunk’s ‘Acknowledge Me’).
