Those are proper Prince projects, I assumed the OP had already listened to all of those.


It's hard to tell. The OP only mentioned previously hearing The Time and Sheila E.

Could be that the OP doesn't get the difference between "side projects" and "colleagues"?

Naaaw no no no!

Yea I should have clarified in the OP - I was aware of the Jill J album and the Madhouse side projects. I particularly dig the latter. I only just recently purchased the Family and absolutely LOVE that Album.

At the time of the post I was most curious about Andre and Jesse's solo work as well S W&L

Thanks for everyone's feedback! I have been pretty immersed in Jesse's stuff as I am a big guitar person. It's amazing to me that his solo work did not reach greater mainstream attention. I find it fantastic.

For me, while Andre is a quintessential figure in the Primce story, I just can't quite connect.... As a side note, I find his comments so odd that he missed out on Prince's work post-1981, when he was obviously a global megastar. Seems like sour grapes on some level...

Jill Jones' Album (released in 1987) would've done MUCH BETTER if released in 1984 (during the Purple Rain hype) or 1985 even!!! Still, it is a GEM in the Paisley Park archives, as is Mazarati's 1st Album, Madhouse 8, Madhouse 16 & The Family!!!!

cool

Those R all 'in the camp' Prince connect albums. the OP is talking about stuff the musicians/artists did after Prince/outside of Prince

The OP is asking for work they all did 'outside' of Prince

Maybe the OP has heard the 'non Prince' work by the Time & Sheila E

Both Madhouse albums, The Family & Jill Jones are MUST HAVES!! music

Those are not 'solo' albums / outside of Prince though

Madhouse does't have any

the Family ie FDeluxe has a few great ones, and St Paul has some solo albums, I believe Eric Leeds has 1 or 2 Suzanna Melvoin & Jellybean have written some great songs for others.

Jill Jones has albums done after leaving the Prince camp

Everyone has different taste but If you are adventurous with your music, I think you should try Vanity's Wild Animal and Skin on Skin. I love both albums. They have some really good songs in my opinion, and although I personally thought her breathy vocals were amusing - on the Vanity Six album, her vocals were much improved.
