she mentions a line from Our Destiny/RD Garden about Gene Harlowe - isn't that line actually in Come Electra Tuedsay????? shows that even her memory isn't exactly perfecto!

Where did she mention this?

It seems (and I could be wrong...) that you wanted to rush to say 'shows that even her memory isn't exactly perfecto'

When all U had to do was read/quote/cut n paste, the part you are finding fault with ...

Maybe your memory isn't exactly perfecto? lol or maybe you are talking about another interview where she mentions a line from Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden about Gene Harlowe?

On the new songs — starting with “Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden,” which the Revolution is performing on its current tour

They were two different songs at first. Prince sang “Our Destiny,” then he had Coleman record it on lead vocals and then Jill Jones do it. Coleman said Prince was caught up about a line about Rita Hayworth that didn’t please him.

To Coleman, “Roadhouse Garden” was “such a good time. It reminds me of a sunny day in Minneapolis and things were good. We were in a good mood. Prince was really happy. It felt like a true story.”

I'm confused by the part where she says Prince told her to sing like Bette Davis on We Can F''k. She has previously stated that Prince requested her to sing like Davis when they recorded All My Dreams. Maybe she got some songs mixed up? Wouldn't surprise me. She's trying to remember stuff that took place 30+ years ago.

The wooh is on the one!

Again, I don't see where she is mixing anything up. It was Dandroppedadime, who mixed things up and put it on Lisa.

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world

I don't think Rev members have anything to do with this release.

.

They were interviewed for the liner notes, I think.
