Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Music from Graffiti Bridge
Following the phenomenal success of Purple Rain would have intimidated most artists, but then Prince is not like most artists. He took on writing and directing chores for the sequel to that film, Graffiti Bridge, as well as reprising his onscreen role as performer The Kid. While the film was not a box office smash, that didn't stop the soundtrack from soaring into the Top 10. Double-album length at 17 songs, MUSIC FROM GRAFFITI BRIDGE features guest appearances from the likes of The Time, Tevin Campbell, George Clinton and Mavis Staples, but as songwriter, producer and instrumentalist, Prince's presence is felt on every track. Beyond the singles “Round And Round,” “New Power Generation” and hit “Thieves In The Temple,” much of this music is based on older material from The Purple One's vaults, and it's a testament to his genius that such diverse pieces have been shaped into a compelling whole. Even if GRAFFITI BRIDGE isn't in their Netflix queue, any rock or R&B fan will find much to love in its soundtrack.
