(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,276.45 (includes buyer's premium)


Scarce group lot of three cassette tapes from Prince's father John L. Nelson. Albums include: Father's Song (1994, Vive Records); a master copy of an unreleased self-titled album from 1991, with inner sleeve dated "10-7-93"; and a 1988 recording of 'Everyday IsSunday-Rain or Shine.' All cassettes are included. In overall very good to fine condition, with a crack to back of Father's Song case and two holes to 'Everyday IsSunday' insert. Nelson was a Minneapolis jazz musician and songwriter who performed under the stage name Prince Rogers, the very name he would later give to his son. Nelson co-wrote some music released by Prince in the 1980s, including 'Father’s Song,' 'Purple Rain Cues,' 'Computer Blue,' 'Around the World in a Day,' and 'Under the Cherry Moon.' On his 2002 One Nite Alone… album, Prince dedicated the song 'A Case of U,' a Joni Mitchell cover, to his father who passed away the previous year. From the collection of Prince’s former assistant.
