The Prince estate is getting ready to release a remastered “Sign O’ The Times” and massive Super Deluxe edition with 63 previously unheard tracks on September 25th. Well, they’ve just shared another one of those unheard tracks with fans.
The latest is the tune “I Need A Man,” which was originally recorded for Prince's protégé act, The Hookers (an early version of Vanity 6), and was one of four songs Prince had offered to Bonnie Raitt after seeing her in concert, although she wound up passing on it.
Prince’s version was recorded on January 22nd, 1987 at the Washington Avenue Warehouse.
