PRINCE DIRTY MIND ’40’ | VIRTUAL SHOWCASE
Dirty Mind, the third studio album by Prince, was released on October 8, 1980 as the follow-up to his self-titled second album, ‘Prince’, (1979); it was produced, arranged, and composed entirely by Prince in his home studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota during May to June of 1980. Dirty Mind has been considered by critics as Prince’s most creative and boldest album, setting the baseline for his artistic direction in the following years.
During the spring of 1980, Prince and his backing band members Dez Dickerson, André Cymone, drummer Bobby Z, and keyboardists Doctor Fink and Gayle Chapman spent nine weeks on the road opening for Rick James, a musical rival of Prince. Following the end of James’ tour, Prince returned to Minnesota and rented a house in Wayzata where he set up a 16-track studio. During the recording of the album, Doctor Fink‘s jam-out during a rehearsal provided the basis for the album’s title track.
The first single of Dirty Mind, “Uptown” reached number five on both the Billboard Hot Soul Singles and the Billboard National Disco Action Top 30 charts. The album earned widespread acclaim from music critics and crossover success; the album has been ranked by several publications as one of the greatest albums of all time.
