The entire world took a collective gasp last week as we all heard the sad and tragic news that one of the most talented, influential and beloved artists of our time was gone. So many tributes and remembrances poured out over the airwaves and across social media. So much has been said that there really isn’t anything we can add that you haven’t heard already. Instead What’s In-Store Music would like to share Farrelltron Graphics’ rare video clip of the very first performance ever of “Purple Rain” recorded at First Avenue in Minneapolis in 1983. The video is complete with commentary and was the bare bones for the song used on the album and in the movie. Click here to watch.
Enjoy, Scott & Bob
