SPIN'S TRIBUTE TO PRINCE'S PURPLE RAIN
I honestly haven't spent much time reading Spin in the last few years, but the new issue has a great feature on Prince's Purple Rain that I had to check out. It's an oral history of the album and film with almost all of the players (except, of course, for Prince himself). Definitely worth reading, and the magazine also allows you to download a track by track tribute to the album by the likes of The Riverboat Gamblers, The Twilight Singers and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
