Cover Come Artists name: Prince and The New Power Generation
Album title: Come
Release date: August 16, 1994
No. of tracks: 10
Top chart position: 2


Album notes:

    This album is so refreshing and good!. It contains some of the most funky and rhythmically tight tracks Prince has ever laid down. The lyrics are very hard and full of sex to an extent not heard since "Controversy", no symbolism, no fuzz, just "Can I f*** you baby". Plain and simple.
    Unfortunately the quality of the music on this album were put in the background by all the talk of his problems with Warner Bros. who had just started, and the fact that he changed his name to soon after the release. To me nothing of this can overshadow the quality and freshness of this album that is one of Prince's best.
    "This is the dawning of a new spiritual revolution".

Band notes:

    THe New Power Generation has changed a little, as always, to make the following line-up for the "Come"-album:
    Prince : Whatever.
    Mayte : Background vocals.
    Mr. Hayes : Keyboards.
    Tommy Barbarella : Keyboards.
    Sonny T. : Bass & backing vocals.
    Michael Bland : Drums.
    NPG Hornz : Mike Nelson, Kathy and Dave Jensen, Brian Gallagher and Steve Strand.
    Additional stuff by : Eric Leeds, Kathleen Bradford and Ricky Peterson.

Chart notes:

    This album did better on the charts than one would have thought with the controversial lyrics and the fuzz about Warner Bros. and the name-change. But the music won over the controversy, which is good. "Come" reached no.15 on the Pop-chart and no.2 on the R&B-chart giving him the best placement since "Diamonds & Pearls".
    Two singles were released with this album. They did not have the success that the album did but one of them did reach the top 10.
    "Letitgo" reached no.31 on the Pop-chart and no.10 on the R&B-chart. "Space" peaked at no.71 on the R&B-chart but didn't make it to the Pop-chart, it was actually only on the charts four weeks in all.
