The Lost Vanity Rehearsal Tapes Are Still Out There

A hat tip to the ace ladies and gents over at The Fader, whose browsing of the Web turned up this archive of gems from one Prince Rogers Nelson, class of 1976, Minneapolis Central High School. While this grainy rehearsal footage from 1984 looks its age, it’s still fascinating if only for the opportunity to watch Prince at work during the apex of his creative powers.
