[Update: I assume the copyright claim that pulled the video offline is an automated one, since this was clearly fair use. Shit.]

I didn’t realize Purple Rain was actually performed live and edited for inclusion in the album. You can see the full live version here, with notes about what was changed. I’m not a huge Prince fan, but this is interesting.

Mirrored from Harry Connolly. You can comment here but not there.

I wonder if it was an automated take down. It's clearly fair use.

Prince is notoriously copyright-notice-happy. I recall him taking down a recording of him covering Radiohead's Creep and Radiohead telling him to put it back up.
