referencing Parade, CD, Album, 925 395-2. Love him or hate him but Prince is a respectable figure in the music world for there is rarely such a genius daring to experiment with rock, funk disco and the avant-garde - the latter of which is most evident here on 'Parade'. Bizarre but fascinating sound experiment, a sonic mess as sexy as it is actually quite spooky.
Prince began working on the album in mid-April 1985, shortly before the release of the previous album, Around The World In A Day, and began by recording the drum track in sequence of Wendy's Parade (late renamed Christopher Tracy's Parade), New Position, I Wonder U and Under The Cherry Moon, all in one take. instrumentation on the final release. A first configuration of the album was compiled on 1 May 1985 (detailed below), but several changes, including the removal of three tracks and the recording of six additional tracks, took place between then and the final release. The album produced four d singles, Kiss, Mountains, Girls & Boys (in Europe only), and ead.
Parade is Prince’s eighth studio album, the fourth and final to feature his backing band The Revolution; in addition to being the soundtrack album to the 1986 film Under the Cherry Moon. It was released on March 31st, 1986 by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. This album marked further diversification by Prince, with additional orchestrations and a more european feel
Its soundtrack album, Parade, on the other hand, is breathtaking. Raw, spare, and unflaggingly eccentric, it sounds radically unlike Purple Rain, Around the World and everything else released in 1986, but it's baited with that year's most brilliant single, "Kiss"-a song that taught its listeners how to hear the rest of the album. Kiss" is a slash in the air surrounded by negative space. The rest of Parade makes similarly ingenious use of the zero mark on the mixing desk's faders. Prince asked jazz arranger Clare Fischer to score and record orchestrations for every song on the album except "Kiss," then (mostly) peeled them right back off. Even so, the orchestra is fully present and flickering between dissonance and consonance for the opening track, "Christopher Tracy's Parade"-although they've still got Prince's mammoth, processed drum sound keeping them in shadow.
