R.I.P. Denise Matthews, aka Vanity

The titular 1982 sole LP from Vanity 6 is an absolute classic of it’s era. Written and produced by Prince, who also released his double LP 1999 the same year and was on an unparalleled hot streak creatively speaking, the album is filled with party funk every bit worthy of his genius. Seriously, there is not a bum cut on the record, and most of them have made their way into DJ sets of mine over the years.

Check out the below posted performance, LP, and this article on Prince’s tribute to Vanity at a show last night, which also has the only clip I could find of the unreleased Vanity 6 master jam, Vibrator, featuring Prince in a comedic sketch, in line with his vocal appearance on If A Girl Answers (Don’t Hang Up) from the Vanity LP.
