David Bowie and now Prince. Sad year for music giants. We livicate this Ark-Ive to the great pop singer in his 80’s heyday.

Until I got into Reggae this was my automatic soul purchase a youth in frozen Montana:

  2. Little Red Corvette
  3. I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man
  4. Kiss
  5. Sign o’ the Times.

On the Ark-Ive below we hear When Doves Cry. Bass added for the Reggae which wasn’t there on the original.
