I'd decided I didn't care for his music long before I saw him perform so his somewhat flamboyant stage persona didn't enter it at all. Much of what got radio play was borderline dance material and there was just so much hype surrounding "Purple Rain" - both the movie and album - that it became an instant turn off. I just double-checked my library and do own a copy of his "Hits Volume 1" but I honestly can't say which songs I like but know it's only a couple.I'm a bit surprised as I take you for somewhat of a purist, which is exactly what Price represented. Flamboyant for sure, which can be off putting to some, but only when on stage. He seemed sort of like Muhammad Ali to me in that sense.
