Journal of Popular Music Studies

Massive gratitude to the Journal of Popular Music Studies, Volume 34, Issue 2, p. 5–27, for highlighting last year’s Prince #1plus1plus1is3 Virtual Symposium in their field notes section of their June 2022 edition, released just in time to celebrate Prince’s upcoming birthday.

Three transcripts are featured, representing each album celebrated during the event: Controversy (1981), Diamonds & Pearls (1991), and The Rainbow Children (2001).

It was extremely difficult to whittle down twenty stellar presentations to just three. My heartfelt thanks & gratitude also extends to ALL of the presenters from #1plus1plus1is3!

To accompany the transcripts, you can (re)watch the video archives of each transcript:
