“Parade” was Prince’s 1986 follow-up to “Around the World in a Day” and the soundtrack to his second film “Under the Cherry Moon”. The album revealed a complex new jazz influenced sound, featuring lush orchestral arrangements (from Clare Fischer) and a very European flavour.
“Parade” featured the number one single, "Kiss" – along with key tracks; “Girls and Boys”, “Anotherlover”, and “Sometimes it Snows in April”. It was also the final album that Prince released with the Revolution.
In this edition of “25” we hear from Prince keyboard player Matt Fink (aka “Doctor Fink”), Brent Fischer son of arranger Clare Fischer, S-Endz (from “Swami”), UK broadcaster Bobby Friction, Brett Anderson (from Suede), Doctor Simon Barber from Birmingham City University… and massive Prince fan Bill Oddie.
