Parade by Prince
Released: Mar 1986
Label: Warner Bros.
The Revolution were evolving into a true band with Parade. Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman's interest in Parisian chanson and U.K. jazz-pop pervades "I Wonder U," "Do U Lie?" and "Under the Cherry Moon." Then the group added R&B to the excellent singles "Kiss," "Girls & Boys," "Mountains" and "Anotherloverholenyohead." Some critics found Parade pretentious, but Prince's fanatics heard it as a beguiling and rewarding hybrid of pop-rock, jazz and funk. Unfortunately, this stylistic departure is an anomaly: Shortly after its release, Prince reasserted control by breaking up The Revolution.
