(Unreleased album)
 
Unreleased (no cover)  

The Undertaker is a video of a studio jam of the so called 'power trio' of Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png) (vocals and guitar), Michael B. (drums) and Sonny T. (bass).

Footage for the video was filmed on 14 June 1993 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The original recording was also planned as a tentative album release, that was scrapped. A vague storyline (with Vanessa Marcil snooping around in Paisley Park Studios) was incorporated, resulting in the home video.

It was released on VHS in the UK and the rest of Europe and Laser Video format in Japan on the same day as The Sacrifice Of Victor home video.

The home video release was credited to Prince (instead of SymbolSmallerBlue.png) which in 1995 Prince went by and the album was going to be credited to.

Additional Information

Promotion (at time of release) Quotation & triva

  • Poorgoo and The Undertaker from this video were released as audio files by the NPG Music Club.
  • Another film about which little is known was shot around the same time. Directed by Parris Patton, this mini-film starred Nona Gaye and Vanessa Marcil with scenes set in an underground club where Prince is the main attraction. The whole project was scrapped in favor of The Undertaker which stars Marcil only. It is not clear however if The Undertaker was a portion of this project, its continuation or a totally different one.
