NPG Ahdio Show Chronology

NPG Ahdio Show # 2

NPG Ahdio Show # 3

NPG Ahdio Show # 4

NPG Ahdio Show # 3, the third edition of the NPG Ahdio Show, was released as an mp3 download concurrently with The Daisy Chain, Northside (both by the New Power Generation), Habibi, and The Work Part 1 (all mp3 audio files), as NPG Music Club Edition # 3.

No official artwork is available for this (or any) show.

This edition contains two previously-unreleased tracks, Murph Drag, by The Time, which is not available elsewhere, and Sex Me Sex Me Not, which was available as a separate mp3 file two months later as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 5.

It also contains two unique versions of previously-released tracks, an instrumental version of Superfunkycalifragisexy, and a 1986 live version of America, both of which are not available elsewhere. Three tracks are included for which it is unknown if Prince was involved - Dandelion by Milenia, a track labeled Do It Right below (the title is taken from the track's repeated phrase), and an instrumental interlude; these may not feature Prince at all.

Twelve NPG Ahdio Segues were included, all of which are unavailable elsewhere. Additionally, three songs were included by other artists, with no musical input by Prince.

Track listing

Timings are not given, as several of the tracks overlap or feature spoken segues in the format of a radio DJ speaking over a song's introduction. Please note that tracks that are simple edits of other versions are not included in that song's listing - a track is included in the individual song listing only if it is a remix, live, or other alternate recording.

Quotations and trivia

  • This is the shortest of all eleven NPG Ahdio Shows, which drew some complaints, later joked about by Femi Jiya in a skit on a later show.
  • Spoken segue # 3 mentions that they would like to include a track by India.Arie, but they are not able to as "she is under contract".
