’'1976 instrumentals’' is a series of nine unreleased home recordings recorded in early-mid 1976 at the Russell Ave, Anderson house, Minneapolis, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as Don’t You Wanna Ride?, Hey Lover, I Spend My Time Loving You, Leaving For New York, Nightingale and Rock Me, Lover). Despite being essentially instrumental, some contain vocalizations. They are grouped together for this entry, since many of the tracks are very brief (the shortest being 11 seconds), and are sketches more than full pieces. None of the pieces have been reused or re-recorded, and all remain unreleased. Of note is that these are the earliest known instrumental pieces by Prince.
