It’s Too Late is an unreleased cover of a Carole King song that appeared on her 1971 album Tapestry. It was recorded in 1974 by Grand Central, a band consisting of Prince, André Anderson, Charles Smith, Linda Anderson and William Doughty, with Pepé Willie overseeing. The reel-to-reel recording-session was a result of winning a North Commons Park battle-of-the-band contest, where the prize was $75 and 8 hours recording time at the Cookhouse Studios. Other songs recorded in the session were Whenever, You Remind Me Of Me and Love Unlimited’s instrumental Love’s Theme.
