The very first 12" single I ever bought as a kid was Prince & The Revolution's Let's Go Crazy / Erotic City. There was no doubt in my mind that I was completely hooked on remixes. I was trolling record shops when I was 12, tracking down the elusive single with weird mixes, instrumentals, acapellas, whatever I could find.
One of the rarest, weirdest, least likely single I stumbled upon was a 12" of I Would Die 4 U / Another Lonely Christmas by Prince & The Revolution. At first I was disappointed, thinking it was just a live recording and not an actual remix. I listened to it again, but didn't hear an audience. Motherfucker recorded a live version of the song in his studio. Completely re-recording a song from scratch and calling it an "extended version" was practically unheard of in the mid-80's.

Enjoy an old rare Prince gem.
