Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions Multimedia Show

July 13, 2018 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm 47 South Oak Street, Ventura, CA

Featuring groundbreaking, never-before-heard stories, Duane Tudahl pulls back the paisley curtain to reveal the untold story of Prince’s rise from cult favorite to the biggest rock star on the planet. His journey is meticulously documented through detailed accounts of his time secluded behind the doors of the recording studio as well as his days on tour. 

With unprecedented access to the musicians, singers, and studio engineers who knew Prince best, including members of the Revolution and the Time, Duane Tudahl weaves an intimate saga of an eccentric genius and the people and events who helped shape the groundbreaking music he created. From Sunset Sound Studios’ daily recording logs and the Warner Bros. vault of information, Tudahl uncovers hidden truths about the origins of songs such as “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” and “Raspberry Beret” and also reveals never-before-published details about Prince’s unreleased outtakes.
Duane will be joined by Peggy Mac, Prince’s recording engineer for Purple Rain and other albums, and accompanied by a multimedia “Music Speaks” presentation that delves behind the pages to discover the depth of research Duane did and reveal the hidden-secrets of Prince’s approach to recording studio methods.
