CC Outtake: Prince Rogers Nelson, Prefame 1977

Photographer Robert Whitman has just published a series of images he took of Prince in 1977. Back then, the performer was a relative unknown dabbling in erotofunk before leading us into the future of music about a decade later. His almost hypnotic charisma aside, I couldn’t help but feel this shot taken in front of the landmark Music Wall in Minneapolis deserved its own place on CC.

Of course, Prince will always have a place on CC for this song alone.

You can find more of Robert Whitman’s photos of Prince here.

And in the spirit of this late performer, here is a NSFW CC on the Corvette.
