Single details


Released: 1979 (assumed)
Related album: none
Label(s): DDS Productions
Non-album tracks: Stone Lover (Part One) (3:54)

Stone Lover (Part One) (3:33)

Stone Lover was the first and only single to be released by MLF (Music Love and Funk). The exact release date of this record is unknown, but it does precede the 1979 Lewis Connection LP.

The track marks the first time Prince appeared on a release by another artist, on a track he did not write (although earlier recordings by 94 East were released later). It also marks the first release of a collaboration between Prince and Sonny Thompson (recorded almost 13 years before Diamonds And Pearls, the next released collaboration). Confusingly though participating musicians have made conflicting statements whether Prince played on the track or not.
