ABC, 123 is an unreleased track Prince, Pepé Willie and Ike Paige worked on in Autumn 1976 at Ike Paige’s appartment in Harlem, New York, NY, USA.

Prince traveled to New York City in Autumn, 1976, taking with him a demo tape to give to various record companies. He was staying at his half-sister Sharon Nelson’s appartment in Manhattan. Pepé Willie, whom he known since 1974, was also in New York working on some songs with Ike Paige. Willie invited Prince to Paige’s appartment in Harlem and started to work together on ABC, 123.

The track remains unreleased as it was most likely not finished during Prince’s visit in New York. No recording of ABC, 123 is known to exist.
