'''Kamasutra''' is the first and only studio album by [[The NPG Orchestra]], and was released in February, 1997 on cassette through direct order from [[1-800 New Funk]] (with the full album repeated on each side). A CD release was included with the direct order edition of [[Prince]]'s 20th full-length studio album [[Album: Crystal Ball|Crystal Ball]], the fourth to be credited to [[File: SymbolSmallerBlue.png|link=Alias: Symbol]].  
+
  
All eleven tracks were written by [[Prince]], and all contain him playing most of the non-orchestral instruments, with [[Eric Leeds]] playing saxophone, horns by the [[NPG Hornz]], and orchestra added by [[Clare Fischer]]'s orchestra. The album is entirely instrumental, with repeated musical themes throughout, and was recorded between Spring, 1994 and 1996 by [[Prince]] (as [[File: SymbolSmallerBlue.png|link=Alias: Symbol]]) at [[Paisley Park Studios]], Chanhassen, MN, USA, and by [[Clare Fischer]]'s orchestra at Ocean Way Recording, Hollywood, CA, USA.
 
  
No singles were released, but [[The Plan]] had been released in edited form on [[Album: Emancipation|Emancipation]], with liner notes noting the forthcoming release of '''Kamasutra'''. In late 1997, the [[NPG Dance Company]] (led by [[Mayte]]) danced to the full '''Kamasutra''' album during the second act of their three-act Around The World In A Day Tour. As a direct-order release, the album was not eligible for entry in any charts.

An early version of the artwork (done in 1995) shows the album (before being included as a bonus disc to [[Album: Crystal Ball|Crystal Ball]]) was originally to be released as a stand-alone album credited to [[Prince]] (as [[File: SymbolSmallerBlue.png|link=Alias: Symbol]]), which would have made that [[Prince]]'s 20th album and the the fourth to be credited to [[File: SymbolSmallerBlue.png|link=Alias: Symbol]] instead of [[Album: Crystal Ball|Crystal Ball]]. The original artwork contained paintings by artist [http://www.chadattie.com/ Chad Attie] in the booklet, which were discarded when the album was released as part of the [[Album: Crystal Ball|Crystal Ball]] set.

Kamasutra is the first and only studio album by The NPG Orchestra, and was released in February 1997 on cassette through direct order from 1-800 New Funk (with the full album repeated on each side). A CD release was included with the direct order edition of Prince's 20th full-length studio album Crystal Ball, the fourth to be credited to SymbolSmallerBlue.png.


Sessions and compiling

All eleven tracks were written by Prince, and all contain him playing most of the non-orchestral instruments, with Eric Leeds playing saxophone, horns by the NPG Hornz, and orchestra added by Clare Fischer's orchestra. The album is entirely instrumental, with repeated musical themes throughout, and was recorded between Spring 1994 and 1996 by Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png) at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, and by Clare Fischer's orchestra at Ocean Way Recording, Hollywood, CA, USA.

The album's title is taken from the Kama Sutra, considered to be the most important work in a long line of Indian erotic literature, written by the Hindu philosopher Vātsyāyana (the Kama Sutra was previously mentioned by Prince in We Can Fuck (later released as We Can Funk)).

An early version of the artwork (done in 1995) shows the album (before being included as a bonus disc to Crystal Ball) was originally to be released as a stand-alone album credited to Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png), which would have made that Prince's 20th album and the the fourth to be credited to SymbolSmallerBlue.png instead of Crystal Ball. The original artwork contained paintings by artist Chad Attie in the booklet, which were discarded when the album was released as part of the Crystal Ball set.


Promotion

No singles were released, but The Plan had been released in edited form on Emancipation, with liner notes noting the forthcoming release of Kamasutra. In late 1997, the NPG Dance Company (led by Mayte) danced to the full Kamasutra album during the second act of their three-act Around The World In A Day Tour. As a direct-order release, the album was not eligible for entry in any charts.
