American Jam is an unreleased track recorded in May or June 1980, at Prince’s North Arm Drive Home Studio in Orono, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced the Dirty Mind album tracks). Nothing is known about the song’s music or lyrics. During Prince: A Celebration in June 2000, computer screens at Paisley Park Studios offered names of a selection of tracks which users could vote on for inclusion on Crystal Ball Volume II, and while American Jam was chosen by fans, the project was ultimately abandoned.
