17 Days (The Rain Will Come Down, Then You Will Have 2 Choose. If U Believe Look 2 The Dawn & U Shall Never Lose) (3:56)
Review: Given that Prince Rogers Nelson was responsible for writing and recording some of the most brilliantly original music of the 1980s, it seems churlish to pick favourites. That said, there's no denying that "When Doves Cry" remains one of the Purple One's finest moments. This reissue of the original 1884 12" boasts the superior album version - an extended workout that begins with a burst of Hendrix-style guitar, makes more of the bustling electro rhythm and generally provides a more satisfying dancefloor experience - and original B-side "17 Days (The Rain Will Come Down, Then U Will Have to Choose. If U Believe Look 2 The Dawn & U Shall Never Lose)". The latter became a favoruite of fans and got regular airings in Prince's live shows up until his tragic death.
