NA-Doc: Prince in the 1980s

In 1975, Pepe Willie, the husband of Prince’s cousin, Shauntel, formed the band 94 East with Marcy Ingvoldstad and Kristie Lazenberry. Willie hired André Cymone and Prince to record tracks with 94 East. Those songs were written by Willie and Prince contributed guitar tracks. Prince also co-wrote, with Willie, the 94 East song, „Just Another Sucker.“ The band recorded tracks which later became the albumMinneapolis Genius – The Historic 1977 Recordings. Prince also recorded, but never released, a song written by Willie, „If You See Me“ (also known as, „Do Yourself A Favor“). In 1995, Willie released the album 94 East featuring Prince, Symbolic Beginning, which included original recordings by Prince and Cymone.
