In true Prince form, the A-side "Gett Off" (spelled with two t's because the B-side to "New Power Generation" a few years earlier was called "Get Off") was Prince's "gift" to the club community, being released only to D.J.'s and clubs on Prince's birthday that year and not being serviced to pop or R&B radio. Nevertheless, the single went gold (1,000,000+ copies for a single at the time) and made it up to #23 on Billboard's Hot 100 from sales and 'bootleg' airplay alone. Despite all that, the real kick-ass track here is the B-side, "Horny Pony." "Horny Pony" was rumoured to be the first song that Prince and his then new band (the New Power Generation) cut together and you can tell by the way Prince and Rosie (Gaines) play off each other that the whole group clicked from the get go.
