    Just a quick note: The European and USA CD's were not released until circa (Jan) 1989 and were never released the same year as the vinyl LP's. 1987 copyrights year was used as the release date for the cd's which is technically (if not factually) incorrect. Far easier to confirm the 1990 release date for the Japan CD as it was printed on the OBI.

      This album is great and really set Prince apart from his peers yet again. Not many pop artists of his time were churning out jazz funk fusion albums at the same time writing hits for others, making movies and putting out his own 2LP set in the same year without blinking or taking any drugs. Madhouse 8 is a sophisticated jazz fusion recording between Sheila, Levi, Eric Leeds and Prince and deserves a much needed reissue and re-release. The next release 16 goes in even harder on the funk and is not to be missed.

        Amazed this record has not been reviewed yet. I really like this album, cool instrumental jazz funk, Eric Leeds plays some killer saxophone, funky bass and a solid album! Sure Prince had something to do with this! Recommended!
