Outstanding Audio Book

Matos takes on a journey that begins with him simply buying a cassette tape! Princes revolutionary work in this album changed music! Matos sincere approach shows the magic of music. I have been blown away by the right music all my life and I feel what he felt! If U are a Prince fan this book is a must. I have listened to it over 20 times! Although this album was the last of it's kind, before the garbage of Rap Music took over. It sent the album world off with a bang! Thank U Michaelangelo Matos! Look me up on facebook if U read this review. My name is Joey Derden!
