Did you know Prince once recorded an entire album as his female alter ego called Camille?

This was in 1986 at the height of his powers, when Michael Jackson was asking him to collaborate with him, but Prince decided to do his own thing as usual.

Apparently he artificially pitched up all his vocals to make himself sound like a woman, and was a couple of weeks away from releasing the record before he pulled the plug!

He later used a lot of the songs on different albums, but the originals never saw the light of day. But one of Prince's old assistants is selling her collection of old albums and demos, and it includes a rare acetate copy of the Camille album - which has got to be one of the rarest Prince records in the world!
