Percussionist/vocalist /songwriter Sheila E. has been well acquainted with the "Glamorous Life" of the music business since she was old enough to pound a drum. She started at the age of fifteen on the road with her father. She also began working with George Duke, touring and recording for three years. She joined forces with her father again to form Pete & Sheila. Meanwhile, word of her drumming abilities was spreading, and she worked in the studio and on stage with Con Funk Shun, Herbie Hancock, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and others. Another artist tapping Sheila's talent was Prince, who asked her to work on his Purple Rain soundtrack album and encouraged her to record her own album. Written, performed and "directed" by Sheila E., "The Glamorous Life" was originally released in 1984. A multiple Grammy and American Music Award winner, the CD features the smash hit in the title track, which was also the subject of one of the most provocative videos of the year. Sheila E. launched a three-monthly coast-to-coast solo tour before joining Prince as both an opening act and as part of his stage band for the record-breaking Purple Rain tour. This Compact Disc edition of The Glamorous Life features the club edit of the hit title track.
