Prince and the Revolution: Live, a concert film shot at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse in March 1985 and released on home video soon after, is now available to stream online in full. The set has Prince at the height of his post-Purple Rain powers, backed by the classic Revolution lineup of Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Matt Fink, Mark Brown, Eric Leeds, and Bobby Z. It's essentially one long highlight reel, but his mid-set run of "How Come You Don't Call Me Anymore," "Let's Pretend We're Married," and "International Lover" is ridiculous.

The YouTube stream is doubling as a fundraiser for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. The soundtrack, which has been bootlegged endlessly over the past 35 years, is up on streaming services too. Listen to that below and watch Prince and the Revolution: Live at the top of the page.
