From the Wikipedia entry:

"Peach" is a song by Prince from his 1993 compilations, The Hits 2 and The Hits/The B-Sides.

The B-side was the live version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" in the U.S., while the UK backed the song with an edit of "My Name Is Prince." In addition, the UK issued two CD singles for "Peach", each backed by hits not on the collection. The first disc contained "Peach," "Mountains*," "Partyman," and "Money Don't Matter 2 Night." The second disc contained "Peach", along with "I Wish U Heaven," "Girls & Boys," and "My Name Is Prince". The first disc was sold in a special fold-out collector's case with a place holder for the second disc, which was sold separately.

"Peach" was a failure stateside. It peaked at #7 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, which roughly equals #107, however, it did peak at #14 in the UK, its b-side "Nothing Compares 2 U" charted at #62 on the U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop chart.

My generation's Hendrix:

His name is Prince, and he is funky.

I love Price, and wish he had done more music like this. Actually, I thought Peach sounded a bit like Lenny Kravitz, or perhaps the other way around. Though Prince is a far better guitarist. It seems to me that usually the best song isn't the one that makes the charts.

I've loved Prince since 1999, on which he played every instrument. Kravitz recorded every instrument on his first album (Let Love Rule, I think), so he could have been a Prince fan as well.
