Album review: Prince's posthumous EP is great for about 3 minutes

What a tease. "Deliverance," a six-track EP of previously unreleased Prince songs, surfaced a few days ago and then was quickly removed from several major digital music sites, including iTunes, after a lawsuit was filed in federal court by Prince's estate. The tracks were assembled and released by one of the late singer's former studio engineers, Ian Boxhill, apparently without the estate's authorization. Boxhill co-wrote and co-produced the tracks, which were recorded in 2006-08, according to Rogue Music Alliance, a Washington-based record company.
