To each their own, but I've always thought the studio version of that song was a stunning, heartfelt piece of work, made doubly poignant by the knowledge that Clapton was falling hoplessly in love with Harrison's wife. The sound, and ensemble playing, are near-perfect.
The Hall of Fame version becomes a great showcase for Prince, and if that was its purpose, it works well. I'm not entirely sure, though, that was actually the point.
