Prince Sign O The Times Movie Download

Download hd Music legend Prince and his band perform 13 numbers, most of them from his double album, 'Sign 'o' the Times.' This is high-energy stuff: neon signs flash above the stage, suggesting the honky-tonk district of a big city, and between numbers there are vignettes of street life. Sign o' the Times (styled Sign '☮' the Times) is a 1987 American concert film written and directed by Prince. In 1987, to capitalize on his growing success in Europe, Prince toured extensively to promote the album of the same name and sales increased accordingly. However, the United States remained resistant to his latest album, and sales began to drop; it was at this point that.

Sign O’ The Times (stylized as Sign “☮︎” The Times) is the ninth full-length studio album by Prince, and his ‘solo’ release since 1982’s 1999 (his intervening album’s were credited to Prince and the Revolution). It was released worldwide in March 1987.


Sessions and compiling

Eight of the album’s sixteen tracks were included on various configurations of the Dream Factory album, planned as the fourth album by Prince and the Revolution. When the Revolution was disbanded in October 1986, Prince reworked the album.

In late October 1986, Prince worked on an unrelated album, Camille (to be given the artist credit of Camille), on which Housequake, Strange Relationship and If I Was Your Girlfriend were included, before combining elements of the two projects to create Crystal Ball, a triple album initially also credited to Camille, but possibly also considered to be credited solely to Prince.

Warner Bros. were skeptical about releasing a triple album, and Prince removed seven of the 22 tracks and recorded the radio-friendly U Got The Look, completing the album on 15 January 1987 with the recording of an introductory piece acting as a segue from Sign O’ The Times to Play In The Sunshine.

The album went trough various track-sequences, until as late as the second week of January 1987 before it was finalized with the sixteen tracks ultimately on the release.

Promotion

The album produced four commercially-released singles, Sign O’ The Times (which preceded the album), If I Was Your Girlfriend, U Got The Look and I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man, as well as two promotional releases, Hot Thing (in the USA only) and The Cross (in South Africa only).

Prince supported the album with a major European tour, titled Sign O’ The Times Tour, which focused largely on the album (while missing some of Prince’s previous hit singles). Two dates on the tour were filmed and the resulting concert film, Sign O’ The Times was released worldwide, focused on the territories where the tour did not travel.


Charts

The album reached number 6 on the US Billboard Top Pop Albums Chart, and number 4 on the Billboard Top Black Albums Chart.


Certifications

The album was certified platinum by RIAA three months after release, on 2 July 1987.
