Prince rarely made mistakes but in 1987, #PRINCE made two. With the release of the brilliant #SignOTheTimes, #Housequake was blowing up on American airwaves. But Alan Leeds & Prince didn't know as they were touring overseas and released "If I Was Ur Girlfriend" instead. Even Alan Leeds said it was a mistake. The second mistake was not taking the tour to the U.S. I wish we could have gotten that along with the movie released in theaters. After the Revolution was disbanded in October 86, Prince had a new and ready to roll by Feb. 1987. They were bad and they were funky. Sheila E. shined on the drums and Prince's playfulness was unmatched at the time. Some of the greatest Prince recordings and my favorite recordings are of the Sign O The Times rehearsals including "Starfish & Coffee" and different arrangements of "Strange Relationship" & more. One has to wonder if Prince didn't want a US tour to spite Warner Bros. for making SOTT exist as it was supposed to be the 3 LP Crystal Ball set, not the 2 LP Sign O The Times set. Sign O The Times is the bench mark and is in desperate need of a remaster and deluxe edition..
