Prince, "Sign o' the Times"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, Minnesota in 1986 for Prince's "Sign o' the Times", first released as a single in February 1987...
"I must confess that it wasn't until the release of "Kiss", a year before this, that Prince truly won me over. There was for me never any denying his talent, but his presentation until that time had not been 'my speed'. I had seen him early in his rise but was put off by the raincoat, high heels and lingerie wardrobe combo. Anyway, he proved himself to be one of the greats of his time and this is a piece of Protest R'n'B that can hold i's own in the company of Curtis, Marvin and The Isleys. It is truly sad that he is no longer with us." - KV
