Sign o' the Times is the ninth studio album by American singer, songwriter, producer, and t Prince. It was first released as a double album on March 30, 1987, by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. The album is the follow-up to Parade (1986) and is Prince's first album following his disbanding of the Revolution
The album he released on March 31, 1987 was a Prince solo record that, like his 1980 artistic breakthrough Dirty Mind and his two earlier albums, was essentially a one-man-band recording which relied heavily on the LinnDrum, various samplers, and his remarkable aptitude on every instrument under the sun. Of the 16 songs on Sign o’ the Times, only three have co-writers, and save for one track ( It’s Going to Be a Beautiful Night ), outside musical accompaniment is slight

Took me awhile to be able to wrap my tongue around some parts and also to get used to his use of starting on the off-beat et. .It's clear to me that when he is doing studio work that he is really thinking ahead to how the song will be done live. If you view the Sign 'O' The Times concert movie after learning this album, you can see what I'm talking about in comparison.
King’s first album for the Stax label combines his hard, unflashy guitar playing with the sleek sound of the label’s house band, Booker T. and the MG’s. Hits such as Crosscut Saw and Laundromat Blues earned King a new rock & roll audience. I Want Your Sex" is one of the decade's finest Prince imitations, and the best ballad is the spooky, soulful "Father Figure. But the band from East . was a surprise success, mixing traditional Mexican sounds with blues and rockabilly for rough roots rock.
