It began as a project for everyone. For the first time, Prince would allow song contributions and performances from The Revolution. It could have been the brilliant follow-up to "Purple Rain" the world was waiting for. Of course, as sure as the day is long, inter-band disagreements changed the course of "The Dream Factory." More Prince solo tracks were added to replace Wendy & Lisa tracks. New stuff was written and a 3 LP set, "Crystal Ball" was delivered to Warner Brothers. They said no way. Reconfigured, remixed and retitled, "Sign O'The Times" was released and the rest is history.
This is the masterpiece, believed to be the final configuration of "The Dream Factory.
