The Sign “☮” the Times concert movie was released on November 20, 1987 and made $3-million at the box office. Most of the film was shot at Paisley Park Studios after most of the overseas tour footage was deemed unusable.
Even though the home video release was eventually certified platinum, the film has been out of print since the VHS re-issue in 1991. But why? Prince was known to discard his past work in favor of new and fresher options. He always wanted to give listeners something they hadn’t heard before. But Sign “☮” the Times remains an undeniable work of art.

“Sign o’ the Times”
“Play in the Sunshine”
“Little Red Corvette”/”Housequake”
“I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man”
