Über The Time
A Minneapolis group who got their start as Prince's opening act, the Time first emerged back in 1981 with a self-titled debut album. Their follow-up, What Time Is It? yielded several successful singles, earning them a sizable following and a reputation for funk-filled, sex-driven dance jams. In 1984 they were featured in Prince's film "Purple Rain" and also released their third LP Ice Cream Castle which included the hit "Jungle Love." During the mid-to-late 80's Time members Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis established themselves as R&B production gurus, crafting major hits for artists including Janet Jackson and Boyz II Men. Flamboyant frontman Morris Day released several underwhelming solo albums, and the group reunited in 1990 to record their final album Pandemonium.
