Prince: Time of the Sign

Barney Hoskyns, 'Imp of the Perverse' (Virgin Books), 1988

1987 WAS A comparatively low-profile year for Prince, a year that saw some of his greatest music on the double Sign 'O' The Times album but one, too, in which an over-ambitious stage show had to curtail a world tour because of poor ticket sales.

Total word count of piece: 1933
