Prince Sign O The Times Super Deluxe Edition Boxset 8CD_DVD
2020 reissue of Prince’s iconic 1987 double album Sign O’ The Times that captured the artist at the peak of his creative powers. 
 
The final 16-track album included just some of the countless songs Prince recorded in the prolific period of 1985-1987, which saw the dissolution of his band The Revolution, the construction of his innovative recording complex, Paisley Park, and the creation (and ultimate abandonment) of the albums Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball. 
 
8CD/DVD Super Deluxe Edition.
 
Contents:
 
92 audio tracks, of which 63 are previously unreleased, including 45 studio tracks from Prince’s Vault.
 
Opens with Prince’s iconic album, Sign O’ The Times, dazzlingly remastered by original mastering engineer Bernie Grundman.
 
Includes an entire previously unreleased audio recording of Prince’s Sign O’ The Times tour performance in Utrecht, Netherlands, on June 20, 1987.
 
DVD features a complete previously unreleased recording of Prince’s benefit performance at Paisley Park, December 31st, 1987. The show includes Prince’s only on-stage collaboration with Miles Davis.
