This is my favorite Time album because it's the best of both worlds--Prince songs and songs by the guys pictured on the actual album cover for a change. And in my opinion, the songs by the band hold their own with Prince's compositions--especially Monte's "Sometimes I Get Lonely".

It is their definitive album. It's a good thing WB insisted on input from Jam and Lewis because 'The Corporate World' was absolutely abysmal.

The Time, Prince says, is proof of the good that can come from a group dissolving and eventually coming back together. "They broke up because they'd run out of ideas," he says. "They went off and did their own thing, and now they're terrifying."

An Interview with Jimmy Jam of The Original 7ven, Part Two

Jimmy Jam discusses The Time, Prince, and working with Janet and Michael Jackson.

April 19, 2012

By Chaz Lipp, Contributor

Let's look back to 1990 and the Graffiti Bridge movie. How did the original seven members of The Time come to be involved with that project?

Jimmy Jam: Let me try to clarify a little bit. There might be a misconception that we got back together to do the Graffiti Bridge movie. That's absolutely not the case. What happened, Morris [Day] was working on a project with Prince. It was basically going to be more of a solo project. Prince was going to do the bulk of the writing and playing. I think it was going to be calledCorporate World, but there were a few different names floating around at that point. Around that same time period, we had also been working with Morris on different projects and things. We thought, let's get The Time back together and just make a record. So we got back together and started making an album. This was with Prince's blessing, by the way. And we had our own idea for a film.

The Time still made a very successful album though, which includes some songs that were in the movie.

That's the reason that, when everything was done, Pandemoniumcame out, which was basically our album. Then the Graffiti Bridge soundtrack came out, which had four of our songs on it. Just one soundtrack album probably would've made more sense. But it was because we were already doing our other things. We were like, "Okay, we'll do your movie, Prince, but we're still going to do our own album." We were already on the path to do that.

How did the same basic track from "My Summertime Thang" onPandemonium end up being reused for "The Latest Fashion," which was part ofGraffiti Bridge?

The origin of "My Summertime Thang" came about around Ice Cream Castle [1984], right around when me and Terry got fired from The Time. We always loved the song, so that was one of the ones we asked Prince for. We said, "Hey Prince, 'My Summertime Thang,' can we have that? That was our song from back in the day." And he said, "Yeah, you can have it. But you know what, I changed the words. It's called 'The Latest Fashion' now." And we're like,"No, no, no, no." So that was sort of a compromise. He wanted it as "The Latest Fashion" because it worked in the movie for the scene. But we wanted it as "My Summertime Thang" because that's what it was back when we had it. There was a lot of that kind of thing going on, which is why I make the distinction that we didn't get back together specifically for Graffiti Bridge. We were already on our own path, doing our own thing. We kind of reached a compromise to do it.

Here is part 2 of our interview with Jellybean Johnson, drummer for The Time. ..

BBP: And I heard that the last album—the album you guys did in the early 90's...

Johnson: Pandemonium

BBP: Yeah! That one! That was the first album you really had a lot of creative control over as a group.

Johnson: Yeah. Yeah, and he was actually cool about that. He gave us two or three songs. He stayed out of our way. That when he was (with) Kim Basinger, so he brought her to the studio and shit, was hanging out with that, and he was nice that whole time...
