Jamie Starr & the Time 1980-1984 Somewhere in Uptown

The Starr ★ Company

Just because I love this group of guys and this block of Uptown!!

.

Ain't got time for politics, we never fight no war (Never fight no war)
Makin' love and music is the only thing worth fighting for
Bold Generation, we wanna change the world
The only thing that's in our way is you
Change the world, gotta change the world
Bold Generation, your old ideas
We're sick and tired of you telling us what to do
Don't tell us what to do
Bold Generation
Okay

The Time
One day I'm gonna be somebody
One day I'm gonna be rich
I'm gonna say my prayers and work real hard
So that I never have to dig a ditch
The only way I'd work at a car wash
Is if I owned the whole damn place
But if gettin' to the top means washin' a car
I'd be scrubbin' with a smile on my face
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna stand out in a crowd
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna make somebody proud
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna stand out in a crowd
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna make somebody proud
One day I'm gonna be a star
I'm gonna do whatever it takes
Why should I starve when I could be elsewhere
Makin' what the rich man makes
If I should die before I'm rich
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
But if I'm rich before I die
I wanna work 'cause nothin' comes cheap
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna stand out in a crowd
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna make somebody proud
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna stand out in a crowd
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna make somebody proud
Somebody bring me a mirror
So I can look at my cash
Somebody bring me a mirror
So I can look at my cash
We don't like new wave!

Jamie Starr's a thief
It's time to fix your clock
...
Now you can all take a bite of my purple rock, can we stop?

After hi school (4:22)
recorded april 1981 by [Prince] at his home studio [1] • performed by [Prince] (all instruments & vocals) with [Morris Day] (additional lead vocals) • final mixing 28th-30th april 1981 at Sunset Sound [7]
written by Dez Dickerson (uncredited) • registered to [Morris Day]
finally released 1981 on the Album [The Time] • 1981 on the 7"-Single [Get it up]

After Hi School

Seems like nothing's ever gonna change in my world
Every day is more the same old thing
But in the spring, I'm gonna graduate from hi school
Then I won't have to live by anybody else's rules
Everybody tells me things don't stay the same
If you wanna live, you gotta play the game
And they say: Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
Hey you, what you, what you gonna do?
And they say: Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
Hey you, what you, what you gonna do?
But there's a lot of stuff that I could learn to do in my world
Learn to drive a truck or maybe even join a band
My parents tellin' me I got to go to college
I won't get anywhere if I don't have the knowledge
Uncle Sam keeps sending letters in the mail
If you don't register, you're gonna go to jail, gonna go to jail
And they say: Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
Hey you, what you, what you gonna do?
And they say: Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
Hey you, what you, what you gonna do?
Listen to me, listen to me!
Hey you, what you gonna do?
Hey you, what you gonna do after hi school?
I'm talkin' to ya, you stupid slob!
Get a job, you bum!
I'm talkin to you

"It's all about self-respect...to take pride in who you are, the way you dress and groom, and the way you walk & talk." -Morris Day

14022203_1076478002405393_5127961494870285578_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&ccb=1-5&_nc_sid=a83260&_nc_ohc=03F90E0cNtQAX9TjXFi&_nc_ht=scontent-bos3-1.xx&oh=acef8b68e7a805e148a03a5e83f95452&oe=613B712F

Just before 1980, O'Neal became the lead singer in Minneapolis band Flyte Tyme, which featured Jimmy Jam on keyboards, Terry Lewis on bass, Monte Moir on keyboards, Jellybean Johnson on drums and Jesse Johnson on guitar.

Prince, now famous and signed to Warner Brothers Records, told childhood friend and former Grand Central bandmate Morris Day that he could get a new band with Day a record deal. Day and Prince decided the band would be Flyte Tyme and they would kick out Jellybean Johnson and Day could play drums.

That changed after a fateful dinner with O'Neal, the new band's singer.

Jam told Blues and Soul magazine in 1992 that Prince got angry with O'Neal when he started asking questions about money.

"Alex wanted a bunch of money and a new car and new clothes. He was outrageous, and we're all sitting there telling him to shut up," Jam told the magazine.

So Prince kicked out O'Neal and made Day the singer. The rest is history.

"It was hard to be back home in Minneapolis and watch all these guys, your friends and bandmates, on national television becoming so famous," O'Neal said.

Thetime_album.jpg

July 29. 1981 rel The Time[self titled album]

1.Get It Up
2.Girl
3.After Hi School After hi school is registered to Morris Day, yet it was actually written and demoed by Dez Dickerson
4.Cool Cool is registered as a collaboration of [Prince] (music) with Desmond "Dez" Dickerson (lyrics).
5.Oh, Baby
6.The Stick: Lisa Coleman, but it was registered to Jamie Starr.

.

Prince initiated this album before the band had even been assembled. The record was completed in only two weeks in April 1981 at his home studio in the basement of his house at Lake Riley in Chanhassen, Minneapolis. Only Oh, Baby was recorded in April 1979 at Alpha Studios in Los Angeles during the sessions for his own 1979 album "Prince". The final mixing of the tapes took place at Hollywood Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, from 28th to 30th April 1981. [Prince] himself plays more or less every note on the album. Matt Fink delivers synthesizer solos on Get it up and The stick, while Lisa Coleman provides some backing vocals on Cool and The Stick. Prince's own voice is often audible in the final mix.

.

On 29th July 1981 the first album [The Time] was released by Warner Bros. Records. The credits listed [Morris Day] (lead vocals), [Jesse Johnson] (guitar), [Terry Lewis] (bass), [Jellybean Johnson] (drums) as well as [Monte Moir] and [Jimmy Jam] (both keyboards) as the members of the band. The production credit is shared by [Morris Day] with a guy named Jamie Starr, who had been first introduced as an engineer on [Prince]'s 1980 album "Dirty Mind". Neither record nor sleeve contains any songwriting credits. The music itself bears all the hallmarks of [Prince]'s synth-based Minneapolis-Sound and it didn't take long before stories start to circulating at the press, that [Prince] himself was behind this project - writing all songs, playing mosts instruments and producing the complete album, only utilizing [Morris Day] to add some vocals on the final mix.

10.7.1981 @ Sam's(First Avenue) in Minneapolis

the Time's DEBUT Concert


Although they hadn't yet really played together as a group in the studio, in August 1981 THE TIME performed their first live appearance at a showcase for a small group of executives from Warner Bros. Records at the S.I.R. Studio in Los Angeles, with Prince overseeing the proceedings by the soundboard. During rehearsals for the upcoming "Controversy"-Tour with Prince, THE TIME incorporated Jerome Benton into their acts to be Morris Day's on-stage valet. The band warmed-up in autumn 1981 by playing a small number of low-key gigs around the Minneapolis aera.

THE TIME made their public live debut on 7th October 1981 at Sam's, a music club in Downtown, Minneapolis, with Prince digging the show back by the soundboard again. A few weeks later they embarked as the main supporting act on Prince's 1981/1982 "Controversy"-Tour.

The Man Who Shot All of Minneapolis’ Sounds
After 35 years as the Twin Cities’ go-to music photographer, Daniel Corrigan looks back with the collection Heyday, previewed here alongside an interview with First Avenue’s in-house shooter.
You didn’t shoot every single Prince show, but did you shoot as many as you could?

Yes, as many as I could. I think I shot Prince five shows, maybe six. I was lucky I got to see him. He liked to be in control. Part of his vision of what control was, was having control of your [own] images; I completely understand that. I was shooting him at the Orpheum [Theater], not First Avenue. I had to shoot from the aisles; we couldn’t shoot from the front. I was crouched down on the mid-side aisles, and there were probably four or five photographers there. I saw somebody point and I saw Chick, the bodyguard, come grinding up the aisle, and I thought, “Well, I did something wrong.” I think I’m about to get thrown out, and he walks past me and grabs the photographer right behind me who was doing, as far as I can tell, nothing different than I was doing, grabs him by the collar, and drags him out. I thought, “Well, I’m next.” And he never came back.

What was the Time like to shoot?

They were colorful and action-packed; they didn't stand in the same place. So they were a blast to shoot. You can shoot [a band like] Son Volt—whom I love—and they just stand there, right? There's nothing. Or you can do Morris Day, where he's back and forth across the stage. The keyboards are in place, but everyone else is mad dancing. I remember very colorful sets. With Son Volt, they just set their stuff up on the stage and stand there and play, and that's their thing, and I love them for it. It's some of my favorite music. But it's a different experience when it's the Time.

Photography is such now that I'm starting to believe it isn't really a photograph until it's a print. Because I ran into these Polaroids that Dave Pirner and I made in the Netherlands, on tour with Soul Asylum. We found a box of Polaroids from Husker Du’s Warehouse shoot. I remember the pictures; they weren't a surprise. But physically seeing the objects was cool.

I just listened to the remasted Debut album on spotify. Some songs are a revelation! Get it up sounds great. I hear a few guitar lines that Ive never noticed. The vocals also hit a litlle differently. Def an improvement.

The main drawbacks are the waaaaay too loud handclaps in the 1st half of "cool" and the entirety of "the stick". confused Not sure why you'd emphasize that particular sound/frequency to the point of annoyance, but hey... here we are.

In general, the remast is def an improvemnt on the original IMO cool

This is what you want...This is what you get.

the 'muted' effect of those made them stand out for me originally. too loud and it's like having a background singer singing over Prince

Possessed: the Rise & Fall of Prince

Chapter 4: PAWNS

page 44

When Prince offered to build a band around Morris Day in exchange for the song "Partyup" in the summer of 1980, it was the latest shift in a long and complex relationship. For years, Day had shadowed Prince along the road to stardom. When they were teenagers, Day joined Prince's first band, Champagne, on drums, replacing Charles Smith. They developed a strong friendship, and Day's mother, LaVonne Daugherty, helped manage the group. Prince, Day and bassist Andre Cymone(then using his last name Anderson) functioned as a team, sharing leadership responsibilities as they competed with other Minneapolis groups.

...

In the summer of 1980, during the recording of Dirty Mind, Day found his way back, albeit in a less glamorous capacity; he became a "runner" for Prince's band, picking up sandwiches and drinks during rehearsals. But Prince continued to respect Day's musicianship, as his interest in "Partyup" showed. When the deal for the song was struck, events finally seemed to have shifter back in Day's favor.

While specific recording dates are not known, the album sessions took place from May to June 1980, @ Prince's North Arm Drive home studio (in Orono, Minnesota) "Somewhere in Uptown", and completed in June 1980 at Hollywood Sound Recorders in Los Angeles, California. The song was based on a groove created by Morris Day. In return for using the groove, Prince offered a choice of $10,000 or help in getting a record deal. Morris Day rejected the money, and instead, Prince helped to create The Time for Morris...
