This is the album that pulled it together in a strong way.

Prince was creating a utopia scene and What Time is It? presented an area of UPTOWN very detailed

p 48 chapter 4 Pawns Possessed: the Rise & Fall of Prince

The hostilities burst to the surface during the last show of the tour at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati. During their opening set, the Time found themselves being pelted by eggs from offstage. Gradually, they realized that Prince and some of his band members were the culprits. The barrage increased, and, toward the end of the set, Prince and his accomplices abducted Jerome Benton, a dancer for the group, from the stage and poured honey all over him. They they pelted hims with garbage. "They tarred and feathered him, basically," recalled Fink, who did not participate and insisted to the Time members that he wanted no part of the battle.

Then, as the Time's set ended, Chick Huntsberry grabbed Jesse Johnson and hauled him to Prince's dressing room. There, Huntsberry handcuffed Johnson to a horizontal coat rack bolted into a brick wall. Prince came in and began taunting Johnson and tossing Doritos chips and other pieces of food at him. "This is what you get for talking about my mama!" Prince shouted.

The various members of Prince's band and crew in the room looked on with horror as the episode continued. "It was a cruel thing to do," observed Bennett. Fink recalled, "I just sat there and said to myself, this is getting out of hand."
Humiliated and frightened, Johnson writhed in his cuffs. Finally, to the amazement of the onlookers, he managed to rip the entire twelve-foot-long coat rack out of the wall. His hands were still cuffed to the rack, which he began swinging wildly. "Jesse was uncontrollable," Fink said. "He just lost it. Chick had to contain the situation before someone got hurt."

BBP: So what’s this I hear about him getting handcuffed to a—what was it—a coat rack?
Jellybean Johnson: That’s back in our early days of The Time and shit. We got into a food fight with Prince’s band…that was our first year out. That was us, them and Zapp. And the last couple of nights of the tour we got into it with him and his band, Prince and his band, and they started doing shit to us while we were on stage. And one night they just took Jesse off stage—and Jerome—and took Jesse back in their dressing room while we were in concert. Prince had his bodyguard take Jesse off the stage, take him back in the dressing room, handcuff him to the thing. He (Prince) played guitar, Prince jumped in The Time and played guitar while this is going down. Back then his band put food and shit all over Jesse and Jerome.

BBP: Wow…
Jellybean Johnson: This is the kind of childish shit that Prince did. So, after we got done, we went back and rescued Jesse, and we went and got us some shit, put us some dirty clothes on and found every egg, and everything we could and waited for them after the concert. And we beat their asses! Of course it cost Morris a bunch of money because Prince charged Morris a bunch of money for wrecking the arena.

Morris really blew it. They all look like they were having so much fun. The Time could've been huge and endured.

Dancin' Flu is an unreleased song believed to have been recorded in April 1981, at Prince's Wayzata Home Studio, Wayzata, MN, USA or Kiowa Trail Home Studio, Chanhassen, MN (during the same set of sessions as I Can't Figure It Out). The song includes lyrics by Dez Dickerson (who wrote the lyrics for Cool around the same time). It may have been intended for The Time's first album The Time, but little is known about the track. The song remains unreleased.

  • Prince - all vocals and instruments, except where noted (assumed)
  • Dez Dickerson - guitar (assumed)

The Time: What Time Is It?, home studio, 11 January 1982
Gigolos Get Lonely Too (4:40)*
Bold Generation

The Time: What Time Is It?, Sunset Sound, 14-20 January 1982
International Lover (6:35)* (14/1)

Initial tracking took place on 14 January, 1982 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (three days after Bold Generation and Gigolos Get Lonely Too, the same day as The Walk, and the day before Colleen), during sessions for The Time's second album What Time Is It?.

It was intended to be sung by Morris Day, but Prince reclaimed the song to use on 1999 instead. It is likely that Morris Day recorded vocals for the song during these sessions, but this is unconfirmed.

-PrinceVault


The Walk (9:30)* (14/1)
Colleen (15/1)
You’re All I Want #1 (16/1)
Wild And Loose (7:32)* (19/1) (Prince/Dez Dickerson)
Turn It Up (5:30) (20/1)
Turn It Up (Edit) (3:33)
Turn It Up (Part 2) (2:30)

Single: 777-9311 - Prince Vault

Baby, what's your phone number?
I know I'm kinda fast, but I hate to waste time
Baby, what's your phone number?
Girl, I have to ask 'cause you're so fine
777-9311, I want to spend the night with you if that's alright
777-9311, ooh baby, please can I come tonight?
Baby, what's your phone number?
How can you be reached on a lonely night?
Baby, what's your phone number?
How can I get into you when I'm feeling right?
777-9311, I want to spend the night with you if that's alright
777-9311, ooh baby, please can I come tonight, jellybean?
Ain't nothin' worse than rejection
Feel a little better if you'd slapped my face
Hey, what's your phone number?
Can't you see the agony I'm goin' through?
Baby, what's your phone number?
Girl, it's getting hard baby, won't you let me love you, love you?
777-9311, I want to spend the night with you if that's alright
777-9311, ooh baby, please can I come tonight, ooh?
Hey baby, what's your phone number?
I know it sounds fast, but I ain't got all night
Come on baby, what's your phone number?
You know I got to be cooler than this cat you're sittin' with
I'll do you right, baby, come on!
Come on
Come on
Oh no, come on
Oh, hey
777-9311, I want to spend the night with you if that's alright
777-9311, ooh baby, please can I come tonight?
Come tonight, if it's alright (777-9311)
Honey, please can I come tonight?
Can't you see what I'm gonna do? (777-9311)
I want to do it tonight, baby, I want to do it to you
It's on fire, you burn me out (777-9311)
It's getting higher, you know what I'm talkin' about
Help me out good Lord above (777-9311)
Marry me girl, give me some of that love, cherry!

What Time Is It? (Front Cover)

While reflecting on the track’s history on Facebook in 2014, Jesse Johnson wrote "777-9311 Was A Stock Drum Beat In Prince’s Linn LM-1 ($5,500 drum machine you know it wasn’t The Time’s) ... The beat was programed into the Linn LM1 by Tower of Power drummer David Garibaldi ... for Roger Linn." (David Garibaldi’s drumming would also be sampled, uncredited, years later on The Time’s Release It.) He also added "Prince used my $179.00 Hondo Strat to play the chords on 777 (that’s why the guitar sounds so nice and dull...cause it was cheap!)"

The title of the track was Dez Dickerson’s home phone number at the time, and he was allegedly upset that it was used in the song; when the album was released he received several unwanted calls and changed the number as a result.
