CAS [ Past ] Album of the Month Club: Prince ‘Sign o’ the Times’

April’s Album Club on Thursday 28th April 8pm BST will feature Prince, Sign o’ the Times. Following on from 1986’s ParadeSign o the Times is the first release from Prince after three albums with The Revolution. The departure from his band allowed Prince even more freedom in the studio and time to experiment. The album itself is a contrast of emotions, upbeat with a heavy nod to the dancefloor. Listening back to the album now, it is still fantastic in all the right ways, perhaps not as immediately gratifying as Purple Rain, but an album that feels like it was laboured over and given the attention it deserves.

In advance of the meeting, Colleen will send out a ‘Musical Lead-Up Playlist’ of 10 songs – music that will set the tone for the deep album listening featuring Prince’s inspirations and other bands in their milieu at that time.

At the meeting, itself, Colleen tells the story behind the album for about 20 minutes and then we listen to the album in its entirety without interruption following our listening guidelines – phones off and no talking. To be clear, its up to you to source whichever copy of the album you can get your hands on – streaming online, CD, vinyl – whatever it is. We don’t broadcast the album over Zoom as you won’t have a great listening experience.

After the album finishes we reconvene and have a discussion about the album and our listening experience.

Patreon Members and higher tiers can attend the Album Club and also our Classic Album Pub Quiz which will be held on Thursday 28th April 8pm BST. You can subscribe here and don’t forget you can unsubscribe at any time.

We hope you can join us and thanks for listening!

Our events really resonate with people and one of our newest members sent this testimonial after her first Album Club last month:

“I wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and the knowledge there are friendly like minded people across the world out there and you brought us all together through a shared love of music. That is awesome. I have been mostly alone through the pandemic (am single, live alone – and yes do have the requisite cats to complete the stereotype!😂) My 25 + year career has been in events, currently in the West End of London so in my “normal” life I would be out at least 3/4 times a week. That has all obviously completely stopped for me and it has been a somewhat of a struggle mentally, music has kept me sane and Sunday’s event really helped my sanity. I truly hope to meet you in real life at some point to say thank you in person and look forward to engaging in more events.” – Angela
