All Prince fans are salivating right about now. There have been several, landmark Prince associates’ releases all released within weeks of each other. So, I’ve decided to hijack my No Turn Unstoned radio show and do a trilogy of shows for Prince’s associates’ new releases. This particular show will feature The Time / Original 7ven. Last Week’s show was in celebration of fDELUXE’s (AKA The Family) new album, Gaslight. Next week’s show will feature The Escovedo family for their new release, Now and Forever.

The Time, now known as The Original 7ven, hasn’t released an album since 1990’s Pandemonium, my personal favorite. It’s been eleven years, not as long as The Family, but nevertheless long enough. Jellybean Johnson is doing double duty with both projects. He is a busy man;)

In celebration of their brand new album, Condensate, this mix features the musical output and contributions of the members of The Original 7ven (AKA The Time): Morris E. Day, Jesse Johnson, Jellybean Johnson, Monte Moir, Jerome Benton, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis).
