The Time

Profile:

Born in Minneapolis, the group featured lead-singer Morris Day, keyboardist Jimmy Jam Harris, bassist and co-lead vocalist Terry Lewis, keyboardist Monte Moir, guitarist Monte Moir, and drummer Jellybean Johnson, all from two Twin Cities funk units, Flyte Tyme and "Enterprise".

The band's first Warner Bros. album, 1981's The Time, was created almost single-handedly by Prince (who wrote and played on tracks he produced under the early pseudonym Jamie Starr).

By 1982, the year of "777-9311", from '82 Warner Bros. album "What Time Is It?", the group had already established itself as one of the hottest bands working the live circuit.

The original members reunited in 1990 for the album "Pandemonium" on Paisley Park label and released the single "Jerk Out". Despite expectations, the reunion only brought moderate success.
