Deane's Comments (rates this release 3.75/5.0)
A great Sign O The Times rehearsal with superb sound quality. It includes a number of rarities like The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker and a jam that starts with Delirious and made from Data Bank with new lyrics and parts of Love Or Money. The packaging SUCKS, but the sound and performance are so good

Mike's Comments (rates this release 4.25/5.0)
The regular Sign "O" the times set forms the nucleus of this rehearsal for a US tour that never happened. 'Let's pretend we're married' was brought out for the first time since the Purple rain tour but dropped by the time the Lovesexy shows came about. The medley that starts with 'What's my name' is pretty good; it's not easy to tell if it was just a jam or something that had been planned though. 'What's my name' is not the same song as that which was released on the Crystal ball set.
