Also a fun note: many of these releases ended up out of print because they appeared on Prince's record label Paisley Park Records, and that was shut down in 1994 by Warner Bros. due to severe mismanagement from his managers Bob Cavallo, Joe Ruffalo and Steve Fargnoli[[note]]How {{egregious}}? They'd paid such exorbitant advances to signees (who were frequently signed behind Prince's back!) that Warner forced Prince to lend Paisley Park Studios to other bands in an attempt to recoup some of their losses[[/note]]. [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes Keep (mostly) Circulating The Tapes]] (you can go ahead and "lose" the ones for Vanity and Apollonia 6, for starters.) Also, keep in mind that this list is by no means complete: there are several projects that never saw any form of release outside of bootlegs (like The Rebels and M.C. Flash) and there are probably even more that we don't even know about, sitting in Prince's vault.

Day left the band after an argument with Prince in 1985, focusing on a solo career. The Time disbanded right then, with its remaining members being amalgamated into The Family, and Jam and Lewis going on to be famous {{Record Producer}}s, mostly for their work with Music/JanetJackson. Jerome Benton also starred as Prince's sidekick in ''Under the Cherry Moon'', and similarly managed to out-act Prince and be considered the one character reviewers liked. Jesse Johnson put out a solo album named ''Shockadelica'' in 1986, which drove Prince to write a song called "Shockadelica" since he felt an album with that cool a title needed a title song, but Johnson had neglected to write one.

* BreakupBreakout: People probably know Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis better for their decades as hitmaking producers and songwriters than as members of The Time.

Staples collaborated with Prince for a few years, contributing the song "Melody Cool" to the ''Graffiti Bridge'' soundtrack and having two solo albums, ''Time Waits For No One'' (1989) and ''The Voice'', co-written and produced by him. And that's... kind of it actually. Prince
was a [[PromotedFanboy a huge fan]] of Staples, and wanted to help her mount a comeback to the music industry, which he more or less succeeded at.

The Three O'Clock are a rarity among Paisley Park signings in that Prince neither discovered them (they'd already released three albums), mentored them (again, he was ''their'' fan) or created them from whole cloth. Sadly, ''Vermillion'' was a flop and didn't take off with either the band's existing college rock fanbase or the pop audience they were now trying to attract; They imploded on themselves shortly after its release. Frontman Michael Quercio eventually reformed the group in 2013.
