Each week in March, the Purple Current Time Machine goes to a different year to pick the best of Prince's output. Vote and tune into the Purple Hour at noon on Friday. (MPR Graphic)

Every Friday in March our Purple Hour (12pm and 7pm CST) will be turning into a Purple Current Time Machine. We will be taking a look at Prince's musical output for a specific year, (even if it was released significantly later) and you will be voting on the top tracks for that year. This means that Prince's output as a ghostwriter, producer, and collaborator are all fair game.

Prince was prolific in 1992. Coming off of the work of the Graffiti Bridge movie and soundtrack, and a 1991 that was heavy on releases by other artists, 1992 brought us the Love Symbol album and some incredible work with other artists. Take a look at the top music Prince released, written or recorded in 1992!

Records, and released his first album, The Gold Experience, under his unpronounceable symbol.
