Romance 1600, released in 1985 on Prince's Paisley Park imprint, was precussionist Sheila . s follow up to her grammy-nominated debut album "The Glamorous Life". I really got into this album not only because of Ms. Escovedo's extrordinary drumming skills or her hypnotizing beauty, but because this album was loaded with that Minnesota funk/rock sound that her mentor (Prince) put on the map a few years earlier - and also on "The Glamorous Life". But on this album, the funk went a bit deeper. Romance 1600" gives you the impression of zooming uncontrollably down a rocky road with four loose wobbly wheels that are ready to detach at any moment.

The album cover found Escovedo and her band members sporting the attire of 17th century Europe, and the musicians were given such names as Dame Kelly, Benentino the Wizard, the Earl of Grey, and Sir Stephan. But once you get past the aristocratic imagery, Romance 1600 isn't much different from The Glamorous Life. Although Escovedo did most of the writing and producing herself, Prince's influence is strong throughout the album - "Bedtime Story," "Sister Fate," and other selections all have that distinctive Minneapolis vibe. The only track that Prince co-wrote and.
