Chaos and Disorder is the eighteenth studio album by Prince (his stage name at that time being the love symbol he created). The album reached #26 in the US[8] and #14 in the UK,[9] and is now out of print in America and the UK. Prince refused to promote the album, still engaged in his fight against his Warner Bros. contract, and the album was released simply to fulfill his contract obligations. The single, "Dinner with Delores", was released in the UK only and despite the lowkey promotion, became a Top 40 hit.
