Ice Cream Castle is a 1984 album by The Time. Similar to their previous two albums, this album consists of six tracks in the funk-pop or ballad genre and it was produced and arranged by Prince as "The Starr ★ Company".
The album's two biggest hits, "Jungle Love" and "The Bird", were featured in the film Purple Rain and this, along with Day's performance in the movie, catapulted the album up the charts and to a crossover audience. Unfortunately, the band didn't have time to enjoy the success, as they had disbanded by the time the movie was released.
Ice Cream Castle produced three singles: "Ice Cream Castles", "Jungle Love", and "The Bird".
"The men from Minneapolis form the tightest funk outfit I've heard for ages," marveled Fred Dellar in Hi-Fi News & Record Review, "the heat generated on 'Jungle Love' being awesome. 'The Bird' is only fractionally less hot and 'If the Kid Can't Make You Come' an amiable street-trot, albeit a lascivious one. And if 'Chili Sauce' acts purely as a playlet in which Day can indulge in a kind of on-vinyl test for some forthcoming blue movie, then even this can be forgiven in view of The Time's other assets."
