A Place In Heaven is an unreleased track recorded on 27 March 1986 at Prince’s Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (two days after Love And Sex, on the same day as Movie Star and Witness 4 The Prosecution). Soon after, Lisa Coleman recorded lead vocals for the track (using Prince’s own as a guide).
Lisa Coleman’s vocal version of the track was included as the tenth track on a late April 1986 configuration of the Dream Factory album. It was then included as the eighteenth track (sixteenth song) on the 3 June 1986 configuration (segueing directly from Movie Star, and includes the final line of dialogue from that track in its opening bars) and as the twelfth track on the 18 July 1986 configuration. It was dropped, however, when the Revolution disbanded and the project evolved into the Crystal Ball triple LP, which itself was pared down to become Sign O’ The Times.
A segue, titled Nevaeh Ni Ecalp A (“A Place In Heaven” spelled backwards), utilizing Lisa’s vocal version of the song, was created in late April 1985 at Prince’s Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota and was included as such as the eleventh track on the 3 June 1986 configuration of Dream Factory.
The segue was also included, this time as an uncredited segue, between the first and second tracks, Visions and Dream Factory, on the 18 July 1986 configuration.
At a later date a skit featuring Wendy and Lisa being carded at a club was recorded for it. A sampled of ‘Witness!’ (taken from Witness 4 The Prosecution), was also added, moving into a spoken intro by Prince seemingly introducing Dream Factory.
