Stream: Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound (Listening Party TONIGHT)
After an epic buildup, the always amazing Numero Group are releasing their 4LP box-set of pre-Prince funk and soul from our fair city. The box set captures the groups that were the precursor to not only Prince and groups like the Time, but bands across the country. Listen below to a selection of the songs from the compilation, ranging from funky disco soul to silky smooth R&B ballads. It is a stunning collection that brings to an area of local music that for the most part has been until now been overlooked by the general public.
There is a local “release party” tonight (Thur, Dec. 5) at the Depot in Minneapolis. More info HERE.
