Liner Notes
THE TWIN CITIES OF MINNEAPOLIS & ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA HAVE LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED AS GREAT MUSIC TOWNS. FROM THE ANDREWS SISTERS, TO BOB DYLAN, THE REPLACEMENTS, AND SOUL ASYLUM, THE AREA HAS PRODUCED MORE THAN ITS SHARE OF INFLUENTIAL ARTISTS. IN 1979, PRINCE’S SELF-TITLED SOPHOMORE RELEASE DREW ATTENTION THE WORLD OVER TO THE TWIN CITIES. SOON “THE MINNEAPOLIS SOUND” SPREAD AS OTHER ARTISTS FROM THE AREA BEGAN TO BUILD ON THE FOUNDATION LAID BY THE PURPLE ONE. FOR MOST, THIS IS THE GENESIS OF FUNK AND SOUL FROM THE LAND OF 10,000 LAKES. HOWEVER, THE TWIN CITIES HAS A RICH R&B HISTORY DATING BACK DECADES BEFORE PRINCE’S RISE TO FAME. TWIN CITIES FUNK AND SOUL: LOST R&B GROOVES FROM MINNEAPOLIS/SAINT PAUL 1964-1979 IS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND 21 TRACK COMPILATION UNCOVERING AND DOCUMENTING THIS LARGELY FORGOTTEN MUSIC.
