The Minneapolis Sound for One Small Sound!

In honor of the creator of this blog visiting my temporary residence, I would like to present the official Minneapolis Welcoming Committee! There have been significant bands and artists that call the 612 home since THE PURPLE ONE, but, really...Prince and his roster of minions is what people remember (unless they also remember Husker Du & the Replacements). The Minneapolis Sound:

1. Apollonia 6 - She starred in Purple Rain and never looked back. BTW, I can't find an mp3 of this song anywhere!

2. Morris Day & the Time - The foil in Purple Rain

3. Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Flyte Tyme) - They played with Morris Day and eventually got into producing - Janet Jackson, Robert Palmer, Human League and so on...and on. It would be hard to find a more successful production team out there.

4. Sheila E - These two songs blew me away when I was a kid.

A Love Bizarre:

Minneapolis loves their music and I don't think it will ever get better than this window in time.
