Purple Snow


1984. An important year for me. I was eleven years old and I bought Purple Rain by Prince & The Revolution. Wow, I loved that album. Well I still love Purple Rain. Nine great songs. It is one of the greatest albums in the Minneapolis sound. From Purple Rain I then went on to discover The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Sly & The Family Stone, Marvin Gaye and other great artists. I have seen Prince three times – 1987, 1988 and 2011. All three concerts where amazing. I missed his hard rock show in Stockholm this year though since I’m abroad.

Numero Group has just released Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound, a great collection of late 70s early 80s sounds from Minneapolis. Soul and R&B with a new wave synth-vibe. It’s lovely! I highly reccommend this album.
