The Local Show: Funk & Soul Edition

Listen The Local Show for September 16, 2012

Sep 16, 2012 Join Minnesota Public Radio's David Campbell as he explores the Twin Cities local music scene, both past and present. Tune in to hear rare songs, live tracks, and in-studio performances.


Local record label Secret Stash is releasing a new compilation: Twin Cities Funk and Soul - Lost R&B Grooves From Minneapolis/St. Paul 1964-1979. Featuring some of the most pivotal musicians of the metroplex, we decided to honor them -- albeit a little late -- and dedicate a whole Local Show to rare funk and soul tunes.

In the first hour, Eric Foss and Will Gilbert of Secret Stash will curate the playlist and tell us about the compilation and how it all got started. In the second hour, the reunited Valdons will be joined by a backing band called the Twin Cities Funk and Soul All-Stars, and they'll perform three tunes in The Current studios for us.

The rest of the show: all funk and soul from the likes of Prophets Of Peace, James Bonner, Wanda Davis, Willie and The Bumblebees, Rufus Lumley and so many others.

The release party for the compilation will be September 22 at the Cedar Cultural Center. Many of the players on the record will be in attendance to perform.
