Got To Be Something Here by Andrea Swensson - Signed Copy
"We know how Prince shaped Minneapolis, claiming us as his own and bragging about our city to the world. But I wanted to know more about how Minneapolis shaped Prince: what was happening in the soul and funk community in the decades before he released his debut album? Where did the barriers for black artists originate, and how would Prince brazenly smash through them? I started digging, researching, reading, listening, asking questions, and listening some more, learning ugly truths about the city I love and deepening my appreciation of this funky, sweaty, sexy music. This book summarizes what I learned, and so much more. I hope you enjoy it."
