Much has been said about our massive 050 Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound collection, but creeping up behind that thunderhead is another front. Assigned the supplementary but by no means diminutive 0501⁄2 catalog number, 1514 Oliver Avenue (Basement) is an extraordinary full-length, subterranean set from Mind & Matter (best known as Jimmy Jam Harris’ first band), recently restored and carefully prepared for deployment on LP and CD. That’s Jam himself, front and center, looking basically like he doesn’t even have a Roland SH1000 holding down his teenage frame.
