First frost is fast approaching (December 3rd), and regardless of how much we talk about Purple Snow, even the most astute Numerophile has essentially bugged when handed this tome. To prepare potential Snow Men and Snow Angels for the approaching blizzard, we wanted to break Purple Snow down into its core components.

Vinyl shoppers, this is what you get: 

The healthy seven-pound bundle of joy pictured above:

-Four (4) LPs, each encased in their own unique replica sleeve, each honoring a different Minneapolis recording studio. Q: “Is that real gold foil on the Creation sleeve?” A: yes.

-One hundred and eight (108) pages of colorful photography and insightful text to help even the most knowledgeable Twin Citizen gain a better understanding of the region’s music scene.

-Thirty thousand (30,000) words, only three of which are “MC Skat Cat.”

-One (1) attractive slipcase to house all of the madness. ”

Compact Disc (CD) shoppers, this is what you get:

The three-pound brick pictured stage left.

-Two (2) compact discs, stuffed to the brim with Minneapolis Sounds (note: CD and LP versions share identical track lists).

-Thirty two (32) tracks to be exact, fourteen (14) of which are previously unreleased. This includes works by Andre Cymone, Flyte Tyme, Sue Ann Carwell, Alexander O’Neal… Good Stuff!

-One hundred and forty four (144) pages of prose, housed in cloth-bound hardcover, with a dozen or so extra photos not featured in the LP version.

Pre-Order either CD or LP formats now to ensure you receive: 

-Seven (7) inches of St. Paul electro rap courtesy of David “T.C.” Ellis in the form of “Twin Cities Rapp,” a rhyming travel brochure for those interested in visiting the Minneapolis Sound, circa 1985 (limited to the first 500 orders.)

Not always easy to follow, but this was included in the 2013 cd subscription, right?
