Lewis Connection


With insurance money from a recently overturned Buick Century, brothers Andre and Pierre Lewis went on a recording tear through the Twin Cities in 1978, cutting a half-dozen songs in as many studios. Combining the astrosexuality of Parliament with the sophisticated flammability of Earth, Wind & Fire, the Lewis Connection’s misspelled debut captures the Minneapolis Sound’s founding fathers—Prince among them—at the paradigm-shifting confluence of funk, jazz, and pop for which the Land of 10,000 Lakes is famed.
