DOCUMENTARY: THE MINNEAPOLIS SOUND
The Minneapolis Sound is Emily Goldberg's first person journey through the vibrant Minneapolis music scene of the 80s, a decade that was filled with musical icons from the Minnesota city. Prince, Morris Day and the Time, Hüsker Dü, The Jets, Ipso Facto, and The Replacements are just a few featured in The Minneapolis Sound. The pervading question is how Minneapolis shaped them and what exactly is “The Minneapolis Sound”. The documentary is filled with early footage of performances and interviews with groups, and how their careers developed from there.
30 years later, PBS sat down with creator Emily Goldberg, back to share some commentary on the experience and how these icons were back then.
