The 1979 phantom album of the funk band The Lewis Connection, known for Prince's participation before his debut! Prince participation song "Got To Be Something Here" and the happiest and groovy instrumental funk "Dynamic Duo" in the album are now 7 inches for the first time !!

The first single cut from the only album by Minneapolis' local band, The Lewis Connection! It is famous for fans because that Prince participated, but it is a treasure among the treasures that only about 100 sheets were pressed at that time, and it is a powerful board that can be said to be the treasure of the rare groove world! Furthermore, it is the first time that he has participated in an album under the name of another person under the name of "Prince", and he joined this work at the same time when he was producing his first album in Minneapolis. Also, the recording time is 1978-79 (only the songs participating in Prince are around 1976), which is exactly one piece with high historical value as the originator of Minneapolis funk.As you can see from the fact that Sony Thompson later joined the New Power Generation, the session between the two well-known people is the best!"Got To Be Something Here", in which Prince participated on guitar and backing vocals, is a slow ballad based on a spacey synth.The sexy falsetto chorus of a young Prince (17-18 years old at the time) is so beautiful on Sony Thompson's tenor voice."Dynamic Duo" is the most euphoric fusion-style instrumental jazz-funk on the album.A groovy and light song reminiscent of Pleasure and Blackbirds, this is also a popular song!
