Twinn Connexion was the moniker adopted by a set of identical twins from Helena, MT — Adam E. “Jay” Hopkins and his sibling Jerry Hopkins. That they had been performing together since quality college, and by enough time these were in senior high school they currently had their very own Television show in the neighborhood Helena region. After executing statewide to very much success, they ultimately migrated to NEW YORK where these were uncovered performing within a Greenwich Community coffeehouse with a Decca Information exec. The twins had been agreed upon to the label and designated to utilize maker Jerry Keller (who experienced popular of his personal in 1959 with “Right here Comes Summer time”). Keller and longtime generating/composing associate Dave Blume published tunes for the duo, that have been recorded with support from various users of the brand new York-based Carolyn Hester Coalition (sans Carolyn Hester). The twins made an appearance hand and hand within the cover of their self-titled album’s launch, wearing matching yellowish and white textured Nehru fits, with green ascots and tiepins using the sign “2x” (as this is 1968, it had been perfectly acceptable to surface in public in this manner). The complete recording — a psychedelic smooth pop deal with with fantastic plans, and mildly experimental details, like electrical sitar and harpsichord — is really as great as anything related out of this same period. The track “Foolin’ Around” made an appearance within the Melody Continues on Soft Rock and roll, Vol. 3, released by Chu Takahashi’s Japanese-based M&M (MMCD 1024), but Twinn Connexion itself is definitely, unfortunately, not available on Compact disc. LP copies control incredibly high prices from enthusiasts. Jay Hopkins passed on on Sept 6, 2001, at age group 60, in Manhattan, NY, of center failure. From the first ’70s to enough time of his loss of life, he worked like a metals investor for various businesses including Prudential and Merrill Lynch, where he was a vice chief executive. His sibling Jerry Hopkins continues to be residing in New York.
