Like most folk I was only ever familiar with Minnie Riperton through Lovin' You.
A couple of years ago, however, I bought Les Fleurs The Minnie Riperton Anthology in Bernandos Music Shop in Glasgow's Victoria Road which I think is no longer there.
Those, like me, who were expecting more of the same were in for a shock.
It is a mixture of rock 'n'soul and some fairly trippy songs as these two posts demonstrate.
I was put in mind to listen to and post from this when someone recently posted Inside My Love.
An interesting album and well worth a purchase.
Sadly, Minnie died from cancer in 1979 at the tragically young age of 31.
A unique talent.
