Great albums…

18 May

What’s going on, folks?

Here’s a killer album that you should definitely lay your hands on.  It has been dug and sampled to death but it stands alone as a brilliant recording.

Released in 1974, the album spawned three singles (“Reasons”, “Seeing You This Way”, “Lovin’ You”).  With heavy influence by Stevie Wonder (two songs written plus instrumentation under the name El Toro Negro), the album is hardly “edgy” or “progressive”.  Yet, it is exceptionally well recorded and brilliantly written.  Most impressive though is Minnie’s vocal range and expressive delivery.

Unfortunately, Minnie Riperton died of cancer in 1979 at just 32 years of age.
