A Xmas Eve treat for all Soul lovers... a little tribute to the huge voice that is Minnie Riperton! Minnie started her career as a backing singer on the legendary Chess Records, had some early acclaim as a vocalist with the psychedelic Rock/Soul group Rotary Connection then having huge solo success throughout the 70's before her passing in 1979.
Here's my selection of favourites including the sublime Simple Things, , arguably her goodbye song after her diagnosis -Memory Lane, Love Hurts, of course... Loving You and ends with a great track from her very early days.
The gangs all here over the festive period....have a great Xmas Mixtapers!
