    I listened to this record a lot way back when i was a dance student... always loved Minnie Riperton, but i just picked up this vinyl, and for the first time realized that this album is very guitar forward...

    when i was a teenager studying dance my jazz dance teacher (who i had a deep crush on, although at 17 i thought it was true love... she was 21... did not stop me at all, until she said, aww monte that's cute. - so instead my ballet teacher and i basically ran off, she, 25, ditched her husband and we moved to AZ. LOL - my daughter's mother) anyway, she used this record a lot - i was hooked on Minnie's voice, and didnt have the musical education to understand how friggin great this band is... every tune they're playing their hears out and really lush, wonderful arrangements, - the record just came in the mail today, i havent held a copy in my hands in a long time, and even though i've listened to many of the songs on youtube, i never put it together who the musicians were until i read the back of the album today... i mean this is damn near the songs in the key of life band... and it's glorious.

    If I remember right...Minnie requested Stevie to produce...He was exclusively Motown/Tamla so he had to do the pseudonym thing.

    You can hear his fingerprints all over it. Right down to Malcom Cecil and my old friend Bob.
