Minnie Ripperton

By 1975, the intimate arrangements of Minnie Riperton 1970 debut Come to My Garden had been filtered through 1974’s creative collaboration with Stevie Wonder, Perfect Angel. The result was the confident album Adventures in Paradise as best exemplified by ‘Inside My Love’. Full of double entendres that would have jarred in the lungs of Barry White, the song almost sounds delicate with Riperton on vocals, helped by some pioneering downtempo arrangements. This was a slow jam in 1975, nearly a decade before Midnight Star coined the phrase. Have a great weekend.
