Paradise witrh a funky but romantic Adventure!
Alan Russo | Cambridge, MA USA | 05/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember 1975 like it was yesterday! even though I was 13 years old, I had a unique taste for popular R&B. I was into writers and music. People like Melissa Manchester, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Isley Brothers and the slightly offbeat Bette Midler!~ This LP was one of my favorite LP's of the time. Listening to every track as if they were all hit singles! There were few artists who could achieve that interest with me.
Adventures In Paradise was Minnie's second gold LP and the follow-up to her breakthrough, Perfect Angel. It had a more soulfull feel than Angel and faired better on the R&B charts. Inside My Love was the adult sensual follow-up single to Lovin' You. Although it was more in the vein of Sylvia's Pillow Talk, it was too adult for popular radio. It's also one of my favorite songs. Today you may find it on the Foxy Brown soundtrack. It was written by Riperton and her husband Dick Rudolph and Leon Ware. Leon wrote similar songs with Melissa Manchester and produced her and Marvin Gaye. The second single was Simple Things. An optimistic song which also showed her vocal range. The title track is also one of my favorites with it's funky jazzy Earth Wind & Fire hook. Baby This Love I Have could have also been a single as well as the another funky tune called When It Comes Down To It. Minnie could really get busy with material like this! She could also slow the pace with the romantic Alone In Brewster Bay.If you don't have anything from Minnie, this is the one to get! If you can't get enough, like me, go in this order.

Adventures in Paradise (and Love)

"In my opinion, this is Minnie's best album. She moved from the the jazz-folk-R&B style on "Perfect Angel" to a more soulful-funky-jazz-latin flavor on "Adventures in Paradise". This album is HOT and sexy. Her passion for love and life really shines on this album. On this album, Minnie shows us the different sides to love...with the ultra sexy "Inside My Love" and the funky "When It Comes Down to It", and the sad "Alone On Brewster Bay". While I LOVE her song writing, its her voice that moves me. Many of today's singer should follow her example."
Masterpiece - A Must Have

"Incredible album from 1975. One of the greatest female vocalists ever. All fans of Minnie know this is her greatest album. "Inside My Love" is a chill inducing sensual masterpiece. There will never be another vocalist like Minnie. So tragic she passed only 4 years after this release"
