2007 UK reissue of this seven track album from the unique Soul/Pop vocalist best known for her hit 'Lovin' You'.. This posthumous album was originally released in 1980, the year after her death at the age of 31, and saw the musicians with whom she collaborated with on her debut solo album add their musical embellishment to Minnie's recordings after her death. Includes additional vocals from R&B/Pop vocalists Roberta Flack and Peabo Bryson plus a guest appearance from Stevie Wonder, who adds a wonderful harmonica solo to 'Give Me Time'. Features 'Here We Go', 'I'm In Love Again' and 'You Take My Breath Away'. EMI.
This Is Literally Unbelievable!!!!

"I am so very happy this collection of songs has finally been made available for domestic release. When many in the recording industry made a huge deal of the Natalie/Nat King Cole recording of "Unforgettable" in 1991, I, although happy it was successful,was not impressed.
No, the record was great. The reason I wasn't impressed is for all the hoopla made over the record, the techinology used for it had been used 11 years earlier on this album.
This album was built around Minnies' vocals recorded in 1978 with the great Leonard Caston. The instrumentation from those sessions was rerecorded, but Minnie's vocals were retained & paired with many guest artists. The result is new instrumentation and several duets w/Minnie created and released posthumously in 1980.
What a beautiful tribute this work is to Minnie and her legacy. This album has only 7 songs(the perfect number), but it is well worth it. I will always have a place in my heart for this Perfect Angel."
Iam thrilled this is finally on CD

"Minnie Riperton has always been my favorite singer of all time. I can remember listening to my aunt Cookie's love lives forever album in her basement for hours, I was about 8yrs old. I still have the album because someone told me I could convert it to CD.
I just happened to go on Amazon on friday and typed in Minnie Ripperton, and what do I see it's on CD. I was thrilled, the UPS guy just dropped it off. I went running to the CD player. This is a joy for me!!! I love her music so much it's about time this album was released on CD.
What can you say about Minnie, that voice so pure and so beautiful words can't even explain. Thank god! she was put on this earth for a short time but, at least she came and gave us this beautiful music that we can listen to forever. I know I will."
