Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #127

January 11, 2017

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far. The album this week is Perfect Angel by Minnie Ripperton.

Minnie’s second studio album was released in 1974 on Epic Records. It contains her most arguably greatest hit Lovin’ You”, originally a lullaby written for her daughter Maya. The album was co-produced by Minnie’s husband, Richard Rudolph and Stevie Wonder (under the alias of El Toro Negro), whose instrumentals and lyrical flair features in some of the tracks. Perfect Angel, a wonderfully mesmerising journey through soul, mountainous vocal ranges and skilled artistry. Truly ethereal.
