Minnie Riperton 
Come to my Garden
Janus JXS 7011 - reissue
Come to My Garden was Riperton's debut album, hot 
on the heels of her tenure in Rotary Connection, producer, arranger, conductor, songwriter Charles Stepney (and 70s house producer for Chess / Argo Records) recorded this album originally for the GRT label with lush orchestration 
and a jazzy soft-pop feel reminiscent of contemporary Roberta Flack. The initial release was unsuccessful, but re-issued in 1973, partially to cash in on her Capitol Records Smash, Perfect Angel by Janus Records. While different from that album, it is now considered to be a classic, and contains many enduring, if woefully unknown classics. Musicians performing on the album include Ramsey Lewis, Phil Upchurch, Maurice White (Earth, Wind & Fire), as well as Stepney.
