AllMusic Review by

This posthumously released album features an outstanding cast of veterans who pay tribute to the remarkable vocalist Minnie Riperton. While Riperton's vocals were recorded during the year of 1978, all the other vocals were recorded in the spring of 1980. The hit from this album was "Here We Go," featuring Peabo Bryson's far-reaching tenor. The single peaked at 14 on the Billboard R&B charts in as many weeks. Even though most of the selections are set in a midtempo rhythm, they have a calming effect. The second release was "Give Me Time." Not as successful as its predecessor, it still has the untarnished texture for which Riperton's vocals were known.
