Review Text There are numerous collections out there, perhaps a dozen that cover the late and highly influential Minnie Riperton's career. The very best one out there is the double-disc set on the Right Stuff label called Petals: The Minnie Riperton Collection. This one on Stateside is easy to confuse given its similar title -- especially since they were released only ten months apart. But the two are not remotely similar in quality. Petals may cost more, but it's worth it: It is a standard bearer and covers Minnie Riperton's entire career with great sound and solid liner notes as well as reliable discographical information. It is also assembled with a great sense of aesthetics in terms of its sequencing. Fleurs is nothing more than a slapdash effort; its poor presentation and sound are designed to make a quick buck and nothing more. If the only cut you want is "Lovin' You," do yourself a big favor and score a legal download from digital retailers. ~ Thom Jurek
