    28 years ago today she went forth by day to join the ancestors. For a too short time we enjoyed her five octave voice. Let's take a moment to remember this sista queen and the gift of music she shared with us in the time she was given.

    What a Beautiful SITE!

    Twenty eight years..........! (seems like yesterday)

    Sis RIVER YOU have taken ME wayy 'Back Down Memory Lane!'

    There is only one other Sister that I know of Who retained a 'natural' five octave voice reminiscent of the Great Minnie Ripperton.....Liz Lands from the Atlanta, Ga. area used to sing w/ Hamilton Bohannon back in the day.

    I had the pleasure of performing w/HER and hearing HER Beautiful Voice echo the Strength of Afrikan Queens from time immemorial. (Including Minnie!)

    (Now that YOUV'E got ME blabbering all over the place!)

    Sister RIVER thank YOU for this post.....YOU'LL never know the good YOUV'E done! I'VE bookmarked the site!

    ROARIN.................
