Top Customer Reviews
with both great joy and awe of his god-given gifts
as well as sadness over how his career bascially went
under the radar while he was alive and of course,
how his life ended so tragically!
I often think about how pleasantly surprised he would
have been to see his work have such an influence on a
whole generation of younger talents who were but embryos
when he was doing his thing all those years ago!
I also imagine him being pleased by his daughter
Layla and her success!
This was his best and most cohesive studio album
and it has some great gems on it..my faves are:
"Je Vouz Aime Vouz (That Means I Love You)", "Misty",
"Sugar Lee" and "Thank You Master For My Soul"
all which kill me in their own unique ways!
Of course, I prefer the live versions of "The Ghetto"
and "Young, Gifted & Black" to the ones on here.
Donny was one of the few artists who could create
something live that was better than what he did
in the studio!
Donny Hathaway is the invisible every man of
R&B / Jazz / Soul with a strong gospel-inflection,
and his influence, both vocal and instrumental-wise is eternal!
This entire album is exquisitely excellent, there's not one bad track but there are some that stand out to me:
Voices Inside (Everything is Everything) - great musical production!! 10/10
Je Vous Aime (I Love You) - so soulful, such a beautiful love song. 10/10
Misty - excellent remake 10/10
Tryin Times - timeless song expressing commentary about what was going on then but also speaks to what is going on in today's times 10/10
Thank You Master For My Soul - excellent soulful gospel song that doesn't overpower 10/10
The Ghetto - although I prefer the live versions of this song, it's pretty damn close to a masterpiece & just as powerful as any song on Marvin Gaye's 'What's Goin On' 10/10
To Be Young, Gifted & Black - one of my favorite Donny tracks, picks up my spirits every single time I hear it 100/10
A Dream - words can't suffice for how much I love this song - the arrangement and Donny's phrasing throughout...make this song heaven for me. 100/10

I purchased this CD for one song and of course the other songs grew on me. Donny Hathaway was such a gifted singer.Published 7 months ago by Music Lady
