Biography

Donny Hathaway was one of the brightest new voices in soul music at the dawn of the '70s, possessed of a smooth, gospel-inflected romantic croon that was also at home on fiery protest material. Hathaway achieved his greatest commercial success as Roberta Flack's duet partner of choice, but sadly he's equally remembered for the tragic circumstances of his death -- an apparent ...

Editorial Reviews

Late, great soul singer Donny Hathaway - who died in an apparent suicide in 1979 at age 33 - began his short but stellar career arranging, writing, producing, and playing keyboards for such legends as Aretha Franklin and Curtis Mayfield. Ultimately best known for his sublime duets with Roberta Flack, including the #1 R&B singles "The Closer I Get To You" and "Where Is The Love" (the 1972 GRAMMY -winner for Best Pop Duo/Group), he also scored with solo hits like 1970's "The Ghetto-Part 1." Hathaway's two classic live albums, Live and In Performance , have, for decades, only been available as imports. This historic new collection pulls favorites from both, and also presents 7 previously unreleased live rarities from other sources.

Customer Reviews

This is one of the greatest soul singer's that ever lived.

Donny had a special way of really communicating what he felt through song(something that music today is sorely lacking in).

Most of us who love soul music know the difference between singing and sanging.

Donny Hathaway is the pinnacle of the soul artist. He wrote, arranged, whaled on the keyboard, and sang definitive interpretations of so many songs. *Any* unreleased material seeing the light of day is cause for celebration and a major event. Yet, this release, while containing outstanding music worthy of hearing, could have and should have been so much more.
Donny Hathaway "Live" is one of the greatest live albums ever made and one of my desert island discs. I own about 1200 CDs and only carry around 24 in a wallet at one time. Donny Hathaway "Live" is a permanent resident in that wallet along with Coltrane's "A Love supreme." Unfortunately, "Live" is only available as a pricey import right now. In the liner notes to "These Songs", David Nathan writes, "fate, destiny, or the ups and downs of the biz meant the reissues never happened" when explaining why "Live" was not released domestically on CD. "These Songs" is a compilation that has some of the highlights from the original "Live" album and the posthumous "In Performance", especially "What's Going On", "You've Got a Friend", and "The Ghetto". There's much classic material missing, however. Donny's cover of "Jealous Guy" isn't here, one of my favorite tracks on that album. Willie Weeks' classic bass solo on "Voices Inside" , which shows him as an extension of Motown's James Jamerson, is also absent. From "In Performance", the live version of "Young, Gifted, and Black" is a major omission. I think those new to Donny Hathaway would have benefitted from a rerelease of "Live" with some of the unreleased material on this compilation as bonus tracks. I think collectors would have preferred a live two disc compilation with all of the available live sides or even better [please, Rhino please!

Most of us who love soul music know the difference between singing and sanging. And those familiar with Donny Hathaway know he did the latter. The brotha had one of the most immensely talented voices in music history. Donny's singing here is an inspiring uplifting lesson in vocal artistry. While I really enjoyed each selection, I found A Song For You to be the real gem. If you're tired of the overhyped, overproduced, media images being thrust in our faces today and want some real music....rush out and get this CD.

A legend who left this world too soon. Thank goodness his live recordings are being released so that those who love real musical genius & talent can somehow feel that we are there while Donny serenades us.

If you have a Donny collection, then some of the songs you already know like: Flying Easy, Someday We'll All Be Free and You've Got A Friend but treats are his covers of Superwoman & Yesterday (and an interview at the end of the disc).

I'd highly recommend this disc if you are a serious fan looking to add to your collection AND if you are merely curious about Donny Hathaway, this is a good collection of his songs to begin to familiarize yourself with his music.

Like everybody else, I agree this is one of the best albums ever released. I have the other live albums so I was really looking forward to the unreleased material. I was not disapointed. He put so much soul into "Yesterday" that I dont remember what the Beetles version sounds like. "He aint heavy, He's my brother" is sung with so much feeling, it was just amazing.
This is a must have. I suggest you strongly get the other live CD's to get some of the other jams left off this CD. Trust me, if you love music its worth it.

YES, this is the singer that contestant Elliott mentioned in such love and respect on the show. YES, you can get the best introduction to Donny by buying this live album and the Greatest Hits compilation that is the other best-selling Donny Hathaway album.

He has inspired many, and I envy you that you can now discover him through having heard his name on television.

There really are no words that can adequately express the genius of this album. I adore the music of many different artists, but there has never been a voice like Donny Hathaway's. This collection of live pieces is an absolute masterpiece; every note is perfection. "Superwoman" is breathtaking, and "You've Got a Friend" makes you feel that you really have. It literally hurts my heart that Donny is not recognized by the world at large - but, to me, he is the GREATEST SOUL SINGER WHO EVER LIVED. This album is a must-have!!

If you love great singing, just buy this CD. You will be gratefull you did. Need I say more. OK I will. I'm a singer and have several hundred CDs from all singers from all styles from Luther, Stevie, Aretha, Chaka, to Bocelli and Pavoroti. This is my favorite. I can listen to this guy all day long. I haven't taken this out of my car stereo for weeks. Great rich smooth voice and sings with more love and soul than anyone else. And you really capture this on this live recording. In a time when very few artists can sing at all this is as good as it gets. Tell your kids to throw out their Usher and Maxwell and all these pale comparisons and listen to how it's supposed to be done. True combination of talent, musicality, vocal tone, and feeling. The band totally grooves together and his piano playing is very musical with a lot of subtle nuances,just like his singing. Do I need to say more. Just buy it. There is not one song on here that is not better than 90% of the vocal recordings out there. It is a huge loss and tragedy that we lost Donny way way too soon. He only has a handfull of albums. Extensions of a Man is a must have as well. Although you can't go wrong with any of his recordings. As a singer he has been an inspiration and an example of what it means to really sing.
