GET THIS ALBUM IMMEDIATELY!
it got heavy rotation from my mother and her freinds!
The musical marriage of Donny Hathaway & Roberta Flack
was just musical perfection!
Both were prodigious talents vocal-wise and
in their fluency as instrumentalists!
There are a few covers on here..the only one I
could've done without was their rendition of Aretha's
classic "Baby, I Love You" because they brought
absolutely nothing to it.
But make no errors!
They absolutely put their foot in "I Who Have Nothing"
with it's deep bluesy longing that just captures the
pathos perfectly of wanting someone who doesn't want
you as much as you want them! (Woo!--Timeless!)
Donny Hathaway's rendition of "For All We Know" has
become the stuff of legend, and quite a few people
actually think that he was the originator
of this standard!
Now that's when you know that an artist has put
their mark on a song!...When everybody just assumes
that their rendition is the definitive one!
(Kinda like Luther and "A House Is Not A Home"
Donny's voice was like buttah!
That man was just so brilliant that it hurts!
I also like what he and Roberta did on
"You've Lost That Loving Feeling"..
a kind of early 70's R&B / Jazz experiment that
opened it up more.
But now, nobody can top the Righteous Brothers version!
Donny & Roberta's version of "You've Got A Freind"
has also become one of legend!--(Just wonderful!Read more ›
"I (Who Have Nothing)" starts the CD off with a mournful, soulful plea. "Be Real Black for Me" is a simple request from one lover to another: Don't change; be yourself for me. Gotta love the tenderness of Hathaway's solo on "For All We Know." "Where Is the Love?" All over this beautiful album!
But the jewel of this collaboration has to be the quirky addition of "Come, Ye Disconsolate," a hymn thats lyrics were written in 1816 by Thomas Moore. This song almost brought tears to my eyes! Flack and Hathaway's treatment of this standard hymn takes one to the altar and leaves you kneeling, heart wrenched and soul stirred! I've played this one over and over.
A thoroughly enjoyable collection of duets by two truly soulful artists.
