This collection gives a good overview of some of the most notable tracks
by Donny Hathaway, the classy soul singer / pianist who died tragically
young in 1979. It includes a number of well-known songs which Hathaway
handles in his own distinctive style, as well as several hit duets with
Roberta Flack, whose musical style has much in common with that of
Hathaway. Most of the songs are slow ballads; for the most part this isn't
dance music but rather thoughtful and heartfelt true 'soul' music. However,
it's a pity about the dreary cover design and the lack of any biographical
details or musician credits, which would have enhanced an otherwise good

5.0 out of 5 stars What a voice, what music. 5 Aug 2007
By David R. Bishop VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Donny Hathaway is little known to the general public, beyond a duet partner of Roberta Flack. They had several hits together, included here. His solo work should be much better known. It is drenched in class and soul. If you like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, then I rate this guy right up there with them.

Sometimes the emotion that the music evokes is almost too real and painful. The first track 'A Song For You' sets the pace for much of the album. It opens with beautiful tinkling piano, then you just know that something very special is going to happen. The song has been recordrd by The Carpenters and Natalie Cole as well as others, but to my ears, this is the definitive version.

This album is a good introduction to one of the finest and most talented soul singers. I warn you that you might want more.

I think we lost a pure talant, he had a lot more to give, but died young, needed more help, with his condition, but a true master of his talant..

4.0 out of 5 stars Top notch vocals 24 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I've only just really discovered the vocal talents of the late great Donny Hathaway even though I bought his single Back Together when it first came out in 1980. All I can say is that why on earth did I wait so long to listen to the one of the great soul voices of our time. Apart from Mr Vandross, this man has to be heard.
