Shame he had to die so young, like all the other musical greats!

These songs delve into your soul and make you stop and think about life. Donny Hathaway was a super musician who was a proper soul singer but he drew on influences from different genres, such as ragtime and classical, and this makes for a varied collection of songs and it makes the albums a joy to listen to. It is hard to get bored listening, as non of the songs are 'samey' and if you enjoy good soul music, you'll enjoy this.

Because he died young he is pretty underrated, so if you do not know much about him, this album series would be a great place to start, as it includes 5 albums including the Fabulous Extension of a Man, and best of all it's good value for money, where else can you buy five albums for under £10?

I bought this as a present for my mother and she has not stopped playing it, virtually after listening to the first album he became her favourite artist, she even went out on a limb and said that he was better than Stevie wonder!

Five albums for £14... bargain! Having bought 'A song for you, live' I was looking to extend my Donny Hathaway collection but could not decide which album to buy next. I'm so glad I waited. I could have spent 5 times this amount but my patience (or indecision) was rewarded. Each and every album in this collection is superb.

I am a massive fan of Donny Hathaway. He was a great singer and absolute master at the keyboard. he could have been one of the biggest R&B stars but he died so young in 1979. To get all five albums in one compilation is an absolute steal!! I had all these albums in vinyl a long time ago but to now get them in CD quality is fantastic. I have ripped them on to my phone so I can enjoy them on the move. There are so many great songs on the album but my favourites are Magnificent sanctuary band, The Ghetto, Little girl and Young gifted and black. If you love R&B you will love it!!

Think my husband has worn this cd out already played and played and played. Wonderful but then it would be, it's sonny Hathaway after all. Just booked tickets to see Layla Hathaway, check her music out! Like father like daughter amazing.

I caught up on the first album recently after many years, through the series here and have been a believer since the, it is argued, greatest, live album of all time. Well, let's not argue, up there, the collection is here is sensational and the value extraordinary.

A great collection and must for soul lovers.
I think that I would have preferred that the box had one more studio album than 2 live albums

An artist sadly missed today. An artist with real soul. All albums capture most of his hits, which you can only be categorised as real masterpieces - superb.
