HASH(0x8d51815c) out of 5 stars "...Take It From Me...Someday We'll All Be Free..." 13 July 2010
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD

Tracks 3 to 12 are his 5th album (4th studio) "Extension Of A Man" released July 1973 in the USA on Atco SD-7029 and 1973 in the UK on Atlantic K 40487
Tracks 13 to 17 are Previously Unreleased - "Jealous Guy (Studio Version)". "No Other One But You [1974 Demo]", "The Essence Of Destiny [1974 Demo]", "Going Down [1974 Demo] and "Make It On Your Own [1975 Demo]"

Disc 3 (78:15 minutes)
Track 1 is "This Christmas", a single-only release from November 1970 in the USA on Atco 45-6799 (see Track 4)
Track 2 is "Little Ghetto Boy", title track from the album "Come Back Charleston Blue" - a USA Soundtrack released July 1972 on Atco SD-7010
Track 3 is "A Dream", a previously unreleased bonus track on the "Everything Is Everything" CD reissue from 1995
Track 4 is "Be There", non-album B-side to "This Christmas" (see Track 1)
Track 5 is "Lord Help Me", a bonus track on the "Extension Of A Man" CD reissue from 1993
Track 6 is "You Were Meant For Me" is from "A Donny Hathaway Collection" from 1990 on Atlantic
Track 7 is "What A Woman Really Wants", a previously unreleased track on the 2006 CD compilation "Atlantic Unearthed: Soul Brothers" (recorded January 1973)
Tracks 8 to 15 are his 3rd album "Donny Hathaway Live" released March 1972 in the USA on Atco SD 33-386 and Atlantic K 40369 in the UK

Disc 4 (77:35 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 5 are 5 of the 6 tracks from the 1980 posthumously released live album "In Performance" on Atlantic
Tracks 6 to 11 are the 6 previously unreleased live tracks that were featured on the 14-track posthumous CD compilation "These Songs For You, Live!" issued by Atlantic/Rhino in 2004.
Tracks 12 and 13 are "Nu-Po" and "Love, Love, Love" - two previously unreleased live tracks recorded June 1973 in New York

As you can see from the details above, there are 7 previously unreleased tracks on this box set - 5 demos tagged onto the end of Disc 2 and 2 Live Tracks at the end of Disc 4. The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the "Robert Flack & Donny Hathaway" album from 1972 is entirely absent and only one track appears from the 1972 "Come Back Charleston Blue" soundtrack, but that's available as a separate Rhino Remaster from 2007 should you want it (see my review).

Niggles - although new and shrink-wrapped, my copy arrived with one of its plastic clip teeth rattling around in the cheap cardboard digi box. But that's nothing to the hugely underwhelming booklet, which is entirely in French and is next to useless. Its paltry 16 pages do have album sleeves and 7" singles pictured, but little else (4 of those pages are taken up with barely legible track listings for God's sake!). There is at least a nice touch beneath the see-through CD trays where 4 different label variations are reproduced - including the rare US Quadraphonic Version of "Extension Of A Man". But overall - for such a stellar artist - this is yet another shoddy and cheap set of packaging from Rhino - added to a worryingly growing list of them. The demos are ok, but not great - the best probably being "Make It On Your Own" from 1975. And why oh why wasn't this given a British or American release?

But the really good news, however, is the SOUND. There is a logo on the rear of the box which says HIGH QUALITY MASTERING and its been done by someone called ISAAK JASMIN. Comparing the sound to the 1993 Rhino discs, these 2010 versions are clearer and certainly more `present' than before. At times this ups the hiss levels inherent on the master tapes, but not to a point where it becomes overbearing. Typical would be "Take A Love Song" which opens Disc 2 - the old version was lacklustre, even dull - now it's huge and alive as the girls and strings crescendo. The live "In The Ghetto" is astonishing - a gig I would gladly have given a part of my anatomy to attend.

I've always adored the "Extension Of A Man" LP from 1973 and the opening track "I Love The Lord, He Heard My Cry (Parts I & II)" with its strings, clarinets and oboes is now GLORIOUS. That then segues into the box set's title song - the truly beautiful "Someday We'll All Be Free" (lyrics above) - and I'm in floods of tears! The two instrumentals on the album are huge too - the funky wah-wah guitars and keyboards of "Valdez In The Country" and the monstrous bass line of Willie Weeks in "The Slums". Very cool stuff...

So to sum up - there is an improved sound quality for die-hard fans to enjoy, however, newcomers might be better off with the 5CD mini box "Original Album Series" which is cheaper and offers more.

Donny Hathaway folks. Recommended in any language. But docked a star for a less-than-stellar presentation of this beautiful man's heartfelt musical legacy...

HASH(0x8d8b4c78) out of 5 stars Almost, but ever-so-slightly incomplete...yet stellar! 14 April 2010
By R. Maurer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As an eagle-eyed viewer can read from the above review that contains the complete tracklisting of this excellent boxed set, you will see that there is indeed ONE track missing from "In Performance", and therefore the description that says the album is "complete" is erroneous.

The original "In Performance" version of "Nu-Po" is nowhere to be found on this set.

It is included as an unreleased bonus track as a different performance, but the one we've lived with since 1980 is not included here.

Neither is the "Monitor Mix" of "Love Love Love" that was included on a compilation titled "You Better Believe It".

And there really should've been a Disc 5 with Donny's duets with Roberta Flack.

Otherwise...this is indeed a STELLAR boxed set for a damn near forgotten legend.

HASH(0x8ea9c68c) out of 5 stars Divinely astonishing! 20 Jan. 2011
By R. Lapine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Donny Hathaway fans have been waiting for something like this since Donny was here. I just finished listening to 3 of the CD's and I am in tears. Being a soul music devotee since the 60's, I have always had a sneaking suspicion that this divine artist is the greatest soul-singer/keyboardist/writer/arranger of all time. With deep bows to the other members of the holy trinity ... Stevie and Marvin, Donny ascends above them. Of this I am now certain and listening to this collection seals the deal in my heart and mind. It is evidence how Stevie borrowed much from Donny Hathaway.

As for remastering, this is the greatest remastering job I have ever heard and I have thousands of remastered classics in my collection. Listening to these newly mastered tracks is akin to watching your favorite program in HD for the very first time. The sound is stunningly warm and the separation of instruments and voices in amazing - this is as good a job as the recent Beatles remasters in my opinion. Mainly, Donny sounds like he is right by your ear and he probably is in some form. I was already blown away by 2 of the CD's when I finally got to the Extension of A Man tracks - get ready for ascension Donny fans and those of you that should be ....wow, is this the greatest soul album of all time? If not then its a close second to What's Going On perhaps ... but after today, I have my doubts about that ranking.

Anyway, the packaging is not much and there is a lot of text in French but the price is amazingly low for a Holy Grail and spiritual lodestone such as this. So make the purchase and heal thyself brothers and sisters!

HASH(0x8d85c3c0) out of 5 stars ~"I Believe In My Soul"~Donny is awesome! 24 Jan. 2014
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Never in my lifetime experienced a male singer on the esteemed phenomenal level of Donny Hathaway, sadly incredibly great singer was off this music lovers radar in the 70's & cannot explain why, loved those glorious duets with Roberta Flack which should have sparked looking in to solo projects back at that time, maybe entering full time University at the time played a hand but listening now to amazing musical treasure "Someday We'll All Be Free" so incredibly happy to catch up with the voice of a lifetime all these years later, this bad cat plays the ivories like no other plus wrote one classic after another. Any serious music lover be wise and grab this great musical treasure before price soars to outer limits and guaranteed this priceless collection is that great, won't go in to all the delicious details as this awe struck review of a sterling talent gone too soon would easily turn in to a hard-back book. Each disc filled with stellar performances so rare any lover of great singers & phenomenal musical legends must experience this musical genius. Standouts abound again will not start listing as this post from a blown away music lover would turn in to volumes, totally amazing singer/songwriter could write, sing plus play stellar piano where no other tread...truly a rare being Donny Hathaway broke the mold, sadly this another awesome talent was another gone too soon, total treasure of a Box Set a brilliant legacy celebrating an iconic musical genius who fortunately graced our life, for this feel so fortunate to be able to experience his prodigious gift. Love & miss you Donny forever and RIP great one...
