Biography

Biography by Steve Huey

Classy, urbane, reserved, smooth, and sophisticated -- all of these terms have been used to describe the music of Roberta Flack, particularly her string of romantic, light jazz ballad hits in the 1970s, which continue to enjoy popularity on MOR-oriented adult contemporary stations. Flack was the daughter of a church organist and started playing piano early enough ... Read more in Amazon's Roberta Flack Store

Although the very decent "softly with these songs: best of roberta flack" compilation was already in existence, this product is even better. The track listings are extremely similar, but there are enough subtle changes to make this a near-definitive selection of seventeen songs.

All the big hits feature, such as "Killing Me Softly...", "Feel Like Makin' Love", "The First Time Ever....", "The Closer I Get To You" and "Tonight, I Celebrate My Love". There are four tracks taken from the supreme "Roberta Flack featuring Donny Hathaway" album, including the full, magnificent seven plus minutes of "Don't Make Me Wait Too Long". "Back Together Again" is done as an edit, and does sound a little odd. The worthwhile "Oasis" album also yields a few selections and the set is brought to a close by the soulful "Trade Winds", which Rod Stewart would cover on "A Night On The Town".

All in all, a near-perfect collection. The sort of compilation which is guaranteed to hit the spot, whenever you give it a play. The one change i would make would be to find room for the great "Uh-Uh Ooh-Ooh Look Out" from "Oasis". (This track DOES feature on the "softly with these songs" compilation, but in an unsatisfactory remixed form.)

The duets featured with the equally smooth vocal tones of Donny Hathaway make for a perfect musical match as heard on a number of songs featured in this terrific collection. Equally in combination with Roberta singing solo so beautifully such powerful sentiments as expressed in the songs "Making Love" and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" serve to make this selection a musical must to be added to anyone's musical collections.

A Rhino compilation that usually means class, and this is no exception great selection of tracks, well-engineered and good liner notes by David Nathan. All the hits here are including duets with Donny Hathaway.

Get the original Rhino compilation for sound quality.

vital and elusive - how does she manage that! There are lovely moments in this album and revive memories from years ago. not all tracks stand the test of time but the gems like 'Killing me softly' are still gems!

I wanted a memory of a concert I went to this year in Washington when Roberta Flack sang with the National Symphony Orchestra. I was on holiday from Cornwall in the UK and it was worth making the trip just to hear her sing! This CD captures some of the magic moments when she first brought these songs onto the music scene. It seems a long time ago when I first heard her sing, but in the concert and on this CD her artistry is as fresh as ever

I'm so sorry, but I can not give a positive opinion on this disc. Certainly not for artistic merit, which are not discussed, but for the poor sound of some tracks. RHINO, this time you have not maintained your usual high standard.
