Donny Hathaway is in the strange position of being both overrated and underrated at the same time. Overrated because whilst being a brilliant musician and arranger his song-writing could tend towards the trite and sentimental when it came to slower tempo tracks and his performance of these could be somewhat 'hammy' with overuse of Gospel-style melisma --- in fact this is where his influence is unfortunate since those song-writing & performing traits were picked up and exaggerated in the R&B of the late '70's, '80's and beyond; long after the sad passing of this soul great. Underrated because his legacy is so slim (only three studio albums and one live one in his lifetime) and so tends to be under heard and at his best, often when singing more upbeat funkier tunes such as his awesome "Everything Is Everything" and "The Ghetto" where his vocal instrumental and arranging skills come into their own, he is almost unsurpassable.

This inexpensive 4CD set is a sort of companion to the (excellent) Rhino France 4CD box, "Someday We'll All Be Free" from 2010. In fact it is packaged exactly the same in a fold-out cardboard case of the same dimensions (so they sit side-by-side quite nicely) with an excellent booklet containing pictures, track details and an informative essay by Charles Waring detailing the tragic struggles of this soul great with self-doubt and ultimately schizophrenia which lead to his demise in '79 by suicide.

The 4CDs are beautifully remastered and it is great to see Rhino Records (for now) back in the "proper" reissue game producing a 'labour-of-love' type set on which they originally based their reputation after solely producing "5-fer" cheapo repackaging jobs under he 'Original Album Series' banner for the last few years with no remastering and no liner notes.

One of the usual adjectives frequently appended to the fine singer / songwriter Donny Hathway is 'tragic'. Or 'doomed'. Owing to his suicide, and his seeming suffering from depression. Whilst that may be true, listening to his music, there's very little sign of the depression that led to his early death. There's more joy, love of life and happiness in his music than most manage. True, there is some introspection (his definitive reading of the Leon Russell opus, A Song For You, for example), and in places - particularly the more socially-aware material - righteous indignation, but really, it is the man's love of singing, and his rich soulfulness that shines through. This does dovetail neatly with other box set releases, particularly the French box set 'Someday We'll All Be Free', with not too much duplication. Excellent sound, sleeve notes, design, and great value for money. A fine epitaph for a consistently undervalued talent, well worth your listening time.

Back in 2010 - I reviewed the first ever multi-disc Box Set on the wonderful American Soul Artist DONNY HATHAWAY. It was issued by Rhino France and called "Someday We'll All Be Free" (see detailed review) - and even though it had great newly remastered sound quality - its liner notes were in French - not a lot of good to anyone outside of Paris. Well at last - along comes an English-language Box Set in 2013 - a superb 4CD 'companion' piece to "Someday We'll All Be Free" that boasts two whole discs of exclusive previously unreleased material. Here are the 'everything is everything' details...

UK released November 2013 on Atco/Rhino 8122796543 - "Never My Love: The Anthology" is a 58-track 4CD DigiBook Box Set and breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 (79:10 minutes):
Tracks 1 and 2 are "I Thank You Baby" and "Just Another Reason" - a 1969 USA 7" single on Curtom CR-1935 credited to JUNE & DONNIE. It was reissued in 1972 as "I Thank You" on Curtom CR-1971 - re-credited to JUNE CONQUEST and DONNY HATHAWAY
Tracks 3 and 4 are "The Ghetto Part 1" & "The Ghetto Part 2" - a 1969 USA 7" single on Atco 45-6719 (the album version is one long track - the single edits are unique)
Track 5 is "Thank You Master (For My Soul)" - a 1970 A-side Promo-Only Edit on the USA 7" single Atco 45-6759. The album version is 5:47 minutes - the edit here is 3:26 minutes.

This guy was underrated,but sadly ended his own life before fulfilling his true potential, leaving very little recording legacy behind. With this set, and the Rhino box set,i do believe it just about completes his entire recorded works. Of coursr,quite a lot of the sets overlap,but it's great to have his work with Roberta Flack included,none of which was included on the other set
