Till the End of Time
on 27 April 2008
Okay, I have always been a huge fan of smooth soul and R&B, and Roberta Flack has always been the perfect mix of those two genres. I usually like my soul music with a little oomph, but damn, I melt each and every single time I listen to Roberta's music. Not since Dionne Warwick has there been a singer who sang her songs so effortlessly. This is a rather short compilation, but it's her first, and still the best if you ask me. All of her greatest hits are here. From the stunning, and hopelessly romantic "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", to her legendary collaboration with Mr. H on "Where Is the Love". But these are far from being the only highlights on this album. Her reading of The Shirelle's "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" is fantastic, and "Feel Like Makin' Love" still stands the test of time. I'm a huge fan of Dionne Warwick, Grace Jones, Etta James, Gladys Knight and so on, but Roberta melts my heart.
Highlights: "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", "Feel Like Makin' Love" and "Where Is the Love".
