Donny Hathaway – The Best Of – LP
In 1969 Donny Hathaway signed with ATCO records, subsiduary of Atlantic, in 1970 he released his first single “The Ghetto Part 1” which Rolling Stone Magazine marked him as a major force in Soul Music. His collaborations with Roberta Flack scored a win in the charts and won Hathaway a Grammy for The Best Pop Performance By A Duo for “Where Is The Love”.
If you’re not familiar with Hathaway’s work, think of the brilliance of Marvin Gaye crossed with the sweet production of Curtis Mayfield and you’ll get somewhere close but still quite a distance away. The man was completely unique. His song writing was so incredibly beautiful, it’s quite sad his life was cut short by his own hand in 1979….when you hear this album you’ll wonder just what more he could have achieved if he were still with us !
