Hathaway, Donny : The Best of Donny Hathaway (180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl)

See also

Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 gram audiophile vinyl release of ?The Best of Donny Hathaway.? Mastered for the first time from the original Atco Records tapes by Joe Reagoso, ?The Best of Donny Hathaway? features a heavy menu of Donny?s finest moments like the funk infused ?The Ghetto,? the definitive balladry of Leon Russell?s ?A Song For You,? and of course his duet chart topper with Roberta Flack ?Where Is The Love,? which truly opened up a worldwide audience to this sorely missed genius. Also included is his signature and timeless smash "Someday We'll All Be Free" as well as the super rare holiday classic "This Christmas."

Though his recording career was quite brief, Donny Hathaway has continued to be one of the most influential soul artists of the last four decades. He was a talented songwriter with the ability to write songs that provided, in a secular format, the depth of the most heartfelt Gospel music; and he was a remarkable song stylist who defined (or redefined) nearly every song he touched. His tragic death by an apparent suicide in 1979 cut short his career but for an artist who only recorded three solo studio albums, Hathaway left an incredible mark on soul music. Younger soul artists from India.Arie to Frank McComb to Alicia Keys to Kenny Lattimore consistently list Hathaway as among their principal musical influences, and his imprint on their music is clear. He was a perceptive and powerful songwriter and clearly one of the greatest Soul voices ever.
