hulahooptrees Classic Album Of The Day: Roberta Flack featuring Donnie Hathaway
When I was around 11 or 12 I bought a 7" single of Roberta and Donnie's "Where Is The Love", a plaintive urging between lovers seeking the love they were promised that had yet to be felt. A situation a 12 year old would've had little experience in strictly speaking, but which nonetheless struck deep in me. I understood somehow the pain of love undelivered and I played that song over and over. That kind of reaction was typical whenever Roberta and Donnie blessed the world with their gifts. Largely forgotten as a duo, I'd place them above most of the celebrated duos in music. This self-titled album released in 1980 included two joints written by Stevie Wonder making it classic for that reason alone. Three greats on one song like "You Are My Heaven" is to be treasured and savored. The other duet "Back Together" is a pointed celebration of their reunion. Roberta's career up to this point had come to a sweet spot where age was acknowledged as a major music star with a least a few hits on every album. Donnie was also a treasured soul star loved primarily by fans of R&B not having hit the pop charts. But he also suffered from severe bouts of depression and would from time to time check into medical facilities to help cope with increasing mental difficulties. The toll weighed heavy on his ability to maintain his career and he began to record less, appearing sporadically in smaller clubs for intimate shows. The recording of this album was a return not only of the beloved duo but a return of sorts for Hathaway, making his death by suicide during its recording all the more tragic. These are probably the last two tracks he would ever record. The remainder of this album is Roberta at her best soulful self... All cuts, all classic.
