The combination of Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack undeniably ranks atop the all-time great duet parings in the history of R&B. Any opportunity to have one guest on the other's recordings brought out a sensual energy not to be denied, similar to the magnetic duets between Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye for Motown during the '60s. This seven-song session didn't yield any timeless classics à la "The Closer I Get to You," but Flack's distinct and beautiful voice brings a level of class to this outing that few of her contemporaries were able to achieve.

Whereas Flack had gone on to be a global superstar, Hathaway had grappled with mental health issues and had effectively ceased recording after his 1973 album Extension of a Man. With Flack’s encouragement and support, the pair worked together again, recording the huge US hit duet The Closer I Get for Flack’s 1977 album, Blue Lights in the Basement. Plans were underway for the two to make a new record that was to feature four or five duets plus solo material. Sadly, Hathaway was not to finish the sessions, committing suicide during the recordings. The gourmet banquet of the former is followed with the high-quality fast food of Roberta Flack Featuring Donny Hathaway. However, given the circumstances surrounding its release, it is a fitting, frequently joyous full stop to the glory of the pair’s collaboration. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence.
