Donny Hathaway Collection songs Product Information
Donny Hathaway Collection album for sale by Donny Hathaway was released Apr 12, 1990 on the Atlantic (Label) label. Unfortunately, Atlantic's A Donny Hathaway Collection, one of the few career retrospectives available (and basically the only one in print), isn't quite definitive; it presents a version of Hathaway's career inordinately focused on his commercially successful duets with Roberta Flack, and his slowest, most dirge-like solo recordings. A few of his best up-tempo tracks are represented ("The Ghetto," his live cover of "What's Going On"), but not before haunted material like "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know," and "Giving Up." Admittedly, his duets with Flack are among the best recordings of his career, ranging from the depressed ("Where Is the Love") to the atmospheric ("The Closer I Get to You") to the downright driving ("Back Together Again"). Donny Hathaway Collection CD music contains a single disc with 15 songs. ...See Full Description

||Great compilation of an awesome artist!|
This album is a excellent introduction to Donny Hathaway's music. I think that he was one of the greatest soul singer of 70's, at same level of Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye, although not such popular.

While the title of The Ultimate Collection may be overstating the matters somewhat, this 17-track compilation does come very close to fulfilling the title's promise. This compilation concentrates on Angela Winbush's late-'80s recordings for Mercury, dipping into the early '80s and early '90s on occasion, so some may complain that it's too focused on a particular era, yet that helps the collection, since that's when Winbush was at her best. Relying on single versions, radio mixes, and edits (though there are several album versions here, as well), this gives a good portrait of what Winbush was all about -- smooth urban soul, graced with exceptional vocals. Her material may not always be first-rate, but her performances are usually impassioned, and this collection makes an excellent case for her talents. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Love Songs CD (2001) Top Seller
Donny Hathaway Collection CD music Originally released on T-Neck Records. Includes liner notes by Virginia Prescott.
Along the way to being a bridge throughout the history of R&B throughout the latter half of the 20th century, the Isley Brothers also directly helped shape facets of the genre along the way. Starting in the '70s, eldest Isley siblings Ronald, Rudolph, and the late O'Kelly carved out a soundtrack for silk-sheet relations along with fellow love lords Barry White and Marvin Gaye.
This collection hinges on Ronald Isley's creamy falsetto; it's easy to mistake him for Al Green, particularly against a background of swirling keyboards on "For the Love of You (Parts 1 & 2)" and the crying guitar of "Voyage to Atlantis." As usual, the Isleys include unlikely artistic interpretations (Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me," and Seals & Crofts' "Summer Breeze") that work superbly. The most memorable bedside listening comes from the thick-as-molasses beat, crooning vocals, and background grunting of "Between the Sheets," the quintessential jam that's influenced an army of contemporary R&B lotharios, including R. Kelly and Joe. LOVE SONGS proves the Isleys to be the masters at the art of the seductive song.

|These Songs for You, Live! CD (2004)
Donny Hathaway Collection CD music This disc culls cuts from two long out of print live albums by Donny Hathaway (LIVE and IN PERFORMANCE), spotlighting concerts from 1971 and 1973, and spices up the pot with a wealth of previously unreleased live material of similar vintage. We get to hear this R&B giant in full flight as he reinvents other people's tunes and lays down smoking versions of his own compositions, backed by a highly sympathetic band that includes heavyweight jazz guitarist Phil Upchurch and Earth, Wind & Fire drummer Fred White.
Hathaway's own soul-jazz instrumental "Valdez in the Country" displays the singer/songwriter's impressive keyboard skills, and "Someday We'll All Be Free" highlights his strong gospel influence. The level of soulful emotion and musical invention Hathaway brings to his intense readings of everything from the Beatles' "Yesterday" to Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" is as indicative of his one-of-a-kind gift as his considerable songwriting abilities are. The closer is another bonus interview segment where Hathaway talks about studying Stravinsky's orchestrations and taking composition lessons from jazz legend Yusef Lateef, showing the depth of his own musical vision.

|Donny Hathaway CD (1971)
Donny Hathaway Collection buy CD music With just one exception, Donny Hathaway's second full-length is a covers album, featuring one of the most pop-averse artists in soul music surprisingly offering interpretations of contemporary hit material like "A Song for You," "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," "Magnificent Sanctuary Band," and (most effectively) "Put Your Hand in the Hand," a laidback yet rolling, gospel-choir version of the song he was born to sing. In striking contrast to his debut, Donny Hathaway is a very dark record, and it opens on a particularly low note, with "Giving Up" (a 1964 R&B hit for Gladys Knight & the Pips). Most of Hathaway's performances are slow, piano-led laments, powerfully delivered but with little melodic sway to convert listeners. It's no coincedence then, that the only up-tempo song, "Magnificent Sanctuary Band," is the standout. "Little Girl" is a nice piece of gospel testifying with great male harmonizing on the chorus, and "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" is a solid rendering of a song usually drenched in pathos. Still, whereas Everything Is Everything saw him leading the choir up in the front of church, Donny Hathaway sounds like the lament of a man alone in the sanctuary after services are finished. ~ John Bush
