Album of the Day
A Donny Hathaway Collection
A gifted singer, songwriter, arranger and keyboardist, Chicago-born Donny Hathaway learned the ropes of the music industry at Curtis Mayfield's label before signing with Atco Records, where he remained for the rest of his career. Among the first surveys of his work for the company, 1990's A DONNY HATHAWAY COLLECTION reflects every facet of his talent, including such signature originals as “The Ghetto,” “Someday We'll All Be Free” and seasonal favorite “This Christmas.” While at Howard University, Hathaway befriended fellow student Roberta Flack, and their duets “Where Is the Love” and “The Closer I Get to You” both reached the Top 10. A DONNY HATHAWAY COLLECTION shows why the man was a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and the album is now available in a purple vinyl edition at rhino.com and Black-owned indie retailers.
