Donny Hathaway The Best Of Donny Hathaway on 180g LP
Friday Music / Donny Hathaway 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood
Donny Hathaway will forever be known as one of the leading voices of the 70’s soul renaissance and truly one of the more championed songwriters during his short lifetime. Much like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, and other superstars before him, Donny had the necessary ingredients of a stellar voice/musicianship and songwriting acumen which successfully reached across all gospel, soul, rock and pop genres.
Hathaway created some of the greatest soul sides ever layed to wax for the ATCO label, who awarded him with his first greatest hits collection, The Best of Donny Hathaway in 1978. The 9-song set offers a stunning array of Hathaway's memorable hit singles and album staples, most of which feature the likes of Joel Dorn, Billy Cobham, Arif Mardin, Jerry Wexler, Eric Gale, Bernard Purdie, King Curtis, Doc Gibbs and Cornell Dupree.
The Best of Donny Hathaway is comprised of a heavy menu of his finest moments like the funk infused "The Ghetto," the definitive balladry of Leon Russell’s "A Song For You," and of course his chart topping duet with Roberta Flack "Where Is The Love." Even more classics abound with Donny's last chart topping R&B ballad "You Were Meant For Me," standard holiday gem "This Christmas," and milestone song "Someday We’ll All Be Free."
Friday Music is pleased to usher in their Donny Hathaway 180 Gram Vinyl Series with the release of the 1978 greatest hits set The Best Of Donny Hathaway, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA.
