Roberta Flack – Killing Me Softly With His Song (Atlantic)

Also remembered for her two albums along with the late Soul legend Donny Hathaway, Roberta Flack enlightened the Soul, Jazz, R&B scene with a string of timeless standards such as ‘Where Is The Love’ with the latter (later covered by Will Downing and Mica Paris), but also ‘back Together Again’. Meanwhile, on her own, she’s responsible for ‘Feel Like Makin’ Love’ as well as ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song’ that would allow her to be the first (and only solo) artist to win the Grammy Award for Record Of The year’ two consecutive times, in 1973 and 1974…
She is said by Erykah Badu to have been of a major influence.
