    The Best of Donny Hathaway (Awaiting Repress)


    The Donny Hathaway/friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series Begins!


    Celebrate The Soulful Singer & Songwriter's Greatest Hits


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl!


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe "Philly Soul" Reagoso From The Original ATCO Records Tapes.


    Featuring The Rare Appearances Of This Christmas And You Were Meant For Me On Vinyl.


    Featuring Chart Topping Duets With Roberta Flack


    Donny Hathaway will be forever 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. Thanks to today's respect and care given to his music by a whole new
    generation of musicians and fans, Donny Hathaway forever reigns as one of soul's
    pioneers. 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


    Donny Hathaway created some of the greatest sides ever for ATCO, where he
    spent his time on earth creating some of the most masterful and beautiful soul music
    ever waxed.


    In 1978, Donny was honored with his first greatest hits collection simply titled
    The Best of Donny Hathaway. This stunning array of his most memorable hit singles
    and stellar album staples, most of them featuring Joel Dorn, Billy Cobham, Arif Mardin,
    Jerry Wexler, Eric Gale, Bernard Purdie, King Curtis, Doc Gibbs and Cornell Dupree,
    continues to illustrate how important a force he was then and still is today, over four
    decades since!


    The Best of Donny Hathaway features 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 duet chart topper with Roberta Flack Where Is The Love, which truly
    opened up a worldwide audience to this sorely missed genius.


    Even more classics abound as you'll hear the only vinyl release versions of
    his beautiful last top charting r&b ballad You Were Meant For Me and his standard
    holiday gem This Christmas. The fine LP also includes one of the more poignant songs
    of our time Someday We'll All Be Free which is truly a milestone song for this artist.
    This 1978 Greatest Hits LP hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades... that
    is until now!


    Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180
    Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Best Of Donny Hathaway. Mastered impeccably
    from the original ATCO Records tapes by Joe "Philly Soul" Reagoso at Friday Music
    Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic
    heights in the audiophile vinyl domain. We have also included the original artwork
    elements by Sandi Young, the classic illustration of Donny Hathaway by Norman
    Green, as well as the original back cover studio session information not seen in LP
    cover form in years!


    The soul lives on here at the Friday Music label, and as with our recent original
    pioneering soul albums from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Solomon Burke, Wilson
    Pickett and others, we feel this stunning Donny Hathaway 180 Gram Audiophile
    Vinyl will be a much anticipated and welcomed release to all the soul, funk and rock
    audiophile vinyl fans.

    Sugaring Season

    Beth Orton's Anti debut captures the classic hypnotic sound that won her prominence, at the same time as it shows a singer at the full maturity of her instrument, with a new soulfulness that can recall Roberta Flack or Nina Simone one moment, June Christy at the next. Sugaring Season is in many ways a culmination of Orton's art of contradictions, a full circle from that first John Martyn cover she recorded with William Orbit back in the day ? soulful and ambient, lush and bittersweet, starkly still and fiercely rhythmic.

    Home Again

    Few records make such an instant impression as Home Again, the debut album by Michael Kiwanuka, winner of the prestigious BBC Sound of 2012 prize. Immersing the listener in a sound that is both modern and at the same time as familiar as the classics, it manages to strike the balance between being contemporary and somehow utterly timeless. For Kiwanuka, key musical touchstones include Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Shuggie Otis, Roberta Flack's First Take, Bill Withers' Live At Carnegie Hall and D'Angelo's modern soul landmark Voodoo.


    Born in Muswell Hill to Ugandan ÉmigrÉ parents, Kiwanuka was brought up in a home from which music was largely absent, with his first introduction to rock (Nirvana, Radiohead) arriving at the same time as he began to hang with the skater kids in the north London suburb during his early teenage years. Later coming across a soul compilation album given away with a music monthly, he was enthralled by the sound of Otis Redding's studio talkback discussions with his engineer while recording an outtake version of (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay. From this point on, he resolved to make music that sounded raw and authentic.


    Though deeply into soul and jazz, he found real inspiration in the cross-pollination of the two styles with folk in the music of Bill Withers. "Bill Withers was very rootsy and earthy," he points out, "but people branded him as a soul singer. To me, he was a folk artist. So that encouraged me to keep going, 'cause I didn't know where I would fit in as a black guy with an acoustic guitar."


    While performing on the acoustic circuit around London, Kiwanuka quickly attracted interest and made connections, not least with his current manager who in turn garnered the attention of Communion Records, the label that in 2011 released the singer's first two acclaimed EPs, Tell Me A Tale and I'm Getting Ready. Both of these EPs, as with Home Again, were produced by Paul Butler (The Bees) in his vintage equipment-stuffed basement studio at his house in Ventnor on the Isle Of Wight. Together the pair played almost every instrument to be heard on the album, with Butler's remarkably intimate, detailed productions adorned with everything from flute to brass to sitar to aching strings, perfectly matching Kiwanuka's visions for his songs.


    "The way we made the record was very modern," the singer points out. "There was loads of editing. We manipulated it to get exactly what we wanted." From the opening bars of the stirring Tell Me A Tale, it is instantly clear that Home Again is a very special album. While its more upbeat characteristics are embodied in the Prince Buster-like loping of the lovelorn but irresistibly catchy Bones and the rolling soul groove of I'll Get Along, elsewhere it proves itself to be a record of real stripped-down beauty.


    In I Won't Lie, with its gospel-infused echoes of The Staples Singers, Kiwanuka offers something akin to a modern spiritual, while in Rest he turns in a tender love lullaby and in Always Waiting, he blends classical elements with the confessional intimacy of Roberta Flack. It is with the title track of Home Again, however, that Michael Kiwanuka feels the record's sounds and themes are ultimately encapsulated. "That's the song that really for me ties everything together," he says. "It's one of the earliest songs I wrote for the album and even though I progressed and changed stuff in the studio, it was the one I could never throw away. Like a lot of them, it's a hopeful song. I use home as the metaphor for contentment and peace within."


    Other parts of the record, on the other hand, find Kiwanuka struggling for peace of mind and using his songs as a form of self-empowerment, not least in the soulful I'm Getting Ready, the darker, unburdening Any Day Will Do Fine and the self-explanatory Worry Walks Beside Me. "It can really paralyze you, if you worry too much," the singer admits. "I do tend to overthink things. All of these songs are me talking to myself, really. Trying to encourage myself to believe."

    Soul Eyes

    Singer, songwriter and pianist Kandace Springs will release her debut full-length album Soul Eyes on Blue Note Records. Produced by Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein (Lizz Wright, Melody Gardot, Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock), the album touches upon soul and pop while channeling her jazz influences as well as her Nashville upbringing. Kandace counts such stylists as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack and Norah Jones as her heroes, but as evidenced by Soul Eyes, Springs mimics none of them.


    Kandace's journey to discovering her uniqueness didn't happen overnight. In fact, her 2014 self-titled debut EP had a decidedly contemporary R&B/hip-hop bent with production by Pop & Oak (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Miguel). The EP was incredibly well-received and led to performances on Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as well as appearances at the Afropunk and Bonnaroo festivals.


    Kandace was dubbed a "suave songstress" (Wall Street Journal), "a versatile and vital artist" (Afropunk), and "a vocal force to be reckoned with" (Okayplayer). Essence Magazine named her a New & Next artist and Interview Magazine made her their Music Discovery, writing that while "Hearing the word jazz might revert a listener's thoughts to the music of yesteryear...Up-and-comer Kandace Springs aims to change this notion. The singer, songwriter, and pianist blends elements of soul, jazz, and pop, producing a unique and modern twist on the genre that appeals to young and old listeners alike."


    As amazing an experience as that was, as Kandace got ready to record her album she couldn't shake the feeling that she wasn't yet singing her true self. Conversations with her longtime producers Carl Sturken and Evan Rogers led to soul searching and rethinking her musical direction. Also during this period, Kandace attracted the attention of Prince, who heard her makeover of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" on the website Okayplayer. The music icon invited her to perform with him at Paisley Park for the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain. "He encouraged me a lot before I recorded this new record, especially during the time in which I was trying to figure out my sound," Kandace says. "He told me that I needed to do what comes naturally to me. He was absolutely right."


    For Soul Eyes, Kandace continued working closely with Rogers and Sturken, but they also recruited Klein to help the singer bring out her distinctive artistic traits. "Larry wanted me to be free in the studio," she recalls. "I've been through a lot of other sessions in which the producer tries to take control of your sound. Larry was just like, 'Go in and play what you feel.' That ultimately led to the best outcome; he captured this record perfectly."


    Klein praises Kandace as a "natural." "In this era, in which flash and hunger for fame is often equated with talent, she's that rare person who sings and plays because that is what she needs to do in life," he says. "When I first heard Kandace, I was sold after hearing one song. Her smoky voice coupled with a sense of phrasing way beyond her years, and her angular way of accompanying herself on piano grabbed me right away."


    The eleven songs contained on Soul Eyes are a mix of Kandace's originals and co-writes as well as the jazz classic "Soul Eyes" and songs by Jesse Harris, Shelby Lynne, War, and others. The album features Kandace's playing piano alongside an illustrious cast of musicians that includes trumpeter Terence Blanchard, guitarists Dean Parks and Jesse Harris, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, organist Pete Kuzma, bassist Dan Lutz, percussionist Pete Korpela.

    Killing Me Softly (Out Of Stock)

    Originally released in 1973, Roberta Flack's Killing Me Softly was nominated for the 1974 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, losing graciously to Stevie Wonder's Innervisions. The legendary Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel composed title track, Killing Me Softly With His Song, however, won three awards including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, toppling the pop charts in the process.
