In 1988, Roberta Flack made a comeback after a long hiatus away from the recording studios with a new album of songs in the adult contemporary vein. Using a vast array of top session musicians whose names would easily fill a page and crowd out liner notes, "Oasis" was released to public indifference, even though the title track did hit #1 on the R & B charts.

By the '90s, Roberta Flack had completely immersed herself in the adult contemporary portion of the radio world, and this 1991 album is concrete proof of that. Largely based on collaborations with fellow adult radio singer Maxi Priest, Set the Night to Music is an odd assortment of standards with a few new compositions thrown in here and there for good measure. No doubt, the album's title track is the standout hit, and one of the biggest commercial successes in Flack's esteemed career. But there are also small surprises here and there on the album, including a stirring rendition of Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable" and the Bell-Creed Philly soul classic "You Make Me Feel Brand New." The production values and choice of instrumentation give this album a slightly dated feel, with a greater emphasis placed on polished synthesizers over the warm tones of a Fender Rhodes or grand piano, but all in all it's a strong album that presents Flack's classy, distinct vocal styling in a palatable fashion.

A great album and the release that made Roberta Flack a major soul and R&B artist in the early '70s. She had a soft, compelling, alluring voice, and was able to convincingly switch gears and also convey anger, regret, hurt, or despair. Those who thought Flack was a one-hit wonder, or didn't think she could make the transition from doing mostly jazz to other styles, were convinced otherwise.

Vocalist Peabo Bryson was among the premier silky-voiced soul artists who emerged as the softer, more sophisticated urban contemporary sound became dominant in the '70s and '80s. Bryson, who was born in Greenville, SC, sang with Al Freeman & the Upsetters in 1965, and was in the group Moses Dillard & the Tex-Town Display from 1968 to 1973. He was a producer and composer for Atlanta's Bang Records in the early '70s, and sang in Michael Zager's Moon Band. His self-titled, debut LP and several singles were recorded for Bang's subsidiary company Bullet, among them "Do It with Feeling," "Underground Music," "It's Just a Matter of Time," "Just Another Day," and "I Can Make It Better." All were moderate R&B hits.

Aptly entitled "Roberta", this criminally ignored album from 1994 marked the return of a prodigal daughter and a new beginning for Robert Flack whose illustrious career as a serious jazz/soul artiste suddenly ended when she chose to walk down Adult Contemporary Lane. As if to atone for her walkabout, this album returns with a vengeance to the "singer in a jazz combo" format which launched her career in 1969 with the classic "First Take". Roberta's convincing return to form on this remarkable set may thus be seen as something of a renaissance in that up until then, she hadn't recorded anything remotely worthy of her own talent for nearly twenty years. Neither had she let on that she would once again allow her stately and majestic voice (described by admirers as "quiet fire" and "the sound of velvet melting") to take centrestage and become the focal point of her performances.

When Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack teamed up in 1983 to record the Capitol album BORN TO LOVE, the pair had already experienced success as a duo thanks to the 1980 LP, Live & More (a Top 10 R&B best-selling album). By the time they headed into the studio to cut BORN TO LOVE, Bryson was six years into his recording career and had established himself as one of the premier black male vocalists of the day; Flack was already considered an internationally-renowned artist thanks to classic recordings such as ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song.’

' song catalog is one of the best-known and revered bodies of work in the whole of modern music, and the depth, variety, and timelessness of the songs this once-in-a-lifetime band produced make that catalog both a marvel and a treasure. Everyone knows these songs, and everyone knows them in the original Beatles versions.

Out of print in the U.S. UK pressing of this 1972 collaboration between these two Soul greats. Roberta Flack was arguably the era's greatest practitioner of soulful, reflective R&B and her first collaboration with keyboardist and vocalist Donny Hathaway is one of her finest efforts. The rich, elastic voices of the duo are perfectly matched–they sing in close-knit harmony throughout the set, and their chemistry is intimate and full of strong emotion. Moods range subtly but distinctly, a funky version of "Baby I Love You" simmers along in a mellow groove, while the opener, "I (Who Have Nothing)", is a stirring, romantic ballad. Though a near-definitive version of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" is one of the highlights, the breezy "Where Is the Love", which became a runaway chart hit, steals the spotlight. This classic R&B record blends Soul, Folk, Jazz, and Blues with an earthy flair.

The combination of Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack undeniably ranks atop the all-time great duet parings in the history of R&B.
Any opportunity to have one guest on the other's recordings brought out a sensual energy not to be denied, similar to the magnetic duets between Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye for Motown during the '60s.
