Week 39: Donny Hathaway

Holy moly, one more week of 30s!  How fitting seeing that I chose this week's album in honor of my brother, Taylor's 30th birthday today.  He's been saying for quite some time that I should review this album, and now it's time.  Donny Hathaway has one of the best voices that has ever graced this planet, but somehow I've missed listening to an album of his.  I've seen his sister, Layla, sing in concert before, and she definitely got some of those chops.  It's unfortunate that such a gift had to be lost so soon (he committed suicide at age 34 in 1979).  Won't be surprised if I do some crying this week...
