As for classic records, very hard to choose, but I think it would be A Donny Hathaway Collection. Nobody hits me quite like Donny, and, had he lived, he would have ruled the music world.
What else does he sing? I simply didn’t know. I had a cassette entitled, “A Donny Hathaway Collection” but I was embarrassed to admit I’d never listened to any other song on it. I felt like I had just failed a major musical test and imagined the disappointment on the faces of my father and uncles.
