REVIEWS
Average points: 4.87 (Reviews: 15)
******
Wunderschöner alter Soul-Klassiker von zwei Ausnahme-Stimmen. Leider nahm sich Donny Hathaway viel zu früh das Leben (er sprang 1979 aus dem Fenster eines Hotels). Verpasste 1978 (meinem Geburtsjahr) nur ganz knapp die Chartsspitze: UK 42, USA 2
******
Einzigartiger 70er Jahre R&B zum dahinschmelzen.
*****
Fein und schön, auch # 1 R&B und Millionseller im Frühling 1978
******
sehr guter song
****
Ach, muss ich auch hier den Quotendrücker spielen. Finde diesen Song wahrhaftig nicht aufregend, sondern nur ziemlich durchschnittlich. Zwei Ausnahmestimmen kommen hier nur zum Schmalspureinsatz. Das finde ich nur recht schade.
******
hab ich mir heute ihre DVD gekauft, bin dabei es mir anzuschauen, einfach ein genuss, wunderschöne stimme, wundrschönes lied
***
fade und langweilige berieselungsmusik...
*****
Vote Only.
****
das 2te erfolgreiche Duett der beiden..
******
sphaerisch, tolle komposition, ein Traum.
*****
Niiiiice.
*****
Fand ich früher eher langweilig, aber mit dem Alter legt der Song in meiner Wertschätzung immer mehr zu. Knapp 5*.
****
...gut...
*****
Das Doppel Mtume/Lucas schrieb und produzierte, Roberta gab ihre Samt-Stimme dazu, Donny begleitete unaufgeregt - ein Klassiker!
