Someday We'll Be Free" has an inspiring message that is bogged down by a meandering tempo - the hook is compelling but isn't repeated enough.

Hathaway had already completed brilliant work as producer, arranger, composer, musician (choose one or any combination of the above) with Roberta Flack, Jerry Butler, Curtis Mayfield & the Impressions and others before releasing an album of his own late last year . It’s a very special album. I’ve been playing it about once a day for the past three weeks - do I need to say it’s one of the best records so far this year? In This Article: Donny Hathaway.
