Album of the Day
Chapter Two (50th Anniversary Expanded Edition)
A strong follow-up to her stunning debut, Roberta Flack's CHAPTER TWO made it clear that she was an artist in it for the long haul. Flack takes songs as diverse as fiery opener “Reverend Lee,” Bob Dylan's “Just Like A Woman” and standards like “The Impossible Dream” and makes them her own with distinctive performances that draw deep from jazz, gospel and soul. With producer Joel Dorn and such arrangers as King Curtis and Donny Hathaway lending their talents, the 1970 Atlantic collection frames the performer's magnificent vocal and piano work beautifully. A new digital 50th Anniversary Expanded Edition of CHAPTER TWO adds a version of “Midnight Cowboy” as a bonus track.
