Feel Like Makin' Love
With classical training and a strong jazz background informing her brand of R&B, Roberta Flack was among the most distinctive artists on the radio in the early 1970s. She had a pair of No.1 hits and a couple of Grammys to her credit when she entered the studio to cut FEEL LIKE MAKIN' LOVE, and the title track was another smash; it topped the U.S. singles chart on this day in 1974. The Atlantic Records collection was the first she produced herself - under the pseudonym “Rubina Flake” - employing a small army of top jazz players and background singers (including future stars Patti Austin and Deniece Williams) to sublime effect. Beyond the title hit, songs like “Mr. Magic” and “Feelin' That Glow” set the tone for FEEL LIKE MAKIN' LOVE: ethereal beauty, rich emotional texture and intimate reverie.
