Donny Hathaway - The Ghetto (live) 1972

Taken from first side of Donny Hathaway`s 1972 Live album. It was recorded at two concerts: side one at The Troubadour in Hollywood, and side two at the The Bitter End in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. It features only one song written by Hathaway, "The Ghetto", with the rest of the set consisting of cover songs. The album features some tradition soul anthems, such as Marvin Gaye's 1971 hit "What's Going On", but also Carole King's folk standard "You've Got a Friend" and John Lennon`s "Jealous Guy". Try to take yourself these 12minutes of your time over the course of the weekend. It is if you don`t already know -worth it.
