Emily J. Lordi – Donny Hathaway Live


I tried to listen to Donnie Hathaway’s live album but I couldn’t hack it, in a way that made me eager to read the volume and on the whole I liked it.

Rather than focus on the Live Album Lordi pinpoints how Donnie Hathaway live was both the beginning and end of this singer’s career. There are some discussion about the significance of the covers in the record but really this is a loose bio, however the most interesting bit is Hathaway’s life after the live album and his descent into mental illness. It is uncomfortable reading but for someone who has never heard his music before, I thought it was a good introduction.
