Album Review

Capping off a string of early-'70s hits with this album's title track, Roberta Flack would soon take a sabbatical from the spotlight in 1975. And while she would return to the stage and studio, Flack never quite hit the heights of this and the handful of other MOR soul releases from the first half of the decade. Her Carole King-meets-Gladys Knight sound is particularly impressive on highlights like "Mr. Magic" and "Feelin' That Glow." Helping out with the stellar backing are such luminaries as vocalist Patti Austin, drummer Alphonze Mouzon, keyboardist Bob James, and guitarist Hugh McCracken. Maybe not as fine an album as 1971's Quiet Fire, Feel Like Making Love will still please the singer's dedicated fans.

Customer Reviews

Sensous, Jazzy Roberta

Personally I think this is her best album to date. With a wonderful assortment of jazz musicians to back her up, she is closest to being a jazz singer here. The only weak song that really does not fit in this album (each song seem to flow into each other) is perhaps 'Old Heartbreak Top Ten'. Not many albums can boast eight lush songs out of nine. Worth getting the whole CD. Shut out the lights(at midnight?) and turn on 'Early Ev'ry Midnight' and hear what I mean.....

Great Album

I bought this album because the title track is one of my favorite songs, but I was pleasantly surprised (well, maybe not surprised; Roberta Flack is great!) by how good the rest of the album is. Roberta Flack is a great songwriter with an awesome voice, and this album showcases all of that!

Not sure about it

The song ‘Feel Like Makin Love’ ends quickly and the sound quality is awful. This is questionable quality and length.

Classy, urbane, reserved, smooth, and sophisticated -- all of these terms have been used to describe the music of Roberta Flack, particularly her string of romantic, light jazz ballad hits in the 1970s, which continue to enjoy popularity on MOR-oriented adult contemporary stations. Flack was the daughter of a church organist and started playing piano early enough to get a music scholarship and eventually, a degree from Howard University. After a period of student teaching, Flack was discovered singing...
