Roberta flack - quiet fire

In a just world, or at least at Fast ‘n’ Bulbous , Donny Hathaway, Terry Callier and Bill Withers stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Gaye and Wonder, and even surpass them at times. Despite her range delving further into blues and jazz than most of the artists, Nina Simone gets her rightful place in the soul pantheon. Etta James and Irma Thomas’s Muscle Shoals sessions nearly rival Aretha’s best work. While recent hipster favorites Rozetta Johnson, Doris Duke, Shuggie Otis, Baby Huey, Betty Davis, Candi Staton, Bettye Swann and Swamp Dogg make the list, they don’t quite measure up to underrated albums by James Carr, Percy Sledge, Solomon Burke, Clarence Carter, . Wright and Jimmy Hughes. And contrary to popular belief, there are some consistently great 60s Motown albums by The Temptations, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and Martha & the Vandellas.
