Taken from the late Donny Hathaway’s 1972 album, Live. Live was recorded at two concerts: The Troubadour in Hollywood, and The Bitter End in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. The album features some traditional soul anthems, such as Marvin Gaye’s 1971 hit song “What’s Going On.” Widely considered one of the best live albums of all time.
