Roberta Flack - Feel Like Makin' Love (Remastered)

  April 10, 2016

3rd track from "The Very Best Of Roberta Flack" (2006). Originally the 5th track from "Feel Like Makin' Love" (1974). When I learned last autumn there was a remastered version of this sweet, jazzy, R&B classic but that it wasn't on YouTube, I knew I had to remedy the situation. But after uploading it, I found it was blocked worldwide due to copyright claims. But now the block is lifted—at least for now. So enjoy it while you can, folks! These things tend to come and go.

The remastered version is a welcome addition for lovers of smooth, in particular because the original version was recorded at low volume/bass levels and lacks the sonic oomph necessary to fit comfortably into a playlist of more recently recorded songs. The compilation CD includes several other remastered hits as well, and AllMusic reviewer Rob Theakston says it's "easily the best retrospective of her work available to date." So yay—way to go, Rhino!
