Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway is a collaborative studio album by American soul and R&B singers Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway, originally released in May 1972 via Atlantic Records.

Flack and Hathaway were both solo artists on the Atlantic roster who'd enjoyed critical acclaim, but Flack had enjoyed limited commercial success. Both had attended Howard University, although Flack's attendance there pre-dated Hathaway's. The singers' careers had overlapped, however: Flack had included Hathaway compositions on her First Take and Chapter Two albums, with the latter also featuring Hathaway as pianist, arranger and background vocalist.

It was Jerry Wexler who suggested that a joint venture might consolidate Flack and Hathaway's popularity.

The million-selling self-titled duet album by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway was the breakthrough record for Flack. Donny already enjoyed some commercial success, but their hit singles "You've Got a Friend" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" put Roberta on the radar.

This sensitive and emotional masterpiece can be seen as one of the best duet albums of all time.

It was the album's third single "Where Is the Love" which dominated the US radio for almost a year, and reached the fifth spot in the Billboard Hot 100.

The album itself shows a work of great depth and tenderness, with some of the most impressive vocal harmonies you'll ever hear.

After the success of the album, Flack and Hathaway recorded sporadically together throughout the '70s, until Hathaway's tragic death in 1979.

This album is a 2019 reissue on 180 gram audiophile black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Europe via Music On Vinyl.
