Roberta Flack Replay

Roberta Flack is back, in a manner of speaking.  The lady with the golden voice never did actually leave, or stop touring.

For the latest Roberta Flack tour, follow her link on our R&B music artists page.

Roberta’s come a long way, from an early job as a 19 year old twelfth grade English teacher in North Carolina, to an instructor in the art of making international hit music.

The “Killing me softly with his song” queen has a new best of CD out, I think.  Compare the songs on “The Very Best Of Roberta Flack,” (2006), with “Softly With These Songs: The Best Of Roberta Flack” (1993)...

  16. My Foolish Heart
  17. Uh-Uh Ooh-Ooh Look Out (Here It Comes) - (Steve Hurley’s House mix)

According to King’s math, 12 of the tracks are identical, with the exception of five on the 2006 CD:

  • “‘Till The Morning Comes”
  • “You Are My Heaven”
  • “Don’t Make Me Wait Too Long”
  • “And So It Goes (Reprise)”
  • “Trade Winds.”

Exclusive to the 1993 release are:

  • “More Than Everything”
  • “You Know What It’s Like”
  • “My Foolish Heart”
  • “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”
  • “Uh-Uh Oooh-Ooh Look Out (Here It Comes) - Steve Hurley’s House”

Well, if you are a collector, or a super Roberta Flack fan, I suppose you’ll like the newer update “best of” too (if you already have the 1993 collection).

In a recent radio interview, Roberta says she’s “looking for a man,” and is making plans to build a school in New York City.  Let’s hope she slam dunks both projects.
