Audio sample : Let's Groove (unreleased track recorded on Jan 11th,1974, Record Plant - New-York, USA)
Never My Love - The Anthology - Warner UK 2013
Seven years before Earth Wind & Fire, Donny Hathaway recorded a song called Let's Groove at the Record Plant in New-York City on january 11, 1974 (Atlantic master tape #28337). This 6 minutes and 41 seconds song is totally different as you can hear below, jazz oriented. That day, No Other One But You, Going Down & The Essence Of Destiny were also taped (you could hear these songs on the french boxset called Someday We'll All Be Free - check the link above). Donny performed with Ron Carter on bass, Chuggy Carter on percussion, Grady Tate on drums and more great musicians. Today, Warner France has posted a 2 min sample for all the fans. Thank you guys !
