#1044: 1969, Roberta Flack, Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye

by Bobby_West on November 5, 2015

The opening track to side two of Roberta Flack’s marvellous debut album, First Take – a recent discovery thanks to a speculative second-hand vinyl purchase. A bit of a revelation, can’t recommend it highly enough.

This song, written by Leonard Cohen and featuring on his debut two years earlier, is tender, touching, and in Roberta Flack’s hands, both gentle and intense at the same time. A real joy.
