We're revisiting Roberta Flack's 1982 LP, I’m The One, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this month.

'I'm The One'

Released 40 years ago this month, I’m The One finds Roberta Flack waxing warm and wise about matters of the heart on nine fine songs. Though many of those were penned by co-producers William Eaton, Ralph MacDonald and William Salter (including singles In the Name of Love and the title track), the Atlantic collection's best-known song - Top 40 hit Making Love, featured in the film of the same name – was co-written by Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager. As usual, Flack is supported by a bevy of outstanding jazz and R&B instrumentalists like saxophonist Grover Washington Jr., guitarist Lee Ritenour and keyboardist Richard Tee, and the singer's tone and phrasing are immaculate. Though the set is among the performer's more underrated, when a talent the calibre of Roberta Flack says  I’m The One, you should listen.
