And I woke up wondering why she was covering the Beatles?
I love the Beatles. I will gladly buy the disc when it comes out. (Roberta, we want more music from you!!!! You're too much of a treasure to record so little!!!!)
But Roberta really is the Quiet Storm. That's a genre for radio. Roberta and a few other artists led that with these wonderful slow jams. Smokey Robinson was part of it. Anita Baker would become part of it. Sade can be considered part of it as well.
But as the heart of the Quiet Storm, why isn't she doing a cover album of Donovan songs?
His mysticism would seem a natural for the sensual type of music Roberta does so very well.
Could you imagine what she could do with "Catch The Wind," for example? Or "Wear Your Love Like Heaven"? And how about "There Is A Mountain"?
I would really love to hear an album of Robert doing those songs. Maybe after the Beatles album?
