Timothy Learys Dead
The First Time I Saw Your Face
That's a classic. I first heard it sung in 1961 by Canadian folksinger Bonnie Dobson in a solo concert for the students at Caltech.
It was written in 1957 by British folksinger and songwriter Ewan MacColl (Kirsty MacColl's father), one of the many politically-oriented musicians of the day. One version of the story is that a friend challenged him to write a love song with no political overtones. The conventional version says he simply wrote it for his fiance, American folksinger Peggy Seeger (brother of Pete Seeger, an icon of American folk music), who needed a love song for a play she was in.
Singers love this song; even I used to do it back when I could almost sing. In addition to Roberta Flack's cover, myriad others include Johnny Cash, Marianne Faithfull, Leona Lewis, Gordon Lightfoot, Alison Moyet, Aaron Neville, Elvis Presley and the Temptations. Harry Belafonte and Lena Horne sang it as a duet; I'll bet that brought the house down.
I didn't know that, thanks for the info. I saw Roberta Flack in concert and enjoyed this song that she sang to us way back when.

"The First Time" and Flack's signature song "Killing Me Softly with His Song" (by Normal Gibson and Charles Fox, worked up from Lori Liberman's poem "Killing Me Softly with His Blues" and titled after her own different song "Killing Me Softly with His Song," both of which were expressions of Lieberman's effusive reaction to a Don McLean concert) won Grammys for Record Of The Year in 1973 and 1974, respectively. She and U2 are the only artists to win this award back-to-back in two consecutive years.
For me here in Washington, Roberta Flack is a local star. She grew up in Arlington and graduated from Washington's Howard University, having enrolled at 15 on a music scholarship. She is 72 and still performing: she did a duet with Maxwell a few days ago at the 2010 Grammy Awards show.
Lucky you getting to see her. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

Just listening to Hasil Adkins' "The Great Lost Album". He was a fantastic one-man band that played outrageous rock, country, and rockabilly. Usually sounds very drunk. Lived in a tar-papered shack out in West Virginia, a couple of my friends met him before he died. He played drums and guitar at the same time.
No, I've never caught her show. I've only been out here for a few years.
