Donny Hathaway Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything) Comments
  1. tim cox

    gotta chance to see his daughter lalah hathawy with anita baker, a month ago -- wow, lalah is her dad's daughter wholley, holy - both are blessed with the sultry-soulful vocal tones.I can recall me and my brother upon first hearing this tune back in 72 - we screamed when we heard Cornell Dupree's solo, and Willie Weeks too. we weren't impressed with Mike Howard, real talk. we loved Donny's sweet Rhodes electric piano solo - so special to that era --- the SEVENTIES, JACK. SOUL MUSIC - KING OF ALL MUSIC, BACK THEN. NO QUESTION.


    underrated live track such a f... groove

  3. bigreed43

    According to Maurice White's autobiography, he and Verdine was in the audience for this performance. Their younger brother was on drums.

  4. Dave Alpert

    Saw him close with this at the Fillmore East, opening for Leon Russell. Second act was Taj Mahal. Nobody knew who Hathaway was - then he blew the roof off.

  5. Drin H.

    Loved tji2s since high school❤

  6. A Face in the Crowd

    This reaches places other music does not.

  7. Col. Kurtz

    Love me some Willie Weeks!

  8. Russell Carpenter

    I'm back in high school!

  9. Joseph Lever

    Thinking about this a little more... His schizophrenic paranoia was probably the voices inside his head. Sad but amazing song

  10. the mighty joe

    22 deaf people checked it out apparently :-)

  11. Renaldo Alford

    To day it still has the originality , everything is still everything 🤗

  12. AlarmClock314

    Sick bass solo 8:35

  13. Narvia Williams


  14. Renaldo Alford

    WOW take's me back to a most wonderful time that's right Loved every minute of it **""""

  15. Renaldo Alford

    This is real down to earth music from the rooter to the Tooter,brings back the real Good Time's

  16. Marshall L Smith


  17. greg charlton

    Saw him at school (stony brook) before I knew who he was and they did this whole set. It was mostly an audience of stoned hippies and a smathering of others who knew nothing about the music. Didn’t know it then but this album was played everywhere on campus constantly after it hit the airwaves.

  18. Bryant Garrett

    Off the charts a real funky groove.

  19. SuperChargedDogs

    Too much trouble done sewed up the tracks xx

  20. eddiethek

    10 folks don't like this? Those peoples is crazy!

  21. Guillaume Llorca

    J'aime la Soul, avec mes tripes... J'en ai entendu des morceaux.... Mais celui ci... résonne en dedans, donne envie de Move... bouger... danser... suivre le rythme avec le corps... et partager... à l'instar de chaque musicien qui y va de son chorus... Chair de poule garantie... Musique de l'âme... ce qui prend son vrai sens ici...Encore ...

  22. Mark A. Lawrence

    Donny Hathaway was a great, great artist, Sadly you could fill his pain and suffering from the issues of his life in almost every song he song.

    Stephanie Pearson

    That's not sad, it's brilliant the way he is able to express himself through his music and everybody feels it in a supernatural way. I think it is awesome!!! Yeah that bass is the bomb!!!

    clenistine fortune

    +Stephanie Pearson Yes indeed Stephanie Pearson.

  23. rodrigo jofre

  41. KalimbaKid

    I always come back to hear Willie Weeks walkin' that bass, but Cornell Dupree makes that guitar cry pretty good too.

  42. loveyouall66


  43. Ken Simonds

    Smokin' bass solo! Totally inspires my playing!

  44. ColinTheButthead

    Anger*. You know what else is fun, having a real life outside of youtube. Getting off the computer is fun you should try it.

  45. ColinTheButthead

    haha what the fuck are you saying? Why are you so angry?

  46. ColinTheButthead

    Dang man your originality is running thin. I think you are playing the whole name analysis thing out, and quick frankly its not very insulting or offensive.

  47. Pete Hairington

    I would have sacrificed my left nut to have been in the club the night this was recorded. Donnie was a God + thee sweetest man!! R.I.P. Donnie

  48. ColinTheButthead

    Somebody wants attention...

  55. Kathy20102010

  56. Mark Cole

    Willie laid a thick assed SHAG CARPET for this groove to rest on!

  57. Frank Stoner

    Sorry, it writes

  58. JoJoGunn1956

    It's not Racism when WE do it!

  59. DimestoreLiam

    Damn right; Willie Weeks is cool (I'm listening to this mostly 'cause of his playing), but James Jamerson was The Man... Detroit love, y'all...

  60. Dorothea Ashe

    Your brother gets his!!!!

  61. PatsBooks

    We are the Gods of the planet. This is Blackness - The African Soul. Of course our children, socially constructed whites, genetic recessives, must try to imitate their parents. Y'all exist because we exist. Everything beautiful comes from us.

  62. robert Smith

  69. bassballs11

    Willie is alive and well and living in Nashville area. Just got married and last I saw was out with Eric Clapton.

  70. Lynn York

    Willie Weeks is without a doubt the best bass player of all time. At least in my life time. does any one know where he is or even if he still alive? If anyone can help me pls contact me @[email protected]

  71. kingcoach13

    good as willie was, larry graham set the standard.. and was the king. sorry. check him out here on youtube. type in "slap bass larry graham".judge for yourself. the thing about this song.. it has COUNTLESS awesome riffs from one end to the other.. is donny on the keyboard. just without peer when it came to change of tempo, nuance, creative wandering into previously unheard places. a musician trying to bust into the big time today should start right here & listen to donny for some inspiration

  72. Eduardo Cruz Alayo

    That fucking bass.

  73. fuzzyeggyolk


  74. Ronn Matlock

    Earl wasn't ready for this, either!
