You are right Edie, it does seem like he is saying 'Good Bye' in that song. One can only imagine the pain he must have been in to figure taking his own life would be better than going on. So sad.
Oh year, Bert`s computer is down and out. It won`t even boot. I`m going by tomorrow to see if there is anything I can do. I told her, sometimes you gotta just pull the plug, and buy a new one. She didn`t wanna hear that. lol

Your contributions here are outstanding Gene. I hope you know how much you are appreciated. Very deep man you are and I'm glad we have you here. I miss Bert too. I'm going to see if I can't find Minnie on Unsung.

Edie, I watched it intently also. Its always interesting to learn the story behind the artist. Donny Hathaway`s was one of the most engrossing I have heard. And 'The Ghetto' is one of the best songs ever.
The one they did on Minnie Rippleton was sad too.

Extension Of A Man did not get the attention it should have. Like his wife said-it was the pinnacle of his gift...if you listen to it, you can tell he was in some...ethereal...place. It is a masterpiece right up there with Beethoven and Mozart and nem. For real.

I cried my eyes OUT when I heard of his death. Again, I thank you for posting this Gene. I watched it in rapt attention...indeed.

Extension Of A Man....*sigh* I have the album and still cry when I listen to it.

OMG! My son tre told me about this and I was sad that I didn't have cable to see it. Donny Hathaway is my favorite, as you know Gene. You my hero for this!!!!! *clapping* Thank You ♥

I like this show, that Donny Hathaway episode was so sad, Phylis Hyman was sad too. My Favorite one was about DeBarge.
