Thirty-seven years ago today we lost soul singer, Donny Hathaway. The church-trained musician is best known for his version of "A Song for You" and his many duets with Roberta Flack. During his short life Hathaway recorded three solo albums, and scored a film. He also recorded a couple of live albums.

Today's Desert Island Pick is the 1972 live album that features soulful covers of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend", and John Lennon's "Jealous Guy", as well as originals like "The Ghetto".
