Compared to What ?
The first track on Roberta Flack's first album back in the early 70s. We liked Roberta a lot then, she was up there with Aretha Franklin and I saw them both twice, at the old Odeon Hammersmith in those years, Roberta's album has several other stunners well worth a listen now: "Angelitos Negros", "Trying Times", "Ballad of the Sad Young Men", "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" etc.
