trying times


“Tryin’ times” – a magnificent song, written by Donny Hathaway and Leroy Hutson and first performed by Roberta Flack in 1969. Hathaway released his version in 1970; Hutson doesn’t seem to have recorded the song. Flack’s live version was recorded 1971-03-06 at the Soul to Soul festival in Accra, Ghana. (Do see the movie!) Fairground Attraction’s version from 1990 is nice too.“trying-times”/
