Song of the Day – “Compared to What” – Roberta Flack

I wasn’t really familiar with this 1969 track from Roberta Flack, but when it kicked in as the theme for the recent reboot of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”, I knew it had to be one of my Songs of the Day.

It’s the first track from her debut album, First Take. Let that sink in a while: the very first exposure most people had to Flack was this gritty, soulful number. Awesome.
