“Let It Be Roberta,” due February 7th, 2012, is Roberta Flack’s forthcoming album. She’s covering Beatles tunes! You can pre-order via Amazon as of today. Listening to the one sample song, “We Can Work It Out,” this album may bring several surprises. The production and groove of the remake is reminiscent of Paul Simon’s Graceland album. There is an 80’s quality to the expansive mood in the tune. Roberta has been performing live recently again. Here is her at South – South performance in 2011 doing her incredible ballad “The First Time I Saw Your Face”, followed by a classic live version of the same song. So what do you think, does the diva still “got it?” Are you happy to hear she’s doing Beatles covers or would you rather hear new originals?
