The Closer I Get to You" is a romantic ballad performed by African American jazz, soul, R&B, and folk singer-songwriter Roberta Flack and African American soul musician Donny Hathaway. The song was written by James Mtume and Reggie Lucas, two former members of Miles Davis's band, who were members of Flack's band at the time. Produced by Atlantic Records, the song was released on Flack's 1977 album Blue Lights in the Basement, and as a single in 1978.
Nice compilation of Mtume's music. James Mtume & Reggie Lucas we're producers in the 70s also, they produced Stephanie Mills' disco anthem "Put Your Body In It". Reggie went on to produce Madonna's self titled album "Madonna" in 1983. Mtume had a lot of great tunes throughout the 80s, their big one being "Juicy Fruit". I personally liked their songs ". Generation" and "Green Light" but this compilation has a lot of great songs that are slow and fast tempo. Very good sound quality.
