Details: Roberta Flack "First Take," 1969 pressing, Monarch. Released on Atlantic Records. Cover is in lovely condition (with original Atlantic generic insert) and album is in VG-only condition (noisy play/wear apparent).

Description: "Recorded over a period of just 10 hours, the future star’s breakthrough 1969 debut captured her idiosyncratic mix of soul, jazz, and folk and her singular vision as a bandleader. ... It took seven months for First Take to enter the Billboard charts, a testament to both the unbound-by-genre unusualness of her sound and the inevitability of its sheer brilliance. Over decades, Flack would enjoy a legendary and influential career and eventually the well-earned successes of a hitmaker and household name. But First Take was before all of that, recorded in the violent blinding flash of a moment when absolutely nothing seemed certain. “And it would last ’til the end of time,” she sang. So it has."
