1975 Roberta Flack – Feel Like Makin’ Love

Released in 1975, Feel Like Makin’ Love is Roberta Flack‘s fifth solo album and sixth overall, when counting her duet album with Donny Hathaway, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway from 1972. It was the first album produced by Flack herself, under the pseudonym Rubina Flake.

The album’s title cut had been issued as a single in June 1974 affording Flack her third #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, after which success Atlantic Records signed Flack to a new five year contract – reportedly the most lucrative ever signed by a female recording artist. The Feel Like Makin’ Love album had reportedly by September 1974 already accrued enough advance orders from retail outlets to guarantee gold status upon the album’s release, which was expected in November 1974.
