"Shaft" permettendo, "Superfly" è la migliore colonna sonora dei film del genere blaxploitation nonché, probabilmente, il miglior album del Curtis Mayfield solista. E' un soul adattato al nuovo decennio, più ritmato, più sporco, più psichedelico ma non acido.

Good, but the songs you know are the songs you know for a reason.

@DJTommy: I agree!
More interesting music. More atmosphere. More Funk.

Man, those horn stabs in the title track are so awesome..

The soundtrack to the blaxpotation classic, superfly, it is also a stunning album in it's own right. Fantastic songs, fantastic performances combine to create a wonderful record with tracks such, freddie's dead, pusherman, and the title track. Great stuff, a seventies classic from the great Curtis Mayfield.

From swhaze
fter Marvin Gaye's 1971 classic, What's Going On, a new sense of social awareness developed in soul music. One of the best aftershocks of What's Going On was Superfly, a 1972 release from former Impression, Curtis Mayfield. Unlike Gaye, who confronted a prism of social issues, Mayfield has his eyes set on the inner cities and the criminal world infused in it.

Unfortunately, this music is't my style and just doesn't speak to me.
