This shit is one of those "where was I when I first heard..." type albums.
We are talking about Curtis Mayfield's score to "Superfly".
A score so good that it has out lasted the film itself.
Ask someone who played the lead in Superfly. They most likely will have no clue (myself included) but you ask someone to name some Curtis Mayfield joints and they will run off at LEAST two or 3 songs off this thing.
Before there was swag there was fly.
