|Curtis Mayfield Super Fly (Enhanced)Limited Deluxe Reissue Vinyl 2LP Set
This deluxe 2LP reissue presents the original soundtrack album together with a bonus LP of demos, alternate versions, a track which did not appear on the original album, two anti-drugs radio spots recorded by Mayfield and Curtom labelmates The Notations’ lesser-heard version of ‘Eddie You Should Know Better’.
The soundtrack to the ‘blaxploitation’ movie Superfly stayed in the U.S. album charts for almost a year, topping it for four weeks in 1972 and earning Curtis a gold disc. The solo albums he recorded between 1970 up until the time of his tragic accident in 1990 and which were released on his own label, Curtom Records, remain as testament to his genius.
His influence on American black music and culture has been immense and his thought-provoking lyrics and musical style are unique in their field.
