    Superfly - Curtis Mayfield. This 1972 soundtrack to the blaxploitation movie (which followed SHAFT) is far better than the movie. This great album is ranked #69 on Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Album's of all time. Your perception of this album no doubt comes from the poor movie but believe me this album is not what you think it's going to be. In 1997 Rhino CD's put out a 25th Anni. collection on CD that has a extra CD of bonus material and unlike most bonus stuff, this is good. A great album.
