Reseña de álbum

This expanded version of the classic album adds so much material that it really needs to be reviewed separately from the original article. The first disc of the two-CD set presents the entire album as it was originally sequenced, with the addition of the single mixes of "Freddie's Dead" and "Superfly." It's disc two that's really of interest to collectors, assembling about 40 minutes of different material from the same era, all but two tracks previously unissued (and those two were not released in the U.S.). In some cases this is fairly extraneous, as in the alternate mix of "Pusherman," but there's some interesting, even gripping stuff as well. Especially good is "Ghetto Child," which served as the harder, sparser demo of the song that eventually became "Little Child Runnin' Wild," and the 1970 demo "The Underground," whose hard-hitting lyrics and heavy guitar riffs are obvious prototypes for the Superfly approach. The full-length take of the instrumental "Junkie Chase," as well as instrumental versions of a couple of songs that had vocals on the original album, are atmospheric if not as essential; there are also a couple of radio spots and a seven-minute 1995 interview with Curtis Mayfield about the record. The second disc is good listening, though probably not of much interest to fans who aren't curious about the music's history. It makes a great bonus if you're upgrading to CD, however, as does an accompanying booklet with detailed text about the songs.

Curtis Mayfield is King!

Superfly is Curtis Mayfield's greatest album. it includes such great songs as "superfly","pusherman" and "freddie's dead". for anyone one who loves 70's R&B, funk or rock, this album is a must own. if you don't have it go out and buy it right now.


I own this soundtrack on vinyl, it was my first real introduction to Soul/Funk and i was in absolute awe! This record is a classic, and is one of the best soundtracks ever! Even if you are not a fan of Mr. Mayfield or his style of music you should give it a try, buy the whole album; the less hailed tracks will grow on you!

Saw the movie in the theater, bought the LP the same week

My sister and I saw Superfly the film when it came out in the early 70's. Both of us were in high school and the civil rights movement was in full swing in the small town we lived in Tenneessee. She and I were the only two white faces in the movie theater. It was a powerful film for time. The songs on the LP are still haunting and earth shaking as they were then. My favorite from the album is Little Child Runnin' Wild. A strong statement of youth growing up trapped in a world beyond their control. They could only hold on to each other and survive.

El legado de Curtis Mayfield es enorme. Como líder de los Impressions grabó algunas de las más bellas melodías del soul de grupo vocal de los años '60. Ya como solista, en los '70, fue pionero del funk y ayudó a introducir el comentario urbano crítico dentro de la música soul. Pero no era sólo un cantante. Escribía la mayor parte del material que usaba, en una época en que eso no era lo habitual entre los intérpretes de soul. Estuvo entre los primeros en hablar abiertamente, a través de sus composiciones,...
