Containing Multitudes Since 2004
We could do with a reissue of the film of 'Short Eyes'. One of Curtis Mayfield's best soundtracks and a highpoint in his solo career. The movie's been unavailable, in the UK at least, for many years.
I'm a white punk in my late forties. I didn't get soul and r 'n b from late '60s and '70s until, oh, 2003.This cat moves me. A sad tale, to be reemerging only to get whacked . . .
For a short moment, I thought he was Spike Lee. BTW, Lee was here, this week, in Montréal.
I think his "Pusherman" sums up the early & mid 70s... from Blax era to the KojakColumboBaretta years... at least from my point of view...
One of the all ti,e best soul singers. And a great inovator of insightful expressionism... "Tryin' yo get over..."
he's the man
My friend was at the concert where Mayfield suffered his paralyzing accident. Sad end to a true legend.
