Release Date:04/10/2009;Notes:SUPER FLY - Curtis Mayfield - O.S.T. Superfly is the third studio album by American soul musician Curtis Mayfield, released in July 1972 on Curtom Records. It was released as the soundtrack for the Blaxploitation film of the same name. Widely considered a classic of 1970s soul and funk music, Super Fly was a nearly immediate hit. It's sales were bolstered by two million-selling singles, "Freddie's Dead" (#2 R&B, #4 Pop) and the title track (#5 R&B, #8 Pop). Super Fly is one of the few soundtracks to out-gross the film it accompanied. Superfly, along with Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, was one of the pioneering soul concept albums, with it's then-unique socially aware lyrics about poverty and drug abuse making the album stand out. The film and the soundtrack may be perceived as dissonant, since the film holds rather ambiguous views on drug dealers, whereas Curtis Mayfield's position is far more critical. Like What's Going On, the album was a surprise hit that record executives felt had little chance at significant sales. Due to it's success, Mayfield was tapped for several film soundtracks over the course of the decade.;Track List:1. Little Child Running Wild 5:15;2. Pusherman 4:50;3. Freddie's Dead 5:08;4. Junkie Chase (Instrumental) 1:52;5. Give Me Your Love (Love Song) 4:15;6. Eddie You Should Know Better 2:14;7. No Thing on Me (Cocaine Song) 4:52;8. Think (Instrumental) 3:44;9. Superfly 3:51
