When people look to nominate the greatest soul album of the seventies, Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" usually takes the award. In my humble opinion that's not even the best album Marvin recorded. For my money "Superfly" wins hands down everytime.
This has the coolest grooves, the loveliest licks, and Curtis sublime vocals talking about social problems, the like of which had never been tackled with in such a mesmeric manner before.
While Marvin was asking,"What's going on?", Curtis was telling us.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By B Moraes VINE VOICE on 19 Feb. 2005
Format: Audio CD
This album isn't simply a blaxploitation soundtrack but one of the greatest albums ever made. Curtis envelopes his unbridled anger at the waste of life brought about by drugs, and the need for love and community in his own inimitable style. Curtis believed in self-help and community, he set up the Curtom label to allow himself and fellow musicians to be self-suficient. He wasn't just a great "soul" singer, musician, and song-writer but a towering artist of the 20th Century. This record, his output with the Impressions, his first solo album "Curtis" and "Roots" are testaments to his genius.

Any one interested in 70s culture/funk/soul/hip hop should own this album. Curtis Mayfield was a pioneer in the music world and this album still sounds brillant today and still has relevance to the times we live in

I remember going to see the movie just so I could hear the soundtrack - at that point it was not yet released. As soon as it was I bought it and played it to death. As soon as it was released on CD it bought it and played it to death.
It is astonishing to think the album is now over 30 years old. If it was released for the first time in 2005 it would be a worldwide smash - it really is that good.

Best-sounding CD version of "Superfly" 5 Feb. 2011
By Jabor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the old CD version of "Superfly" that was available before Rhino got their hands on this title in the mid- to late '90s. And as usual with Rhino, the sound was retooled to sound more in-your-face and modern. But this old version, while less slam-bang, also sounds a lot more smooth and natural (i.e., less harsh) than the Rhino. A great CD with great sound!
Soundtrack Masterpiece 1 Jan. 2014
By Janet Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The soundtrack to the movie "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield is a classic blend of soul, blues and funk all rolled into one. Out of all the great music Mayfield wrote and performed during his career this album just has to be the highlight of that career. I have never seen the movie "Superfly" itself and I am sure it is probably a good film but I have listened to the soundtrack for that film many times and it is always a pure joy to listen too. And really you don't have to have seen the film to get down with the groove and soul of this album. All the songs on here stand up on their own without needing a movie to justify what the songs are about. Whether you have seen the film or if like me you have never seen "Superfly" I can highly recommend this album as pure enjoyment to listen to.
