I was 12 when this soundtrack was released.
I remember hearing “Superfly” and “Freddie’s Dead” on the radio when it came out….but never got a chance to see the movie.
That wasn’t a movie that a 12-year-old would get a chance to see.
What was it about all that music….Curtis Mayfield….Stevie Wonder….Philly Soul….that captivated me?
I knew what I liked even then.
Soul and hard funk for a 12-year-old brain is a good thing.
Here’s a live version that I’d never seen.
