Curtis Mayfield's finest moment. The beauty of his music completely contradicted the violence inherent in the film. The album features too many good tracks to mention; "Pusherman" and "Eddie's Dead" sound as fresh today as when they were first recorded.

Hi guys,
I’ve linked to this page in my post ”The First Annual Benefit for the Congressional Black Caucus (1975)”, which has a great live version of "Give Me Your Love"
All the best,
Simon from Never Enough Rhodes
