Super Fly 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. Its sales were bolstered by two million-selling singles, "Freddie's Dead" (number 2 R&B charts, number 4 Pop charts) and the title track (number 5 R&B, number 8 Pop)
It's hard to believe, but a doom-filled ode to screwing up ("Freddie's Dead") was actually a big hit during the Nixon years. The best album from Curtis Mayfield. But the song that really is unique and kicks ass is "dont worry,, if there is a hell below were all gonna go" But I dont believe the title to be true. but the song rocks! its on his debut album. Super Fly is all good though and not one track that I dont like.
