TheDeepVault(11/12/2012): CURTIS MAYFIELD – Give Me Your Love

super_fly_poster_02Arrived at our gig @ Le Piscine on the weekend to hear Hip-Hop legend 9th Wonder giving a lecture before his performance that same night on the upper floor of Plan B.  In response to being asked to name his most influential soul track of all time (loaded question or what!) he took a long pause before saying “Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly… And I mean the whole thing, beginning to end.”  This got me thinking about one of my favourite tracks from that seminal piece of work… (and does it make me a geek if I can’t resist commenting that I have the Buddha Records first edition at home? Maybe…)
