Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Superfly is RIAA-certified gold, with million selling singles still popular today. This release features album-length versions of all 9 songs from the film, plus 2 bonus tracks: The smash single edits of "Freddie's Dead" and "Superfly." Mayfield's distinctively soulful sounds are as contemporary today as they were when they first hit the airwaves (Rhino's Superfly Deluxe 25th Anniversary release has sold more than 65,000 units since its Nov. '97 release at a higher price).

The term "classic" is tossed about a lot these days, and when it's being used to describe everything from Coke to a Janet Jackson CD, the term is shady. But take my word that the 1972 soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Superfly is a true classic. Why? Because 25 years after its release, the songs still ring true and sound fresh. A morality tale set to funky grooves and plaintive vocals, Superfly is the zenith of Mayfield's socially aware songwriting, recounting the highs and lows of the thug life and the no-win ghetto game of hustling. 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. Truth be told, the record sounds as good, if not better, today and should be in everyone's collection. --Amy Linden
