Curtis Mayfield - Short Eyes (1977)

1. Do Do Wap Is Strong in Here
2. Back Against the Wall
3. Need Someone to Love
4. Heavy Dude
5. Short Eyes - Freak, Freak, Free Free
6. Break It Down
7. Another Fool in Love
8. Father Confessor
This is the LP that broke Curtom. Pressed in huge quantities after the huge success of Superfly, the album stiffed and as a result is easy to find in great condition. It would be a mistake to pass up on it; there's a classic Mayfield cut in 'Do Do Wap Is Strong In Here' and several more strong late 70s funk tracks.
