12. Curtis Mayfield (On Superfly Film & Songwriting)
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.
