Boy Racers

Another addition to my spleen-venting category -

There will be a special place in hell reserved for Boy Racers (Westies & Boguns too).

They used to be just a nuisance - now they're just down-right lethal.

YouTube Music Video - Curtis Mayfield (Live)

Curtis is a bit of an unsung genius when compared with his contempories like Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Isaac Hayes. Curtis Mayfield added in elements of pop, psyhedelia, politics and social commentary to the traditional mix of soul/funk and r & b to his material.

No track better demonstrates this than his theme for the blaxploitation flick 'Superfly' - its a similar type of film to the classic 'Shaft' but the theme carries a much more positive message than the Isaac Hayes track which has become much more popular.

Thanks to the joys of YouTube - here is Curtis performing Superfly.
