    Lyrics:

    Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
    Gangsta whitewalls TV antennas in the back
    You may not have a car at all
    But remember brothers and sisters
    You can still stand tall
    Just be thankful for what you've got
    Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
    Diamond in the back, sunroof top, diggin' the scene with a gangsta lean Gangsta whitewalls, TV antennas in the back

    You may not have a car at all
    But remember, brothers and sisters
    You can still stand tall
    Just be thankful, for what you've got
    Diamond in the back, sunroof top, diggin' the scene with a gangsta lean woo hoo ooh (x3)
    Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
    Gangsta whitewalls, TV antennas in the back
    You may not have a car at all
    But remember brothers and sisters
    You can still stand tall
    Just be thankful, for what you've got
    Diamond in the back, sunroof top, diggin' the scene with a gangsta lean

    34:00

    This is a great album in an uplifting downtempo beat with very sophisticated elements from Soul and Funk music. This full album has been remastered, offering a full audio experience on YouTube.

    Curtis Lee Mayfield (June 3, 1942 – December 26, 1999) was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer, and one of the most influential musicians behind soul and politically conscious African-American music. He first achieved success and recognition with The Impressions during the civil rights movement of the late 1950s and 1960s, and later worked as a solo artist.

    Born in Chicago, Illinois, Mayfield started his musical career in a gospel choir. Moving to the North Side, he met Jerry Butler in 1956 at the age of 14, and joined the vocal group The Impressions. As a songwriter, Mayfield became noted as one of the first musicians to bring more prevalent themes of social awareness into soul music. In 1965, he wrote People Get Ready for the Impressions, which displayed his more politically charged songwriting. Ranked at no. 24 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, the song received numerous other awards and was included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll, as well as being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

    4:17

    Super Fly is the third studio album by American soul and funk musician Curtis Mayfield, released in July 1972 on Curtom Records. It was released as the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film of the same name. Widely considered a classic of 1970s soul and funk music, Super Fly was a nearly immediate hit. Its sales were bolstered by two million-selling singles, Freddie's Dead (#2 R&B, #4 Pop) and the title track (#5 R&B, #8 Pop). Super Fly is one of the few soundtracks to out-gross the film it accompanied.

    Super Fly, along with Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, was one of the pioneering soul concept albums, with its then-unique socially aware lyrics about poverty and drug abuse making the album stand out. The film and the soundtrack may be perceived as dissonant, since the Super Fly film holds rather ambiguous views on drug dealers, whereas Curtis Mayfield's position is far more critical. Like What's Going On, the album was a surprise hit that record executives felt had little chance at significant sales. Due to its success, Mayfield was tapped for several film soundtracks over the course of the decade.

    The brass and organ riffs in this song break my heart in pieces, and put it back together again every chorus. Listening to this song feels like being in love feels to me, earnest and hopeful and sad all at the same time. Curtis's music is like that, is open and vulnerable in ways that really reasonate with me. I think this is one of his best.

    5:23

    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone
    Porched up in a rocking-chair
    With my feet all bare
    Rolling my blunt in a cigar wrap
    Live an adolescent mind
    never do take the time
    Waiting for my high, quiet as it's kept
    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone
    Mama told me I was best
    Argue and punch in my chest
    Son now be strong, let me take you home
    I'd see in her eyes so sincere
    Screaming, what got me here
    Standing in the world and with my mind all blown
    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone
    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone
    I do nothing but waste all my time
    Leaving the world behind
    Smoking my crack just to keep me high
    Around the boys I play my part rough
    Keep myself tough enough
    Never to cry
    Don't really want to die
    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone
    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone

    CURTIS MAYFIELD~THE MAKINGS OF YOU
    Written by : Curtis Mayfield
    ALBUM The very best of Curtis Mayfield
    LYRICS
    Add a little sugar, honey suckle lamb
    Great expression of happiness
    Boy, you could not miss with a dozen roses
    Such would astound you
    The joy of children laughing around you
    These are the makings of you
    It is true, the makings of you, oh

    It's been a miracle for what you've done
    Please stay right by my side
    Two can be one for the righteous way to go
    Anyone would know
    I believe I thought I told you so
    You're second to none

    Love of all mankind should reflect some sign
    Of the words I'm trying to recite
    They're close, but not quite
    Almost impossible to do
    Describing the makings of you

  • Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions - People Get Ready

    2:39

    People Get Ready was a 1965 single by The Impressions, and the title track from the album of the same name. Please appreciate 1965!!! Such a positive songwriter. The single is today the group's best-known hit, reaching number-three on the Billboard R&B Chart and number 14 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The gospel-influenced track was a Curtis Mayfield composition, and displayed the growing sense of social and political awareness in his writing.

    People get ready, there's a train a comin'
    You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
    All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
    Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

    People get ready for the train to Jordan
    It's picking up passengers from coast to coast
    Faith is the key, open the doors and board 'em
    There's hope for all among those loved the most.

    There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
    Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
    Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
    For there's no hiding place against the Kingdom's throne

    So people get ready, there's a train a comin'
    You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
    All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
    Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

    This was on the soundtrack for The Mod Squad (MGM 1999) released on WEA/Elektra label. NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED. Lyrics:

    (Lauryn Hill):

    (Watch this... a-ah)
    Exhausting every chance
    These victims of circumstance
    Dancing the circle of confusion
    With cold muses
    Grab their soul with a tight grip
    Then uses up
    All your power
    While the weak man he loses
    And it's deep how
    Whenever man speak now he refuses
    To remember the abuses
    And all the people he misuses
    And there ain't no excuses
    Cos in every situation man chooses
    His own plate, his own fate, his own date
    At redemption, and only fools and babies get exemption
    Cos, in the hereafter school, see we all stay for detention
    And did I mention
    It's either ascention or dessention, no third dimension, so pay attention...

    (Curtis Mayfield with Lauryn Hill on background vocals):

    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone

    Porched up in a rocking-chair
    With my feet all bare
    Rolling my blunt in a cigar wrap
    Live an adolescent mind
    Never do take the time
    Waiting for my high, quiet as it's kept

    How did I get so far gone
    Where do I belong
    And where in the world did I ever go wrong
    If I took the time to replace
    What my mind erased
    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone

    Mama told me I was best

    Son now be strong, let me take you home

    I still feel as if I'm here but I'm gone

    How did I get so far gone
