Happy OSF! I’m combining Old School Friday & Black Music Month. Today’s OSF theme is “My Current Mood Is…” pure soul. Head on over to Marva’s site to view the other OSF participants.
The late great Curtis Mayfield stepped on the music scene as a member of The Impressions. He later went solo and wrote the soundtracks to Superfly, Sparkle, Claudine and other R&B/funk tunes. Feel free to comment on your favorite tracks. And be sure to check out postings throughout the month.
