    Such a classic and essential soundtrack LP. It’s been in my collection in CD format but I just purchased an original pressing from 1974. It sounds better on vinyl. Almost flawless in appearance and sound. Hard to believe this LP is almost 50 years old!

      Seriously heart-wrenching rendition of “The Makings Of You”. Curtis originally knocked it out the park but Gladys rich but whispery voice knocked it out the atmosphere. Tear up every time I hear it

        Still sound great. Whatever they were doing in the production, mastering and pressing back then was quality.

          The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack score writen and produced by Curtis Mayfield.

          Curtis Mayfield with Gladys Knight & The Pips succeeded picturing this socialy relevant drama movie about the surviving life of single mother who has facing difficulty balancing family and finances in Harlem around 70s.

          The music is charming , the lyrics is powerfull , sweet soul Curtis Mayfield style .

          An awesome thoughtful soundtrack just like the movie .. every song every track is solid .
