    i figure someone was going to drop this.

    move on up
    new world order
    when im gone (heard lauryn hill did a cover of this)

    i think curtis was one brother that could showcase a given emotion in his music (maybe that just me)

    are any of his late 70s albums worth copping? everyone went a little bit disco in that era but i can't imagine Curtis really fucking with it like that.

    I haven't heard all of them but obviously 'Superfly', like a million times better than the flick, although I like the flick.

    'eddie you should know better' is my pick of what i've heard.
