Curtis Mayfield in Concert
Ohne Filter (Musik Pur/MVD)
By: Randy Harward
What in God's name is Curtis Mayfield doing surrounded by a buncha whiteys, much less with a mulleted dork bass player? Sure, they're all talented, but it just seems wrong, this guy singing about Superfly with these guys behind him. But then, this should be reviewed on its musical merits, so suffice it to say Curtis Mayfield doesn't disappoint. He could have at least not opened with "Superfly," though. That song belongs at the end of the set. And would it have killed him to include "Don't Worry?"
The extras are the same on any Ohne Filter DVD: an interview with the producer, a technical section called Sound Tuning, both of which are to be skipped, and an artist bio.
