friday mixed tape: get on up

by Hugh

Bring on the funk.

Stevie Wonder: Superstition (1972)
One of the best openings in rock n roll. (And check out Stevie playing this tune on Sesame Street)

Curtis Mayfield: Freddie’s Dead (1972)
A very jazzed out version of Freddie’s Dead from the all-Mayfield soundtrack to the blacksploitation classic, Superfly.

James Brown: Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine (1970)
And the godfather.
