Curtis Mayfield - Here But I'm Gone
I had to come across this whole LP by accident, because I really do go through life all the way on the oblivious side. I read the story of the recording through tears, so I'm not sure if I'm remembering it clearly. It might be best if you looked it up for yourself.
Curtis is criminally underrated. He's one of the giants, really. He made a living though, and he does get a lot of credit, so there's that. Man, Curtis falling off of that stage was a bad day for all of us. I miss him.
