Curtis Mayfield graces the front cover – a film funk and soul focused issue #38 of Wax Poetics! This issue features a great piece on Curtis and the Superfly legacy, with Re:Discovery section profiles of soundtracks from Marvin Gaye's Trouble Man to John Carpenter's Assault On Precinct 13 and more, the resurrected Brotherman soundtrack to the never-made film from Chicago's Final Solution, a profile of Black Dynamite composer Adrian Younge, Gangs On Film from the South Bronx of 1979 documented in 80 Blocks From Tiffany's, articles on library music, Iceberg Slim, the funk era animation of Ralph Bakshi, Spike Lee, Numero's Light On The Southside and much more! This definitely going on our top shelf of favorite issues of Wax Poetics! (Issue #38 features 2 covers – both have images of Curtis Mayfield on the front cover. Some have back covers featuring a still of Ralph Bakshi's Coonskin, while others have a shot of Radio Raheem from Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
