This album is Mayfield's soundtrack to the 1977 Robert M.Young flick "Short Eyes", based on the award-winning play by Miguel Pineiro.
This project, released on Mayfield's Curtom label, again demonstrates his commitment to delivering a strong message from the African American and Latino communities.
This powerful movie, despite its share of cliches (the inmates' code of honor, the race struggle that continues in jail, the abhorrent conditions of prisoners, especially Blacks) tears race relations on their head: here it is the white pedophile who is oppressed and the killers and drug dealers that surround him find their own dignity restored by their higher sense of morality.
A must see movie and a must have soundtrack!
