Freddies Dead

Production

The film was financed by two black dentists and Gordon Parks, Sr., who had just directed the cult classic Shaft. Sig Shore, who produced Super Fly, plays Deputy Commissioner Riordan, or “The Man”.[5]

Nate Adams coordinated the fashion and wardrobe for the film. He had done several fashion shows prior to Super Fly. He still owns many of the suits, shoes and fedora hats.

Charles McGregor, who plays Fat Freddie, was released from prison before the film’s production. The film was shot by director of photography, James Signorelli, who would go on to become the film director at Saturday Night Live.

Of the people who did Super Fly, actor Carl Lee enjoyed great fame, until he abused drugs: in particular, heroin. He died in 1986 of an overdose. Curtis Mayfield did well with the film’s soundtrack that he was sought for other soundtracks. The songs Freddy’s Dead and the title song both shot up to the Pop Top Ten chart in late 1972

The Concert for Bangladesh − originally titled The Concert for Bangla Desh − is a live triple album by George Harrison and celebrity friends, released in December 1971 in America and January 1972 in Britain. The album followed the two concerts of the same name, held on 1 August 1971 at New York’s Madison Square Garden featuring Harrison, Bob Dylan, Ravi Shankar, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell and Badfinger. The shows were a pioneering charity event, in aid of the homeless Bengali refugees of the Bangladesh Liberation War, and preceded Live Aid by fourteen years.

Co-produced by Phil Spector and featuring the latter’s trademark Wall of Sound in a live setting, The Concert for Bangladesh won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1973.[1] Together with the 1972 Apple concert film directed by Saul Swimmer, the album was re-released in 2005, in remastered form.

It don’t come easy from The concert for Bangladesh…

Just like a woman…Bob Dylan & George Harrison

Beware of Darkness…(listen for the terrific sound of Leon Russell!)
