The My Mama & Dem Selection of the week is The Makings of You by Gladys Knight & The Pips. It comes from the Original Soundtrack of Claudine, which started Diahann Carroll and James Earl Jones. It happens to be be one of my favorite movies if you haven’t seen it please watch it. If you haven’t listened to the soundtrack you need to. It was written and produced by the late great Curtis Mayfield.
This soundtrack was released during a time when the same person wrote and produced the whole album, therefore leading to more cohesive albums. The combo of Uncle Curtis and Auntie Gladys doesn’t disappoint. This song and this album is soul music at it’s best! Get you some food for you soul!
