From the soundtrack to the movie, Claudine, one of my top 3 favorite movies of ALL time, "To Be Invisible"—score written and produced by Curtis Mayfield—is an incredibly moving piece of soul music. Curtis Mayfield's arrangement showcases Gladys Knight & The Pips best qualities, specifically, The Pips' tonal harmony, and Gladys Knight's arresting lounge-style vocalization.
The music and video below is presented here for the purpose of scholarship.
