DONNY HATHAWAY - Little Ghetto Boy
In 1972 Donny Hathaway recorded the soundtrack of the blaxploitation classic Come Back, Charleston Blue. Hathaway composed and conducted all the songs except for two songs - the title track which was co-written by Quincy Jones, and Little Ghetto Boy, which was co-written by Earl DuRouen. The same year the movie was released, Hathaway also released his two greatest and most influential records - the heavily praised Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway album, and his Live album, which has been called the greatest live album ever recorded - which also included a live version of Little Ghetto Boy. Additionally, in 1972 Hathaway also recorded the theme song to the popular 1970's TV series Maude. Little Ghetto Boy was sampled sampled over a dozen times, by artists including Wu-Tang Clan, Puff Daddy, and by Dr Dre on his 1992 The Chronic album
