Stumbled across this edit whilst documenting another post on Harlem … Here’s the original studio version by Bill Withers and here’s an inspiring page on his “Harlem” and a few other songs. Do indeed check Withers’ 1972-10-06 Carnegie Hall live version – actually the whole 2lp (Sussex 1973) is a classic; sadly the Legacy site no longer has info on their 1997 single cd remaster.

Musicwise, see also Superfly(1972), Hell up in Harlem(1973), Claudine(1974) and a few other era movies set in Harlem … and so much, much more … though not this song! Indeed, if you feel like investigating which other Blaxploitation movies were set in Harlem (if not all), here’s a few more links …
