The Sisters Love - "Give Me Your Love"

It's almost unheard of that someone covering Curtis Mayfield would be able to match his original, let alone possibly surpass it. In this case, I'd say that the Sisters Love have at least matched his original version of "Give Me Your Love" (originally found on his "Superfly" LP). The Sisters Love version is grittier, less cinematic. It's certainly more immediate. It doesn't possess Curtis' virtuosic touch, but the simplicity, force and focus of this version really make it work.
