'Former Impressions leader’s superb 1970 solo album. Quite simply a must-have album' Q MAGAZINE

★★★★★ Q MAGAZINE

FOR CONTRACTUAL REASONS THIS RELEASE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN NORTH AMERICA.

By the time he made Curtis, his debut solo album from 1970, Curtis Mayfield had already achieved far more than many musicians do in a lifetime. He'd racked up a string of hits as leader of The Impressions, for whom he was the principal songwriter, had produced successful recordings for other artists and was owner of his own record label.

A powerful and topical concept album, Curtis set the bar high for such later soul statements as Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On.  Lavishly produced, its epic funk-driven orchestral sound made it one of the most progressive soul albums of its era.

Mayfield’s songs on this truly landmark album deal in the main with two of his perennial themes, love and political consciousness. The album yielded two hit singles  ‘(Don’t Worry) If There’s Hell Below We’re All Going To Go’, and the inspirational dance classic, ‘Move On Up’.  Both songs appear here in their full-length glory. The original album artwork is presented in an attractive digipack format.
