20 classic grooves from Curtis Mayfield's Curtom including propulsive cuts by the man himself and the label's other main players and hitmakers.

From the late Sixties and throughout the Seventies Curtom Records was responsible for some of the finest funk and soul music of the era - recordings especially admired for their sophisticated arrangements and production values.

Owned and operated by the legendary Curtis Mayfield, the Curtom label pretty well defined and set the pace for Chicago Funk during that era.

This collection features 20 of Curtom’s most propulsive cuts, funk at its most nuanced and sophisticated, covering a wide range of styles; ranging from early soulful examples of the genre to more harder-edged grooves, Blaxploitation and scorching, street-smart Funk.  Many of the lyrics contain incendiary social commentary, a signature feature of Curtom’s output.

Featuring performances from Curtis Mayfield himself, either solo or with The Impressions, many of the other tracks bear the stamp of his involvement in some way, be it as producer, arranger, player or writer.

As well as tracks from Curtis and the label’s other main players and hit-makers, such as Leroy Hutson, Baby Huey, The Notations and Linda Clifford, this set also features several gems and sought-after rarities from its less well-known talents.
