Curtis Mayfield is one of the most important and highly regarded names in soul and funk music.

By the time he made his solo debut in 1970 he had already achieved far more than most artists can manage in a lifetime. He'd already enjoyed a string of hits as lead singer 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, in addition to several publishing companies.

The solo albums he recorded between 1970 up until the time of his tragic accident in 1990 and which were released on his own record label, Curtom Records, remain as testament to his genius.

The two original albums which make up this 2-on-1 CD release were both produced by Mayfield and were originally released on the Boardwalk label.

Recorded in California in 1981, Love Is The Place found Mayfield experimenting with his sound and yielded two Top Twenty R&B hit singles, the reggae-inspired 'She Don’t Let Nobody (But Me)' and 'Toot An’Toot An’Toot'. The first of these also gave Mayfield his biggest pop hit for six years whilst a cover by reggae duo Chaka Demus & Pliers made the UK Top 5 in 1993. The album’s superb title track is another highlight.

Honesty, recorded in Atlanta, Georgia in the following year, produced the hit 'Hey Baby (Give It All To Me)'.  'Dirty Laundry' was the highlight of the album, Mayfield’s strongest for years and critically-acclaimed at the time of its release.
