Curtis Mayfield was one of 20th Century music’s most influential performers, writers and producers.

Released in 1971, Roots is his second solo studio album and is often considered one of the finest soul albums of the Seventies. Lavishly produced, its epic funk-driven orchestral sound made it one of the most progressive soul albums of its era.

Consolidating the success of his debut Curtis - itself a benchmark album at the time - Roots marked a further stage in Curtis’ mastery of studio techniques and meaningful songwriting, particularly in his sophisticated political statements.

Opening with the hit single ‘Get Down’ - a hard-hitting slab of driving funk-rock - the album includes three of Curtis’ finest inspirational songs in ‘We Got To Have Peace’, ‘Beautiful Brother Of Mine’ (both hit singles) and ‘Keep On Keeping On’, as well as the impassioned blues of ‘Now You’re Gone’.
