The Very Best of Curtis Mayfield
Among the pioneers of soul music with The Impressions in the 1960s, Curtis Mayfield's solo career was equally distinguished as a hitmaker, producer and label owner (of Curtom Records). THE VERY BEST OF CURTIS MAYFIELD is an inspiring display of the singer-songwriter's sweet falsetto, socially conscious lyrics and funky arrangements. The 1997 collection includes such classics as “(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Going to Go,” “The Makings of You” and “Freddie's Dead,” a Top 10 single from the Super Fly soundtrack. These 16 tracks are an ideal introduction to the work of the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy Hall of Fame inductee, and for Black History Month, THE VERY BEST OF CURTIS MAYFIELD has just been re-released on sky-blue vinyl.
