The Very Best of Curtis Mayfield
Curtis Mayfield recorded a string of hits with The Impressions before leaving the influential R&B group at the end of the 1960s for a solo career that produced some of his greatest work. Known as the "Gentle Genius," the singer-songwriter-producer has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice and THE VERY BEST OF CURTIS MAYFIELD focuses on the solo recordings that helped put him there. Allmusic called the collection “the best bet for anyone wanting a concise sampler of Mayfield's groundbreaking funk-soul,” and rightly so – its 16 tracks include such classics as “(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Going to Go,” “Future Shock” and seminal sides from his SUPERFLY soundtrack.
