Mayfield, Curtis

Roots
1971 Textured Gatefold Original With Detachable Calendar Still Intact. Small Corner Edge Tear, Hence Price. Curtis Mayfield's Visionary Album, A Landmark Creation Every Bit As Compelling And As Far-Reaching In Its Musical And Extra-Musical Goals As Marvin Gaye's Contemporary What's Goin' On. Opening On The Hit "Get Down," The Album Soars On Some Of The Sweetest And Most Eloquent — Yet Driving — Soul Sounds Heard Up To That Time. Mayfield's Growing Musical Ambitions, First Manifested On The Curtis Album, And His More Sophisticated Political Sensibilities, Presented With A Lot Of Raw Power On Curtis Live!, Are Pulled Together Here In A New, Richer Studio Language, Embodied In Extended Song Structures ("Underground"), Idealistic Yet Lyrically Dazzling Anthems ("We Got To Have Peace," "Keep On Keeping On," And, Best Of All, The Soaring "Beautiful Brother Of Mine"), And Impassioned Blues ("Now You're Gone").
