As with other Original Album Series packages, each disc is in a paper, LP replica-style sleeve with reproductions of the front and back sides. With the release of Original Album Series by Curtis Mayfield you get 5 Cds by the man himself It really is wonderful bargain.Unlike other sets these have not been re mastered and DO NOT include any extra tracks which is a shame.But then Curtis Mayfield produced each and every one of the five so I suspect that there was no need for them to be remastered as the sound was good to begin with.

Curtis Mayfield did it all, from playing guitar to arranging and producing recording sessions to running his own label. He also wrote songs, and great ones, like "People Get Ready," that should make the personal, social, and political soundtrack of just about everyone in the late 20th century. He also wrote scores of beautiful love songs, all of which sounded exactly like Curtis Mayfield, which was great if you got it, pretty repetitive if you didn't. This set features 15 of Mayfield's post-Impressions love songs, including the almost-country "Dirty Laundry," the gentle and assured "What You Gawn Do?," and a soothing plea for solace, "Just Ease My Mind," but there's a whole lot more of them out there.

Curtis Mayfield - Roots (1971) {1999 Rhino Remaster}

ROOTS is an essential Curtis Mayfield album. Released in 1971 when he was 29 years old, this set of songs is by turns wise, world-weary, spiritual, and mostly full of love and hope. The album was his follow-up to the successful CURTIS/LIVE set. Extensive touring and performance had infused Mayfield's technique with a casual grace mingled with just enough tension to underscore the edginess of some of his subject matter.

Genre: Soul | Label: Rhino Records | Catalog Number: 8122796478

CURTIS is the first solo album by R&B/soul legend Curtis Mayfield. After leaving the Impressions, Mayfield began to write lyrics that were more politically charged. With the 1970 release of CURTIS, he became one of the most important socially conscious artists of his generation. The album's opener, "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below We're All Going to Go" uses racial epithets openly, as Mayfield asserts the shiftlessness of America. Set to a funky groove, with smart horn arrangements and wah-wah guitar, this song is a brazen attack on social mores, racism, the Vietnam War, religious impropriety, and Nixon-era politics.

Never Say You Can't Survive was the last Curtis Mayfield album done in a pure soul vein for the next three years – its style and sound place it in a direct continuity with the rest of his output right back to 1958. The singing on love songs such as "Show Me Love," "Just Want to Be With You," and "When We're Alone" is among the most achingly lyrical and passionate of his career. The title track boasts ravishing backup singing by Kitty & the Haywoods (who also perform outstandingly on "I'm Gonna Win Your Love") and a beautiful arrangement by James Mack.
