Description

A “must-have”, the powerful and topical album Curtis set the bar high for Mayfield’s post-Impressions music and for his own label Curtom.  Lavishly self-produced, its epic funk-driven orchestral sound made it one of the most progressive soul albums of its era, one which showed the 1960s Impressions leader stepping into the 1970s  with two of his perennial themes — love and political consciousness — at the forefront of a harder new sound. Balanced between upbeat optimism and a fatalistic sense of dread, Curtis has resonated through the decades.

The album yielded two hit singles — ‘(Don’t Worry) If There’s Hell Below We’re All Going To Go’, and the inspirational dance classic, ‘Move On Up’.
