"A powerful political and social musical statement from the former leader of The Impressions"
Curtis is the debut solo-album by Curtis Mayfield, originally released in September 1970. Produced by Mayfield, it was released on his own label Curtom Records. The musical styles of Curtis moved further away from the pop-soul sounds of Mayfield's previous group The Impressions and featured more of a funk and psychedelic-influenced sound. The album's subject matter incorporates political and social concerns of the time.
Features the hit tracks "(Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below We're All Going To Go" & "Move on up"!
