Curtis Mayfield
Anyone else appreciate the sheer beauty of some of this mans music? Just listened to 'sweet exorcist' for the first time in ages.

An absolute treat for the ears and for the heart.

I know everybody whose heart is still thumping
Is drinking, shooting, snorting or smoking on something.

Re: Curtis Mayfield
Love all of his stuff. Mostly named on here.

But I particularly love 'Little Child Running Wild'. Great track.

Add a little sugar, honeysuckle and
a great big expression of happiness
Boy you couldn’t miss with a dozen roses
Such would astound you
The joy of children laughing around you
These are the makings of you
It is true, the makings of you

He's excellent but he's no Edwin Starr...

Re: Curtis Mayfield
A lot of his lesser known album tracks from the late 60s and early 70s are sensational too. They have this ultra cool, sexy atmosphere.

He recorded also with Blow Monkeys.

Re: Curtis Mayfield
Claret Badger, agreed. Patti Jo's version is unbelievable.

Curtis/Live! is one of the best live albums out there though

Re: Curtis Mayfield
If you can be musically cool, he is it.

Of another time when music was sweeter and real.

Re: Curtis Mayfield
Genius.

Yes, paralysed from the neck down for his last 9 years, but still composing some sublime stuff during that period, nevertheless. Loved "The Book I Haven't Read" he wrote with Lambchop.

Re: Curtis Mayfield
I always appreciated his work. Some of the early Impressions recordings were also great. e.g.
Woman's Got Soul / People Get Ready /
You've Been Cheatin'

The last nine years of his life must have been excruciating, being paralyzed from the neck down.

Re: Curtis Mayfield
Don't worry if there's a hell below we all going to go.

People get ready.

He did some epic stuff. Terrible accident with being paralysed.

Off topic but this will be appreciated by Mayfield fans. I was sent this the other day and it blew me away. Marvin Gaye isolated vocal track. Holy shit, that's some singing.

This is just great - better than the recorded version. From the OGWT.

Re: Curtis Mayfield
Oh yes. Got into his stuff via Fishbone's cover of Freddies's dead.
Beautiful and uplifting,

Ray.

You cant sit still either.

Claret Badger 1:11 Thu Aug 30
Re: Curtis Mayfield
Patti Jo's vocal cover of Let Me Believe in You is superior to Curtis' own
