The Songs of Curtis Mayfield (Chicago Soul Music)

The Songs of Curtis Mayfield (Chicago Soul Music)

Playing tracks by

Jerry Butler, Mayfield Singers, Fascinations, Curtis Mayfield, The Impressions and more.

Welcome folks, was listening to an old Dave Godin interview, where I heard Fascinations 'Trusting In You'. I didn't have an MP3 so out went the call for the Sequel CD from 20 yrs back, the response from Alan T was phenomenal! So I got the CD with all the Mayfield's recordings, thats the group the Mayfield's, & the Fascinations recordings that they put out, and then to top, a collection of Curtis Mayfield Camad Publishing Demos from 1970 / 71, so those were Publisher cuts to sell his songs basically, not for commercial release but oh so good ! Mix-cloud won't allow me to just put up songs by same artist because of copy write control, but I've woven them into a selection of tracks all penned by Curtis.

Desert Island disc this one, never met anybody who doesn’t ‘crumble' to Curtis!

Thanks Carl, I did only cover his sweet sides here, so really it's his earlier songs and compositions I’m really interested in...
