Curtis Mayfield — Curtis (deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD 6.99

This was Curtis Mayfield's first solo album after leaving the Impressions, and it's a firey album of political soul that shows just how much he was holding back when he was with the group. The tracks are longer, angrier, more experimental, and a lot more funky. Standout tracks include "If There's a Hell Below, We're All Gonna Go", "Miss Black America", and "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue" – but the whole album's a classic! (Unique promo pressing – with promo track list sticker on front! Cover has some masking tape on the back of the gatefold.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
