CLASSIC 1973 ALBUM FROM SOUL LEGEND

Curtis Mayfield was undeniably one of 20th Century music’s most influential performers, writers and producers.

The solo albums he recorded between 1970 up until the time of his tragic accident in 1990 and which were released on his own record label, Curtom Records, remain as testament to his genius.

The follow-up album to his hugely successful Superfly soundtrack, Back To The World was a powerful concept album dealing with America’s social issues, the aftermath of the Vietnam War, the environment (years before it became fashionable), as well as Curtis’ optimism for the future.

It made the Top 20 in America’s national album chart in the summer of 1973, and stayed there for over six months.

The three singles taken from the album, 'Future Shock', 'If I Were Only A Child Again' and 'Can’t Say Nothin’', all made both the R&B and the Pop charts.

Yet another landmark album from Curtis, its other highlights included the title track and the haunting 'Right On For The Darkness'.
