SNAJ 740 CD

FOR CONTRACTUAL REASONS THIS RELEASE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN NORTH AMERICA.

4-CD clambox set containing five hours of glorious music celebrating the career of the late great Curtis Mayfield, selected from the recordings he made for his own Curtom label between 1968 and 1990. Includes authoritative 52 page booklet.

Curtis Mayfield’s untimely death in December of 1999 ended the extraordinary career of one of the 20th century’s most prolific and influential musical figures.

Truly multi-talented, as well as being a distinctive vocalist, guitarist and producer, Curtis Mayfield was also a writer of great range and vision whose inspirational songs made him a leading figure in America’s civil rights movement.

Soul Legacy is the most comprehensive anthology and overview yet assembled of Mayfield’s prolific recording career from 1968 up to the time of his tragic stage accident in 1990. Compiled from the singles and the two dozen albums which he released on his own Curtom Records, this set features him in both a solo capacity and as a key member of the ground-breaking Impressions group.

Each of this deluxe set’s four discs has been carefully compiled to reflect the range of Mayfield’s genius under four general themes: Inspiration, Love Songs, Cautionary Songs and Films and Dance.

Containing over five hours of music, the compilation's full color, lavishly illustrated booklet includes detailed commentary on each of its 77 tracks, in addition to an authoritative biography of the gentle genius and his immense contribution to popular music.
