Curtis Mayfield - Roots [LP] (Orange Vinyl, limited to 1500)

Orange vinyl 2019 remastered reissue

Roots is Curtis Mayfield's visionary album, a landmark creation every bit as compelling and far-reaching in its musical and extra-musical goals as Marvin Gaye's contemporary What's Goin' On. Opening on the hit "Get Down," the album soars on some of the sweetest and most eloquent — yet driving — soul sounds heard up to that time.

Curtis Mayfield is highly regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American Music. He was also a multi-instrumentalist who played the guitar, bass, piano, saxophone, and drums.
