If Chuck D. is the modern music's incarnation of Malcolm X, then Curtis Mayfield must surely be its Martin Luther King. From the inception of his career, Mayfield has created some of the warmest, most uplifting music that secular soul music has ever offered. ANTHOLOGY focuses mainly on his tenure with The Impressions--his seminal gospel based '60s group. Mayfield's intent was always clear: a ringing message of peace and brotherhood. His message for equality was insistent, yet it came with an open hand rather than a closed fist. The trust in humanity such a stance required during the '60s is evidenced in the beauty of Mayfield's songs.
"Meeting Over Yonder," "Keep on Pushing," and perhaps most importantly, "People Get Ready" overwhelm on musical merit alone. What is most impressive, however, is the power that lies in lack of bitterness or cynicism in these songs. As Mayfield moved on to a solo career, he became even more didactic, practically inventing funk in process with "Freddie's Dead" and "Superfly." He sunk into expansive grooves, displacing the glory '70s drug-induced complacency with wah-wah guitars and loping melodies. ANTHOLOGY ends on a decidedly positive note, which is probably how Mayfield prefers it.
Artist Overview
After leaving his position as leader of the Impressions, one of the most successful black vocal groups of the 1960s, Curtis Mayfield made progressive and highly influential funk/R&B records, most notably the soundtrack to the cult movie SUPERFLY. His unique, simultaneous rhythm/lead guitar style and fragile falsetto vocals have been much imitated but never duplicated. In 1990, Mayfield was the victim of an onstage accident that made him a quadriplegic, but it didn't stop him from making music. He released an album of new material in '96, though he would pass away three years later.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (2/4/93, p.69) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a remarkable document...this collection connects a decade's worth of gentle Impressions singles with the power and invention of Curtis Mayfield's solo career...a stunning picture..."
Entertainment Weekly (1/29/93, p.57) - "...this set is more than just a long-overdue reissue; it also serves as a vivid mini-history of soul, from '60s vocal harmony through '70s blaxploitation. Essential..." - Rating: A
Musician (6/93, p.94) - "...Even if you already know the big hits, this deeply satisfying two-CD feast holds wondrous delights..."
