CURTIS MAYFIELD "CURTIS" APPRECIATION THREAD RR
ok, so i've had this on wax for years...one of those 180 gram reissues or something. I used to play it out on gigs but for the past few years i've been so obsessed with 12"s that i've been ignoring my soul lps. then last week i found an OG copy in good shape at a thrift store in brooklyn so i've been listening to it again and i am just blown away at this record! even if it only had "Move On Up" or only "If there's a Hell Below We're All Gonna Go" it would be a classic lp...but the whole lp is just so amazing!the break on "Move on Up" is so rediculous...that whole track is so ahead of it's time...it's basically a disco track from 1970! who else was doing ten minute disco tracks in 1970?!and seriously...this record is pretty rare...i never see original copies of this in good shape. which is a shame because everybody needs this!
