Hip Hop / Rap
Orange vinyl 2019 remastered reissue
Critically-acclaimed sophomore album includes "We Got To Have Peace" and "Get Down"
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.
