I made a second trip to the HMV 2 for 30 quid sale a few days ago. One of the albums I came away with was Curtis the debut album by Curtis Mayfield. I paid more a couple of years ago to see Ayr United play Peterhead for goodness sake.
From 1970 (over 50 years ago - unbelieveable) it was released by the Curton label it represented a shift from the pop harmonies of The Impressions to a more funky and psychadelic approach with the subject matter being more political and socially aware. The result - a stonewall classic and a great album cover to boot!
I don't really trust my USB turntable with new vinyl and as there was no download I've dug up a couple of the tracks from the hard drive
