Roots is Curtis Mayfield’s second studio album, released in October 1971 (see 1971 in music). soul sounds heard up to that time".

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.

Keep On Keeping On, 05:08. Beautiful Brother of Mine, 07:27. Now Your're Gone, 06:52.

Roots is Curtis Mayfield’s second studio album, released in October 1971. The album became a commercial success as well, hitting the slot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart. Producers Curtis Mayfield. Writers Curtis Mayfield

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Curtis Mayfield Format: Vinyl. Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). Temporarily out of stock.

It's album that encourages social awareness as much as it makes you want to get up and dance. Peppers of 70's soul. However, with Roots, Mayfield lays everything on the table. No other album could give you the sweet melody of Stevie Wonder and yet have a more righteous tone than Marvin Gaye. This album is Curtis, the artist, producer, and activist at his best. The vocals are high and are delivered in his trademark voice that almost sounds like a whisper. With them Mayfield paints the picture of life after the Civil Rights Act. This was key when experimenting with this brand of funk.
