The most comprehensive anthology and overview yet assembled of Mayfield's prolific recording career from 1968 to 1990. Compiled from the singles and the two-dozen albums he released on his own Curtom Records, this set features him in both a solo capacity and as a key member of the groundbreaking Impressions group. Each of this deluxe set's four discs have been carefully compiled to reflect the range of Mayfield's genius under four general themes-'Inspirational Themes', 'Love Songs', 'Cautionary Songs' and 'Films & Dance'. Containing over five hours of music. Lavishly packaged digi-book includes 56-page booklet with detailed track-by-track commentary on each of the 76 tracks.
Best overall anthology for the Great Curtis Mayfield!

"This is the best anthology available on Curtis Mayfield! Is it perfect? Does it contain everything? No. But it is a must have in your soul collection. I own this as well as Rhino's 3 cd set. The booklet is excellent and this UK version shows how much the UK loved Curtis! This the the perfect set to complement cd's you already have."
Another box set that is incomplete

"Curtis Mayfield is the greatest...no doubt about that. But this box set doesn't include one of his best songs...Little Child Running Wild. Make sure and buy the Superfly album so you can get one of his top 5 tracks of all time. It's an insult to have a Curtis Mayfield box set and not have this song. Otherwise cough up the loot and get this."
