You'll be surprised by the number of familiar hits and the musical styles of this variety of Curtis Mayfield tunes. All good.

Curtis, We Love You
Warren S. Demurjian | Cherry Hill, NJ United States | 12/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This All-Star tribute to Curtis Mayfield is one of my all-time favorite pieces of music, especially for driving in the car. The variety of music, voice, and interpretation is a complete joy. From Aretha and Gladys to Springsteen and Clapton, almost anyone who's "anyone" in popular music contributed to this testament to the wonderfully poignant songwriting skills of the great Curtis Mayfield! Whether you own 100 soul records or just one, you must add this disk to your collection."
A better than average tribute to a departed Master

"I was concerned when I first bought this album. Curtis Mayfield provided the soundtrack for my life. I follwed him through all the phases of his career, from his "Minstrel" phase, through his "Civil Rights" period, his social consciouness/radical period and finally his "love groove" phase. All of those periods are represented here save the "Superfly" soundtrack. Why no one tackled those tunes is unknown to me, probably publishing rights squabbles.Most of the works here are good if not great. Highlights for me are BB King's "The Woman's Got Soul", Aretha's, "The Making's of You", Phil Collin's haunting and soulful "Keep on Trying" and lastly Stevie Wonder's joyouns "I'm the one that Loves You". No slouches on this album. From Springsteen to Lenny Kravitz they're here and they represent. Almost a "must have"."
