Lab Overview

The first album Curtis released as a solo artist (after years of success with the Impressions) and its the same type of revelation that came with Marvin Gaye's What's Going On. Released in 1970, it was a new type of mainstream soul- way more funky and progressive on the arrangements, more political and soulful on the vocals. Imagine hearing something like the spaced out, dont-give-a-shit honesty of the intro to "(Dont Worry) If Theres A Hell Below Were All Gonna Go" back then. Damn, this brother's serious then he kicks in with the funk and strings and keeps on talking to the people. Genius. Other standout tracks include the eight minute dance floor burner "Move On Up," and the sweetly sung movement "We People Who Are Darker Than Blue," but like any great album that has stood the test of time, Curtis really makes its impact felt when you listen to it straight through. Also includes "Ms Black America," "Wild and Free," "Give It Up," "The Makings Of You" and "The Other Side Of Town." 50th anniversary edition with a full LP of bonus tracks that were previously unavailable on vinyl, plus a Curtis slipmat and new liner notes. Limited edition one time pressing, recommended.
