About this book
In the past forty years, Curtis Mayfield's music and poetry have grown into an impressive and truly individual body of work. His songs of love, peace and understanding have influenced millions of people since his original band, The Impressions, achieved stardom. Over time he has been looked upon as a source of inspiration to the musical careers of Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Elton John and UB40.

Analyzing his tragically cut-short life and career in detail, and quoting many interviews he had with the star over the years, Peter Burns celebrates the Chicago soul man who penned classics such as "It's All Right," "Choice of Colors," "Superfly," "Move On Up," and "People Get Ready." Complete with full discography and interviews with his contemporaries, this is the definitive account of his life and career.
