Yes, this is the ultimate introduction to Curtis Mayfield! There are dozens of compilations, but this one is superior because
(a) it includes his work both with the Impressions and as a solo artist (but focuses on his best period, till 1977), and
(b) it has 2 fully loaded CD's, which makes it a good value for money! It starts with his Sam Cooke imitations, and it ends with his unique funky approach. Essential soul! Buy this, you will be thrilled.
