Curtis Mayfield's first two albums are available on one CD. A parade should be held in the album's honor. It's worth the price of admission and then some, as Mayfield's growth is exponential following his departure from seminal Chicago R and B masters The Impressions.

Sorely underexposed and underrated nationally, Mayfield is a true poet laureate, and if all you've ever heard is Superfly you should buy this album immediately. If you like artists ranging from BB King to Funkadelic to Stevie Wonder you should buy this record. The music is fantastic, and Live! is one of the best live albums of the seventies.
