People Get Ready: The Best of Curtis Mayfield with the Impressions covers the group's ABC years, from 1961 through 1968. All of the significant singles from the era are here, including the Top Ten U.S. R&B singles "Gypsy Woman," "It's All Right," "People Get Ready," "Woman's Got Soul," and "We're a Winner." Casual fans will probably look to get later Mayfield-era Impressions hits such as "Fool for You," "I Loved and I Lost," "This Is My Country, and "Choice of Colors," but those were issued on Curtom rather than on ABC. Ultimate Collection, released on Hip-O in 2001, also has its faults, but it does anthologize the ABC and Curtom hits.

What's Going On

Marvin Gaye

What's Going On Marvin Gaye
In your panoramas...
Curtis Mayfield, in a League of his Own

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.

What's Going On, Marvin ?

In the beginning, there was "What's Going On", one of the greatest soul records ever, released 50 years ago. This is the story of how Marvin Gaye changed the history of the Motown label and of popular music in the 1970s.
