Hi-Res Distinctions The Qobuz Ideal Discography
A guitarist worshipped by Jimi Hendrix, an insanely good falsetto singer that even Prince looked up to, an author heavily involved in the American civil rights movement and a top-tier songwriter: Curtis Mayfield was a man of many talents. His groovy symphonies helped form solid links between funk, jazz, blues, soul and traditional gospel. After making his name with The Impressions in the 60s, he embarked on a solo career in 1970. This box set named Keep On Keeping On contains the singer’s first four studio albums, each remastered in Hi-Res 24-Bit quality: Curtis (1970), Roots (1971), Back to the World (1973) and Sweet Exorcist (1974). Here, the rhythm'n'blues enjoy a second life, supported by a wah-wah guitar, careful percussion and an always airy string section. Every topic concerned is a mini-tragedy, socially engaged, anchored in traditional gospel music. The masterful arranging of these albums (especially his masterpiece Curtis, and Roots) can be considered rivals to Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On. It is worth mentioning that this 1970-1974 box set does not include the soundtrack to Superfly, Gordon Parks Jr.’s 1972 film which contains the singles Pusherman and Freddie’s Dead. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Soul - Released April 22, 2016 | Rhino Atlantic

A vocalist whose music was made of equal parts soul and sophistication, Benjamin Earl Nelson first rose to fame as the second lead singer with the Drifters, as they brought a fresh, uptown sound to R&B with string-laden hits like "There Goes My Baby" and "This Magic Moment." In 1960, Nelson struck out on his own, and adopted the stage name Ben E. King; it was the beginning of a solo career that would find him scoring hits well into the '80s. The Complete Atco/Atlantic Singles, Vol. 1: 1960-1966 is a two-disc collection that features 40 songs, all of which appeared on singles King cut for Atlantic Records and their affiliated Atco label between 1960 and 1966. As well as including hits like "Stand by Me," "Spanish Harlem," "Here Comes the Night," "I (Who Have Nothing)," and "Don't Play That Song (You Lied)," this set also includes the often rare flip sides to each hit, many of which have been out of print for decades, and the material has all been mastered from the original master tapes in their original monophonic mixes. For serious Ben E. King fans, The Complete Atco/Atlantic Singles is a rich, comprehensive look into one of the most fruitful periods of his recording career. © Mark Deming /TiVo
