Newly remastered albums • Vinyl and CD box sets

Soul legend Curtis Mayfield‘s first four solo albums are collected in a new box set called Keep On Keeping On: Studio Albums 1970-1974.

The audio has been newly remastered and the albums in question are Curtis (1970), Roots (1971), Back to the World (1973) and Sweet Exorcist (1974). Thankfully, this set is being made available on both vinyl and CD.

“Curtis Mayfield was my husband and we were a team, so it’s an especially happy occasion to see these songs featured in a new boxed set on what would be Curtis’ 50th anniversary as a solo artist,” says his widow, Altheida Mayfield. “He passed 20 years ago this year and the family has and continues to lovingly support and share his musical legacy with the world.”

Keep On Keeping On: Studio Albums 1970-1974 will be released on 22 February 2019.
