Awesome lyrics, great backing, and it just shows how Curtis said , “everything’s changed, but nothing changes “.

Where to start ? 

   I had the great pleasure to see Curtis ,  twice !   the first time i had tears rolling down my face, from the sheer magic that stood in front of me ,    he played that Telecaster with absolute ease,  he ooozed quality and class,   he had us hypnotised . 

     too many songs to list or mention,  but for me,   his ultimate 'protest' song   "People get ready" ,  makes me wilt.     just a fabulous song writer, performer,  guitarist, drummer,  etc etc.     he was a true legend and a true superstar .

  I was at Nottingham Palais,   a bank holiday sunday night,  (Kev Roberts do) when i heard the news he had sadly died,   i went to a phone box and phoned my cousin,   thats how important to us, Curtis Mayfield was

On Millennium eve, I played 'People Get Ready' as my first tune of the new Millennium, didn't take a lot of thought to choose it from all the tunes I had heard/owned over 40 years.

He will always be 'the gentle genius' !!!

Where do you start....He was one of the greats. A complete one off, brilliant and original.

What song to pick? Frankly you could choose dozens such is the quality of his recordings.

I really like this oh so gentle ballad.
