Throwback: Happy 78th Birthday Curtis Mayfield!

Today would have been the legendary soul singer/songwriter, producer and guitarist Curtis Mayfield‘s 78th birthday. ┬áNow, I won’t delve deeply into his biography — that’s what Wikipedia and Google are for after all — but I wanted to pay tribute to the man, whose work was the soundtrack of the Civil Rights movement. Of course, his work is still relevant for our time and is a worthy listen, if you’re not familiar with his work.
