The Curtis Mayfield Estate & RHINO announce a year-long celebration of Curtis Mayfield’s solo career, which started 50 years ago, launching with a new Civil-Rights-Era, a first-time compilation titled, “People Never Give Up”
When Curtis Mayfield launched his solo career 50 years ago, America was at a new crossroads. The revolt of the 60s had laid the groundwork for both progress and protest in the 70s, which laid bare intense divisions in the country.
The memories of that era in today’s political climate underlines the relevance of Curtis’ music, highlighted in the new collection PEOPLE NEVER GIVE UP, debuting today, October 30, 2020. The collection is available together for the first time on all the leading music streaming platforms.
