How many harmony groups took their cue from the Impressions? How many songwriters forged a worldview from the compassionate commentary penned by Curtis Mayfield, the group's mouthpiece? People Get Ready! The Curtis Mayfield Story is a three-disc celebration of the immeasurably influential singer, songwriter, and guitarist as an Impression and as a solo artist. People tend to associate him with Superfly, the seminal blaxploitation flick for which he composed the groundbreaking score. What's striking, however, is how timely Mayfield remained over the course of three and a half decades. Want to understand the mind of a middle-aged African American who's lived through Jim Crow, the civil rights, Vietnam, black power, street crime, homelessness, and even crippling injury (Mayfield was paralyzed in the early '90s)? Listen to these discs. What's striking, though, is that, through all that, he never stopped writing love songs. --Steven Stolder
