Keep on Keepin On - Curtis Mayfield, 1972.

Sometimes it is the most subtle shit that can implode our minds, like the silence that accompanies a dense fog or the smell of a violet. Curtis Mayfield, while anything but reserved in his songwriting, delivered his message in a smooth reserved soulfull message that pack the punch of a neutron bomb stuffed pillow, Devastating and tender.

  1. I have this recording on wax somewhere in a climate controlled storage locker in Minneapolis. Sad.

    Also, little known fact: My Dad's band in the 70's worked with Curtdom Productions to book gigs around the midwest. My dad said that Curtis would always stick them in really scary honky tonk bars. Love it.
