Curtis is the debut album by American soul musician Curtis Mayfield, released in September 1970. Produced by Mayfield, it was released on his own label Curtom Records. The musical styles of Curtis moved further away from the pop-soul sounds of Mayfield's previous group The Impressions and featured more of a funk and ed sound. The album's subject matter incorporates political and social concerns of the time.
Mayfield is truly one of the greats, a pioneer in funk and socially aware R&B. He received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995. Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1999 (Solo Performer) and previously (1991) as a member of The Impressions. Inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2000.

Viewed through the prism of the past two decades, Curtis Mayfield has been celebrated as a hip-hop prophet, largely because of his Superfly blaxploitation soundtrack of smooth funk grooves and ghetto poetics. But the late Chicago soul pioneer’s relevance extends far beyond hip-hop, as this atypically reverent remix album reminds. Louie Vega bumps up the tempo and beats of Superfly via newly recorded guitar, bass, brass, flute and percussion parts that take the 1972 anthem on a jazzy club excursion
