Curtis Mayfield's 1975 masterpiece manages to combine some of the greatest soul ever recorded with thought-provoking lyrics tackling the key social political issues of the day. There's No Place Like America Today remains as testament to his genius. As one of the most influential performers, writers and producers of the last half of the 20th Century, Curtis created an album of stark political beauty.
The opening track "Billy Jack", a song about gun violence that was years ahead of it's time, while the song "When Seasons Change" is a beautifully wrought account of the miseries of urban life that contains elements of both gospel and contemporary soul. The record also features the popular single "So In Love".
