Curtis Mayfield - Gotta Have Peace(1972)
Prachtige song van Curtis Mayfield,zeker in deze tijd van beste Wensen en goede voornemens van toepassing.Vooral de zinnen "Gotta Have Peace" and "Save The Children "spreken me zeer aan.Hopelijk dat er wat van in 2016 uitkomt.
Ik zag hem een keer "livë" op een zondagmiddag in Den Haag ergens in de jaren 90.Een prachtoptreden met een geweldige band.
Curtis Lee Mayfield was an American soul, R&B, and funk singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is best known for his anthemic music with The Impressions during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and for composing the soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Super Fly, Mayfield is highly regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American music. He was also a multi-instrumentalist who played the guitar, bass, piano, saxophone, and drums. Mayfield is a winner of both the Grammy Legend Award (in 1994) and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (in 1995), and he was a double inductee into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted as a member of The Impressions into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, and again in 1999 as a solo artist.
