Mayfield left the Impressions in 1970 and launched his solo career with his debut album, Curtis. The album reached the Billboard Pop Albums Chart Top 20 and was certified gold. It features “(Don’t Worry) If There’s A Hell Below, We’re All Going To Go,” a hit in the U.S., and “Move On Up,” which charted in the U.K. In terms of cultural significance, the album’s potent combination of socially conscious lyrics and soul/funk music helped blaze a trail for later albums like Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On and Stevie Wonder’s Innervisions.
Curtis went on to release More successful albums such as the R&B classic ‘ Roots’ , 1973’s ‘Back to The World’ and finally ‘Sweet Exorcist’ in 1974 which all span hits such as “Future Shock,” “Can’t Say Nothin’” and “If I Were Only A Child Again.”
