Curtis Mayfield – Roots (1971)

Curtom

CRS 8009

Fairly literal cover – though it could have been worse (my fellow Aussies know what I mean)

    • Originally Released:   October 1971

    • This Release:   2006

    • Mastering:   ???

    • Comments:   Curtom reissue on red 180 gram vinyl (manufactured by Rhino and distributed by Scorpio). The vinyl itself is dead quiet. Sonics are quite good, though an original pressing would probably be better. One day….

Do you have this pressing? If so, what do you think? If you have a different pressing, how is it? Please feel free to comment.
