Cut: "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue" (Curtis Mayfield)

Been jamming to some Curtis Mayfield lately and wanted to revisit one of the classic cuts from the legendary Mayfield's vast discography that epitomizes soul music in my book.

Back in September of 1970, Curtis Mayfield released his self-titled debut album Curtis and while it is best remembered for joints such as "Move on Up," and "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Going to Go," one of those cuts from the album is his raw joint "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue."  With that said, take a listen below to this stirring gem and Enjoy!
