Curtis Mayfield, who has died aged 57, had one of the most achingly expressive voices in black music. His high tenor delivered some of the most significant soul music of the 1960s, and then took on a grittier edge in the 1970s as he moved, alongside Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, in the vanguard of black musicians giving voice to social and political concerns. As in the 1960s, Mayfield's lyrics continued to reflect the mood of black America, notably on the 1975 album ironically titled There's No Place Like America Today. During the 1970s Mayfield was also in demand as a producer. He worked on albums by Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and the Pips, and the Staple Singers. He toured Britain in 1983 and 1987, and, during the latter visit, recorded, with the Blow Monkeys, the song Celebrate (The Day After You) - which was banned by the BBC as a political attack on Mrs Thatcher.
soul/funk legend Curtis Mayfield; Celebrate (The Day After You) left no doubt where the Blow Monkeys stood on the subject. Interestingly, the Blow Monkeys took a Thatcher aphorism – namely, there’s no such thing as society – as a starting point for their next album, Whoops! There Goes The Neighbourhood a d record ( This record is NOT for sale in South Africa! ) that featured Wait, a collaboration with soul diva Kym Mazelle and an experimental dance/pop bias that reached fruition on the band’s final album Springtime
