Publisher's Summary

Lenny Kravitz, a lifelong fan of Curtis Mayfield, celebrates his life and musical achievements in this four-part series.

Curtis was a prolific songwriter whose career was cut short following a tragic accident in 1990. He died in 1999, aged only 57. His songs influenced millions and he was an inspiration to musicians including Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin.

Episode 1, People Get Ready, concentrates on Curtis' early musical influences: his gospel beginnings, the songs he wrote for Jerry Butler, and his early Impressions' hits; while Episode 2, Move On Up, looks at Curtis' protest songs, chart success and his 'blaxploitation' movie theme Superfly. The third episode, Keep On Keeping On, takes us up to his appearance at the 1983 Glastonbury Festival; and the final episode, New World Order, covers the tragic circumstances preceding his death and celebrates his enduring legacy.
