Alfred is pleased to release two new guitar songbooks, The Curtis Mayfield Guitar Songbook and Dream Theater: Systematic Chaos.
The Curtis Mayfield Guitar Songbook
From his work with The Impressions through his classic soundtrack for Superfly, Curtis Mayfield helped shape and define the sound of classic soul music. While most people knew him as a brilliant songwriter and soul singer, his talent extended to include incredible guitar skills as well. Curtis Mayfield's gentle guitar style quietly influenced an entire generation of guitarists, specifically the much-loved ballad style of the famous Jimi Hendrix. In 1995, Mayfield was awarded the extraordinary Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; he has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
Titles include "Beautiful Brother of Mine," "Choice of Colors," "Fool for You," "Freddie's Dead" (Theme from "Superfly"), "Give Me Your Love," "Gypsy Woman," "I'm So Proud," "It's All Right," "Mighty Mighty (Spade and Whitey)," "Move On Up," "People Get Ready," "Pusherman," "Superfly," "This Is My Country," "We Got to Have Peace," "We're a Winner," and "Woman's Got Soul."
