Something to Believe In was the result of previous album Heartbeat's success, a great-selling comeback for Curtis Mayfield in his own style, fully in his control. The album's sales success was limited, but its musical triumphs were myriad — the beautiful "Something to Believe In," an extended track that is one of the most personal and ambitious records in Mayfield's whole output; the exquisite solo remakes of the Impressions hits "It's Alright" and "Never Let Me Go"; and the gorgeous ballad "Never Stop Loving Me," a sensual soul outing that provides a superb finish to the album. Strangely enough, the commercial single side "Love Me, Love Me Now" is one of the less impressive sides, on a production or composition level, among the seven tracks here. [A 1999 reissue by the British Sequel label combined Something to Believe In with 1979's Heartbeat.]
This is a GEM!!! THANK YOU I-Tunes
Tripping Out is the Camp-Lo "Black Nostalajack" sample that made their song hot. The original is ten times better. Curtis is the man. Listen to the lushness of his melody and rhythm and how he sits in the cut and just sing grooves an ode to his lady. WOW!
Another Treasure from Curtis
