    I got my pops original copy he had back in the day, and I got some cleaner copies as well. They re-issued the vinyl too.

    Mane i love this album, Curtis subject matter still relevant to this day
    He may not have been the greatest vocalist but his songwriting/producing ability is only matched by few

    Y'all should check out the demo of little child running wild...one take. It sounds like it's him, the bass player, the drummer & the congo man!

    yea that demo is fire

    The demo for "Underground" on there is tuff too
    but the version on "Roots" is my 🤬
    the overall concept of the track was dope!
    Curtis is one of the GOAT songwriters

    ^such uplifting lyrics on that track, that song is all about unity, every shade of BLACK folk together as one people

    His subject matter is what makes him stand out as one of the greats, along with his production skills

    I'm talking 'bout brown and yellow too
    High yellow girl, can't you tell
    You're just the surface of our dark deep well
    If your mind could really see
    You'd know you're colored the same as me"

    Bumpin "Oh So Beautiful" off his last album

    heard he recorded the vocals for that album in the hosptial bed
    Organized Noise had a beat on "New World Order" too
    i think they even recorded Goodie Mob first album Soul Food in Curtis house
