[Music Monday] Tripping Out

Sorry for the lack of a Music Monday post last week, but here is a song for you now! Curtis Mayfield is an RnB/Soul singer that started his career in the late 50s. There are not many times when I find too many artists or songs that are older than me, but I came to really like this. Then after some research, I learned that Mayfield received an incredibly amount of recognition for the music he’s produced throughout his life. I am still in awe of all of his awards and accolades such as the Grammy Legend Award, being a double inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and and Vocal Group Hall of Fame. In addition he’s in several of Rolling Stone’s lists of top artists such as 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, 500 Best Albums of All Time, 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, and 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. He is a very talented man.
