Product Description

Beautiful collaboration on this 70'S SOUNDTRACK BY CURTIS MAYFIELD & STAPLE SINGERS

Amazon.co.uk

Although the film is obscure, the soundtrack is essential. As part of their magnificent efforts to bring everything Curtis Mayfield-related to the digital age, Charly Records have reissued Let’s Do It Again. And when you have one of the pioneers of soulful Southern funk writing for possibly the greatest soul/ gospel crossover act (both at the top of their game), what can you expect other than true excellence?

In fact, the only thing that loses points here is that fact that there’s only eight tracks on it; what is on there, though is largely faultless. The songwriting is Curtis Mayfield in pure, soulful, laid-back mode (think of "Give Me Your Love"), which coupled with Mavis Staples’ incredible voice treads the fine line between seductive and spiritual, and firmly succeeds in both camps. The title track (a minor hit) simply smoulders, while "New Orleans" is as sensual as silk sheets. Only the instrumental "Chase" seems pedestrian, but that might be down to the absence of any vocals. Everything else is truly brilliant, showcasing the best of Mayfield’s writing abilities and the Staples’ vocal talents; for any fan of soulful laid-back funk, this is as close to perfection as you can get. --Thom Allott

One Amazing Album 30 Sept. 2005
By D. Davenport - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Curtis Mayfield wrote some of the best motion picture scores of the 70s - and it was largely the sound of these films that catapulted them to box office success. "Let's Do It Again" as a stand alone single has always been one of the most soulful and happy jams of the era - but rarely has the rest of the album that it came from been celebrated. The music on this album is sooo cool. I'll even date myself by saying that the album is so good that it's Baaad.

Superfly Meets the Staples 3 April 2006
By Todd and In Charge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a must-have cd for fans of Curtis or the Staples Singers. It is a slight detour from most SS albums, in that this one is all about love, lust, and funky good timing. Curtis really teases out beautiful performances here, highlights include the smooth title track and the sexy workout "Funky Love." I really love "New Orleans," and was hoping it would get remade or re-noticed in the wake of Katrina. The song where it all works, though, is "I Want to Thank You," where Curtis's groove, funk, backbeat, and production meet the overtly spiritual nature of the lyrics (more traditional SS territory). A great album.

Sweet, sweet grooves 12 Mar. 2007
By Sedgie Rubrik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For years I could not find this album but the sweetness of the grooves meant that it just had to be re-released sometime. Mavis Staples swaps her spine-tingling spiritual invocations for something altogether more earthy and the result is dynamite. 'Let's get it on' may be the classic evening call to love but 'Let's do it again' is the track for the morning after. My only criticism is that the first tracks on the CD are the strongest and there's not quite enough on the whole CD to rate 5 star. Still - a classic and one for every lover of true soul music.

Doing it again and again 24 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent album. The combination of the staple singers and curtis mayfield was brilliant. Love to see their album Pass it On released as a CD also. This album goes great with Claudine by Gladys Knight and the Pips and Sparkle by Aretha Franklin. All three of these albums are soundtracks written by Curtis Mayfield.

Don't Ask. Just Listen. Then Cruise.......... 30 Jun. 2006
By Spree Playa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This soundtrack IMO was a breakthrough moment for The Staple Singers; they broke format into a much more sinful secular format than their earlier group albums and introduced generations of fans to their work. The late Pops Staples is so cool on his parts and laid back you tend to forget this is a old man singing with his daughters. Mavis' voice is just perfect; she has all the frustrations of a hormonal teenage girl mixed in with some determination to get what she wants. There is no bad track on here. They go so great and complement each other as they tell the outline of the film. So I won't keep you reviewers because you have to order this CD, wait the whole 3 days for it to come media mail, and press play, smile, grin, and chill.
