Not a career-spanning box sadly, but the Curtis Mayfield – Keep On Keeping On box set takes in the first four studio albums.

The selling point here is that the audio has been newly-remastered on these four albums, which cover the period of 1970 through to 1974. The albums featured in the box are Curtis (1970), Roots (1971), Back to the World (1973) and Sweet Exorcist (1974).

Oh yes, there’s another selling point too. This isn’t just a CD-only exercise, the box set is also being released as a 180 gram vinyl box set, both celebrating 50 years since Curtis kicked off his solo career.

The track listings for each album are below and if you want either the CD or LP box, both are released on 22nd February 2019. The CD box is £21.35 and the vinyl box is £60.12.
