Roots is Curtis Mayfield’s second studio album, released in October 1971 (see 1971 in music). soul sounds heard up to that time".

Roots is Curtis Mayfield's visionary album, a landmark creation every bit as compelling and far-reaching in its musical and extra-musical goals as Marvin Gaye's contemporary What's Goin' On. Opening on the hit "Get Down," the album soars on some of the sweetest and most eloquent - yet driving - soul sounds heard up to that time.

Curtis Mayfield's express train kept chugging on with his seacond solo album. Album cover and title aside this album finds Curtis covering somewhat similar stylistic ground as far as the music is concerned (Superfly was still a year away) and you can hear that on the opener "Get Down" and the other hit single from the album "Beautiful Brother Of Mine" have a similar music sound to the opener of his debut album,the former. While he may have produced consistently great, intellectual and popular music throughout his entire career, Curtis Mayfield was on a creative roll in the early to mid 70's, and "Roots" is one of his strongest efforts. While not quite as stunning in it's epic sweep as the flawless "Curtis", or as hard-hitting as the best moments on "Superfly", "Roots" is nonetheless a great LP.

Album · 1971 · 11 Songs. 1971's Roots is a perfect case in point. It's a compelling suite of songs that explore Mayfield's interests in socio-political issues, and there's a strong feel for romance in the sound. Horns, strings, guitars, keyboards, and complex percussion outline the landscapes that have Mayfield seeking equality for people everywhere
