Craig Werner, Goldmine, 4 July 1997
CURTIS MAYFIELDS voice sinks to a whisper as he recalls the lyrics from one of his greatest songs: "Ive got my strength and it dont make no sense not to keep on pushing." If youre looking for a one-sentence summation of what soul music is all about, it would be hard to do better. Its a vision that inspired the marchers of the '60s and continues to speak to many wandering the wilderness of the nineties. Mayfield savors the line: "Keep on pushing."
