John Abbey, Blues & Soul, July 1971
IT'S ONE of the strange things about the music world when a record that is five years old and is making its third bid for success is able to finally break through and achieve chart status. But that's the true story of The Fascinations and Girls Are Out To Get You, a Curtis Mayfield production that was cut in Chicago nearly six years ago. Even more incredible is that the record looks set to become the best selling Curtis Mayfield production in the U.K. to date.
