12. Curtis Mayfield – Move On Up

by standardliss

A classic way beyond the scope of Northern Soul. One of the best soul songs of all time, perhaps Curtis Mayfield’s finest work. A party starter guaranteed. A textbook floor filler. I never understood how this song was released in the United States and didn’t even chart! The original version is 9 minutes and has a really bad ass extended jam on it. This is the shortened single version, originally released on Curtom (Mayfield’s label) appearing here via the original UK pressing from 1971.
