    This is THE one!

    People--if you never buy another CD for the rest of your life, DO NOT miss this one!!! Every track on New World Order is powerful and emotionally moving. This CD takes control of your entire body. While you listen to it your eyes will smile, your body will sway and your mind will soar with an uplifted feeling of pure joy. Curtis Mayfield definately knew exactly what he was doing when he put New World Order together.
