What’s old is new again. That’s the beauty of an album re-release.
Such is the case with Mayfield, which was a collaborative project by Curt Smith in 1997. Here’s some history of this album.

Most know Curt as a member of Tears For Fears. During his ten year hiatus from the band, he met up with Charlton Pettus and they wrote some songs and created a band. What came out of it was ten tracks that had a familiar TFF sound, mixed with a creative pop that flows quite well. The main single that alternative radio played was “What Are We Fighting For” which is a strong lead off track that’s equally catchy.
But as with some albums, this one went out of print. I was lucky enough to have had a CD of it, but at some point in the last 14 years, that CD is no where to be found.
Lucky for me, I can remedy that. Starting tomorrow – November 15th – the album gets re-released, with a bonus track. So if you are a fan of Tears For Fears and especially Curt Smith’s solo work, I highly recommended getting this album.
