Mayfield left the Impressions in 1970 to pursue a solo career but still played an active part in the group acting as their musical director and producer. Mayfield’s fortunes would take a downward turn as his sincere form of soul music was ignored in favour of the shallowness of the disco boom although he was still in demand as a producer and worked extensively with Aretha Franklin.
