The Impressions – The Complete A & B Sides 1961 – 1968

The music made by The Impressions was simply beautiful, and this collections collects almost too much beauty to bear.

You’ll know “People Get Ready” of course, but you should listen to it all. Listen to it, and remember a time when music was willing and able to be slow, elegant, beautiful, rich, and deep.

Curtis Mayfield had a way of reconciling the head, the heart, and the soul that very few writers ever achieve. When social consciousness meets some straight up old-school wooing, you know it’s time to drop the needle down, turn the music up, dim the lights, and dig The Impressions.
