Some Definitive Impressions

Definitive Impressions is one of those career spanning anthologies that the great Kent Soul label specialises in.
Twenty eight songs and everyone a cracker from the Doo Wop of 1961 through to 1968 and featuring the seamless and indeed peerless harmonies of  Curtis Mayfield, Sam Gooden and Fred Cash.
It was a bit of a dilemma in deciding what to choose but in the end I went for the two  most obvious ones on the basis that you can't improve upon perfection.
You will not hear two better songs today or possibly for the rest of the week.
As the album sleeve says defining moments in 60's Soul from Chicago's greatest group

The Impressions - Keep On Pushing

The Impressions - People Get Ready


  1. Just about every syllable of this post is on the nose. Peerless stuff.

  3. Made a good impression on me too.
