This is an Ultimate Collection for the Impressions, not Curtis Mayfield, which are two separate things, no matter how closely intertwined their histories are. This begins with "For Your Precious Love," when Jerry Butler was the lead singer, and ends with two tracks that he neither wrote nor sang, giving a good basic history of the band's career from 1958 to 1975. Not every great Impressions song is here, but nearly ever song here is great (the quality does dip a bit toward the end); this certainly delivers a good summary of -- and even introduction to -- the group, which was one of the greatest of its time, regardless of genre. That said, it won't give you everything you need -- but it certainly will get your love started. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Artist Overview
Although the Impressions will forever be associated with Curtis Mayfield, they were an important stand-alone musical entity both with Mayfield and without. The original incarnation of the group, formed in the late 1950s, was led by the deep-voiced Jerry Butler; however, the group truly made its mark under the guidance of Mayfield. Infusing their light harmonies and gentle, soulful swing with a fiery urgency born out of the struggle for civil rights, the Impressions became arguably the most important soul group of the '60s. Mayfield's political vision reached its pinnacle in his solo work in the '70s, but no other ensemble has ever mixed artistry and social commentary as flawlessly as the Impressions.
