THE IMPRESSIONS: COMPLETE A AND B SIDES 1961-1968
A 60-track Curtis Mayfield penned collection out this week featuring 30 A sides on one CD and their respective flips on another, selling for less than ten quid. No duff years, no iffy periods, just one glorious, graceful touch of heavenly soul after another. Sheer brilliance from beginning to end.
Curtis Mayfield. The closest agnostics get to God.
