The Impressions

Without a doubt, one of my all time favorite bands and albums. I also picked up a copy of This Is My Country from Groove Merchant Records in San Francisco, which is just as good. Soul music doesn't get much better than this. The influence of Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions spread far and wide - a lot of Jamaican bands were influenced by their 3 part harmonies, often covering the songs with respect to their social consciousness. Here's a group that really had something to say with their music during the turbulent times of the 60's and the civil rights movement.
