Format: Audio CD
This is a truly wonderful compilation of probably the finest soul group of the 60s - and maybe, in their later incarnations, of the 70s - and an excellent companion to the first 'Definitive Impressions'CD. It is mainly drawn from B sides and LP tracks, but, because of the recent, and excellent, 'abc Rarities' CD there is nothing new to CD here. I would have loved to hear the version of 'can't you see' that is on the vinyl 'Greatest Hits volume 2' and havew a vague suspcion that there is a version of 'Emotions' that hasn't yet made it to CD.
The 'Rarities' liner notes have made teasing references to an unreleased 'live' CD, (one track of which has made it onto an American cheapo vinyl release), and I hope that eventually the Versatile Impressions LP will be coupled with it for a 2 on 1 - although, again, the excellent 'rarities' has the best of that somewhat uneven volume.
As a completist I await the 'lost' gems, is there nothing else 'in the can?' In the meantime I storngly recommend the compelling 2 on 1 Kent CD series of the American LPs to anyone entranced by what they find here.
It is wonderful to see Curtis, Sam and Fred still the subject of releases more than 40 years after they began, and I am still entranced by their sweet soul harmonies, although neither I, nor my mohair suit, are what they were then.....

Great stuff - memorable songs, great group harmonies & Curtis Mayfield on lead! What more could any real soul fan ask for?

Good production, esp. allowing for the age of most of the recordings with some 'message' music that's still topical today.

Stand out tracks include:

Gypsy Woman - slowish but really melodic

I'm The One Who Loves You - more up tempo & catchy as anything

It's Alright - great song, uptempo, positive lyrics, great use of the horns

I'm So Proud - slower pace, very catchy song

Amen - almost gospel like, really catchy chorus

People Get Ready - theres a train coming! Manages to be a message song thats also catchy as hell

Essential purchase full of tunes you'll be humming to yourself for ages!

This band were so highly rated by people who knew the music of the day but never really captured the market share their music merited. Some great songs but also just 1 or 2 not so hot but overall excellent value for money.
