Impressions:Ultimate Collection

It is an immeasurable mixture of brotherhood, faith and business that underscores the story of the Impressions, the most profoundly important male soul stand-up vocal group of all-time. From their brief early history with lead singer Jerry Butler through the love songs and spiritual Black pride messages with Curtis Mayfield at the helm, to their ’70s triumphs and beyond, the Impressions possess an awe-inspiring catalog. This 20-song collection – spanning from 1958 to 1975 – represents the Impressions at their most indelible. Childhood friends Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield spearheaded the Impressions, having sung and traveled together in Chicago with the Northern Jubilee singers and in Curtis’ grandmother Reverend Anna-Bell Mayfield’s Traveling Soul Spiritual Church. Outside of gospel, Mayfield, based on Chicago’s West Side, sang with the Alphatones. When his family moved to the North Side, rehearsing became increasingly strained. Butler convinced a 15-year-old Mayfield to join his group, the Roosters (with Sam Gooden and brothers Arthur and Richard Brooks), because he felt they needed someone who could play guitar and help hone their harmonies. Mayfield dropped out of school to do so and the Roosters became the Impressions when that name was chosen from several in a hat.
