商品説明

A fine Impressions' collection, these tracks are the essence of their ABC recordings. Included are a few early dazzlers when Arthur and Richard Brooks blew harmony with Curtis Mayfield, Sam Gooden, and Fred Cash: the post-Jerry Butler Impressions. Check the bass on the haunting Gypsy Woman, and the heartwarming Grow Closer Together, both products of the five-man Impressions. Mayfield's light expressive falsetto excels on these crafty, well-arranged sagas. Little Young Lover, has a bottom-heavy beat topped by smooth harmonies. Minstrel and Queen matches Gypsy Woman's mystique and was a favorite of schoolyard vocalists. A prolific songwriter, Mayfield didn't write weak songs, and was equally proficient on mid-tempo tunes, ballads, and upbeat songs. The group's early tunes gained them a die-hard following but It's All Right showed an knack for crossover; this finger-snapper exploded on R&B stations and received considerable play on pop stations. Talking About My Baby kept the momentum flowing, but they dug a permanent spot in listener's hearts with I'm So Proud, one of R&B's prettiest ballads; as touching as the Flamingos' I Only Have Eyes for You, the Penguins' Earth Angel, and the Miracles' Ooh Baby, Baby. In the mid-'60s, Mayfield revealed his strong social consciousness by putting his feelings on vinyl. In doing so he showed he could make a difference via his uplifting, spirited songs promoting pride and self-respect. African-Americans in the '60s may not have been exposed to powerful, motivating books like Psychocybernatics or Think and Grow Rich, but they had People Get Ready, We're a Winner, We're Rolling On, Amen, Meeting Over Yonder, and Keep On Pushing. The Impressions never forsook ballads and continued to crank teary lamenters like I've Been Trying, I Loved and I Lost, I Can't Stay Away from You (co-led by Fred Cash), I Made a Mistake, and Just One Kiss from You. All are included on this excellent collection. ~ Andrew Hamilton, All Music Guide

もしこのグループがいなかったらジャマイカの音楽...

投稿日:2005/11/25 (金)

もしこのグループがいなかったらジャマイカの音楽シーンは変わっていただろう!多くのグループが手本し、ウェラーズも憧れパクリ訴えられ…THE BANDとボブディランが曲をつくってるときディランにこのグループを聴かせ、こういう歌詞の詩を書いてほしいといい、ディランの歌詞作りにも影響をあたえました

Impressions

The quintessential Chicago soul group, the Impressions' place in R&B history would be secure if they'd done nothing but launch the careers of soul legends Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield. But far more than that, the Impressions recorded some of the most distinctive vocal-group R&B of the '60s under Mayfield's guidance. Their style was marked by airy, feather-light harmonies and Mayfield's influen
