The Impressions: The Fabulous Impressions (HMV CSD.3631)

uncredited writer, Beat Instrumental, October 1967

AT ALL too rare intervals, the Impressions release an album which showcases their beautiful, and original, vocal sound. The gentlemen responsible — Curtis Mayfield, Sam Gooden and Fred Cash — convey a unique blend of harmony which is particularly distinctive on their latest single 'You Always Hurt Me'. Lead singer Mayfield, composer of all but one of the titles, shows a poetical quality, and the lyrics of these songs are based on life's experiences and the lessons to be learned from them.
