What do you get when you cross the legendary group harmony of the Impressions, with the savvy production stylings of Daptone’s very own master of ceremonies and guitar dynamo, Binky Griptite? Easy, you get one of the finest collaborations that has ever been realized onto 7 inches of high quality vinyl.

"Rhythm" the aptly titled A-Side, is a Curtis Mayfield penned tune that was a big hit for Major Lance in the Mid-Sixties. The Impressions revive this classic with their iconic sophisticated harmonies and a new horn arrangement by "The 4th Impression", Johnny Pate himself, that moves the song along at a laid back, yet dance friendly pace.

You just can't beat the 1960's Impressions sound and Curtis Mayfield's songs from any era.

This version isn't 'too different' from that original sound ........ so everything is good.

I like this, obviously by the semi original group, but if you like interpretations of Curtis mayfields work try 'the carter baron' by Oddisee, fabulous track....

I'll be picking this up as soon as the shops open Monday...

A very worthwhile release from the Fabulous Impressions.

 

Worth mentioning that the group will be performing at the Prestatyn Soul Weekender in March next year (2014) and will be performing this number!

Also, I wouldn't exactly call the group "semi-original", at least wiith a negative connotation. This is the lineup since about 1970, pretty much since curtis left to go solo (ignoring a small period of less than a year where donny hathaway sang lead). it's not like curtis died and reggie replaced him. plus reggie is an awesome dude and a great singer.

just clarifying, the group definitely isn't the original group with curtis, i just wanted to make sure people weren't discouraged thinking it was a "fake" group or something. they have a long history. thanks a lot.

Bob, as  mentioned above, it was Leroy Hutson that replaced Curtis wasn't it? Then Leroy left and Ralph Johnson and Reggie Torian joined for the First Impressions LP around '73 onwards?

 

Did Reggie Torian record before he joined the Impressions?

I already admitted my stupid mistake saying Donnie instead of Leroy.

 

However, Ralph did not join until after Reggie joined. Listen to my interview with Reggie, it's super interesting. Reggie also previously recorded as a member of the Enchanters on Golden Ear.

What was the line up for the Cotillion tracks ?

Sam, Fred, Reggie + Nate Evans (the "This Time With Feeling" guy).

Come on our kid, if you don't know the full history of the greatest soul group EVER , you're no kind of real soul fan  :yes:

Bob,

       so were Ralph's vocals actually featured on any / many of the tracks featured on the Cotillion LP ?

He didn't get a name check on the album sleeve, it was Nate who was listed as a member of the group and figured in the group photo that adorned the album's front cover.

I think I'd have been very pissed off if I had sung on some of the tracks but not received my due credit.

I actually think Ralph sang on most of the songs.
