Definitive Impressions Part 2 The Impressions


60s Soul
Catalogue Id:

This release speaks or sings for itself. Given the success and critical acclaim showered upon our best selling DEFINITIVE IMPRESSIONS, Kent CDKEND 923, we had a hard act to follow.

However definitive that first volume may have been (it had all the biggest hits) there must have been a few tracks at the back of each Imps fan's minds that they would have loved to have seen on there. In my case You Ought To Be In Heaven, No One Else, This Must End and It's All Over were prime candidates and I could think of plenty of great LP tracks that I'd have loved to have had on one handy package.

To be able to trawl through the 60s LPs of this magnificent group was a real pleasure and I got to discover tracks like A Woman Who Loves Me and That's What Love Will Do which I had previously skipped over. I'm Getting Ready, Let Me Tell The World and Love's A Comin' have long been stone favourites of mine and though the choices were totally personal I hope I've included the best of the rest-.-which in the Impressions' case is considerable.

The raison d'être of this release is listening pleasure, all the tracks have already been issued on Kent CDs so this is aimed at soul fans who need to hear more of arguably the greatest soul group ever, but don't need to have every track of every album. In 1965 EMI issued the Impressions Big Sixteen" on HMV and followed it up four years later with a "Volume 2" on their Stateside label. With pleasing symmetry we've now repackaged our DEFINITIVE IMPRESSIONS CD with the same photo as that first LP and followed the second album cover on this volume.

This is one Kent purchase you can leave on the car stereo, by the bottle of scotch next to the mini system - or try talking your local landlord into putting it on to the pub jukebox. It's designed for repeated listening rather than your music library."
