For fans of The Impressions and Curtis Mayfield's early solo outings, this one will hit the spot. The group was recorded by Syl Johnson and Mayfield himself. Although none of the latter's work appears on this collection, there is a cover of The Impressions' "I've Been Trying," which is the track that brought about their later collaborations with the soul legend.
If flawless early 70's production isn't enough for you, singer Clifford Curry's signature yelps will do the trick. Just listen to Curry's distinctive delivery on "I'm Still Here" below. How can you resist?
