The Impressions – People Get Ready
Kent 1965

The first encounter I had with Curtis Mayfield was through his
splendid album ‘Superfly’. Before Curtis’ solo career he perfor-
med with the Impressions. They made a bunch of nice records
of which today their 1965 album ‘People Get Ready’. Delightful
vocal harmonies, atmospheric soul sound, I love it ..

De eerste keer dat ik Curtis Mayfield hoorde was via zijn geweldige
‘Superfly’ album. Voordat hij in 1970 solo ging was hij deel van de
Impressions. Zij maakten een stapel heerlijke platen waarvan van-
daag hun in 1965 uitgebrachte ‘People Get Ready’. prachtige
vokalen, atmosferische soul sound, ik ben er dol op ..

    My most favourite musician. Have seen Curtis live twice in Germany, in 1988 in Wuppertal, and 1990 in Düsseldorf. This year marks the 20th anniversary of his death (boxing day).
