The Impressions: This Is My Country (1968) Curtom CRS-8001

The Impressions
This Is My Country
Curtom CRS-8001
1968
Producer: Curtis Mayfield
Rating: **** (Recommended)

Impressions’ first album for Mayfield’s Curtom label.  The title track and “They Don’t Know” foreshadow the direction Mayfield would soon take, but for the most part this continues with the sound they’d established with ABC-Paramount.  The set is written by Mayfield with two cuts co-written with Donny Hathaway–another pioneer of the social-themed soul of the 70s.
