There's no doubt that the recordings the Impressions made for ABC Records from 1961 to 1968 were arguably the group's greatest and the ones that certainly made the career of Curtis Mayfield. This best of compilation features 16 rock-solid testimonies to the man's genius, all crafted like the two-minute 30-second R&B symphonies they are. Even on the love songs like "I'm So Proud" and "Talking About My Baby," there's a real sense of pride and purpose to these recordings seldom found in commercial pop, rock or R&B. From 1961's "Gypsy Woman" through "It's All Right," "Keep On Pushing," "Amen," "People Get Ready," and "Woman's Got Soul" right into 1967's "We're a Winner," these sides are the soundtrack for the '60s civil rights movement and as much a part of the history as the events they were the background for. A greatest-hits package that belongs in everybody's collection for a whole variety of good reasons.

Curtis Mayfield, in a League of his Own

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

What's Going On, Marvin ?

In the beginning, there was "What's Going On", one of the greatest soul records ever, released 50 years ago. This is the story of how Marvin Gaye changed the history of the Motown label and of popular music in the 1970s.
