Album Review

Collectables' 2003 budget-line release Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, part of the label's Priceless Collection series, is a brief ten-track sampler that contains one of Major Lance's big hits — the title track — and a selection of other material he cut during the '60s. Most of these songs were written (and some produced) by Mayfield and had been hits for the Impressions — "It's All Right," "Gypsy Woman," "I'm the One Who Loves You," "Gotta Get Away," "That's What Mama Say" — while the rest are firmly within the sophisticated, easy-rolling Chicago soul groove patented by Mayfield.
