Finally...First Impressions Got Digitized!

My search is over. I waited and hunted down the Impressions's First Impressions LP looking for it anywhere in digital format. My hats off to iTunes. I am a fan of the Impressions and this was one of my favorite albums (released in 1975). The 5th song, Groove, has always been a hit in my circle of friends and never knew why Groove never made a big hit with the public. "Sooner or Later" and "Same Thing It Took" selections are Impression hits, but, let me tell you, this entire song list is right in the middle of The Impressions music era. I'm still excited about being able to carry "Groove" with me on my iPod. It's a dance-while-smiling-and-singing-along song. Try it! You'll love it.

Their style was marked by airy, feather-light harmonies and Mayfield's influentially sparse guitar work, plus, at times, understated Latin rhythms. If their sound was sweet and lilting,...
