Product Description:

KEEP ON PUSHING/PEOPLE GET READY was originally released as 2 seperate LPs in 1964 and 1965.
Liner Note Author: Peter Burns.
Arranger: Johnny Pate.
Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions made a serious splash right out of the gate with their 1963 self-titled debut, laying down a stylish brand of passionate Northern soul that would continue through the Impressions' career and well into Mayfield's solo work. The group's sophomore release KEEP ON PUSHING, and their 1965 effort PEOPLE GET READY maintained these same high standards.
Those two albums are brought together on this handy twofer, offering a chance for fans to have both gems under one cover. All the tunes are great, but there are so many classics here that the set almost plays like a greatest hits package: "People Get Ready," "Keep on Pushing," "Amen," "You Must Believe Me," "I've Been Trying" are all here. In short, it's hard to go wrong with 24 tracks of sweet, flawless singing and harmonies by Mayfield and the Impressions sweetened by vintage Northern soul arrangements.
