Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Jerry Schollenberger.
Arrangers: Dennis Coffey; Mike Theodore.
The Best of Impact Records is a 25-track collection that features a selection of rare singles released by the Detroit-based indie label. The collection is approriately balanced between garage-rock and soul singles, with the most familiar group being the Detroit Wheels. Other artists on the collection are the Human Beings, Mickey Denton, the Boss Five, the Shades of Blue, the Classmen, the Sheppards, the Inner Circle, Sincerely Yours, the Lollipops, the Sixpense and Rod Riguez. Some of these songs are absolute dynamite, while others are recommended only because of thier sheer rarity, but the disc should be of interest to hardcore '60s rock collectors. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Rating 4.5 Some of the best stuff you've probably never heard Music Lover: from Pointe-Claire, QC CA -- December, 18, 2006

I ordered this disc initially to get "Oh How Happy" by The Shades of Blue, and auditioned the rest with expectation of being unimpressed.

There are a couple of weak spots, but overall, this disc is good bang for the buck! Very "garage" and very Sixties.

I don't agree with Jerry Schollenberger when he states, in the liner notes:"...these hopelessly rare masterpieces thrust you into a new dimension of musical ecstasy!"
That somewhat overdoes it, but if you're looking for a place to sink six bucks, you could do a lot worse.
