THE IMPRESSIONS - MY DECEIVING HEART


Here I am, sitting here wondering what today's post was gonna be and I couldn't stop thinking about yesterday's Major Lance posting. Then it brought me to how underrated Chicago soul can be when held within the likes of Detroit and Memphis.

While it would be impossible to play favorites, so many of the records that move me the most were made by that incredible ring of Chi town folks that included Curtis Mayfield, Syl Johnson, Gene Chandler and all of the many artists the above produced or spawned.

So here's a beautiful, late period Impressions track from right around the time Curtis Mayfield went solo.

from 1969...

Great song - I particularly loved Curtis Mayfield's guitar work.
