"Even though this is probably the weakest of the discs in this series of four, it is still rather good. I am a huge fan of abc-era Impressions records, but I have to say, I had only heard three of the tracks from these two albums prior to having purchased this. There are a couple of tracks here that have been haunting me like the devil for the last few days, and I think everyone should hear them...they are "Isle of the Sirens" which recaptures some of that eerie storytelling Mr. Mayfield had abandoned after that first album...it has a ghostly production and lyrics that put me in mind of all those great prewar roots recordings. Simply amazing. "Let Me Tell the World" is a great ballad worthy of any Impressions best-of collection...I cannot believe I haven't heard it til now. The only bum tracks are the ill-chosen covers here of "100 Lbs. of Clay" and "Up Up and Away", otherwise, this is flawless. Get yours today."
