Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions: Big Sixteen

Bob Fisher, New Musical Express, March 1975

IT'S PLEASING to see Anchor pushing out this classic compilation, as it's been unavailable for several years. It was originally issued on the old HMV label in 1966, in mono. This reissue is in stereo, though thankfully the quality of the tracks has not been affected. Also, the original cover photograph has been retained.

Total word count of piece: 618
