For a deeper look, check out the many original album reissues, including This is My Country,The Young Mods’ Forgotten Story,Check Out Your Mind!, and Times Have Changed. For a listen to their earlier years, check out The Complete A & B Sides 1961-1968. But for an introduction to Mayfield’s last years with the group, and their post-Mayfield singles, this is a great place to start.
Gospel also informed what became perhaps the best-known Impressions hit, 1965's "People Get Ready"; if its lyrics weren't overtly political, Mayfield's intent was clear, as the song became an anthem of transcendence for the civil rights movement and an oft-covered soul standard. The group recorded prolifically in 1965, but their commercial fortunes dropped off over the next couple of years. 1970's Check Out Your Mind was Mayfield's final album with the Impressions, but the group remained on Curtom after his departure, and he continued to write and produce some of their material. Mayfield was replaced on lead vocals by Leroy Hutson, who debuted on LP with 1972's Times Have Changed.
