Bandera Doo Wop / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import, 2PC)
Of the 26 tracks featured, 22 are appearing on legal CD for the first time, ten are previously unreleased and all have been remastered to give the best possible sound. The CD is the latest in our Deluxe limited edition series and only 1500 will be pressed. It is only fitting that much of this collection should be devoted to the Impressions featuring Jerry Butler, without whose big hit 'For Your Precious Love' the Bandera label might never have got off the ground. Of the 11 Impressions tracks contained here, seven are previously unissued. On nine of the titles the line-up is Jerry Butler, Curtis Mayfield and Sam Gooden, with Fred Cash replacing Butler on the other two.
