Erstwhile Impression, Leroy Hutson's catalogue has become increasingly coveted over the years and this compilation collects his Curtom recordings together with two newly discovered tracks including Positive Forces which is available as an instant grat track when pre-ordering the album. Native of Newark New Jersey, Leroy Hutson grew up In a part of the world that spawned many of Soul's all-time groups, amongst them, The Parliaments and the Manhattens. Smitten by the music he was to join a local quartet, The Nu-Tones and despite never recording the youthful Hutson experienced the thrill of being a singer. On splitting up, Hutson found himself studying in Washington DC and once more in the company of supremely talented artists including Carla Thomas and future collaborator Don Hathaway. Various recordings came and went with little chart success before, along with Hathaway he became central to a group of singer, songwriters and players under the tutelage of Curtis Mayfield at his Curtom label a relationship that initiated Hathaway's chart topping career when the pair co wrote the all-time classic and million seller The Ghetto. https://youtu.be/y-0zf2emwF8 https://youtu.be/dGVaoBCDMAA https://youtu.be/FITV-9lndc8 https://youtu.be/ip0HosjjuMU https://youtu.be/QICehZpcsYk https://youtu.be/4L5Qn4dI9AE https://youtu.be/CjbdUgvjJaA https://youtu.be/TY831GV3cUk https://youtu.be/SqPuXNB0bi4 https://youtu.be/0_TSTWvSZH0 https://youtu.be/2NEZA42juDc https://youtu.be/Go4tlCdpujc https://youtu.be/VQfhXB5UBdc https://youtu.be/lpVS4pidHhg https://youtu.be/iwynaWTGsbg https://youtu.be/IqfRcYDApns
