This double CD collection is taken from the time that the Imperials spent signed to Word. The male quartet formed in 1964, although they didn't sign to Word until 1976. They have supported many other artists including Elvis Presley, as well as having a very successful career of their own. The Imperials' work has a gospel feel to it with mellow tracks like "Living Without Your Love" and "One More Song For You" which starts with a resonant keyboard backing. It also has many upbeat creations like "I'm Forgiven" and "The Trumpet Of Jesus". Overall, it's superbly produced pop with a definite '80s feel to it, but hey, it's good to relive that era occasionally! If you remember the Imperials and have worn out your vinyl this is for you.
