Fan The Fire

LP (Item 414492) Chi Sound, 1981 — Condition: Very Good
The Impressions fan the fire here with a great mix of grooving rhythms and super-tight harmonies – really well-crafted vocals that prove that the group are still light years ahead of most of their younger contemporaries! The Impressions are a quartet this time around – with the trio of Sam Gooden, Fred Cash, and Reggie Torian re-joined by Nate Evans – whose leads really help things soar here, in a great match for the upbeat, positive arrangements of Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders. With Carl Davis and Eugene Record at the helm on production, the album's overflowing with great Chicago soul talent – and tracks include "Take Everything", "I Surrender", "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love", "Love Love Love", "Fan The Fire", and "For Your Precious Love 81".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has wear, cutout notch, marker & pen, patchy stuck-on paper spotting.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
