Remembering Sam Gooden

Along with fellow Chattanoogan Fred Cash, Sam got his start in Chicago.  Jerry Butler and singer-songwriter Curtis Mayfield rounded out the group during most of the 1960s. The group was active for more than five decades, putting their smooth vocals on durable million sellers like "Gypsy Woman," "It's Alright," "Amen," "People Get Ready" and "Choice of Colors." In the years after Butler and Mayfield left the group, Sam and Fred kept recording and touring with various lead vocalists.

Sam Gooden, founding member of The Impressions, has died

The Impressions formed in the 1950s after Gooden and brothers Richard and Arthur Brooks met Curtis Mayfield and Jerry Butler in Chicago. Butler sang baritone lead on their breakthrough record in 1958, the classic ballad “For Your Precious Love," although many of their hits featured Mayfield's tenor, with Gooden singing bass behind him.

The Impressions remained a top group in the 1960s, known for their gospel-styled harmonies and socially conscious songs.

Remembering Sam Gooden of 1991 Inductees The Impressions, whose music effortlessly bridged R&B with the sound of the civil rights movement

As an original member, Gooden’s uplifting voice was an essential component of The Impressions’ unique vocal blend. Through upbeat hits like “It’s All Right” and spiritually inspired, socially conscious anthems such as “People Get Ready,” Gooden helped carry the group's message and legacy well into the 21st century.
