Despite this tumult the group released three singles that year the equal of the preceding hot hits. Out in front his incongruous mugging is totally at odds with the feel of the song. Was he stoned? Well yeah, he was.

Murder mysteries were quite a staple in the early days of sound film, and hundreds were made both by the B-programmer divisions of the established studios and by independent production companies that distributed through the states rights market. A fine example of an indie murder mystery from the early 30's period is TAKE THE STAND , which moves quickly, has a colorful cast, has a raw urban feel to it though shot entirely on small sets and with no outside or location shots at all, except for about 15 seconds of stock footage of a hockey game , and keeps one guessing until the end. The great movie tough-guy Jack LaRue plays a muckraking journalist and radio broadcaster, who through his columns and radio broadcasts casts aspersions on all kinds of business people, pillars of society, bankers, gangsters, couples in the society pages, etc. Not by name, but by innuendo. In the first ten minutes of the film, we see a number of his columns on screen, along with the reactions of the people hurt by the claims. Then for the next twenty-five minutes, we see the various victims of the gossip trying to find and threaten LaRue, all of them of course saying or doing something that could later be considered a threat to kill him.

The title read like a concept album and the opener seemed to introduce a larger idea at work , but The Young Mods' Forgotten Story hung together only as the usual read: brilliant late-'60s LP from the Impressions : a few solid songs with a social or inspirational viewpoint and the rest featuring Curtis Mayfield 's continuing exploration of love in all its forms. Mayfield 's romantic songs ranged farther than usual, from the innocent, delicate "The Girl I Find" complete with turtledove cries to a deconstruction of the end of a long affair "Seven Years" to the overbearing "Jealous Man," all with great arrangements provided by veteran Johnny Pate and newcomer Donny Hathaway. Hathaway 's addition didn't alter the Impressions ' sound significantly, though his harmonic expertise and affinity for the church do find their way into a couple of tracks. Only one song, "Wherever You Leadeth Me," found the group treading water it could just as easily have appeared five years earlier.
