On Impulse!/There Will Never Be Another You

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This set combines two of Sonny Rollins' LPs for Impulse Records, There Will Never Be Another You and On Impulse!, both of which were originally issued in 1965.

On Impulse! is a much stronger outing, with Rollins turning out signature takes of "On Green Dolphin Street" (there's also a version of "On Green Dolphin Street" on There Will Never Be Another You, and "Three Little Words" also appears in both of these set lists) and "Hold 'Em Joe," and three other pieces with a solid quartet featuring pianist Ray Bryant, bassist Walter Booker, and drummer Mickey Roker. Combined, these two LPs show us where Rollins was in 1965. He had a restless soul, though, and bigger and more exploratory recordings were waiting around the corner.
