7-inch, Vinyl record

A great little box set of Syl Johnson sides from Numero's epic, jaw-droppingly far-reaching Complete Mythology package! The purpose here was not only put together a beautiful, more portable vinyl sampler of the amazing 6LP/4CD complete set, they also did it to represent the breadth of Syl's soul genius and mastery of a range of styles over years. Honestly, we can't imagine how difficult it must have been to pick standout tracks to feature here, but however many blood-vessels in the brain they must have busted to choose the best, it delivers perfectly. Packaged in a white box that's sealed with custom Syl Johnson craft tape! "Do You Know What Love Is" b/w "The Love I Found in You", "My Funky Band" b/w "Sockin’ Soul Power", "Double Whammy" b/w "Wiggle In Your Hips", "Right On" b/w "Pt. 2", "Try My Love Again" b/w "All I Need Is Someone Like You". (limited edition 5 X 45s box set.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

I Can Remember/Standing On The Outside
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The bump here is a gentle one – a cool slow funk start to a track that turns out to be just the kind of mellow harmony number we love so much! The flipside's equally great – and both cuts have a feel that reminds us of those east coast groups who could be hard and sweet at the same ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3x7inch
Messed up funky soul from the Chicago scene – a beautiful package of rare singles from Little Ed & The Soundmasters! The style here is a bit hard to describe – as Ed and crew were schooled in blues, but brought up during the 60s soul underground – and clearly managed to pick ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Twinight/Numero, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A lost gem on the legendary Twinight label – and one of the few singles cut by this excellent falsetto soul singer! "Not Too Cool" is a sweet sad ballad with incredible strings and gentle production – but even better is "Nevermore" – one of those haunting ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wait For Me/Just Fun
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy
The Brown Bombers come on here with plenty of firepower – soaring with the groove on "Wait For Me" – which has an upbeat Northern soul groove and some great harmonies to match! "Just Fun" follows in a similar spirit – an instrumental groove that echoes the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent (UK), 1964/1967. New Copy (reissue)
We've never heard Jackie Shane before, but he's a hell of a great singer here – one with an almost gospelly sort of exclamation – served up over a Hammond-heavy groove with a very secular vibe! A young Luther Ingram sings "Oh Baby Don't You Weep" – another tune with its ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA/Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
A killer cut by The Metros – one of Detroit soul's best secrets in the 60s! The track is amazing – dipping, turning, and soaring with this groove that even knocks out most Motown classics – and it's backed here by an equally great number, making for one hell of a 45! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Handwriting On The Wall/I'm Still In Need
Electraphonic, 2012. New Copy
Memphis soul legend Percy Wiggins joins the Bo-Keys – who help him cut one of his greatest records in years! The Keys drop their groove nicely for Percy's vocals – hitting this sweet compressed sound that's almost like Hi Records in the 70s – a perfect fit for the snakey lyrics ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy
A sweet soulful stepper from Paul Johnson – a cut that feels like it was lifted right from lost 70s tapes from the LA scene – right down to its jazzy, Steely Dan-styled hook! The soul talk mix is great, but we especially love what Dego and Kaidi do to the tune – crackling the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Millionaire/Torture
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderful lost tune from the great Chuck Jackson – served up here with a darkly stepping groove that's somewhere in the best Drifters territory from the early 60s – but topped with Chuck's great iceman vocals! Maxine Brown belts it out on "Torture" – a tune that's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent/Pied Piper (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy (reissue)
A Detroit killer from Tony Hester – a tune that has this great midtempo stepping vibe, warm female vocals alongside Tony's lead, and a heartbreaking quality that still gets to us – spin after spin! The flipside features another smoker from the great Freddy Butler – a tune with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent (UK), 1965/1973. New Copy (reissue)
The lovely Ty Karim sounds great here – really stunning us on "You Just Don't Know" – an upbeat Nothern Soul number that mixes hard vibes and Hammond with her wonderfully crackling lead vocal! "Lighten Up" is of later vintage, but equally great – a mellow ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Can You Win/One More Chance
Kent (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy (reissue)
A real stunner from Charlene & The Soul Serenaders – a cut that's more than wonderful enough with the lady's vocals in the lead, but which also gets a nicely deep background from the combo – with a cool chromatic guitar that brings a great vibe to the groove! "One More ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
