Syl JohnsonBack For A Taste Of Your Love ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
A great second-chapter effort from the legendary Syl Johnson – a sweet little record in which Johnson's raw vocals come into play with the tighter, warmer sound of Hi Records – with amazing results that have made the album a classic for years! The blend here is great – as Johnson's trademark crackle is still very much in place, but the production by Willie Mitchell really helps give him a lot of focus too – especially on some of the more heartfelt numbers, which come across here with a sensual force that Syl might never have hit on his own. Syl wrote a number of the tracks himself too – and titles include "I'm Yours", "Feelin' Frisky", "I Hate I Walked Away", "Wind Blow Her Back My Way", "I Let A Good Girl Go", and "The Love You Left Behind".

Twinight/Numero, Mid/Late 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
All the incredible Syl Johnson cuts released as Twinight 45s back in the day – nicely assembled as an excellent 2LP compilation by the gentlemen of The Numero Group! If you have yet to take a dip into the Syl Johnson oeuvre, let us just say this is gritty, powerful vintage Chicago soul of the finest caliber, and would be a terrific first step into his kingdom. All cut over a 4 year period, written and produced by the man himself. Simply a stellar batch of one time overlooked, now justifiably revered Twinight gems – including the the sample classic "Different Strokes," strident soul gems "Is It Because I'm Black" and "Concrete Reservation" and many more – including "Going To The Shack", "Ode To Soul Man", "Sorry 'Bout That!", "Come On Sock It To Me", "Take Me Back", "Let Them Hang High", "Thank You Baby", "We Do It Together", "Kiss By Kiss", "Everybody Needs Love", "Same Kind Of Thing", "I'll Take Those Skinny Legs" and more. 29 tracks in all!

Syl JohnsonDiamond In The Rough (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. Used ... $21.99
The great Syl Johnson – doing his thing for Hi Records on a record that's more shiny diamond than it is rough – his second album for the label and a truly underappreciated gem from the Chi soul great! Diamond In The Rough is a much sweeter set of tunes than Syl's Chicago work on Twinight, with warmer production by southern soul guru Willie Mitchell to keep his sound much more in the Memphis soul camp – but still a nice album of bluesy stoked sweetness, and proof that Syl was one of the better talents on the Hi label. Titles include "Keeping Down Confusion", "Let Yourself Go", "Could I Be Falling In Love", "Stuck In Chicago", and "I Hear The Love Chimes", "Please, Don't Give Up On Me" and "Diamond In The Rough".

Syl JohnsonDo You Know What Soul Is ... LP
Numero, 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99
Do you know what soul is? Whether you do or not, this incredible collection of Syl Johnson singles cut for for various small labels back in the day is a prime place to find it! The set is a wonderful collection of the raw, hard soul singles Syl recorded in the 60s for a variety of small Chicago labels, really cutting his teeth as independent singer, songwriter, producer triple threat here after some stellar early singles for Federal and before his underground funky soul LP classics a little later on. Amazing stuff! Titles include "She's Alright", "I Know", "This Heart Of Mine", "Half A Love", "Do You Know What Love Is", "Do You Know What Love Is", "Things Ain't Right", "Surrounded", "Falling In Love Again", "I've Been Talked About", "Straight Love, No Chaser" and "I've Got To Get Over". 14 tracks in all.

Federal/Numero, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
A perfect snapshot of early Syl Johnson – with all the 45 sides he cut for Federal at the very end of the 50s and into the first couple years of the 60s! This is incredibly prescient work, building off the formative bedrock of late 50s rhythm & blues, while paving the way for gritty but beautiful soul to come! Even at this early point in his career, Syl's voice is a mature vessel for raw emotion. What a gift it is! Includes Syl's smoking cover of James Brown's "Please, Please, Please", "Teardrops", "They Who Love", "Lonely Man", "His Gift", "I've Got To Find My Baby", "She's So Fine – I Just Gotta Make Her Mine", "I Wanna Know", "Well Oh Well", "I'm Looking For My Baby" and more. 14 tracks in all.

Numero, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really really amazing package – the full story of the early years of Syl Johnson – one of the funkiest soul singers to ever come from Chicago! Syl's music has become the stuff of legend over the years – initially collected in rare funky 45s and two even rarer albums – then sampled heavily, compiled frequently, and spun out to a huge global audience that Johnson never had back in the day. Yet throughout the years, things were never done properly – and certainly with any sense of history or continuity that would unite the music – until now. The box and booklet alone are completely beautiful – the latter filled with vintage photos, personal recollections by Syl, and some great Numero writing – not to mention much-needed details on the recordings within. The CDs come in a very cool LP-styled jacket – and the whole thing slides together as sweetly as the funky music within. None of the Hi Records material is included – just material from labels that include Twilight/Twinight, King/Federal, Shama, TMP/Ting, Zachron, One-Derful, Cha Cha, Special Agent, and P-Vine – including a number of tracks never issued before.

Twinight/Numero, 1969. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The funkiest album that Syl Johnson ever recorded – filled with short, tight cuts that play more like a stack of funky 45s than the standard soul album of the time! The record draws from the great run of singles that Syl cut for Twinight Records at the end of the 60s – some of the hardest soul coming out of Chicago at the time, with a gritty feel that's right up there with some of James Brown's best late 60s work – or even better, some of the other obscure acts working in the American underground at the time. A few tunes are familiar from their popularity as classic 45s – but the album's got lots more wonderful numbers that are lesser-known – and all of them are great! Titles include the classic Syl Johnson sample cut "Different Strokes" – plus "Dresses Too Short", "I Can Take Care of Business", "Soul Drippin", "Sorry Bout Dat", "Same Kind Of Thing", and "Come On Sock It To Me".

Syl's music has become the stuff of legend over the years – initially collected in rare funky 45s and two even rarer albums – then sampled heavily, compiled frequently, and spun out to a huge global audience that Johnson never had back in the day. Yet throughout the years, things were never done properly – and certainly with any sense of history or continuity that would unite the music – until now. The folks at Numero have really outdone themselves this time – not just by including both CD (4 of them) and LP (6 of those) versions of the music in the set – but also by coming up with one of the most attractive, uniquely packaged records we've ever seen! The box and booklet alone are completely beautiful – the latter filled with vintage photos, personal recollections by Syl, and some great Numero writing – not to mention much-needed details on the recordings within. And the LPs each come in their own jackets – two of which mimic the original Twinight albums, the other four of which create Shama, Trip, and Federal label albums of Johnson's music – records that didn't exist back in the 60s, but which look as if they've come from a time machine! The CDs come in a very cool LP-styled jacket – and the whole thing slides together as sweetly as the funky music within.

✨✧ Sly JohnsonMic Buddah ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's Sly Johnson – not Syl Johnson, the Chicago soul singer – but this Johnson's definitely got an approach that lives up to the classic soul style of the cover! The music's a wonderful mix of deep soul vocals and contemporary production that owes a fair bit to hip hop as well – the kind of cool, crisp sound we're used to hearing from the American underground – but which comes across equally well here on a set recorded in Paris! There's definitely a few rhymes on the set, but Sly's approach is to sing instead of speak on most numbers – over heavy beats, nicely crispy rhythms, and some sweet wider washes of soulful sounds! The set features guest instrumentation from Erik Truffaz and Magic Malik – but Johnson's clearly the star of the set, and shines wonderfully on tunes that include "Magique", "All The Time", "Les Fleurs Du Mal", "Music", "Wet", "Good Morning", "Simply Beautiful", "Womenarium", and "Nasty Girl".

Ken BootheBest Of Ken Boothe ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
One of the most soulful voices in Jamaican music – presented here in a wonderful collection that includes some of Ken Boothe's early rocksteady material, then runs through his bigger famous cuts of the 70s! Ken wasn't nearly as big a hit over here as artists like Jimmy Cliff or Bob Marley, but his vocals here easily match theirs for sheer, raw, soulful power – and maybe show an even more direct inspiration from American music, especially on the earlier cuts – or his great covers of cuts by artists like Syl Johnson and Bill Withers. Boothe can also sing as sweetly with a groove as his bigger 70s reggae counterparts, but knows how to draw an edge when the song calls for it – and this 40 track set is overflowing with Trojan Records gems from the vocalist – with titles that include "Crying Over You", "Freedom Street", "Satta Massagana", "Nature Planned It", "Everything I Own", "Silver Words", "I Wish It Could Be Peaceful Again", "Drums Of Freedom", "Grandma", "Moving Away", "I'm Not For Sale", "Somewhere", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Is It Because I'm Black", "So Nice", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "You Left The Water Running", "Live Good", "Your Feeling & Mine", "Left With A Broken Heart", and "You're No Good".

Great work from the man with the money on his suit! "Diff'rent Strokes" has a nice hard soul sound, with lots of vocals, and a sound that's very similar to Syl Johnson's big track of the same name. The real groover, though, is "The Charge", which has a raucous shouting sound, and a crazy cowbell that slams through the whole thing – madness! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Twinight/Numero, 1972. Near Mint- (reissue)... $6.99
A Chi-soul killer from Nate Evans – a hard-burning track that features great production from the legendary Syl Johnson! "Pardon My Innocent Heart" has a heartbreaking quality that's really wonderful – an almost southern soul sort of approach, but touched with a bit more Chicago sophistication in the arrangements – all held together beautifully by Nate's proud, righteous vocals! "Main Squeeze" has a really classic loping Chicago soul groove – a style that's almost more like work on Brunswick Records from the time – as Nate's vocals soar high and wide, supported by a female backup group! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Twinight, Late 60s. Good ... $3.99
Obscure and wonderful! The single's one of the many rare sides produced by Syl Johnson for Twinight, and it's very much in the vein of his own work! "Breaking Point" begins with fast fast choppy guitar – riffing away madly, while horns blare over the top, and Johnny sings in a sweet raspy voice. "Women" is very nice, too – and has a west side Tyrone Davis sort of feel to it. Johnny was a great singer – right up there with Tyrone and Syl, and it's a shame he never cut a full LP! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
Not just singles from the great OV Wright – but also a few live tracks and rare demo titles as well! OV's a hell of a singer – one with a voice that matches all the best on the southern scene of the time – and a great companion to some of the best deep soul material on the Hi Records label by artists like Otis Clay or Syl Johnson. And like both of them, Wright had recorded previously, but was able to find a new sort of presence at Hi – a more mature mode and sparkling Memphis production that really brought the most out of his wonderful vocals! Two of the tracks here – "Rhymes" and "Without You" – were only ever singles for Hi, and never came out on album. Two more demo tracks are wonderful – "A Fool Can't See The Light" and "I'm Gonna Be A Big Man Someday" – both very good numbers recorded with a grittier feel than usual. CD also features the cuts "Into Something", "The Time We Have", "Precious Precious", "The Bottom Line", and "We're Still Together" – plus live tracks that include "Love & Happiness", "Ace Of Spades", and "Precious Precious".

The package features work by some of the label's bigger stars, plus some of the more obscure artists on the Memphis soul powerhouse – and it's got no trouble with genre-bending, in order to provide a wide picture of the Memphis scene. Titles include "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" by Ann Peebles, "Trying To Live My Life Without You" by Veniece, "Slip Away" by Don Bryant, "Hello, How Have You Been?" by Willie Clayton, "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Ann Peebles, "Rhymes" by OV Wright, "As The Years Go Passing By" by Joe Lee Carter, "Take Me To The River" by Syl Johnson, "Precious Precious" by Otis Clay, and "You've Got My Mind Messed Up" by Quiet Elegance.

Way more than just a typical collection of rare funk and soul – as the selections here not only meet the stunningly high standards of the BGP label – but they've also been sampled in more recent years for hip hop records and other contemporary recordings! Essentially, you've got the best of both worlds – vintage funk from the late 60s and early 70s – brought together in a great collection – and work that's gone onto form the blueprint for contemporary urban sounds as well – which means you'll probably recognize some or part of most of these songs from their use in more contemporary recordings. Nearly every cut's been sampled at least more than once – and titles include "Blind Alley" by The Emotions, "Chick A Boom" by Pazant Brothers, "Eva" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulson, "Take Yo Praise" by Camille Yarbrough, "Thinking Single" by The Counts, "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson, "Ike's Mood" by Isaac Hayes, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene.

VariousWelcome To The Club – Tough Blues & R&B Shuffles From Chicago's West Side ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great collection of work from the underside of the Chicago recording scene of the 60s – tracks from the rougher, bluesier west side scene of the time! The work on the set comes from the Federal/King catalog, and not from Chicago labels – and most of it was produced by Sonny Thompson, in a style that's like his own R&B work, which always played big with Chicago crowds during the period. Most of the tunes date from the early 60s, but follow in modes that have lots of rougher 50s touches – often recorded with some nice echoey production that does a really great job of bringing out the looser spirit of the work. Titles include "I Resign From Your Love" and "Well Oh Well" by Syl Johnson, "Gibble Gobble" and "Got A Feelin" by Willie Wright & The Sparklers, "You're Welcome To The Club" and "When You Move You Lose" by Lee Shot Williams, "Twist Like This" and "I Was Gone" by Eddie Clearwater, "How Long Has It Been" by Jesse Anderson, and "I'm Tired Of Being Tossed Around" by Danny Overbea.

The set's one of a number of excellent Hi collections that came out at a time when the label was getting some renewed recognition – and it does a great job of digging deep into the catalog of the 60s and 70s, to come up with some incredible work that goes way beyond some of the label's oft-compiled hits! Titles include "What Do You Mean" by Gene Miller, "What Are You Doing To My World" by Don Bryant, "Is It Over" by David Duke, "Do You Love Me" by Quiet Elegance, "What More Do You Want From Me" by Venice Starks, "You Ask Me" by Jean Plum, "Could I Be Fallin In Love" by Syl Johnson, "What Am I Gonna Do With Myself" by Al Green, "Won't You Try Me" by Ann Peebles, "Who Will The Next Fool Be" by The Memphians, and "Can I Change My Mind" by Don Bryant.

No question about it – Hi Records was one of the greatest labels for southern soul music in the 1970s – not just hits by big names, but also loads of quality work by lesser-known acts! This excellent collection presents the full spectrum of Hi – by offering up a huge number of obscure singles next to a few more familiar tracks – all in a sweetly warm blend that has plenty of touches from legendary producer Willie Mitchell, easily one of the most important forces at Hi next to the artists. Titles include "Will You Be My Man" by Quiet Elegance, "What Made You Change" by Eddie McGee, "What Have You Done To My Heart" by Imported Moods, "Have You Been Making Out OK" by Quiet Elegance, "Hello How Have You Been" by Willie Clayton, "Did You Ever Have The Blues" by Don Bryant, "Who's Gonna Love You" by Syl Johnson, "Baby Please" by Norm West, "How Can I Believe In You" by Known Facts, "How's Your Lovelife" by Quiet Elegance, and "What Is This Feeling" by Al Green.

VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
Hard-grooving R&B from a host of hip talents from the 50s – music that's a bit blues, a bit jazz, and which goes past the obvious tunes you'd usually find on a collection like this! The cuts were chosen by the folks at the Cole Slaw Club in Germany – a specialist spot to step to old school grooves like these – and the sounds are a very cool mix of jukebox jive, groovy instrumentals, and some deeper-voiced tunes that really give the collection a lot of depth! The collection's not afraid to step between different genres in search of a swinging groove – in the best Bear Family/Cree Records style – and titles include "I Changed My Mind Jack" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Spider In The Web" by The Dooley Sisters, "Big John" by Richard Berry, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver's Orchestra, "Salome Twist" by The Carroll Brothers, "Talk About Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Sugar Diabetes" by Eddie Banks, "Stolen Love" by Miss Lavell, "Sweet Little Love Like You" by Al Brown & The Tune Toppers, "Dance Of The Goony Bird" by Pat Miller, "Summertime" by Sylvia Mora, and "My Old Man" by Buddy & Ella Johnson.

✨✧ George DukeAura Will Prevail ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $23.99
The aura here is spreading wide – as George Duke really grows his sound strongly from the early years, and takes hold of a whole host of cosmic influences! The record's one of Duke's biggest for MPS – a beautiful balance between jazzy fusion and spacey soul – served up with help from an array of great singers and players from the west coast scene. Duke's still stretching out plenty on keyboards – but never in a too-jamming, too-indulgent way – always sensitive enough to never mess up the groove, and always with a sense of space and timing that never showed up this well in his later records. Players include Airto on percussion, Alphonso Johnson on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Duke himself on more keyboards than we could ever hope to list here! Vocals are by Sylvia St James, Gee Janzen, and Kathy Woehrle – as well as Duke himself – and titles include "Foosh", "For Love", "Uncle Remus", "Fools", "The Aura", "Enchinda's Arf", "Floop De Loop", and "Dawn".
