Syl Johnson - (In)Complete Mythology - Numero Group (2010)

So I just had to get this killer package of vinyl and cd's from the Numero Group for Christmas, a delve into one of funk's lesser known characters who has been sampled by many in the Hip Hop scene most notably 'Different Strokes', 'Concrete Reservation' and 'Is It cause I'm Black'. Some killer rock-a-billy/funk stuff unearthed, rusty soul and straight up belting funk. I selected my faves from the comp and have included some faves that where not present. Loving it.

I've Got Love

I Need Love

(Shes So Fine) I Just Gotta Make Her Mine

Please Please Please

Straight Love, No Chaser

Try Me (45 Version)

Do You Know What Love Is

Things Ain't Right

Come On Sock It To Me

Different Strokes

Soul Drippin'

My Funky Band

Sockin' Soul Power

Dresses Too Short

I've Got the Real Thing

I Can Take Care Of Homework

Going to the Shack

Is it Because I'm Black

Concrete Reservation

Come Together

Walk a Mile in My Shoes

Right On

One Way Ticket to Nowhere

We Do It Together

That's Why

Get Ready

Trying To Get To You


Don't do it

That's Just My Luck

I'm Yours

I Hear The Love Chimes
