You must get this collection

This is a huge collection of Johnson's recordings in Chicago, researched and remastered by the Numero Group. Order the box set; you'll get 6LPs, the CD version of the recordings, and a book of photos and interviews. Syl Johnson was almost a lost legend, but this music still sounds fresh and full of life. The recordings sound fantastic, and the packaging is up to the usual Numero Group standards of excellence. This is one of the essential releases of 2010.

Syl Johnson is still performing; order the Numero Group Eccentric Soul Revue CD to hear him live in 2009.
