Sorry Bout Dat - Syl Johnson

Recommended Posts

Sorry bout dat - Syl Johnson.

Picked up this little powerhouse at a car boot two weeks ago and I just got round to playing it. It's a bit knackered and I guess it's not a high ticket disc, but what a good groove.

Anyone ever imagine hearing it out?

Prefer the flip (Different Strokes), but prefer 'Try Me' (the version on the yellow label, not the Blue/White issue with 'I Feel An Urge' on the flip) to either of them. I'd have thought 'Try Me' would be a stronger candidate for playing out, which I'm sure it does but probably not en masse.

Try me is getting a fair few plays out of late ranting_1.gif

Could see this rcord courting favor with the mod fraternity.....very hard edged with the usual powerful vocal from Mr Johnson........

He slipped quite easily from uptempo cheery southern soul to social comment before Marvin and Sly Stone made ghetto songs "chic"......

For fans of deep soul I suggest....."I'm talkin 'bout freedom" .....

Very true. I thought Mod when I heard it. Chunky and cheap.
