Any Way The Wind Blows: Syl Johnson documentary

Recommended Posts

Can't find a mention of this on Soul Source strangely. Anyone seen it?

There's a screening near me today but at £14.10 a ticket I can't afford it. I imagine it'll be on Netflix in 6 months

 

Blurb- Velvet-voiced soul singer Syl Johnson struggled for decades before leaving the music business in the 1980s to open a Chicago fried-fish chain. Since then, he’s become one of the most-sampled artists in hip-hop. The list of artists who’ve used his 1967 song “Different Strokes” includes Run-DMC, NWA, Public Enemy, the Wu-Tang Clan, the Beastie Boys, Kid Rock, Michael Jackson, Jay Z and Kanye West. With a vibrant soundtrack and an original score by Yo La Tengo, this buoyant documentary – featuring interviews with RZA (the Wu-Tang Clan), Prince Paul (De La Soul), Peanut Butter Wolf (Stones Throw Records), Jazzy Jay (Afrika Bambaataa’s Soulsonic Force) – celebrates one man who can’t stop the music.
