For no reason other than he is bloody good and we haven't featured him before, here are a couple of early 1970s tracks from the mighty Syl Johnson. One tells of love arriving, the other of love departing.
"I Want To Take You Home (To See Mama)" - Syl Johnson
"Any Way The Wind Blows" - Syl Johnson
As you have probably worked out, Syl is short for Sylvester. But Mr Johnson is not to be confused with this Sylvester.
Or this Sylvester.
