Syl Johnson - Dresses Too Short (1968)


1. Dresses Too Short 2:44
2. I Can Take Care of Business 3:00
3. Different Strokes 2:20
4. Soul Drippin' 2:24
5. Fox Hunting on the Weekend 2:32
6. Ode to Soul Man 2:30
7. Come on Sock It to Me 2:26
8. I'll Take Those Skinny Legs 1:57
9. Try Me 2:02
10. Same Kind of Thing 2:21
11. I've Got the Real Thing 2:40
12. Sorry 'Bout Dat! 2:14

Basically I just love this guy's voice. Musically, the upbeat southern soul leads to comparisons to Otis and Wilson Pickett, but he just sounds different. It won't change the way you listen to music, but it doesn't really need to. 12 tracks, some better than others, but not one is less than essential

B+
