A re-release of this classic album by Syl Johnson, one of the biggest stars at the Hi-stable. Like most albums at Hi, it is produced by Willie Mitchell, the man who made Al Green sign up to the label. He produced Greens best work. The sound of this album is typical for Hi records of this era. This is some of Mitchells best production work, using all of the songwriting and musician resources the label had.
