Syl Johnson – Diamond in the Rough


Categories: , , ,


This second of three underrated releases for Hi finds Syl Johnson slowly but surely transforming from a credulous loser into a standup guy no one messes around with. Diamond in the Rough could be viewed as a creative bridge between the slightly formulaic Hi approach of 1973’s Back for a Taste of Your Love and the more bluesy and rewarding Total Explosion from 1975.
