Syl Johnson

“We Do It Together” (Twinight) 1971


A heavyweight soul workout that comes on mean as pugilist, pounding drums and an unstoppable riff make Syl Johnson’s pledges of romantic solidarity sound vaguely threatening. In its time, Johnson’s independent Twinight imprint was home to many of Chi-town’s most talented artists. Donny Hathaway helps out on the arrangement here while the Twinight house band lay down a truly blistering backing track.
