Syl Johnson: Truth Teller

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, February 1975

ALMOST INEVITABLY, the one line of questioning that any interviewer takes with Syl Johnson involves Al Green, Willie Mitchell and Hi Records. Which is understandable if Syl's most recent career is all that you're concerned with and if you subscribe wrongly to the impression that Syl is bound to be second main man in respect of the company, then get ready for the changes.
