Syl Johnson - Back For A Taste Of Your Love.
Syl Johnson: Uptown Shakedown Some worthy soul veterans turn disco into commercial or even artistic regeneration. For Johnson, who here abandons the rough, bluesy intensity of Total Explosion, disco means compromised. Mystery Lady" (she wears a mask) and "Let's Dance for Love" affect post-hustle hipness but don't achieve it, lyrically or musically, which may be why the Otis Redding medley and the Brenton Wood cover sound so half-assed.
