LABEL:   Mr Bongo

ARTISTS: The Sylvers
RELEASE DATE: 2018-01-01
FORMAT: 12" Vinyl
STYLE: Soul, Reissue

This is a masterpiece. Beautiful, golden-era soul written by Leon Sylvers III, produced by Jerry Butler and Keg Johnson.The Sylvers were a family from Los Angeles who were very successful during the 70’s and into the early 80’s, with chart hits – deep into pop-disco territory by then! – including ‘Boogie Fever’, ‘Hot Line’ and ‘High School Dance’. This is the groups second album, from 1973, and is one of their strongest. Opening with the awesome mid-tempo ‘We Can Make It If We Try’ the record moves through funk, boogie and deep soul moods, finishing on a hazy, acapella version of The Beatles ‘Yesterday’. The Sylvers always provide a goldmine of samples. This album has been flipped by Madlib (for MF DOOM), Homeboy Sandman, 50 Cent, Ghostface Killah, Black Milk, Roc Marciano, David Banner & 9th Wonder and more.
