SYL JOHNSON

“Try My Love Again” /” Starting Tomorrow” (Hit and Run Records) 7′

Catalog: HR 1519
Release Date: 1st August 2020

Flying back from a US buying trip through Chicago, one afternoon I went to see Syl. He gave me a CDR with these 2 unreleased tracks on and they’ve been with me waiting on a  release ever since. 

Subsequent to that visit he pacted with Numero. I tried to lease ‘Try’ from them, they declined – then released it themselves in 2011 as part of the Syl 45s box-set. Syl now has control of his masters again and HR 1519 is the first time it’s been available as a stand-alone 45.  It’s classic Syl Johnson Twinight era.  Our flip is completely unreleased and was to be included on an unreleased 1981 Shama LP,  cut in Hollywood with Darryl Carter.
