74 is the New 20, Syl Johnson, Say Hell Yeah!

Putting everyone in the house to shame, Syl Johnson showed us at Southpaw why he will always be cooler. Flanked with the talents of the four lovely singers from The Sweet Divines on his right, while The Divine Soul Rhythm Band had his back, Syl made us all (band included) feel as if we had taken a ride on the Mothersoulship back in time. Always ones to bust some moves, sometimes inappropriately, one of the 106thstreeters was left immobile, regardless of the fat Knob Creek in hand, as the soulship mesmerized.
