  1. You (5:52)
  2. My Music (5:42)
Review: Another gem from the archives of Des Moines' favourite son: Samuel Jonathan Johnson - gets a much needed official reissue here. Johnson came from a family of musicians who were originally based in the Midwest. When he was six years old, the family moved to New York City, where he played for several churches and quickly gained notoriety as one of the city's finest musicians. His LP My Music was released in Europe to modest acclaim, but never received recognition back home. Disappointed in the outcome, he went into early retirement as a recording artist and began to work with local bands in the New York area. The 12" mix featured here of "You" combines the original funk riffs, captivating string arrangements and uplifting piano with a squelchy lead synth - which elevates the track to a whole new level. The aforementioned "My Music" on the B side is now a favourite with the diggers - spiritual soul from the one and only Samuel Jonathan Johnson.

  2. Reason For The Reason (3:01)
Review: Criminally under-prolific soul man SJJ only ever released one album - My Music in 1978 - but his legacy and influence remains strong and the album enjoyed a re-release as recently as 2014. Neither, however, have either of these highlights been pressed to 45 until now. "Sweet Love" is a deliciously funky slice with a rampant slap bass and juicy Rhodes while "Reason For The Reason" charges with more of a spiritual edge as it breaks down into beautiful gospel-level vocals. There are no reasons for sleeping on this...
