Syl Johnson - Foxy Brown b/w Tripping On Your Love

"Foxy Brown" is a throw back to the late-’70s Blaxploitation movie fad, replete with chinky disco guitars, whispered backing vocals, and voodoo funk rhythms.

As Syl Johnson approached the end of his third decade in the entertainment business, the artist-songwriter-producer-label owner-restauranteur was at an artistic crossroads. His soul man and Memphis years were behind him, Wu-Tang and an unlikely Grammy nomination a ways off in the distance. His December 1988 LP Foxy Brown found Syl as a middle-aged bluesman in search of a hit. The album’s title track is a throw back to the late-’70s Blaxploitation movie fad, replete with chinky disco guitars, whispered backing vocals, and voodoo funk rhythms.
