Numero Group: By The Numbers

Soul Survivors

During the summer of 1981 Syl Johnson, Wilson Picket, Don Covay, & Solomon Burke all hit the stage at the Mudd Club in Tribeca. Aaron Fuchs’ weighed in on Syl’s set for the October issue of NY Rocker…

“The set we caught was odd: drunk and free-associating, alternately singing, talking and blowing on a harmonica, Johnson emerged as a more complex if no less gifted entertainer than we’d imagined, a lot closer to Richard Pryor than Muddy Waters.”
