"The high esteem in which Lou Johnson is held by soul collectors is sadly disproportionate to the size of his catalog. He recorded only 10 singles and two albums in his ten year career. Sweet Southern Soul was his first and is, by common cognoscenti consensus, also his best album. Despite the fact that he started his career by working with Burt Bacharach and Hal David and recorded the original versions of several of their classic songs, next to nothing is known about Lou Johnson. He doesn't appear to have been interviewed in his prime, and he nowadays lives reclusively. Fortunately Johnson's recorded legacy speaks volumes for his talent. This album plays a major part in doing just that."
