Syleena Johnson’s ‘Rebirth Of Soul’ may come as a surprise to many who were expecting her latest offering to follow a similar path to her previous output – contemporary soulful egded R&B. This 10 track album is pure throwback gold consisting entirely of covers of classic and more obscure soul numbers from the 60s and 70s and it’s executed to perfection. With a live band in the studio (including some of Chicago’s best) and her father Syl on production the result is a well polished modern take on vintage soul. Syleena’s version of ‘Is It Because I’m Black’ is superb, Curtis’ ‘The Makings of You’ is delicately handled while she does justice to Etta’s ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ – no mean feat! The close up feel of ‘Chain Of Fools’ gallops along with Syleena’s voice sounding confident and powerful while ‘We Did It’ and ‘Make Me Yours’ offer an upbeat vibe to the album.
