Single-disc reissue combining Johnson's rare initial two albums, originally released on Twinight in 1968 and 1970. His debut, Dresses Too Short, was a decent but derivative mix of cheery, uptempo Southern soul, somewhat in the mold of Joe Tex (in fact one of the cuts, "I'll Take Those Skinny Legs," and is an obvious takeoff of Tex's hit "Skinny Legs and All"). Ode to Soul Man" also shows that Johnson was listening to a lot of James Brown at this point.

Johnson’s first album (Dresses Too Short) was fairly innocuous good-time soul, but he’d obviously been doing some thinking about the world around him in the interim between it and his second release. Is It Because I’m Black is characterized by socially conscious songwriting, especially in the ute title track, an elongated, serious statement of black pride with a sad funk-blues groove

A little gem in the Southern Soul canon is Syl Johnson’s first Twinight album, released in 1968. More a collection of A- and B-sides, there nonetheless isn’t a trace of filler here. Syl, Yes !!! all his music is priceless and timeless.
