Complete Mythology (4CD/6LP Boxed Set)

Numero Group

5 out of 5 stars

I don’t care how glamorous the big labels make their boxes this year, nothing — and I mean nothing — is more stunning than Numero’s release of Syl Johnson’s Complete Mythology. Last year, Numero Group flexed their holiday muscle with Light On the South Side, a compilation of mid-’70s Chicago soul artists. This year, they continue to show that boutique labels are perfect for producing lovingly packaged sets like this four CD/six LP work of art. Johnson has more Top 40 R& B hits than most artists have releases, and he’s one of the most heavily sampled musicians in the history of recorded music, but this set alone gives Johnson the due he deserves, and I think it’s the best box release of the season.                    — Brian F.
