Johnny Gill

No .. it's his fault
Welcome to the first edition of the the show for 2015, both myself and Mickey would like to say thanks for all the support that you gave the program and website in 2014, and a Happy New Year for 2015 too. Now all the festive stuff is over it's back to the real deal and this week I'll be featuring the new album from Johnny Gill, that's "Game Changer," and it's been a while since Johnny had some new product out, and I have to say this album is a grower .. kinda gets under your skin after a few plays. Been in rotation in my car over the last few weeks and I find myself looking for it ... always a good sign, lol. I've selected, as always, 3 tracks I think you might enjoy.

Motown's Tiller guys!
Other new music to start the year comes from Donell Sullivan. Karen Bernod and Mr X [Safford.] Something that is not quite in the normal 'S-O-S bag,' is a new release by Lysa & Chip ft Lill' Runt, an interesting take on the Denise Williams' classic 'b' side " 'Cause You Love Me," like I say not normal S-O-S but I like it. This years format will stay pretty similar, the old school classics lined up right next to the new product that's hitting the streets. Please remember to let me know if I miss something new, it's vital we hear new music ... that's tomorrows old school! look out for a couple of Motown classics from David Ruffin and Paul Williams, being two of the all time great singers ... looking back to when they're apart of the Temptations, just truly superb. Take a moment to watch the video at the foot of this page, just people we lost in 2014.

Ok on to the good stuff sit back and enjoy , I say it time and time again please share the Science of Soul link with a friend it helps us to continue to grow...the more we reach the more we teach.. (Pod link)

Johnny Gill's biography:
Gill's recording career began in 1983, at the age of 17, when his childhood friend, singer Stacy Lattisaw, convinced him to record a demo. This demo fell into the hands of the president of Atlantic Records, and his self-titled debut album was released shortly thereafter- featuring the minor hit "Super Love". On this album, Gill played guitar, bass, bongos, and drums in addition to performing lead and background vocals. Gill then teamed up with Stacy for a duet album, which featured their first hit together- the title track, "Perfect Combination". A second album on Atlantic Records yielded the song "Half Crazy".
