I vote for Slyvers II. 'We Can Make It If We Try' and 'Cry of a Dreamer' gives me the chills.

    Not nearly as good as II or I, but its the hardest to find of the three.

    What about the 2nd Foster Sylvers... harder to find but not as good too, right?

    I just sold the last of three selaed ones I had. But it sucks IMO.


    Sylvers II gets my vote for "Love Me Love Me Not".

    "cry of a dreamer" is indeed spine-chilling, and II is a more consistent lp (imo)

    Yeah, "I" sorta falls off after the heat of the first two tracks, but it's still worth is for those alone. Jazzanova sample is dope, too. My recording software bugged out on me last week, so I can't upoad right now, unfortunately.

    Its been a while since I've listened to I so I didn't wanna weigh in, but that was what I recall... the first one is about the hits, whereas the 2nd has jawdropping moments throughout...

  • III

    My fave "Whats it all about" + "Don't give up the good life"

    Saying that i also like "We can make it" + "I don't need to prove myself" from II, They were all big tunes back in the mid/late 80's + "Misdemeanor"

  • I vote for Slyvers II. 'We Can Make It If We Try'
    ditto .. hands down.

  • parsecparsec 5,087 Posts
    I like em both equally to be honest. Both dope records.

  • best sylvers track has to be on III: whats it all about
    II is ridiculous and I is dope


    advanced question:
    any Sylvers heat outside of 1,2,3 and foster sylvers??? i'm talking about any of those disco looking records. any good cuts? i truly dont know

    I think there's a couple decent slowjams but since I can't even remember if I wanted to keep them or not I hesitate to recommend... I'm always flipping to the last cut on each side of the 4-on-the-floor albums for the sweet R&B prize inside

    II, hands down.

    Amazing, amazing album.

    Whichever one has "ill never be ashamed again" and "stay away from me". "stay away from me" is the -est.

    II, hands down.

    Amazing, amazing album.

    On top of "We Can Make It..." and "Cry of a Dreamer" I really dig "I Don't Need to Prove Myself".

    Is that a sealed OG???

  • Yep. TSL has or had a lot of quantity on I, II, and Foster's S/T at one point.

    Yep. $40 for a sealed copy which is a-ok with me.

    I've seen both the Foster (S/T) and II by The Sylvers much cheaper here in Killwaukee, at our highest priced store. Interesting......

    sealed though? I thought those records were $30-ish, no?

    No, not sealed, but I got my Foster (S/T) jawn for $20. I saw II for cheaper, like maybe 12 bucks. And trust me, dude sells stuff that's usually VG+ or better.
