An incredible bit of southern soul – and the kind of record that stands head to head with any of the classics on Stax or Atlantic from the 60s! Oscar Toney Jr may not have been as famous as Otis Redding, but in a letter on the back, Otis gives Toney plenty of credit for his abilities – and Oscar more than lives up to that promise on the grooves in the LP – a near-perfect batch of southern soul material recorded in Memphis by Chips Moman, produced by Papa Don, and with great backing work from players who include Bobby Emmons on organ, Tommy Cogbill on bass, and Reggie Young on guitar. The whole album has a warm, intimate feel – and almost even gets away from some of the cliches that were cluttering up other records. And even though most tracks are familiar from other artists, Toney sings them with a depth that's all his own – on titles that include "For Your Precious Love", "He Don't Love You", "Down In Texas", "Dark End Of The Street", "Any Day Now", "No Sad Song", "That's All I Want From You", "Moon River", "Do Right Woman", and "Turn On Your Love Light". © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
