Johnnie Taylor Philosophy Continues

LP (Item 28034) Stax, 1969 — Condition: Very Good
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

Funky soul from Johnnie Taylor – a set that mixes tight core grooving with some larger arrangements from Bert Keyes and Rudy Robinson – a perfect blend that shows why Taylor easily stood out from some of his bluesy contemporaries! It's clear that Johnnie's just the right guy to handle a setting this hip – and since he's got Marvell Thomas on keyboards, Steve Cropper on guitar, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Al Jackson on drums, there's more than enough kick at the bottom to keep things grooving. Titles include the great originals "I Had A Fight With Love", and "Separation Line" – plus hip takes on "Testify", "It's Your Thing", "Games People Play", and "Love Is A Hurtin Thing". (Cover has a factory sticker, and staining along the opening.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A very, very nice album by Shirley that often gets overlooked next to her Woman To Woman album from the early 70s.

Mr Big Stuff
Stax, 1970. Very Good+
Jean Knight's classic – and a monumental album of funky female soul that was one of the best albums in the "second generation" Stax era! You probably know the title cut, as it was her biggest hit, and the inspiration for loads of "answer" songs (some of which came from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Searching
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great!
