Johnnie Taylor Philosophy Continues

LP (Item 28034) Stax, 1969 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

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.

Stax, 1979. Very Good+
A very, very nice album by Shirley that often gets overlooked next to her Woman To Woman album from the early 70s. This one's a sweet modern soul release, although it's still got Stax production by David Porter, and vocals by Shirley in her deep rich style. The groove is very nice, and the ...

Chaka
Warner, 1978. Very Good
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so! This beautiful album showed that she could stand very well on her own two feet without the help of Rufus, thank you. Of course, she's got some fantastic help from Arif Mardin, who works as ...
